Title: How did YOU find Machinae Supremacy?
Post by: Lysander on March 02, 2006, 07:51:53 pm
I DID look for simalar topics but didn't find any. If there is one simply point it out and ill obliterate this post! kthx.

After realising how many MaSu fans are really out there, it got me wondering..How did you find the band in the first place?

I found them by complete chance. I clicked the "Random LJ" button on Livejournal.com one time, and the journal that came up was of someone with a huuuuuuge post about Machinae Supremacy. They were saying how awesome they were and that they were going to buy DXM as soon as they could. I thought I'd google the name and see what appeared. Found the site and listened to ghost. I guess the rest is history..:P

What about you?

Both of my brother's had Machinae songs playing in the background. Hearing both Attack Music and Winterstorm simultaneously, how could I not fall in love with the music?

I was VGMixing, and I saw somewhere a link to one of the sidologies (Sidology 3, if I remember).

I downloaded it, listened to it, googled "machinae supremacy", found the site, downloaded everything.  ;D

Next day, I came back, and noticed that even though I was pretty sure I just downloaded everything, I was missing two songs. Ghost and loot burn rape kill repeat. They've been released the day I discovered MaSu.  ;D

I was, like every single day, reading the SomethingAwufl frontpage, where the writer went, in a video game review, something like "not all 8-bit era video game music suck, it even inpired a very talented rock band" with a link to Machinae Supremacy's webbie. Early 2003 if I recall correctly.

I listened to some c64 remix radio and my jaw dropped as I heard Gianna Sisters among the usual crappy techno stuff... 8)

That was sometime early 2005.. shortly after me and my gf split up, so Gianna Sisters and the sidologies quite helped me through some sad times  ;D

took me a half a year to come back and download more songs...

For a long while, Giana and Sidologies 1 & 3 were in and out of the five top-ranked songs on Nectarine (http://scenemusic.net/) (looks like Giana's still hanging on at #9).  Sometime in late 2004, I gave them a listen and liked them so much that I went looking for other promo tracks.

The one you know as Megadokyo showed my friend Dan a few of the tracks and then they did the rounds of all our friends. The big track that everyone loved was Sidstyler and some of us wound up getting into Machinae in a big way!

2004, was wandering thru the Mega Driver site (brazilian band that plays some videogame tunes in heavy metal versions. http://www.megadriver.com.br/site.html), and I read something about the Gianna Sisters cover on www.machinaesupremacy.com (I've never played this game, though... i've never played any C64 game o.o ). There was this song "Soundtrack to the rebellion". "Wow, good title, might be a good song!". When I heard "In this place, we find each other", I began downloading the other songs, and voilá, Machinae Supremacy fan xD

I made a post in Powerman 5000's forums asking if anyone had alternatives to Powerman 5000 - i.e. rock with spacey high-pitch noises. Among many other suggestions one was Machinae Supremacy and they suggested listening to Great Gianna Sisters first. I went to the site, downloaded this one song, and loved it. I had to get Spunky to give me a disc full of all the songs, though, because back in those days I only had a 56k (and only after 6pm, lol).

I found em by chance a few years back when they posted up gianna sisters and the sidologies on the RKO website (remix.kwed.org), i'm well into the old c64 music and was on downloading a heap of remixes... Ever since ive been doing no doubt what u lot have all been doing, that is downloding every possible MaSu song i can get my hands on...

Reedemer seems soooo close but soooo far away... Cant wait!   ;D

I first heard Machinae while listening to PlanetSide Radio, which played kick-ass music (and got me into Rhapsody and metal in general), I really didn't look into them. My friend decided to check out the bands and tried to show me Machinae by having me listen to Winterstorm and Masquarde. I didn't care much for them at first, and didn't care enough to download any songs. (MISTAKE!) A few months later, I random remembered Machinae (Somehow while listening to Rhapsody..), and decided to give 'em another shot. Went to the site, downloaded "Hero", listened, joined the forums a month or so later. And then stuff happened, and then I posted in this thread. And now, I can't find a Machinae song I don't like. :D

I think this is the most unique (is it posible to be most unique?) one here. Not through, remix, game, metal band sites, but through Mel C. Winner.

Summer of 2003, article on Slashdot about either Ogg or RIAA which digressed into many rants. Hidden among them was a post about bands that gave music away on the internet, linking to マス. Had it playing almost all the time in the background when playing Star Wars Galaxies, causing my friends to also listen to them, as well as my brother.  A friend remembered those days and how Machinae Supremacy also played there part, and he recently IMed me telling me how much they kick ass.  When I talked on the phone with my brother recently, he said that he was going to visit Sweden for work reasons, and said, saddly, that the band would be 13ish hours away by car so seeing them or trying to buy a CD of Redeemer(REDEEMER?) in person was a little out of the question.  Also, he said that he would regretably not be able to attend Hultsfred(in the event that the band did make an appearence) because he would not have time/money to divert, even though he would be in Europe visiting friends.

My brother showed me a World of Warcraft movie featuring bouff. We thought it was a great track but didn't know where it came from. Quite som time later I stumbled upon this website and started downloading stuff and bought DXM shortly thereafter when it came out. It bugs me I can't figure out what referred me to the website. Could have been the Ogg Vorbis site as I was programming an audio engine for a game at the time.

may 2002 i bought a Czech PC mag named "Computer" (what an original name), [8/02], and first what i did was taht i checked the "games" section of the included CD.. found there Demo of a game named "Jets`n`Guns", played the game and loved the music! (It was the first time i liked metal! - i didnt like metal before because my brother was listening to it all the time at full-volume.. mostly death metal..) about a 15 month after (yeah, a long time, but i was 11yo then and was not a self-thinking creature yet ^_^, i was almost as stupid as now is my 11yo brother) i played the mp3s in winamp and saw the artist is Machinae Supremacy ("what an interesting name", i thought, because i didnt know what does it mean..). We had a 56kbps dial-up internet here so i searched seznam.cz (a czech internet search website) for "Machinae Supremacy"..got a Czech site describing Machinae Supremacy as "awesome c64 SID Metal band" there was a link to www.machinaesupremacy.com, so i entered the site* and i was surprised that there are so many songs for free download.. i downloaded about 1 MB of Sidology 1 and loved it very much, so i told one of my fellow students to download the mp3s for me.. (he also liked them) and since then Machinae Supremacy is my favourite band.. now i like other metal bands too, but Machinae Supremacy is the best, because it is the only band i liked ALL songs from... and it is very different from all the Metal bands i have heard.
Machinae Supremacy RULEZZZZZZ!!!!  8)

* - it was when the newest site news were this:
2003-10-30 - Jets'N'Guns 
The Czech game project Jets'N'Guns {http://www.rakeingrass.com/jng/jng1.htm} is back in development after a period of various misfortunes. Jets'N'Guns is an elite 2D-shooter game and Machinae Supremacy is making the music.

