Machinemade God: The Infinity Complex

Sound — 8
From the area of Germany known for producing the most brutal and frantic modern metalcore acts comes Machinemade God's debut the infinity complex they are signed to Metal Blade Records. Their sound is nothing new nor genre defining but it is still a good metalcore album full of heavy guitars some good bass, druming and screams, there are also a few nice instrumentals to break up the havoc. There is also a guest appearance by Hatesphere singer Jacob Bredahl.

Lyrics — 7
These lyrics could have been written better and some of the titles have stupid names like Friendster Is Soo Two Months Ago but they are still enjoyable. They do go very well with the music and the singer shows a lot of talent in his thoat wrenching screams there is no clean singing on this album apart from a few spoken parts.

Overall Impression — 8
This album may appear to be just another metalcore album but really it is alot more than that. The instrumantals give it a nice touch and show some skill to their guitarists it is for those who want total hardcore aggression combined with crushing mosh parts, catchy hooks and severe melodies. It compares to such bands like Trivium, If Hope Dies, and Remembering Never. The best songs on here are Losses To Lessons, Bleeding From Within and Angel Wings. If the album was lost or stolen I would probably by it again.

    A superb album that doesn't deserve to be likened to friggin' Trivium. Really. A great purchase, along with Masked.
