Metal Blade signs Machinemade God
Official press release: Metal Blade Records announce the signing of German metal act Machinemade God. Machinemade God is a five-piece hailing from the Rhine/Ruhr-area in Germany. Formed in early 2003, Machinemade God have been able to showcase their energetic stage performance supporting numerous renowned national and international acts from both the Metal and HC genres (e.g. God Forbid, Caliban, Heaven Shall Burn, As I Lay Dying, etc.). After releasing just one demo, Machinemade God went to Denmark to record their much anticipated debut album titled The Infinity Complex in April/May 2005. For producer they chose no one less than Jacob Bredahl of Hatesphere, knowing he was the right person to achieve the uncompromising sound they were aiming for. His mixing expertise, combined with the mastering skills of Ziggy at ZigZound Studios, made this effort one hell of a brutal metal record. Comments from the band about their signing with Metal Blade Records: "It's hard to put into words what we're feeling and thinking right now. This deal is of a calibre that you don't just acknowledge and move on with your life. In fact, it has swept us pretty much off of our feet. One thing is for sure, we are very excited about working with these guys because they have welcomed us with open arms and have made us feel extremely comfortable right from the start. We are honoured being from now on considered a part of the Metal Blade family. In return, we believe that Metal Blade is the right partner on our side to evolve as a band and give us the support and possibilities that we're looking for from a label. Once again, we're very excited about the future and are glad that we have found a home!" Machinemade God is: Flo Velten – vocals Holger Kiparski – guitar Sky Hoff – guitar Sven Luppus- bass Max Kotzmann - drums Machinemade God's debut album The Infinity Complex will be released by Metal Blade Records in March of 2006. Listen to the new song "Bleeding From Within" (not the final version), which will be available for a short time here.
