Machine Men Signs With Century Media
Finnish Machine Men signs longterm worldwide deal with Century Media Records.
Earning a reputation as an excellent live band, these young musicians (in their early Twenties) created quite a buzz in the realm of melodic metal with their self-titled MCD (2002) and especially their debut album “Scars & Wounds”, which was released in their homeland Finland in 2003 and followed up by a full European launch in Spring 2004 via their former label Dynamic Arts Records, with praising media reaction claiming the band to be the most hopeful newcomer of their kind.
The band consist of Antony (Vocals), J-V (Guitar), Jani (Guitar), Eero (Bass) as well as Jarno (Drums) and having been influenced by classic metal acts such as Iron Maiden or vintage Queensrÿche, Machine Men are determined to bring along a fresh edge within their style to build a bridge from the golden ‘80s to the best of modern metal for all fans of the style.
Their new album “Elegies” was recorded by Thunderstone’s Nino Laurenne at Sonic Pump Studios (Omnium Gatherum, Thunderstone, etc.) and then mastered at the established Finnvox Studios, comes with classy artwork by Norwegian artist Christian Ruud (Tristania, Madder Mortem, etc.) and it includes 9 catchy and yet profoundly melodic new songs as well as a cover version of Bruce Dickinson’s “Freak”.
The final track-list of “Elegies” is as follows:
1. Falling (3:05)
2. Dream & Religion (3:49)
3. Apathy (5:10)
4. Back From The Days (3:28)
5. The Traitor (3:55)
6. October (6:35)
7. Daytime Theatre (4:58)
8. Doors Of Resurrection (4:10)
9. From Sunrise To Sunset (6:04)
10. Freak (4:15)
“Elegies” is scheduled for a European release via Century Media Records on July 25th, 2005 and Machine Men will already be promoting their new release on these upcoming shows:
Jul. 16 Ilosaarirock (FIN) – Joensuu / Metelli-Club
