MACHINERGY "Sounds Evolution" 2014

Mensagem por Agent em 28/6/2014, 20:09



Interesting music from Portugal. The sunny country along the Atlantic coast isn't that much known for heavy metal, of course with some exceptions like Moonspell.

But the other day I got a CD from a band called Machinergy. I haven't heard about the band before and maybe it's the same with you. So who are they? The band is a trio. It's Rui Vieira (v/g) and Helder Rodrigues (d) who founded the band in 2006 in Arruda Dos Vinhos, Portugal. Machinergy gets completed by bass player Nuno Mariano.

The music they play can be best described as thrash metal with some parallels to the earlier Sepultura and some German thrash metal roots. The vocals have some death metal influences, eventhough I don't want to talk about real growls. But Vieira keeps the vocals deep and rough, which fits the sound very good.

"Sounds evolution" comes with 10 songs which are all quite good. The tracks aren't build up too complicated. They are all kept more simple and straight-forward. This makes the entire album easy accessable and entertaining. It is not the musicial complexity which is the joy of this record. It's the unleashed energy of the youth which makes this album a cool one. It's good headbanging stuff.

The production is on a good level to. It provides the songs with the power they deserve. In addition the mix is done quite well too.

All in all "Sounds evolution" is a good thrash metal album from a band which you should have on your radar. It's worth to give it a try.

(7/10)

As an act of sympathy, I’m putting Machinergy up today seeing as their national team got tonked by Germany yesterday. Being English, something niggles about supporting the Germans, but I’d support almost any side if they’re playing against The Most Petulant Player On The Planet, Ronaldo. Apologies to the rest of the Portuguese team – nothing against them.

But it’s worked in Machinergy’s favour. Based in Arruda dos Vinhos and playing together since 2006, they’re a thrash band in the classic style and have just released their new album, Sounds Evolution. You can download it for €10 via their bandcamp page.

Musically, it’s wonderfully old-school thrash with harsh/death-style vocals. Strident guitars and thumping drums which should stir up a pit in any decent venue. Remember when thrash bands did ten tracks of brutal, fast, pounding music and released it as an album without a thought for appealing to people outside the genre? Machinergy have recaptured those days.

Nothing experimental, nothing balladic, no novelties. Just punching, grinding, screaming thrash metal. If something’s not broken, there’s no need to try and fix it. I’m glad there are bands out there who also recognise this.

Os thrashers de Arruda dos Vinhos, Machinergy contam com um novo registo. Trata-se de “Sounds Evolution”, o segundo álbum da banda composto por 10 temas e que pode ser adquirido em formato digital via Bandcamp.

Da audição do novo registo, verifica-se uma evolução na continuidade por parte da banda que debita um Thrash Metal old school, directo e agressivo como ditam as leis. Destaque para a boa captação feita pela própria banda que consegue um som limpo sem prejudicar a agressividade que se pretende neste género.

Ainda sobre “”Sounds Evolution”, merece realce para a competência dos músicos que compõem a banda, com uma secção rítmica abrasiva aliada aos riffs cortantes da guitarra de Rui Vieira, ele também em bom nível com uma vocalização rasgada à boa escola Thrash.

El infernal trio thrashero proveniente desde tierras lusitanas acaba de realizar su Segundo LP después de cuatro años tras el lanzamiento de lo que fuera su debut “Rhytmotion”. En ellos desde el primer segundo podrás encontrar ese tipo de thrash death metal desatado y vandalizante, plenamente inspirado en el material ochentero de bandas como Sepultura, Overdose o Volcano, por poner algunas comparaciones, vale decir, ese tipo de thrash que desde el primer al último suspiro ataca sin contemplación alguna con temas en general llenos de vigor y brutalidad, manteniendo un nivel bastante parejo sin mayores altos y bajos entre tema y tema, lo cual a ratos puede ir en desmedro de la variedad que casi todo álbum se le debiera pedir en pos de no terminar aburriendo. Al menos las primeras tandas de riffs azotan intempestivamente y sin ánimo de probar tesituras delicadas ni mucho menos, cortes como “Sounds Evolution” o “Furia” son una entrada contestaría y triunfal en este aspecto, con un vocalista como Rui Vieira (también guitarrista) que presiona en cada nota para lograr esa imagen y sonido endurecido que recuerda el aspecto ochentero de las bandas nombradas, lo que sumado al potente batero Helder Rodrigues terminas por redondear una placa que si bien no presenta muchos atisbos de variedad, si mantiene una convicción indeclinable por aquel metal de corte clásico.

