Get Machinae in Minecraft!

@notch so, what does Machinae Supremacy have to do to be a part of Minecraft? :)
So, Rob has expressed his interest for making some music for Minecraft. I think this would be a fantastic platform for PR for the band if this happened.

I just sent this email to Notch (Markus Persson), the creator of Minecraft. I think if we all send emails along these lines they have more chance of being noticed. I'm not saying spam this exact email to him, writing your own version might be an idea - but considering the size and publicity of Minecraft at the moment, if Machinae Supremacy got their music on it, Notch would no doubt advertise the band a little and bring in a LOT more publicity!

Hey Markus,
 
Machinae Supremacy would love to make some music for Minecraft or any upcoming projects you may be developing. They are a Swedish game-metal band that includes influences from many 8bit retro games, namely the Commodore 64 – they utilise not only the Sound Interface Device chip from the C64, but also NES Chiptune sounds and synth in a kind of pop-punk-metal mix of awesomeness
 
They created a game music company by the name of Hubnester Industries in 2006 or so, but due to concentrating on the band the company didn’t get as much business as they had liked and had to close down. Much of their music is available for free download on their website, including the soundtracks they have provided for the popular side-scrolling space shooter, Jets’N’Guns.
 
You can contact Robert Stjarnstrom (the vocalist) at the following places:

robert@machinaesupremacy.com
or contact@machinaesupremacy.com
 
A LOT of their music is available to download on their website: http://machinaesupremacy.com/music/
 
Please consider this offer, it would be a perfect mix of Swedish talent and 8bit awesomeness.
 
Thanks,
 
Shaun Sutton,
Community Representative of Machinae Supremacy.

Great idea!

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

Perhaps you should have added MaSu does have a record label. I think this shows that MaSu is not just some obscure underground band who release their music on the internet (because they can't get a label or w/e)... because they actually are quite professional and doing good on Spinefarm (major label!).

Maybe you could type up an email to him yourself mentioning this fact? :)

Dunno rly. While this would be awesome PR-wise, I don't know how MaSu is really fitting to Minecraft.
I mean, minecraft is all about smooth chill and ambient stuff, and well, that isn't MaSu.

But then again, "MaSu doesn't do ambient, but if they did, it'll probably be the best ambient in the world."

It could be an interesting opportunity for the band and fans alike to get a broader view of the guys and what they're capable of.

You've heard the Hubnester tracks, right? Machinae aren't just good at awesome metal stuff. Rob has composed some awesome slow ambient tracks too.

Besides, who says you can't have an awesome metal track for when you're fighting?

I second Fallout with Hubnester. You have another example in Action Girl's intro. :)

And the SiD and NES tunes will match Minecraft's 8-bittyness perfectly :D

And if the music won't be in-game, it's perfectly suited to be used trailers.