I had bought Jets'n'Guns and I was playing it like 24/7 when I realized that the music rocked. I checked out Machinae Supremacy's pages just to see what other music they made.

When I found out that the rest of their music rocked even more it quickly became my favourite band and I've been checking the site for updates almost daily ever since.

Well... one of my friends wrote a huuuuuuuuuuuge article about Machinae and said they were purely awesome. He gave the link to the site *and* to his favourite songs (read : all). So I randomly clicked on "Legion of Stoopid", "Hubnester Inferno", "Nemesis" and "Anthem Apocalyptica" and got dazed, and then I took everything I could with my 56k on the website. It was... mmmh... in may-june 2005, if I recall correctly. (Yay ! It's almost my birthday as a Machinae fan *-*)

Back when i was in a clan called 7samaurai, playing counter-strike, they made a flash making all of us south park characters and saying who we were and putting us in comical killing situations. And the background music was SIDStyler.. so i hunted and found you guys. Some claim i introduced MaSu to Belfast, but then there's nobby so i don't know.

Either way, its all good :)

a friend and I were bored and were typing random things into google or limewire to find interesting new bands... this was like 3 years ago so I hardly remember the exact circumstances that brought us to the site, but we stuck around because of the cool flash, and stayed for life because of the breathtaking music.

I honestly don't remember. I've been listening to Machinae for so long, I really don't remember ever finding them. :P

I know the song list was a whole hell of a lot shorter when I first started listening =P.

Wish I could remember discovering them though... If I can remember, I'll be sure to post though. :)

I've already half said in this thread, but time to be more clear:

Friend found a link on some random forum that linked back to the masu homepage. I wanted him to burn me a cd with random videos from http://www.sequentialpictures.com/, and when he did, he was just like "oh, and I put some mp3s on there to fill the space up."

I honestly thought "Okay, what KIND of mp3s?", but the first one I heard was Masquerade, and thought "Hey, these guys aren't bad." Then I heard Attack Music and Kings of the Scene.

I now have over 140 mp3s that are Masu, or Masu-related-fan-made.


Woot for Machinae!!

i still remember. it must have been in 2002 or 2003. i was in a friend's irc channel and we were talking about music, when he sent me Sidology Ep. 1. I listened to it and wrote something like "This is awesome, are all their songs instrumental". Then he sent me Winterstorm and the link to machinaeupremacy.com. I guess the rest of the story doesn't need to be written down.

To make a long story short, one day a few years ago, bani suddenly popped into the #etpro IRC channel and forced everybody to listen to MaSu.  Fast forward to present day, we now wait for the Redeemer pre-order site to appear.  :P

i was contemplating registering to reply to this thread, but this post forced me to do so...  i don't even hang out in #etpro anymore but that's also how i found the band: through banispam  ;D

i just got Redeemer today in the mail and FOR THE LOVE OF GOD IT IS SO AWESOME.  jklasdfhjklahsdfjkahsdjklfa, now i'm going to not write music for another 4 months because this cd just puts me to shame  :-\

oddly, if not for irc, as i keep an eye on mono211's site frequently and they released the Jets'N'Guns OST some time ago, i'd have found them anyway.

Ah, yes, now I remember! I visited one of my 'musical neighbours' through Last.fm, and he had MaSu on top with about 1700 plays, while his other most listened artists had about 3-400. I decided I should check it out, so I reckon I googled Machinae Supremacy, and ended up at the official site.

Now look at my Last.fm (http://www.last.fm/user/Volvagia/). :P
Title: Re: How did YOU find Machinae Supremacy?
Post by: H on April 12, 2006, 04:48:11 pm
What the heck. I'll bite.

Back some time between 2001 - 2003, someone had made a Stepmania simfile using the Machinae Supremacy cover song "The Great Giana Sisters".

I should mention that around this timeframe, I had not heard of either MaSu or Stepmania. I was barely getting into DDR. A friend of mine at the time pulled me aside & said "hey, check this out", & began to play various Stepmania files for me.

I was intrigued at the game, but was losing interest file after file. A lot of the ones he had shown me were of the same repetative nature.

I was just about to pack it up & call it a night...

...but then he chose a kick ass metal song from a band I had never heard of before. :o

As I watched him play this file, I was more interested in the music that was playing, as opposed to how insanely hard the steps were. He kept telling me that he liked the way the file was constructed, how well things were in sync, yadda yadda yadda. I wasn't paying attention anymore. I was staring at the background, trying so hard to memorize the web address before the screen went blank.

Alas, I couldn't see if the address ended in .com or .org  or  .somecompletelymadeupending.

So I went about my life, occasionally remembering such an awsome song, thinking "I HAVE to find that band's website...but who were they....and what the hell was the address again???"

About a year or 2 later, I had finally downloaded Stepmania for myelf. And I had asked a good friend of mine (other than the person I mentioned before) to send me some files to get started with :). She proceeded to burn pretty much her entire collection onto a data CD for me.

As I went through the list of songs, I was growing bored of the same repetaive "need-to-mash-the-keys-as-quickly-as-you-can" files that she had handed me. There were a few good songs around, but nothing that really stood out. I was just about to close out the program for good that day...

...until I press the arrow key on last time...and heard a familiar guitar riff that had been echoing in the recesses of my mind for a while.

"HOLY HELL! There is NO way I just ended up with this song!" @_@

My heart now pounding in excitement, I played the file, to make sure I wasn't dreaming.

It was legit. It was the same kickass song, the same kickass stepfile, the same kickass background that listed the web address.

...wait...

"HOLY CRAP! The web address!"

I quickly (and sloppily :P) type the web address shown before me into the address bar.

The page opens up for me on my slow-assed 56k...

...and the portal to the site pulls me in, never to let me see the light of the outside world until I have downloaded, browsed, registered, & soaked in as much as I could about "Machinae Supremacy".

I have been hooked ever since :)

...

Y'know, I could have just typed "I heard them by playing Stepmania!", but I figured the full explanation was more interesting/dramatic.  ;D

A friend sent me Gianna in IRC early 2002 and I was blown away. Then I went to their website via link in the file and downloaded Winterstorm and was blown away even more "Wow, they even add vocals to this". Then I went to see them live at Assembly 2002. I went there just because of Machinae.