En materia de sonido se puede decir que poseen una producción decentemente lograda, con la batería mandando incluso por sobre el resto de los instrumentos, rápida y asesina en cada tema con composiciones que aún cuando su línea estilística unidireccional no logra caer en el saco de bandas que hoy por hoy busca una y otra vez sacar ideas inspirándose en el viejo material de Slayer o Kreator. Amantes de la velocidad a poner ojo sobre esta banda, mucho power y brutalidad emanan de composiciones como “Venomith”, “Antagonista” o el moshero sonido de “Cada Falso”, aunque mucho me ha simpatizado el groovie “Hammer” y por supuesto “Carne & Mal” que con su combinación de riffs algo más ralentizados en la partida y después con su torbellino a mil por hora si que pueden dar pie para pedirles algo más de cara a un siguiente trabajo. Más info y detalles sobre estos portugueses en https://www.facebook.com/machinergy .

Segundo registo para os Machinergy e, uma surpresa. «Sounds Evolution» pega em tudo o que a banda fez no passado e dá o passo em frente. Liderados por Rui Vieira e com a estreia, em disco de longa duração de Nuno Mariano. «Sounds Evolution» é sempre a «cascar», como se a banda estivesse aos comandos de um rolo compressor desenfreado. Se no passado, talvez devido a uma musicalidade mais maquinal, se pudessem encontrar semelhanças entre os Machinergy e Fear Factory, agora tal não acontece. Aliás, se de comparações se fala, porque não comparar este disco com «Beneath the Remains» ou com algo de Destruction antigo.
Com uma secção rítmica de louvar, onde se destaca a prestação de Hélder Rodrigues que em conjunto com Nuno Mariano faz a muralha sonora da banda que encontra na voz de Rui Vieira, o acompanhamento perfeito e a peça final.
Como cereja no topo do bolo, se tal fosse possível num disco com tanto peso e Groove, destaca-se o facto de a banda ter temas tanto em inglês como em português o que dá um toque «muito nosso» a um disco já de si bastante equilibrado e coeso.
Não vou destacar malhas por respeito a todas elas e por, no conjunto, todas elas se completarem e complementarem.
Em suma, «Sound Evolution» é um passo seguro de uma banda que tem o futuro há sua frente… e que futuro dizemos nós.

We at WoodBangers have been doing our thing for about a year now, and we are already getting our opportunity to see a band make their way around for a second review. We have covered Machinergy before, but have absolutely no problem whatsoever covering them again. They are one hard-working, ass-busting, ball-breaking metal band that will blow the doors off of any venue, and they are currently releasing fresh material that will keep heads banging and leave their listeners begging for more.

We had mentioned towards the end of the last review that we did for Machinergy that they were in the studio working on songs for a new album. Well, here it is! “Sounds Evolution” is the second full-length album by Machinergy in which they are in the process of releasing. WoodBangers has had an opportunity to give it a listen and we can certainly say that this band lives up to anything good that can be said about them and more. This is one bad-ass album; just as much, if not, more so than their first album. New songs such as “Machine Gun Anger” and "Carne & Mal" are sure to keep heads on a swivel and circle pits whirling.

Machinergy is a band of greatly talented musicians who create metal music that is finely crafted to perfection and they write brilliant songs. They are one of those metal bands that can make someone think “Yeah…I want to be like them…I want to make music like them.” “Sounds Evolution” can be sampled at https://soundcloud.com/machinergy/sets/sounds-evolution, and https://machinergy.bandcamp.com/album/sounds-evolution. Machinergy is also one of WoodBangers very own, so look for their band page on our members site, as well.

