Band Watch: MACHINEFIEND
Mixing equal parts SPARTA, Kid A-era RADIOHEAD, and The Fragile-era NINE INCH NAILS, with a hint of early 30 SECONDS TO MARS (i.e. when they were dark – and good), Toronto’s MACHINEFIEND is a progressive electronic treat for the ears.
The brain-child of electronic producer Max “Skull” Scholey, MACHINEFIEND came into existence after the release of their debut two-song digital 7″ 1248 back in January 2010 – a project that professed to be “the dream sequence of a tortured computer”.
Since then, the industrial-tinged act has put together a slick live show leading up to the release of their August 2011 debut self-produced LP release Sick In Space, which was mastered by Boris Segal at ALTOSYNC Labs

But you can be sure that we’re going to berate you over the head with it in the coming months… that’s a promise… and a good thing, I swear.
