A guy on a Sonic fangames forum had posted a screenshot of his playlist (can't remember why) and I saw that the album title was called 'Overworld' and was like "that sounds videogamey".

The rest was history.

Funny story, I was playing Trackmania, the free version... dunno if anyone knows it... and was on some kind of custom-level online thing... it switched between new custom tracks (racing tracks i mean) every 5 minutes... anyway, it seems whoever created the custom track could choose what music track would play along to it, and sure enough there was a MaSu track playing.

I don't for the life of me remember what track it was, I know it was simply instrumental, with no lyrics, and I know that after hearing it a couple of times I thought it was absolutely ingenious, combining C64 music with balls-out heavy rock, and fell in love immediately. After asking online in the in-game chat, I found the name of the authors... and have been totally hooked ever since.

Really have no idea what that first track was that got me so hooked though, even though I own all albums and have listened to them immeasurable times!

I happen to have a thing for cover songs, so I was sifting through YT looking for some tracks. Stumbled upon Machinae Supremacy - Gimme More

The rest...as they say, is history.

Discovered them through the Yogscast, specifically their holiday livestream playthrough of the Minecraft "Wrath of the Fallen" adventure map.

During a fight sequence, their audio manager Sparkles* (also the frontman of Area 11, another great band) put on the webography version of "Attack Music" in the background and mentioned the band. I looked them up, downloaded everything off of their website, listened to it all in one sitting on Christmas Eve, and promptly bought the rest of their discography as soon as I possibly could.

It's a fun thing that most people seem have found the band through some gaming related channel. Up there among the oldoldold post in this thread is me saying something about finding a reference to MaSu on GameSpy when that was still a place people visited.

Yeah I'm not sure if I've posted here or not, but I found the band after hearing Player One and assorted instrumental site releases at a friend's place. He was using them for background music during a science fiction RPG we were playing.

I heard the track Loot. Burn. Rape. Kill. Repeat. once in a user video on gametrailers. So yeah, another example of how MaSu is discovered through gaming channels.

Not really surprising is it?

I actually heard Through The Looking Glass on Swedish radio in 2007-something.

As soon as I heard the announcer say the name of the band I rushed to the computer and looked them up. Been my favorite band since then.


Btw, does anyone even ever listen to radio nowadays? I feel old...  :(

Very rarely, I'm afraid. One can only listen to the top 50 hits so many times before they snap.

I like some radio, on occasion. For instance when commuting, when doing long travels in car it's nice to have some variation (talking, music, silly commercials). And when having lunch/dinner break at my part-time job it's nice to have some background radio as well.

Sometimes at home when I can't decide which CD to listen to (the more I have, the harder it gets?) I turn on the radio. But that happens hardly ever.

Some guy wrote a post about MaSu on the swedish nintendo forum back in 03 I think. I didn't have broadband back then so I had to download a song at a friends house the next day, unfortunately I couldn't remember the name of the band and it took me forever to find the post with the link. Luckily I found it  ;D

Believing in a zombieman from outer space who is his own father is pretty funny, but that's not what MaSu is about //yas