The album was mixed, mastered, and produced all by the band themselves. They are associated with Metal Soldiers Records (Portugal) and Secret Port Records (Greece). Their website is http://www.machinergy.com.

I'ts always a privilege to have the opportunity to review fresh bands from around the world.

Portuguese Thrash/Death/Industrial Machinergy is a well-produced band that will no doubt blow your speakers (you WILL crank it up!) and please thrash and death metal fans alike.

Crunchy riffs fill the entire album and the energy created by Nuno, Rui and Helder is palpable. These guys are committed to their brand of metal. I can't help but be reminded of some aspects of Sepultura, perhaps due to the Brazil/Portugal connections. An even more direct comparison could be made with supergroup The Mist, also from Brazil, who in the mid 90s incorporated subtle industrial elements to their thrashy style.

The title track and "Carne e Mal" are the highlights for me but 10 solid tracks means you will find your own favourites.

Check out Machinergy @ https://soundcloud.com/machinergy/sets/sounds-evolution

MACHINERGY is a three-piece Death/Industrial/Thrash Metal band from Portugal. “Sounds Evolution” is their first, full length album, on an independent record label. The album contains ten tracks. The title track, “Sounds Evolution,” leads us off. A dark, sinister riff gives way to a guttural growl, and slow, steady double bass drumming. Then it picks up speed and settles into a Thrash style riff, with shouted vocals. Stylistically it is somewhere between the worlds of Death and Thrash Metal. “Furia” continues in the same vein, though the vocals are a bit lower, more powerful and tortured, as does “Machine Gun Anger.” If they are not careful here, the album is in danger of running together. Cautiously, the chords are all built in the key of low E, which gives a semblance of too much uniformity. Fortunately, “Venomith” begins with some atmosphere, and a little more spirit behind the riffing. The key remains the same however, and even the pacing is very similar. “Antagonista” completes the half-way mark on the album, and so far, only the vocal style carries any variance to their sound.

“Carne and Mal” is once again born from the same key and pace, while “Cada Falso” has a little more punch and accentuation, with a thicker chorus. “Waterwar” hints at a Middle Eastern sound with the opening, but falls right back to the same key. With “Hammer,” however, they were able to work in a little more variegate to the sound they have presented thus far. It is an instrumental, and the hard driven riff does indeed sound like a hammer pounding away in fury. “Paraphernalia” closes the album, with a Russian dancing jig at the beginning. We are once again back to the key of E. Though the riff in the verses is fairly trite, I do enjoy the part where the chord progression goes down and down in a running riff. I realize that a lot of Death and even Thrash Metal can be rather unforgiving in terms of stylistic limitations, but there are plenty of bands in the genre who have found ways to claim their own, expanding and dynamic sound within thousands of their peer groups. With MACHINERGY, it really sounds like the band found a formula for composition that they like, and applied it consistently to the album as a whole. There is very little stretching here. I am not expecting them to change their sound from one track to the next, but the lack of diversity here is glaring, in my opinion. The musicianship and brutality is just fine, they just need to work on some originality.

5/10

This album is the the sophomore album of Machinergy.
Pros of this album:
1. The vocalist! Damn, this guy can growl and change his tone that is pure aggression!
2. You can hear the persistence of the rhythm section and back the vocalist perfectly.
3. Everyone's in time! I love hearing when not so well known bands have a good musical sense.
4. The pads in between songs/sections are gorgeous and mysterious. Very spacey
5. Sound is super thick and awesome
6. Paraphernalia got me really excited because it starts with the Russian folk song "Kalinka" but...
Cons of this album:
1. ...I thought it was gonna be a cover but it completely changed pace and the whole sample there was kinda awkward and out of place. Might as well not have put it in there.
2. It sounds like every song is in the same key
3. The drums by the third song could use some variety, than the same 8th note ride.
4. Feels like I've heard some of these riffs before somewhere and whatnot
This album overall had some very strong points but some negatives that really brought down there score. 7/10
Their bandcamp to listen to this album: https://machinergy.bandcamp.com/album/sounds-evolution

4 anos depois do promissor “Rhythmotion” o trio de Arruda dos Vinhos volta à carga com “Sounds Evolution”, um álbum que vem afirmar ainda mais a maturidade e seriedade da banda, um grande registo com um conceito relacionado com os lançamentos anteriores bastando para isso ter em atenção o paralelo dos títulos dos 3 registos da banda: “Rhythmotion”, “Rhythm Between Sounds” e “Sounds Evolution”.

