Portuguese thrash power-trio Machinergy (a former Band of the Day) will release its second album, Sounds Evolution, in CD format this month via Portuguese Metal Soldiers Records and Greek Secret Port Records worldwide.
The follow-up to 2010’s Rhythmotion was digitally released in June 2nd this year and has garnered rave reviews:
“From the first to the final breathing, they attack relentlessly with a tracklist overall vigorous and brutal, keeping the standards high-leveled with no relevant ups and downs between songs” – Rock & Heavy [Chile]
“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” – The Moshville Times [UK]
“They will no doubt blow your speakers” – Metal Galaxy [Canada]
“This is one bad-ass album” – Woodbangers [USA]
Machinergy are now focused on completing their forthcoming videoclip “Fúria”. Vocalist/guitarist Rui Vieira comments: “Our first videoclip for Rhythmotion was a good start. We tried to create a short story and we had a great actor. In “Fúria”, we will try to
take our cinephile experience to another level. It will be a bit more ambitious video.”
In other news, Machinergy won in August the best short film category with 2012’s documentary Rhythm Between Sounds in their hometown Arruda dos Vinhos’ film festival “Curt’Arruda”. The film chronicles the band’s roots and the Portuguese underground music scene since the late 80’s, and you can watch it on YouTube now. Furthermore, Machinergy will feature Portuguese in radio legend António Sérgio documentary Uivo with the track “1988”, in theatres on November 1st.