Hmh, I gotta recall this a bit more, feels like it all happened a long time ago. [I also got into an accident last summer and I was concussed, so it seems like some memories have turned into vague flashbacks.]
Anyway, I think it was back in 2004, my friend got tired of my MP3-player full of those 8/16bit tunes and introduced me to MaSu. Like, "you should listen to some real music every once in a while". Altho' I can't remember if it was Player One or The Great Gianna Sisters which I heard first. But I remember it was an instant turnon, oh the nostalgy. I didn't even remember how much I used to play TGGS.

Then, website -> more songs -> getting hooked on -> fangirlness.

Well, it all started (as with so many other things) with Torp. He mentioned MaSu while we served in the Army together, and after that wouldn't stop nagging about it, until I finally agreed to try out Jets 'N Guns because of the soundtrack... needless to say I've been hooked since

It wasn't until a short while ago that I started to listen to something other than their instrumentals, though. And from that moment my winamp playlist has been entirely made up of MaSu-songs :)

I was sitting at this midsummer party at my girlfriend-at-the-time Pia's father's house, and me and Kahl were having some b33r and chilling.

This guy, named Jonne, was there, and we'd prior to that event received some guitar material from him via his friend Durra, and so we knew he posessed a elite madskills. We got into talking about forming a band, and... well... That's how I found Machinae Supremacy. :)

Well... one of my friends wrote a huuuuuuuuuuuge article about Machinae and said they were purely awesome. He gave the link to the site *and* to his favourite songs (read : all).

Just to say that I am the friend involved ^^

I descovered MaSu while I was downloading by p2p. Can't remember the name of the freeware I was using, but it allowed us to see the download folder of the other members. I was looking for something new to download, so I had a look, and the name of the band caught my eyes. I downloaded Great Gianna Sisters and Anthem Apocalyptica. I LOVED it. So I sought for the website, and downloaded all.

And now, how hard I try, I can't stop listening MaSu more than a month... -_-"""
Since those days, I keep on talking of MaSu everywhere I go (and converted at least 4 friends ^^).

I have to mention that to thanks me, Obsi-chan bought me Redeemer !!!! Thx, thx, thx, thx !!

(edit) hehe, I didn't bother sifting through 7 pages of replies just to tell my story, but now I see I discovered MaSu the same was as H, pretty much. :D

I downloaded Step Mania, a PC version of Dance Dance Revolution, a few years ago. Because it doesn't come with songs and you have to separately download them yourself, my friend gave me a copy of all the songs he had for Step Mania (some 400+ songs) and one of them, which would turn out to be one of my favorites, was The Great Gianna Sisters. It would be probably a full year before I really looked into the band that performed the song, though. I think I saw somebody online mention one of the Sidologies and when I recognized the name "Machinae Supremacy" I decided to Google the band, and I found their website, along with all the free song downloads.

The rest is history.

I found Machinae Supremacy initially because WOPN Radio (now known as Freematrix Radio - http://freematrix.us/radio/) played Hybrid a fair bit. Freematrix Radio is an online radio station that runs competly on open source software, and plays only free music.

They may have played other MS songs... I can't remember, but Hybrid grew on me, and eventually I wandered over to WOPN's artist page and followed the link to MS. After that, there was no going back. :) At the time I found it really cool that a band would give away their music for free, and that they supported the (then fairly new) free and open Ogg Vorbis format.

I'm not good with remembering time, but this was a fair while before there was any mention of an album being made. Since then I've been getting all of my friends here in Sydney, Australia addicted to it.

I've been lurking around these forums (and the old forums I guess), looking around every once in a while for a long time - it's only recently that I'm starting to actually post. ;)

i was browsing a newsforum that is also about computer news (www.heise.de (german)) in 2004 i think....or 2003. there was something about some upgrade for c-64 computers (1 gig ram or something as weird....for a c-64).
anyways in the comments, some guy said, that there was a band that plays c-64 game music with real instruments....since i played on my brother's c-64 since i was 4 years old i really liked the games and the music and i checked the band out.
it was "Press Play on Tape" and they play the music as rock songs, which (and you may excuse the poor writing) REALLY ROCK.
while checking out their homepage i came across the link section and .....who would have thought of that....ther ewas a link to Machinea Supremacy.

the rest is like with everyone else....D/Led all songs, and then MS became one of my, if not THE favorite band.

keep up the good work   8)

As you already might have read in the "My girlfriend is angry..." topic, it's Crazywater who showed MaSu to me.
Actually, when I got to know him he was waiting to get DXM and so told me all the time that the cd had to arrive soon...
So I got curious what music it was.

Well.. the first song I ever played on "In the Groove" was Bouff..... I was like: "What kind of Electronic Metal is this?"

The thing is.... I loved the song and then Hybrid and then Cryosleep........ Then I was on MySpace looking for bands and I thought to look them up... and... I didn't know they were real. Most of the artists in the dancing games are created....At least in the DDR ones.... but anyway....

There was a link to the site in the MySpace page and then I got into them.. I guess I'm a fan now. LOL

Hmm...

My friend Brendan sent me "Sidology Episode 3" on a whim of his after sending me Stratovarius' "Destiny".

I listened to it and then I knew I had to have more.  I scoured the internet for MaSu's music and had all the stuff from the website and thoroughly enjoyed that.  I was addicted, but never did I once venture into the forum or contact the band.  It was a secret. >_>

And then Deus Ex Machinae came out and I had it within two days of its release and that further fed my addiction.

I don't think I've ever been so rabid about a band, aside from maybe Nightwish or Strapping Young Lad.

MaSu owns me. ;_;

last year, i went to a new school, and a classmate told me, this would be his band... he gave me tracks, i've listened and was fascinated all about! i checked the web for their homepage, if they had one, and came to the old www.machinaesupremacy.com

i told him, what i found out, but he meant, this could not be, this had to be a fansite etc... 2months ago, he went from the school, but tried to told me again, this would be his band... i found out much more in time, like in interviews i read, but he said, robert, the singer of HIS band, hadn't told him any things about what's going in... he said, that robert told him, never to take part of interviews... such things he tried to told me... i found pix and videos of Machinae Supremacy, but never could notice him on stage or on photos... he said, the band was on tour without him, because he hadn't much time... what ever... i think he believes that really...

but all in all is machinae supremacy one of the best bands ever! a band, which started making music and got their own style...since the beginning...-R-E-S-P-E-C-T-!

I found out about MaSu through a buddy of mine, I dunno how he found out about them. He told me they were a 'power metal' band. How surprised I was to find out that a) they weren't a power metal band b) they didn't fit any pre-existing genre category and c) they were bloody awesome.