O álbum é composto por 10 faixas bem coesas, do início ao fim, onde se destacam os riffs agressivos, directos, e os efeitos industriais que dão um toque especial à sonoridade da banda e a distingue das demais, ainda mais que no primeiro álbum. Quanto à produção, é da mais cuidada e profissional que se pode ouvir por cá, se calhar até demasiado limpinha para o som da banda. Os temas vão alternando entre o inglês e o português, e nalguns casos até na letra da mesma música como é o caso da viciante “Furia” ou na “Cada Falso”, possivelmente a faixa mais anos 80 do álbum. “Sounds Evolution” e “Machine Gun Anger” são as faixas que mais se aproximam da batida do álbum anterior mas esta segunda tem uma parte mais ambiental verdadeiramente assustadora, onde se ouve um sino e um som estranho, algo muito incomum nas bandas de Thrash. “Venomith” é na minha opinião o tema mais bem conseguido, o início é arrepiante, a letra é das mais originais e os riffs dos melhores que a banda já fez. “Waterwar” é um tema absolutamente épico com os vocais de Célia Ramos a dar um toque especial ao som da banda, numa música com um conceito bastante especial e preocupante, e esperemos que não passe duma premonição. E como se os vocais femininos não fossem suficientemente belos para distinguir este tema a banda ainda lhe acrescenta melodias médio-orientais sublimes. Destaque também para os temas em português “Antagonista" e “Carne & Mal" e claro, para a instrumental “Hammer”.

Era um dos álbuns mais esperados do ano (para mim) e não tenho duvidas nenhumas de que este triunvirato (Ruy/Hélder/Mariano) ainda tem muitas cartas para dar. São uns dos músicos mais talentosos do país e dos poucos a ter a preocupação de fazer tudo da maneira mais cuidada possível. O resultado está aqui, e isto vai rodar bastante durante muito tempo.

MACHINERGY (PORTUGAL)

The debut: this is steam-roller modern industrial thrash which will overwhelm you with sterile robotic riffs from beginning to end, but still has its charm with its dispassionate atmosphere and sudden digressions into something truly melodic and offbeat (check out the angelic female vocals on "Godus") all this topped by scary low-tuned death metal vocals which are quite intelligible for most of the time. The established mechanical "idyll" goes out the window with the intense headbanger "Incendiario" which will rock your futuristic world big time although you will have no problems recapturing it with the final string of predictable moody industrial thrashers. This is not a bad tribute to the stagnant at the time industrial scene, and will remind of some legends from the past like Zoon, Swamp Terrorists, Fetish 69, Soulstorm, etc. The guys were active during the 90's under the name Imunity, and have 4 demos released of classic thrash/death metal.
The EP carries on in the same vein pouring dry sterile rhythms over the listener who will be spared on the nice energizer "Trapollution" which is a cool industrial thrasher unfortunately lasting for just over a minute. As a whole the approach is less serious with a somewhat hardcore aesthetics attached to it not only due to the short song length, but also because of the carefree riff-patterns and the loose drunken vocal delivery.
"Sounds Evolution" is a more aggressive offering a major statement of intent being the opening title-track which ia a furious thrash/deathster which is followed by another "furia" right after, "Furia". Mercy is seldom shown here the "bombs" falling one after another industrial now barely covered on some of the more abrasive moments ("Venomith"). "Antagonista" is an excellent more technically-executed cut, and "Carne & Mal" & "Cada Falso" are sure-handed head-splitters, before "Waterwar" comes forward with great female vocals in the beginning, and with a portion of heavier volcanic mid-paced guitars. The exiting duo is more on the jolly carefree side with an overt hardcore edge, but is a welcome shift from the brutal delivery heard previously which is the guys' finest hour so far.

