Heard on the Imperiumi board:

The next issue of Soundi magazine (one of the largest music magazines in Finland) is going to have an interview with Machinae Supremacy.

MACHINAE SUPREMACY INTERVIEW (IN FINNISH)

Added to the site earlier today! Might be translated into English soon but I can't promise anything, since we don't have any translators yet. Hope some people from Finland find this interview nice one to read through.
Most excellent interview, indeed! Very interesting to read... It was nice to see how relaxed and easy going atmosphere related through it. I like it lot, hopefully this long but interesting interview will be translated!
Random ramblings and furious feminine novels per versatility.

Radio Yle-X just played Seventeen because I requested it. They told they also interviewed Gordon and the interview will air in few weeks time.

I don't know if this counts for much, but on the college radio show I co-host we've mentioned Machinae Supremacy a few times because of the ties the music has to videogames, which our show is about.  Also, KyleJCrb gave us webhosting, which we are quite thankful for.  Hi Kyle!

I want to use some MaSu songs as bumper music or something but I need to ask permission first :)

If we weren't on another continent I'd ask to see if we could get a quick interview with some of the band members.  That would rule.

The final summary paragraph of the article posted by rob:

----
Redeemer offers, in places, delightfully energetic melody surges straight from the heart and the retroish, unique SID-sounds perfectly support them. If only the moments of averageness would be absent and the vocals easier on the ears, this could well be the perfect metal album. Nearest to perfection is the most diverse song of the album, Oki Kumas Adventure, which shows what Machinae Supremacy can do when given free reins.
----

In general, the reviewer gives pros for MaSu on the SID-sounds and hopes for more of them in the future, giving Nightwish as a example where the uniqueness (symphony orchestra in this case) is "bravely put to the fore". MaSu's riffs are also given praise. He gives critique for robert's vocals ("At their best, the signer Robert Stjärnström's vocals sound great, but for the most part the creaky vocals make you grind your teeth") and uneven tracks.

(Just to make sure, personally I think Robert's vocals just take some time to get used to, and as the reviewer later concedes, the non-traditional vocals fit MaSu's non-traditional music).