I was going through a phase of "i'm fed up of metal as there's nothing original in it anymore", then MaSu came along and gave me a well deserved kick up the arse  8)

The amount of free downloads meant I was able to get into MaSu really quickly, normally it takes me a while to get into bands. That wasn't the case with MaSu, it just clicked straight away. Hearing gaming music and metal combined was like a dream come true. It was like the first time I heard Pink Floyd, I was just like "wow..."

Result: I discover MaSu and I discover where Fiindil's been. >:O

I fucking own :)

My story hasn't changed in all the tellings. Both of my brother's playing Machinae Supremacy songs in the same room, at the same time.

How could I not fall in love with the music, when I simultaneously heard both Attack Music and Winterstorm?

Yeah I found them through In The Groove too back in September or October 2005. I was in love with Hybrid and so I went to bemanistyle.com to see if there was any simfiles for Stepmania for Machinae Supremacy. Then I searched google and found their website and downloaded all their songs and then ordered DXM only a few weeks ago cuz it took me forever to find. Now for Redeemer!(although I've tried ordering it twice and it rejected my credit cards twice ???)

o_O In Soviet Russia, music listens to YOU!

Well, some friend of mine told me about Machinae like years ago, I downloaded and listened to a few songs and then forgot about them again.
About a year later, I remembered them (I guess it was because of some StepMania game my then-girlfriend used to play, it had "The Great Gianna Sisters" in it), and downloaded all the MP3s and listened to them for some time on my portable MP3 player. I eventually moved on to listen to other music, but never forgot about Machinae from then on. I even had the DXM Wallpaper on what-used-to-be-my-laptop...
And some time later another friend of mine told me about this "cool new band" he just discovered.
So we listened to machinae together (while we were driving to Animagic '05 I think).
And since that time, their music had a great influence on my life, and I became a little Machinae-Fan ^^

I believe a friend of mine suggested that I should check them out, and suggested that I should start with Hero. Of course, he didn't need to note any certain song, since any of them back then would have caught me.

Nowadays, I rarely listen to anything else. Nothing appeals to me as they do. :P

To carry the legacy onwards, I believe I have converted at least three people into Machinae Supremacists, and made even more people hear about them.

And because I was not old at all I did not like it, just The Giana Sisters, I liked the synt... ;D Then it passed a year and I somehow found them again, some song on my computer, so I listen to them, and one day I just went to www.machinaesupremacy.com and downloaded the rest of the songs... They had not released DEM then... And i listen and listen, but i got bored of the songs after a while.... So it passed another year, and then I found them and started to listen again and found that they had released DEM, TWO NEW SONGS! ;D So i downloaded them, and I noticed that there were new song in the "Site Releases" section, so i downloaded them too. And after they released Redeemer I was completely in love. And the rest is kind of obvious, I listened and listened and try to convince my friends to listen, did work with some, and blablabalbalbabla....

In all his randomness my friend said something like "Hey I bet MaSu has really wicked shirts...!" then we saw the "Elite \,,/_(>_<)_\,,/" shirt and ordered one for both, it was over two weeks ago and I STILL HAVENT GOT THE SHIRTS?!

A friend or colleauge(sp) from animemusicvideos.org by the name of Requiett made a music video using the song "Ghost" by Machinae Supremacy and I thought it was a beautiful song, I also thought a similar sound would go well with the movie MirrorMask (since this music is abstract and somewhat electronica, I thought it would fit the abstract and interesting themes of the movie, which by the way I am gonna begin working on that music video soon so I will post a link to it in here when I am all done.. and hopefully I do there music justice).

Anyway, I have only been listening to MS for 9 hours now but Ive enjoyed every minute of it and I already bought both there CDs from the website, but I noticed not all of there music is on albums, and unfortunately Ghost isnt included in the Underground Edition and the retail edition doesnt seem to be available on the site [at the moment anyhow], and I dont know of anywhere that has the CD as I live in America... stupid country, no good music for us. =X

Well, if anyone can help me out with that I would be eternally grateful, even if I have the song on my computer already I want to actually own it.

So far my favorite songs by MS in order are: Ghost, Rise, Cryosleep, Masquerade, and Nemesis... but I am not yet familiar with all there music and havent listened to much of any of there album music, which I promise to get my study in as soon as those CD's arrive. =[]

One song I actually am confused about, or having mixed feelings about whether or not I like it would be "Hero", it seems a bit off in the beginning his voice jumps, but at the same time I like the sound of it.. so I'll have to think about that song.

Yep; longish post, but its what I have to say about this band, oh and I also have to say this is the least popular band I would consider one of my favorites, the others are Rob Zombie, KMFDM, Flogging Molly, The Cure, Alice Cooper, and The Chemical Brothers... but popularity doesnt mean shit, only now I can tell my friend [who only listens to indie music], that I now like a band with less fans than his bands which consist of Sciflyer, Starflyer 59 and The Choir...

Well, to the band keep on keeping on and to the fans, fly to Sweden to go to a concert.. I know I am going to, soon, if they dont get there *** on a US tour soon. =P

That's quite the, uh... bold statement.

Anyway, the retail edition hasn't been released yet, but Ghost (and everything else) should be available from the web site in the Discography section.

On last.fm:

Sciflyer: 503 listeners
Starflyer 59: 6552 listeners
The Choir: 1539 listeners

Machinae Supremacy: 14499 listeners

I dare say you underestimate the Machinae Supremacy fan community, as it is substantially more popular than all three of the bands you mentioned combined.

I dont think Giana was around 5 years ago, 4 maybe though. Anyone remember? I know what youre saying though cause that started a ton of buzz for Machinae. I think it hit OC Remix among other sites.

A vast majority of us seem to have fallen into Machinae in late 2002/early 2003 (which i fall somewhere in that spectrum myself), probably due to alot of the buzz caused by Giana and such (I'm guessing thats the time frame for Giana as well).

Im not sure honestly, its all fuzzy. Ironically the first song I heard I know had nothing to do with gaming (so it wasnt Great Giana Sisters).. and I dont even remember how I acquired it. Probably on accident. Hehe.

I don't think the Giana Sisters is on OCRemix because I have the whole library and don't have that song. (and believe me I'd notice if MaSu was on OCRemix ;)) And I wouldn't doubt it if Giana has been around for 5 years because the band was formed in 2000 and it's 2006 so there was potential for the band to have made the song in 2001, one year after the band was formed. :)

Yeah, but I dont think the internet releases started til mid/late 2001. But maybe I'm wrong.

You are correct in the 2000 thing though for sure...

I don't think the Giana Sisters is on OCRemix because I have the whole library and don't have that song.

I could have sworn Gianna Sisters was on ocremix.org too, but when I looked just now I couldn't find it. After looking some more I found it on remix.kwed.org, so that must have been what we were getting it confused with.