Next, from Portugal comes the latest release from heavy metal band Machinergy entitled "Sounds Evolution". The album was released in June through Metal Soldiers Records and this new batch of ten-songs shows the strength this trio of musicians display in their performances. The thrash-like speed of their music and the growling vocals of the title track open the album with a blast of metal music energy. They look to overpower you with the neck-breaking speed of "Furia" and show glimpses of brilliance with the early Metallica-feel of "Antagonista". The album finishes with Machinergy bringing down the "Hammer", a quick, but powerful instrumental and the final heavy hitting blow of "Paraphernalia". To find out more about Machinergy and their new album "Sounds Evolution", please visit their Facebook page at facebook.com/machinergy.

La fusión de la maquina con la energía, pero en versión Metal, a eso se refiere el nombre de esta agrupación Portuguesa que se caracteriza por detonar un eficiente Death Metal con influencias modernas y una pizca de efectos electrónicos, lo que lo hace un buen Metal moderno y experimental.
Vamos a decir que el primer tema se escucha potente, con la energía que piensan proyectar a través de sus temas, voz firme sin exageraciones, alguno que otro riff del death clásico y manejándose a velocidades en las que nadie sufre un accidente.
Todo aparentemente bien hasta que notas que ya pasaron 2, 3, 4, hasta 5 temas y los ritmos no han variado del todo, aspecto que los hace caer en una monotonía de la cual depende tu estancia frente a las bocinas.
Algunos temas aparecen titulados en inglés y otros en su idioma nativo “Portugués”, entre los cuáles pude leer que se tomaron la molestia de agregar la traducción entre paréntesis, como por ejemplo: Irás morrer! (You will die!) o Mente é podre (Mind is rot), a huevo! Ahí están mis clases de ese idioma que a veces creo entender pero que a veces me frustra un poco.
La portada (como podrán ver) puede pasar desapercibida para aquellos posibles compradores que anden en busca de Metal, pues yo más bien le veo facha para algo más electrónico. Valoración 7/10

The Portuguese death-thrash power trio Machinergy consists of guitarist/vocalist Rui Vieira, bassist Nuno Mariano and drummer Helder Rodrigues. This is their latest full length (the followup to 2010’s Rhythmotion) and a decent introduction to the band if you’re becoming familiar with them just now. The ten tracks comprising Sounds Evolution sound closest to 80s thrash, with notable influence from late 80s/early 90s Sepultura in the choruses. There is something in the musicianship containing the primal mood we’ve come to appreciate from South American thrash since it was established as a leading home base for extreme metal. This is especially evident in the lead and backing vocals; their delivery sounds as if they could go right through your brain if you paid close enough attention. The production is clear enough to demonstrate the band’s relentless approach to playing. Your best bet for finding information about the band is to peruse their Youtube profile where there are documentary videos as well as promotional. Sounds Evolution is to be released by the Portuguese label Metal Soldiers Records and the Greek label Secret Port Records.

