Machines Of Indeterminate Origin are a band from Australia that has been featured before in this zine and plays an experimental form of sludge metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 album "2.0-A New Body Of Work" which will be released in March.
Spoken word parts start off the album along with a sci fi atmosphere and after awhile drones are added onto the recording and after awhile the music goes into a heavier direction where you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording along with a great amount of industrial elements.
A lot of sludge metal elements can be heard in the slower sections of the music and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very distorted and melodic fashion while t he vocals are mostly aggressive screams while also having their melodic moments and the music also gets very experimental and avant garde at times while some tracks also add in touches of noise rock and as the album progresses acoustic guitars along with tribal style percussion's can be heard in certain sections of the recording and stringed instruments are also utilized towards the end.
On this recording Machines Of Indeterminate Origin takes sludge metal, stoner, noise rock and experimental and mixes them together to create something very original, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Machines Of Indeterminate Origin and if you are a fan of experimental and sludge metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Your Faith Is Inspiring" "Foul Moon" and "Exaggerated Sense Of Our Own Importance". 8 out of 10.