[To tie in with the topic -- I remember it was on a remix site because that's how I discovered Machinae Supremacy: I was looking for Commodore 64 remixes, and at the time Gianna Sisters was ranked number one on remix.kwed.org. I found Machinae's website in the MP3 tag and found their downloads page after that. Although I found them via the instrumental Gianna Sisters, I got hooked after hearing the lyrics of Hero and others.]


I dont think Giana was around 5 years ago, 4 maybe though. Anyone remember?

The MP3 tag in my copy of Great Gianna Sisters has a year of 2001.

The Great Gianna Sisters appeared on Machinae's website on or before 2001-10-26, so it must have existed on or before 2001-10-26, and thus seems to be at least five years old this month.

On 2001-11-03 they posted on their website news that "Chris Hülsbeck himself has put our gianna cover on his mp3.com page. If that's not a good review then I don't know what is ,). We rule." So I guess it was somewhat well known by that time.

I just noticed the Gianna page on remix.kwed.org (http://www.remix64.com/tune_85400.html) shows a release date of 2001-10-04, so it looks like it existed on or before that date. (I figured out it must be October and not April based on the format of the other dates on the page, so it wasn't quite as exciting as I first thought.)

In The Groove, I think 2002. Bouff and Hybrid were in it. And then Cryosleep was in In The Groove 2, and I'm not sure what's going to be on In The Groove 3. So after playing, I decided to google Machinae Supremacy, came across the site, listened to some more of the site release tunes, and was instantly hooked.

A friend got some music from another friend, some of it (he gave him like 4 data CDs) Machinae Supremacy's downloadable stuff, which my friend didn't know how to listen to since it was in .ogg

Being who I am, I knew that I could listen to Ogg Vorbis files and asked to see them, and now Machinae Supremacy has been one of my favorite bands.

Back in, it must have been 2002, probably summer or early autumn, though possibly late spring, a friend of mine played me a couple of songs he'd found on the net. I fell instantly for the music, and that's really it.

I joined the forums here about a year later, when I went off to the army, and had very much free time on my hands.

I saw a video of Machinae Supremacy performing their Giana Sisters cover at Back In Time Live 2002. After that I went to remix.kwed.org and downloaded the Sidology releases.

After this it took a few months before I ventured into the Machinae Supremacy website to see if they had more C64 remixes than what was in remix.kwed.org, discovered all their original releases and have been hooked ever since.

Im pretty sure I posted in one of theese threads quite some years back but here it goes again :)

Even more years back (like almost ten years?) I dug up my old C64 from the garage for some nostalgia gaming. I found some music-discs I had inherited from my cousin (got her C=128 because she has light epilepsy that didn't really go well with it). I know she had gotten them from some haxx0r friend because they also included some "electronig mail" as parts of the music-discs. Anyway I got hooked of course and after playing the same monotonic tune for like 3 hours without even nearly becoming tired of it (Ive noticed how much easier it is to listen to the same song if it doesn't stop-go every 3 minutes. SIDs often have internal loops if anyone didn't know) I thought "Hey I cant be the only one having a warm fuzzy feeling inside from the sound of a SID" so I went online and scoured the tubes (also known as the interweb) and found HVSC (High Voltage SID Collection) aswell as remix.kwed.org (wich I just realized is still alive).

Anyway somehow I managed to miss MaSus Gianna cover on remix.kwed.org somehow but luckily a friend of mine had heard of them and so happened to be one of the men behind the mini-festival FaceFront wich is a festival for unsigned bands that go every other year or so in Piteå (neighbouring town of Luleå) and told me he had invited them to come play and that I should check out the Gianna Cover. So I did and then I went to FaceFront and was blown away buy the energy (even tho they didn't play any C=64 remixes but the SID was there!). Also got a very huge Demo for free from Robert (who had blue hair at the time IIRC?). Anyway the nest day I went to their website and downloaded everything and has been a fan ever since. They are one of the few bands I pay to listen to and they don't even demand that I do it! :)

Have seen them 2 more times. Once when they were one of the forebands to Sahara Hotnights I believe when they played at Norrmalmia and once at Kåren in Luleå when a friend of mine went their to shoot some footage for a MaSu video she did as a project in school. I also starred in that video altho I havent seen it! :o

Is it available btw? (I know the school is a bit nazi about releasing stuff filmed with their equipment) If not does anyone in MaSu have it cause I would kill to see it ;D
If it isn't I'll ask Vera if it is possible to release it (and if MaSu approves of course)

Also found this pic from Dark Angel some years back 8) (Note: Noone in the picture was as sober as it looks)

It is clips from them playing Live at Kåren during Lappfejden I believe and then clips from me and a friend playing videogames (I beat him and he throws the controller while I stand up with my arms in the air) and some random videogame footage filmed in closeup of the TV IIRC. I know She didn't release it but I think she sent a copy to MaSu.

Anyway this is getting off topic. CEASE AND DESIST! ;D

During my day's of playing EVE Online, the corporation (read: clan) I was in had a shoutcast station to give us all something to listen to during the long gatecamps and mining missions. One evening the person in control played 'Seventeen' and the second I heard it I knew I had to hear more. People were saying Anthem Apocalyptica was also a good song so I tracked down the band site and the rest as they say, is history.

Nowadays MaSu is always on my mp3 player and has been on a constant random shuffle for god knows how long, there's just nothing else that's cutting it!

First post!
I was playing "Jets N Guns" and said... "OMFG WHAT IS THIS MUSIC!!" and the later days I realised that I was only playing that great game only to listen to the music xD
So I went a little further and find what that soundtrack was actually made by a band, who have a style called by someones "altered power metal", influenciated by arcade machines xD
Viewing the credits of the game I saw the webpage and finally find all the songs and others...
Actually my 3rd favourite band :) (after Nightwish and Sonata Arctica)

Post by: Bigsby on November 25, 2006, 12:09:29 pm
Well my story can go way way way back, basically to when I met a really awesome friend for the first time, but that's a bit far back.

I was reading some webcomics, actually I was bored because I had no webcomics to read, so I was on the ctrl+alt+del site and I found the Wintereenmas part of the site. I clicked around, and found the "places that are celebrating the best holiday ever" page. I ended up finding a LAN party right near where I live, in Vancouver Canada. This LAN was called LANcouver (oh, they're so sly, aren't they).

I clicked the link, and there was a flash intro to LANcouver 5, and the song was Giani Sisters. After I saw it the first time, I was forever enslaved to the power that is LANcouver, and I thought the song was freaking awesome, but no one would tell me who made the song. No one knew, except for most of the mods, and they wouldn't tell me. They wanted to keep it a secret for the time being.