Hailing from Portugal the gents from the quite frankly awesomely named Machinergy bring us their new album Sounds Evolution. Filled with deep dark grungy thrash this album really is one to take your anger out on. Opening with title track Sounds Evolution we are thrown into a fast paced flurry of rhythmic guitars and drum destroying that really spikes your interest from the off. As the drums slam away relentlessly behind the guitars and vocals of Rui Vieira, you can hear how blatantly dark, evil the vocals are as they are delivered with an almost pained edge that really does add a touch of agony of emotion to the track, however this does not end here. Moving into Furia and Machine Gun Anger the beat down upon the band instruments continues, loud heavy and pain filled these tracks ooze both meaning and skill. Rui’s guitars although not outlandish become mesmerizing which is only further compounded by the whipping that Helder Rodrigues’s drums receive. Its only at this point it hit me… these guys are a three piece! But hell do they sound like one? …not in any way! The sound and brutality Machinergy manage to beat out of their instruments is truly brilliant. The album drops in pace but not in sound for Venomith, stuffed full of hard edged riffs the context on which he album is based continues. Antagonsita possibly the song of the album it is a beauty of track rammed full of everything a metal song should have; brutality, vocal and instrumental emotion and heavy dark undertones. Cada Falso steps up the game further, adding more lashings of hard sharp riffs with quick tone changes and direction of speed. As the album comes to a close Machinergy continue as they have throughout the album, but it is hard not to notice the slightly more melodic riffs that enter the game from as well as some sublime operatic female backing vocal Waterwar through the instrumental track Hammer which is crammed with wonderfully placed mini breakdowns that send your head shaking side to side and your fist hammering down on you knees with great assertion. Final track Paraphernalia is somewhat disappointingly placed in my opinion. Probably the weakest track on the album, that is stretched out and feels very bare compared to the rest of the album until the riff kicks in on the very simplistic chorus. It a shame really as an album of this quality deserves a much better ending! So, hard day at the office? Come home finding you want to break shit? Why not try this gem of an album first and save a bit of money. Let Machinergy forcefully insert their brand of dark emotion filled grungy thrash into your ears and see how that feels, let me tell you… it feels damn good! 8/10

Machinergy es una banda portuguesa compuesta por los músicos Rui Vieira (Voz y Guitarra), Helder Rodrigues (Batería) y Nuno Mariano (Bajo) que propone un Thrash Metal agresivo e influenciado por bandas del old school, y que además combina elementos del Death Metal e Industrial, haciendo que su propuesta suene interesante. Esta banda portuguesa lleva activa desde el 2006 y en el 2014 lanzan su segundo trabajo de larga duración titulado Sounds Evolution, un título que de primera impresión es llamativo.

Este trabajo se compone de 10 temas, que como se menciona al inicio la base principal es un Thrash bastante agresivo, sin ningún tipo de tapujos, desde el tema que da título al álbum Sounds Evolution, esta banda nos sumerge por un viaje de riffs asesinos y donde la batería va con todo. Los siguientes temas Furia y Machine Gun Anger siguen explotando la agresividad musical, sin variar mucho en los riffs y en el ritmo de la batería. Por otro lado temas como Venomith y Cada Falso, son los encargados de poner un sabor más brutal y mosheable al disco.

En cuanto a la producción y mezcla de Sounds Evolution, están a un muy buen nivel, permitiendo apreciar muy bien cada instrumento, aunque el bajo por momentos se tiende a perder un poco, igual no es algo que afecte la escucha, al final el disco termina siendo un trabajo agradable de escuchar, a pesar de que no hay una gran variación musical entre una canción y la otra, no presenta algún momento de decadencia, la base thrashera del disco es sólida y agresiva, además la voz de Rui Vieira sin duda le sienta muy bien a la música de esta banda.

Para cualquier información sobre esta banda densen una vuelta por su Facebook https://www.facebook.com/machinergy o bien si desean escuchar este trabajo (y otros anteriores), y porque no apoyarlos también, visiten su Bandcamp https://machinergy.bandcamp.com/album/sounds-evolution Machinergy sin duda es otra banda portuguesa que tiene un gran futuro por delante.

Calificación: 7/10

MACHINERGY "SOUNDS EVOLUTION" 2014

Calmons-nous... Comment vai-je pouvoir chroniquer ce disque sans tomber dans la classique chronique typique qu'on fait en tombant sur un skeud qui n'apporte rien de neuf, voire que sent un peu la grosse réchauffe? Commençons donc par discuter un peu da la production. Elle est bonne, consistante, et met bien en avant tous les instruments de ce trio portugais. Cette prod' est claire, aérée et tout est bien équilibré.

