MACHINAE SUPREMACY "Redeemer"

Stepping the path of the bands playing atmospheric Metal with plenty Speed fragments, this very quintet mingles the Swedish sound with the Finnish one, and SENTENCED is probably the most appropriate in order of comparison. The masculine vocal is a rather Heavy Metal one, that doesn't fit very well the harmony created by the instrumentation, the sound is fine enough, but it is at the edge to commercial. I tend to believe these Swedes sound good in live performances, plus you cannot dislike the explosive rhythm. I only enjoyed the fragments without voice, while the keyboard is played at its most, reminding me of AMORPHIS debut. An album placed on the average line, lacking the Dark scent, but which is saturated in melodious Metal elements showing even some Rock shades, and I can spot certain similarities with HIM. It is not Love Metal, but I certainly cannot reduce it solely to Atmospheric Metal.