Then they made another flash intro from LANcouver 6, which included two MaSu songs, Judgement Fray and Death From Above (which is still up on the site right now www.lancouver.com). I tried again to get them to tell me who it was, but they said that they would disclose that information at a later date, because they wanted to keep it magical 'n stuff.

Then one day on the forums, actually I was over at a friends house gaming it up on our 'puters and I was just taking a break, someone asked who made the music for the intros, and I replied that the peeps in charge wanted to keep it a secret. Someone else, who actually knew who it was, replied right after me saying that it was MaSu, and gave a link to the site. Lucky for me, I was still there to see it, because 20 minutes later, the post was gone and a different one was in it's place, like it had never been there. They said that they would reveal the mysterious band of awesomeness at LANcouver 7.

I then went and first of all, tried to find the intro songs, and after that, downloaded every single one that was on the site, though the servers were down for quite a few days, well they were on and off, but it took me quite a while to get them, but in the end, all my friends took the songs off of me and became addicts like me.

I now worship MaSu every morning, afternoon and evening, getting down on all fours while listening to a MaSu song, whichever one the randomizer happens to put on at that moment, and pretend to kiss the feet of MaSu. That is how I go about my day.

PS: I tried looking for an hour some MaSu stepmania songs, but all the links were either broken or for stats, which made me a sad panda. If anyone has them and would like to give them to me, could you please PM.

PPS: if anyone wants to see the LANcouver 5 intro, I have it saved on my computer, just send a PM, though I think if you search on the LANcouver forums, Tek, the guy who made the intros put up the flash files.

I quite agree, but they did say that they were going to tell everyone at L7, as well as have all their music there for people who want it. It's still bad form to not reveal who made the music, to hold it from us for this long, but at least they've promised that they're going to. I'm friends with most of the Admins, and it's really only one, the guy who's REALLY in charge there, the owner, who wants it kept a secret for so long.

I've been "accidentally" trying to get people from LANcouver to get their stuff from me, leaving a nice big folder called Machinae Supremacy (Lancouver music) in my networked Games folder, so whenever I'm at a LAN, or even just on Hamachi, there'll be at least a few people that go through that folder (partly looking for games, partly for "other" material) and they'll hopefully listen to some and then take the whole folder.

Yes, Rob, please go over and slap them, because then you'll have to come over to Canada, eh.

I was checking out the DVD from a swedish PC Gamer magazine. They had put in the demo from Jets'n Guns in it, it looked quite cool so i installed it.
And when the main theme goes playing i where stunned. Cool as hell, so i close the game and goes directly and check if the songs are put in the installation folder as an mp3 or ogg, and they are. After listening to it for hours i check the game credits, i google Machinae and finds the official site and downloads every song.

My ex was (and probably still is) a fan, and he recommended MaSu to me. My fandom started in Dec 2002/Jan 2003, can't remember the exact time. So it's been 4 years, whoah. The time flies, apparently.
Title: Re: How did YOU find Machinae Supremacy?
Post by: Prunella on January 19, 2007, 05:34:03 pm
Umm.. Can't remember exactly but it has been about 1.5 years since I heard Machinae for the first time. I was throwing a "party" and a friend of mine downloaded and then played Masquerade on my computer. I digged it and asked about the band and got some more tracks. Soon I had everything from the site and Deus Ex..
 For a loooong time all I listened to was MaSu, and MS was the first band for a really long time to make me a proper fan. (The worst way to say it but if you don't get it you're not that smart.) When Redeemer (finally) came out I ordered it right a way.
I hadn't been a real metal person before but Machinae has changed me.  ;) At the moment I'm trying to brainwash people with Machinae and get them to see the true greatness of MaSu. 
Löl, sounds geeky, but all I wanted to say is that i absolutely love Machinae Supremacy.

I've had similar, but most people I've introduced it to LOVE Masu (that's about 4 that I know of). One decided they were boring, but I've seen them listening to Super Steve on their MSN-"What you're listening to" thingo quite a few times, so i know they like at least one song  ;)

This is kind of a stupid story, but I first found Machinae Supremacy because one of the bandmembers looked just like my ex (which of them, you'll never guess). My flatmate had brought some free magazines at our flat and I found myself staring at a picture of them. At that time I was still terribly in love my ex, so I had to check out the webside mentioned in the text. I thought the band must be as terrible as my ex, but I happened to really like the music which I downloaded from the webside. I and some of my friends have a history of listening metalmusic (mainly some 80's music though), so I told them about the band and some of them have bought the records. I'm still waiting a win in the lottery or a summerjob to buy the albums (after paying the rent my incomes as a student are 140 euros a month), but I'll buy them, sooner or later. So the interwiews in the foreing papers can really help when finding out new listeners.

I was at the lab, drinking some beer untill i spilled some hydrocarbonate with the megauberjuicezors, because i spilled some beer in the goop that was standing around there.

It kept growing and turned out to be... Machinae Supremacy.

A guy in a forum posted the link to the (old) MaSu site ... he only said they were good. Yep ... and i found them very good too ;)

I think this was three years ago ... or three and a half  ???

Well I found Machinae Supremacy before they where really born.. Me and a friend of mine was into Counterstrike and Roberts old GF was a friend of my friend. Basically we started playing togheter in a clan called mtribe.. I was mtribe][vortex, my friend was mtribe][durra, robert i think was mtribe][starbob, I shit you not he had a wicked aiming! Was so long ago you hardly remember it. Well anyway. Basically robert invited us over for a barbeque to just chill and talk some loose gaming, so he had some tunes hanging around on his computer and I thought they where awesome. In another part of town another guy was sitting at home at his dads house playing the guitar recording some tunes etc.. Eventually these guys met up (jonne, robert) and apperantly the magic started flowing..

Gah got to go. will continue this later.. Writing from work (bad bad boy)

I found them after watching this (http://www.lfsforum.net/showthread.php?t=17320) music video for a game called Live For Speed. I poked around and found a torrent of pretty much all their music. After listening to it for a couple weeks I decided I wanted to buy DXM. A quick google showed me this site and I did just that. Gunna wait on Redeemer, hopefully I will be able to find it in a store in the states some time soon.

Bumped in to the band by accident in my brother's previous apartment. He was, as a Commodore 64 veteran, feeling a bit nostalgic and searching for "The Great Gianna Sisters" original theme from the Internet and discovered MaSu's cover. It sounded pretty fucking great! I told Him to download one of MaSu's own songs and he downloaded "Earthbound". When I listened that one I just had to get more, More, MORE...! At that point I knew there was no turning back. It happened in winter 2001.

Keep on rockin' guys. You've done a great job!  :)

I could've sworn that I've replied to this thread... Apparently not, though.