Je vais passer sur "Sounds Evolution", la compo d'ouverture qui est franchement mauvaise, pour m'attarder un peu plus sur "Fúria" qui est joué en mid-tempo quasiment tout du long, avec un seul petit break salvateur qui tombe à pic, en plus il est très bon ce break."M.G.A. (Machine Gun Anger)" continue sur le mid-tempo ultra basique, que ça soit à la batterir ou au niveau des riffs de gratte. C'est moi où j'ai l'impression que les lyrics sont usées jusqu'à la corde? Bref, ne nous énervons pas non plus sur le chant qui est plus que moyen, en plus, l'écho dans la voix qu'il y a parfois (surtout au refrain) dans ce titre fait démodé au plus haut point.Mid-tempo de la première à la dernière seconde. L'emsemble donne une impression de technicité proche du néant, avec le peu d'idées qui vont avec. "Venomith" commence mieux, un gros riff et un batteur plus calme... Ah non, ça reprend au même tempo... Ah non, ça recommence comme au début morceau. Bon bref, la structure de ce titre-là est immuable elle aussi, peu intéressante. La compo est plus lourde, pour le moment c'est la meilleure de l'album grâce en partie à la prod' magistrale. Je saute les morceaux rapidement car ils sont répétitifs au possible, j'atterris sur "Waterwar". Les lyrics me semblent complètement basiques et bien loin de toute inspiration, cette fois-ci j'en suis sûr! Même la façon de chanter sonne complétement bidon... Merde, c'est toujours chiant de donner un avis négatif sur un skeud mais bon, je ne peux pas non plus dire que ça ne sent pas le déjà entendu mille fois.

Les bonnes idées sur ce disque se comptent sur le doigt d'une main. Malheureusement c'est très maigre au final. "Paraphernalia", la dernière, sera la meilleure de l'album, bien que sans la moindre inspiration, le rythme basique réussit à me faire relever la tête, mon état catatonique vient de se terminer avec i'écoute de l'album. A retenir: la prod' excellente. Thrash metal plus que basique, snas aucune envergure ni inspiration, les clichés les plus poussifs sont dans cet album. Hélas, triple hélas.

Ze komen uit Portugal en ze spelen thrash, deze drie heren. Het ziet er uit als het nieuwe album van het Franse No Return, maar daar heeft het niets mee te maken. Machinergy maakt thrashmetal met een deathrash-galvanisering en is geenszins progressief, niet een klein beetje. Dit is het tweede album van de bruingebrande metalheads.

Op zich is er niets mis mee met deze polkaloze headbangthrash. Alleen ja, er is ook niets wat echt in het oog springt. Veel van hetzelfde, heel veel van hetzelfde. Strakke (ultralight industrial productie) en voorspelbare stuwende thrash zonder dynamiek. Inspiratieloos eigenlijk. Neen, tegenwoordig heb je als thrashliefhebber meer nodig om opgewonden te raken.

Score: 59/100

Sounds Evolution is Machinergy's second full-length, and the Portuguese three-piece have produced one hell of thrashy beast!

Singer (and guitarist) Rui Vieira has a vocal style that seems to mix the stles of early Fear Factory with mid-era Prong, producing an aggressive but forlorn sound that complements the industrial feel extremely well. The guitar work is very technically accomplished without being too technical, leading to fast and brutal songs that have great hooks.

The industrial elements are limited to samples and intros (such as in the excellent track Venomith) and imagery rather than musical content, leaving the album as a rather stripped-back thrash affair. There is the occasional melodic death element, and I can hear some Metallica and even Machine Head influences! The riffing is therefore varied enough to keep the listener's interest throughout.

Carne & Mal has some great riffs and a neat retro groove section, Cado Falso has some excellent lyrics that will speak to fans of Testament, and Waterwar (great title!) has a solo that definitely needs to be witnessed to be believed!

Machinergy have managed to pack a lot of vintage thrash into a modern album, aided by the mixing which is slightly bass-light, and an excellent drum recording. If I had one criticism, it is that the vocals lack body. There are times where they could have been brought to the front of the mix more, giving them the room they deserve, powerful as they are.

