Bands you think are equal to/greater than Machinae Supremacy
« on: April 06, 2011, 12:35:30 am »
Yeah, that's a bit of an odd subject to discuss on the Machinae Supremacy forum...

But here I was thinking. We are all on this forum because we think Machinae Supremacy is a great, fascinating and mindblowing band. Their music provides us with instant eargasm. I completely agree! But there also are some other bands I truly and utterly love.

For instance, Type O Negative. Especially these songs:



So I would like to hear of you, what orther bands or artists are you really crazy about? If you love MaSu and love something else equally, it must be very special!

Yeah, it's like choosing which kid of yours you love the most.

MaSu's Redeemer RE is the one of the two original CD's I do own right now and I'm in process of saving money for the rest of the records. The other CD is Limp Bizkit's Chocolate Starfish and the Hot-dog Flavored Water, but only because it was priced around 5$ and I was in a desperate need for a CD for my car stereo. Which sucks by the way.

But that's no way to compare. MaSu stays in my heart not only because of the awesome music, but also for the equally awesome community, of which I try to be an active part. Visiting this forums nearly every day makes me think about Machinae more often than about any other band. So MaSu is the unquestionable leader of my TOP 1 FAVORITE BANDS EVER since 2007 and hopefully it'll stay there for a long time.

This is going to be one short list  ;D

The only ones I can think of whos even close to touching masu is Pendulum and Eminem, their oldschool stuff. But thats just what sets masu apart from them, EVERY DAMN SONG masu has made is awesome, while the ones i mentioned have some great and some not so great releases

I think I can only do 'Almost As'. MaSu I've listened to more of and purchased stuff from to a greater degree than any other band. And beat down panic and anxiety attacks to go and see them live.

So, for my almost as's:

Yoko Kanno (A composer, not a band, but just listen to the soundtracks of Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, to name but two of the shows she's worked on.)
The Kinks (Classic band, with some truly great songs amongst their catalogue. Much prefer them to that other popular beat combo.)
Adam and the Ants (Showmanship and musical talent in one delicious New Wave package.

I listen to vast amounts of awesome music with quite wide range. However, I can't think of any music that have ever had as much influence on me as MaSu. I can't even think of anything "almost as"... This is the only band I buy CDs from and the only one I have listened for such a long time without getting bored - not to mention the fact that I've never joined any other music-connected community before.

... But let's hope this thread won't simply evolve into a long series of "nothing compares to MaSu" :D

The only band with a standing comparable to MaSu's to me is Sacred Steel, a true metal (yes, that's a genre) band from Germany. They were the first metal band I really got into. I've only seen them at three gigs (since they almost never come to Sweden to play), one of which I arranged myself. Sample songs are here: http://www.youtube.com/artist?a=GxdCwVVULXe4uSGdVKmNgH_GzJWJN_Ja

The only band I think is close to MaSu is Synthphonia Suprema.

Because I won't compare MaSu to a pagan folk band (that I listen to most) or band of other genres that are not even alike.

Hmm. Latest Turisas release is, imo, 90% as good as MaSu stuff. I used to consider Freedom Call as my favorite, but not after their latest two albums...
The one band I consider as good as MaSu is The Mass Missile, a japanese rock band (so most likely nobody here ever heard of it), mostly due to the vocals, heavy use of keyboard sounds and the Harmonica.
And there is recently discovered I Am Kloot (alternative/indie rock apparently) which I also consider as good, with some pieces (Avenue of Hope, Proof, Your Favourite Sky) being in my highest regard :).

Out of everything I listen to (and it is a lot) I span across multiple genres. But to me this is an easy answer. NONE.  ;D There has never been another band that encompasses every thing I like about music. Lyrics, style, originality, and quality. Machinae Supremacy has always held the number 1 spot. I can listen to them any day/night, in any situation I'm in, and or any mood I'm in. I can't say there are any other bands that would come close to them in my opinion.  8)

Well, I listen to a lot of different stuff. If you asked me to list my 2 favourite bands/artists, I'd probably say MaSu and Tom Waits. That doesn't mean I'll always feel like listening to one of those, depends entirely on the situation and my mood. MaSu is the band I've bought the most CDs of, though I've probably spent more money on Iron Maiden, those concert tickets are pretty damn expensive :P

I'll second Yoko Kanno as well.

Quoted For - fucking- Truth.

EDIT: Saying that, there isn't a Foo Fighters song I don't like, and I like most of what Sigur Ros have to offer, but they are a completely different genre of music.

I had hoped to find some music I could like too, because people think they're just as great as MaSu. Haven't had succes yet. :p

I definetly can't listen to MaSu in every mood, as I always try to find music that fits the way I feel. And even the weather contributes to that...

In the summer, I listen a lot to Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age, AC/DC and Monster Magnet, it's absoluetly AWESOME then! And in winter I listen more to Katatonia, Shining, Cobalt and Nine Inch Nails. That music really seems to fit with the time of year.

For me, Nine Inch Nails, Type O Negative and Machinae Supremacy are my favorite bands. Perhaps they can be inspiration to others as well.

Ya. But none of it is as wonderful as MaSu.

The only other bands who come anywhere near their epicness for me are In Flames, Muse, Iron Maiden, Nightwish.

A couple songs from Papa Roach, Pendulum, Celldweller, Mnemic, Motorhead, Stratovarius... reach the level of fun of MaSu...
But MaSu are the only band who have not ever written even ONE boring song =).

Edit : Korn, Eluveitie :P