The first time I heard about the band was when I was leading a role-playing campaign at a friend's place a bit more than a year ago. We were having a short break after quite a few hours of playing and the friend decided to put some music on. As it happened, the first track on his playlist was Player One. I fell in love instantly, and downloaded all of their site releases immediately after I got home the next day.

I was listening through the computer games' soundtracks and at some point Jets'n'Guns appeared. First it was nostalgie because of the old PC beeper (as I thought it was). And after a few minutes it became a desire. A desire to get more of MaSu and the more the better. Irresistable feeling. Now it's like a drug - you didn't listen to MaSu - you lost the day. Damn, why am I so far from Sweden?.. :)

Looks like I havent posted here yet, oh well lets do it now :D
The first time I heard of MaSu was like 2-3 years ago when a classmate said that MaSu was probably the best thing he had heard so far. I didnt pay him no mind until a few weeks later when I felt I had to get me some new music. So I thought about what he said and downloaded Deus Ex (their one and only album at that moment). After I had lisened through some of the songs I deleted the album cause I didnt think they were anything special. A few weeks after this event I decided to give them a second chance. I suppose the Sidology was the songs that caught me at first, then it was Insidious and so on. Now Im a HUEG Machinae fan, I own all the cd's, 3 t-shirts and one machinae zipped hoodie :P
It was so worth it :D

Let that serve as a lesson for you all, never judge anything too fast :P

I Found MaSu through a friend of mine... He listens to allot of those SID sounds (remixes and orginals) and one 1 day (it's like 2 years ago now I guess) he sent me an MP3 of MaSu. And the moment the first few notes came out of my speakers, I was playing Air Guitar in my room. I was blown away of MaSu, and since that moment I listen to MaSu atleast! 1 song a day.

Sidstyler was one of the songs, and it was my favorite JLT =D So I went around Google-ing Machinae Supremacy and found the home page. Then I went to the webography, got every single tracked, loved all of them XD

October 4th, '05... the day I'll never forget. It was when polish gaming magazine, CD-Action, included a full version of Jets'n'Guns on their cover CD. I've read its review a month ago and I really liked it, so I installed the game ASAP. This day many people have felt a disturbance. As if thousands of souls cried out in joy, and were suddenly silenced by the awesomeness of JnG.

It went downhill from here. I really loved the music, so I went to MaSu's site, got more tracks, became a fan... kinda typical. :P

First thing I wanna say is I know there was a Topic about this before, but it's already been unactive for 120+ days and I wasn't looking forward to being flame-bait, so if this is really unnecessary I don't care if it gets locked.

Hey, my name is MigitAs, i'm a n00b, i'm Canadian, and I love Machinae Supremacy.

I first heard about the band while playing In The Groove 2.

I wouldn't call myself a DDR freak because i don't really  play DDR.

I played ITG2 for 2 years and beat every song on expert except V^2, it was in the early stages of this game that i fell in love with "Hybrid".

Moving on to "Bouff" and "Cryosleep" i knew i had to find more songs.

after hearing all the Sidology's i was hooked.

Legion of stoopid, stuff like that, the band blew me away.

My favourite bands before MaSu were:

Pink Floyd, April Wine, Supertramp, and Deep Purple.

I've always been into classic rock because i thought that my generation had forgotten what music is about.

Too many "bands" today are way to into themselves, concentrating on image, and how their hair looks instead of actually putting thought into their music and lyrics.

I had always said Supertramp was my favourite band because at the height of their popularity the band could walk down the street and barely anyone would even recognize them, the reason being the effort was totally put into the music, the vocals, the lyrics.

I think of MaSu as a great example to today's musicians and perhaps a ray of hope for our generation music-wise.

P.S. even with all that it wouldn't hurt for them to get so big that they could do a North American tour ;)

ok, 1st post end.

i'd go for mee-gee(hard g, not like "gee")-tas, but thats being kinda drunk and falling back into mother language =/

welcome anyways, and please no shyness(see, really stupid english... falling back into ur-mama-language ;/ *whine*) reviving old threads; this is not one of these tight-ass boards, with people whining 'bout that kind of stuff. people here whine only 'bout not enogh not enough SID on the new album(at the moment o course, once the excitements gone, they'll whine about everything they get their creepy little fingers on ^^)....

did I mention there was not enough SID on the new album?? There's never enough SID!!!1111 *whineywhine*
of course there`s also not enough Erica on the new album. there's never enough Erica voice........ will have to listen to INJA despite new album not being through with its 4week round the clock cycle, which is mandatory for new Masu albums .... usually that is, when theres enough SID and erica on em ;o

by the way, having a band member as active on the board as dezo is kinda cool(been inactive here for a year or so, sorry, just noticed, beat me for it =/). gaz was that way onIRC way back(maybe still, havent used mirc for a year -_-) too, will probably die down with the excitement about "yeah, im in masu, i am a god(yes, you are =/)" and all that stuff =PP....

Welcome, dude.

I fell in love with Machinae Supremacy when I heard Giana Sisters at http://remix.kwed.org/ . I listened it very many times and then I followed a link to maker's homepage, downloaded bunch of songs and I was all excited about it. There was long period of time before that when I listened only some bands and I did not find any new interesting bands. Music just seemed to lost most of it's spark at that time. Then this Machinae Supremacy reminded me that there's good music around and that there are good new bands emerging every now and then. I wrote my first fanletter (and so far my last one) and checked Machinae Supremacy's homepage several times a day. When I noticed that forum was opened I joined them instantly. Then I hanged around here for some time, left away for a year or something and then came back because I'm too addicted.

As with so many other things, Torp is the one to blame for getting me hooked on the band. Can't remember exactly when. I seem to vaguely remember being exposed to their music back in '04 when we were in the Army together, but it wasn't until I started playing Jets'n'Guns that I really got addicted.

Well, if we're all reminiscing...

I was referred to MaSu's website after I asked for more synth/rock bands on the Powerman 5000 forums. After listening to the webography and having my mate download and burn onto CDs for me (I had a crap connection back then) they quickly became my favourite band.

I heard them from my brother, he played a few web releases (They did not have much then) but I was not in to Metal at all then, so I never got caught.
Later though, when I decided to listen to them again, it was instant love! ^^

The way I found out about MaSu was pretty randomly.  I just got a last.fm account and one of my neighbors had it as their #1 played artist and I thought they had a cool name so I checked them out.  I was blown away to say the least.  Originally my two favorite songs were Great Gianna Sisters and Legion of Stoopid.  Now I can barely listen to them because I overplayed them so much.  Haha.  Luckily there's a lot of really good shit to go around that I would have to listen to pure MaSu for like a year straight to get sick of it all.  Even then i doubt I would. 