Portugal is not known as a place to find great thrash, but give Machinergy a chance and you may just find your new favourite band.

Portugal's Machinergy play a beefy, melodic Thrash with near-Death growls on their second full-length, Sounds Evolution. Think late 80s stuff like Sepultura and Pantera before all the core, groove and breakdown shit started creeping in. Most of the songs on Sounds Evolution are straightforward and fairly generic though the vaguely Moorish female vocals in "Waterwar" and Gypsy dance music at the beginning of "Paraphernalia" are nice touches. But even those songs don't make much use of their opportunity to set themselves apart and go straight into well-worn Thrash riffs rather quickly.

Machinergy aren't bad and play with some energy and conviction. They even tried to give Sounds Evolution some individuality, but came up short. It isn't the worst thing you'll ever hear, not by a long shot, but it isn't anything you'll need to seek out, either. Maybe Machinergy will do a little more with those non-metal influences on their next release and then, who knows, maybe they'll be on to something.

Rating: 3/5

Machinergy are a Portuguese thrash metal band formed in 2006.

This album is a blistering barrage of shredding, thrash metal shrieks, and fast paced drumming. This album is a treat for any extreme metal fan.

The album starts off with "Sounds Evolution", showcasing what makes Machinergy so excellent. Filled with great fast paced guitar riffs and pounding drumming, this track shows you exactly what your in for the rest of the album.

This album is a must have for any extreme metal fans. The riffs are great, the pace uncompromising, and the slightest hints of melody help this album reach the top of my listening list.

Machinergy are a band from Portugal that plays a very old school form of thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 album "Sounds Evolution".

Dark electronic sounds start off the album before going into more of a heavy and melodic musical direction which leads up to a very fast old school thrash metal direction along with some aggressive vocals that have a death metal tinge to them and the band also brings in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.

The music on this recording goes back to the most extreme style of thrash that was around in the mid 80's and you can hear a lot of the elements early death metal took from thrash in this bands musical style but the music is more modern and halfway through the album the electronic sound s make their return at times along with some spoken word samples as well as a small amount of melodic female vocals while the main focus remains on a very heavy and aggressive thrash metal sound that avoids any use of solos or leads and a couple of the later track brings in a brief use of ethnic Middle Eastern music sounds.

Machinery plays a very aggressive and brutal form of old school thrash metal that shows how heavy this genre can get without having to turn death metal and there is also a good amount of melody being displayed on some of these tracks, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover violent and hateful themes.

In my opinion Machinergy are a very great sounding brutal old school thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sounds Evolution" "Venomith" "Cado Falso" and "Hammer". 8 out of 10.

Very well, it seems like my first impression was totally wrong hahaa.. Ok, actually I was thinking that Machinergy might be another bunch of modern TM with lots of fast and technical riffs. Anyway I was definitely wrong as their creations really awesome. A mixture of Teutonic and Bay Area Thrash plus a lil bit of Sepultura flavour especially the vocal parts. Hah, really impressive stuff from this Portuguese trio. Quite amazing as their music very much powerful like being played by the complete band members whereas they have only 3. Well Machinergy actually not that new in the scene as they have active since 2006 yet didnt unleashed any stuffs until 2010. So till now not much opus being out except 2 debut, an EP and a split album. Sounds Evolution is their second album and I think they have make lots of improvement since their debut. Ok, we have about 10 trax in this album which few of them was written in their mother language and being mixed in between the English lyrics. Most of the lyrics seems talk about death, war and a lil bit political views. Hmm.. quite interesting features in the trax of Waterwar which being beautified by the luvly operatic female voice plus a lil traditional musical sounds. Hah, very nice compositions. Overall I would say the guitarworks play a very big role in this album as it was managed to deliver a very heavy, harsh yet catchy riffing. So as to the drumworks and the vocals parts which really make this album completely outstanding. Hah, I've got no other words to describe this precious gems. Its absolutely recommended! Just move your ass and ask for it at facebook.com/machinergy or machinergy.com ~ Mr Ed Sangwitok
