Will you guys be changing the guitar tone for every new album from here on in? to sort of keep it fresh?

That depends on the songs.
We use a sound that fits, that's all.

will the album contain many contrasting sound genres?

Like...looking back you have alot of calm stuff, heavy stuff, ambient stuff, orchestra stuff, mixer stuff, themed stuff, etc.

I guess the answer to that question will haf to wait until you hear the labum. imo it's all machinae, but I guess it's possible to read some stereotypical genres and stuff into the songs if you care about such things.

Then let me ask it like this.

"Will the album have a lot of variation?"

yes it was, and if I remember correctly, the place also was the same (Studio Fredman)

edit*
- and so I stand corrected, again -

But in comparison "mastered in a way similar to RE..." the essentials between the ue and re versions of the last album remain; everything is a bit louder/compressed/limited/enhanced/less dynamic.

Were it possible to kill, it would already be dead.

Ok, here goes with my question for the band...

Have you guys ever thought about having tracks as DLC for games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band? As that would seriously rock my world (and my plastic guitar/drum kit (when the game comes out in the UK))

Also, while I think about it, whatever happened to the 'I listened to Machinae Supremacy when they were still underground' tee? I didn't get a chance to order one before and now it's not in the shop :-(

The album was mixed in the same studio as last time, but mastered in a different one. This time, it was mixed in Studio Fredman and mastered in a studio called Tailor Maid.

As for the merch and stuff... It seems our latest batch of tees weren't very popular so maybe we did something wrong. We overestimated the people who would want a "sid"-related t-shirt, cause it seems there aren't that many after all. So we'll go for something more accessible in the future, like the "ELITE" tee which was very popular. Who knows, maybe we'll bring it back to life. ;)

Stuff that's in the shop WILL go away. If you are planning on getting something, and don't get it ... We don't know that. :) From our perspective, it would seem not a lot of people are interested, regardless how many are _planning_ to buy it.

So with time, less popular items will disappear and we'll try to bring in new stuff and see how it is received. Sorry if anyone missed a chance with something, but we can't have a big selection. We can't keep all prints and just expand, we don't have time, room or the money for such an operation. We need to keep it small to be able to do it.


It's my job to keep SID elite.

Oh, and we would love to make content for Guitar Hero or Rockband. If any of the publishers who hold the rights / licenses or whatever you need to do it would let us, we'd be there in a flash.
