This Broken Machine

This Broken Machine born from chaos in 2007.

Their inner conflicts and anxieties give birth to a genuine personal style, made of syncopated and powerful rhythms, dissonant and massive guitars, screamed and melodic voices, dark and oppressing atmospheres that melt into articulated tracks, building a coherent and homogeneous concept at the very same time.

The tracks as a whole are thought as buildings, where the sum of simple yet different elements contributes to a complex plot, where every single part is necessary for the others.

Their first full length, The Inhuman Use of Human Beings (2012) is the natural result of this kind of approach: completely self produced in every detail, the album portrays feelings of alienation and distress caused by work or the lack of it. Working is not only a mean of support, but also a way of personal realization and for this reason unemployment and temporary employment represent a crucial existential uneasyness, which could results into nihilism and self destruction.

The Inhuman Use of Human Beings covers these themes using the allegory of the man/machine relationship: the individual is seen as a gear of a global mechanism that, just like a shiny and pitiless god, allows survivalism only through the privation of human conscience and total obedience to the system.

The 13 tracks unveil a kind of harsh and tormented music, rough-edged and dark, with sporadic liquefied and thinner openings, covering angst, rage and frustration, but also hope and the will of redemption of men from their condition of suffering.
