The Machine is a power trio from the Rotterdam area (NL). Their music characterizes itself as powerful with a lot of dynamics: ranging from hard-hitting rock to spaced out jams with a more experimental approach. Their very own sound is a compromise between organic and groovy drumming, inventive low end pounding and a punishing wall of guitar with some old school lead work.
Since forming in 2007, The Machine released several albums and played at some amazing occasions – among them are the fantastic Roadburn Festival (2010 & 2011), Burg Herzberg Festival (2011), DunaJam Festival (2012) and numerous club shows throughout Europe. They’re currently signed to Elektrohasch Records.
Go out and see The Machine live: the shows are loud and heavy, while the band tends to include some improvisational parts in their set.
“The Machine pair molten stoner rock riffs with a fair dose of retro psych for good measure. The band also excels at incorporating acid-blues jamming that lifts their performance into outer space.” Roadburn Festival
