Machinae Supremacy (SWE)
Machinae Supremacy is an alternative metal band from Sweden, whose video game-inspired sounds and melodies, masterful guitar work and unique vocals have set them apart from mainstream rock and metal since their beginning in 2000. Metal Hammer calls Machinae Supremacy “one of the most interesting bands of the current era” in their review of the album The Beat of Our Decay.
Machinae Supremacy has performed Final Fantasy songs with the Royal Philharmonics in Stockholm, been featured in the official Hockey World Series TV commercial in Sweden, toured with Children of Bodom, Ensiferum and Amon Amarth, and produced the original soundtrack to the video game Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams together with video music legends Chris Hülsbeck and Fabian Del Priore.
Machinae Supremacy’s webography, a free archive of music on their website, has had over 10 million downloads and counting.
“Describing the sound of Machinae Supremacy to someone who isn’t familiar with their genre or their base of video game culture would be like describing what salt tastes like if they have never tasted salt before. Once you hear it, though, you can define it forever and you never forget it.”