But yeah props to whoever it was that got me into MaSu on that site, don't remember now.

Pretty much same as the person above. :)
October 4th, '05... the day I'll never forget. It was when polish gaming magazine, CD-Action, included a full version of Jets'n'Guns on their cover CD. I've read its review a month ago and I really liked it, so I installed the game ASAP. This day many people have felt a disturbance. As if thousands of souls cried out in joy, and were suddenly silenced by the awesomeness of JnG.

It went downhill from here. I really loved the music, so I went to MaSu's site, got more tracks, became a fan... kinda typical. :P

Just the same :D
Now, I play (maybe a bit late...) the Gold version and love it more than ever :)

First thing I wanna say is I know there was a Topic about this before, but it's already been unactive for 120+ days and I wasn't looking forward to being flame-bait, so if this is really unnecessary I don't care if it gets locked.

Hey, my name is MigitAs, i'm a n00b, i'm Canadian, and I love Machinae Supremacy.

I first heard about the band while playing In The Groove 2.

I wouldn't call myself a DDR freak because i don't really  play DDR.

I played ITG2 for 2 years and beat every song on expert except V^2, it was in the early stages of this game that i fell in love with "Hybrid".

Moving on to "Bouff" and "Cryosleep" i knew i had to find more songs.

after hearing all the Sidology's i was hooked.

Legion of stoopid, stuff like that, the band blew me away.

My favourite bands before MaSu were:

Pink Floyd, April Wine, Supertramp, and Deep Purple.

I've always been into classic rock because i thought that my generation had forgotten what music is about.

Too many "bands" today are way to into themselves, concentrating on image, and how their hair looks instead of actually putting thought into their music and lyrics.

I had always said Supertramp was my favourite band because at the height of their popularity the band could walk down the street and barely anyone would even recognize them, the reason being the effort was totally put into the music, the vocals, the lyrics.

I think of MaSu as a great example to today's musicians and perhaps a ray of hope for our generation music-wise.

P.S. even with all that it wouldn't hurt for them to get so big that they could do a North American tour ;)

ok, 1st post end.

Amen

In a discussion about gaming sounds, someone mentioned (jokingly) that we should make a metal version of the Super Mario theme.

This instantly prompted me to answer it should be Giana Sisters, because the game kicks such a ridiculous amount of ass.


Just for the fun of it, a third guy who was sitting at his PC searched for "Giana Sisters Metal" or something, and found a discussion about Machinae Supremacy music. And well, the rest is history. ;)

Title: Re: How did YOU find Machinae Supremacy?
Post by: Nelethar on August 03, 2008, 12:56:01 am
Wow, I feel old writing this, but six or seven years ago...

... Freenode (http://www.freenode.net) started a webradio project called WOPN (and, later, Freenode Radio). They played only music they could get for free from artists, so as a result the music was pretty good alternative stuff that was a pleasure to listen to.

One day, while I was listening, a song ended, and I was hit by a wall of sound that scared the shit out of me for a few seconds. That wall of sound was Winterstorm. Once I got over the shock (the previous song was really calm), I found that I really liked what these "Machinae Supremacy" folks were doing.

After a few more WOPN shows, I'd heard Earthbound, Masquerade, Arcade, and I was hooked. Because of my age, I'd missed the C64 golden days by a few years, but the SID sound still brought me back to a childhood of messing with an Atari ST while my dad grabbed Atari warez on BBS over minitel (a french proto-internet attempt). Eventually, I found the homepage, downloaded more tracks, and became hooked.

Deus Ex Machinae was the first CD I ever bought, a few weeks into my university life. Over the years, I've gone to other genres, sometimes leaving MaSu alone for months at a time, but each time I returned, it was like meeting a long lost friend. Turn up the sound and blast some Arcade, Earthbound, Blind Dog Pride, Player One, and no matter what shit happens in my life, it just doesn't matter any more. I'm back to those nights of listening to WOPN while hacking away to the sound of Swedish SID metal.

I never subscribed to the forum because I didn't feel like I had much to say aside from "omg lol u rock!", and because life kept getting in the way of getting any real presence here. A few weeks ago, I returned after nearly a year away from SID sounds, and holy shit, you've released a new album. The order is placed at the webshop (c'mon spinefarm, send it!), and I can't wait to put this album next to my DxM and Redeemer UE on the shelf.

It's been a good time so far, watching MaSu evolve from the indie web-only band, to where it is now, signed and publishing awesome music for all to enjoy.

By the way, dear MaSu, I'm planning on visiting Sweden in August... You wouldn't happen to have a couch available for me in Luleå? The drinks are on me! ;D ... Please?

Rock on.

i first read about Machinae Supremacy when a friend was looking for music for a WoW vid. the name itself sounded interesting to me so i google'd the band name and found some tracks and dl'ed them. i was a bit surprised for i didnt expect that kind of music. i caught everthing i could find on the web and i'm listening to this music on my one hour way to work for 2 months now. i'm still not tired of it. bands like Machinae Supremacy are rare nowadays, decent music with stories and statements of todays misfortune. you're right with a lot of things and i hope you will stand by your way and keep up your work for the satisfaction of your growing community.


i'm looking forward to see you live some day.

Their drummer told me about the band. We used to play in the same WoW-guild back in 2006. He replied to a thread on our forum, where some of our members showed their own bands.

Been hooked on the band ever since. I even bought J&G just so I could hear the soundtrack (didn't realize they had it up for download on their own site >.>).

It all started when I was trying to find some music to listen to on imeem.com. I was looking for a particular song that had the word "glass" in it (can't remember the title of the song but I know now that the band was the Birthday Massacre) and mistakened that song to be "Through the Looking Glass". Suddenly attracted to the intro, I decided to listen to the entire song. Once that was done, I decided to listen to more of their songs. Since then, I've been a big fan since.

My friend had lots of masu scrobbled on last fm so I asked him about the band and he played some to me but I didn't think of it that much, but a week later I downloaded owerworld (bought a copy last mounth) and I thougt that this was the best thing I had ever listened to, so I downloaded it all and have listened to it ever since. (3000 scrobbles on last fm and counting)  ;D

Do you mean downloaded it all and then bought it all?

I'm pretty sure i've told you kids about my findings of MaSu via VisionThing, but let's quote from the past!

The one you know as Megadokyo showed my friend Dan a few of the tracks and then they did the rounds of all our friends. The big track that everyone loved was Sidstyler and some of us wound up getting into Machinae in a big way!

Fact.

Back when i was in a clan called 7samaurai, playing counter-strike, they made a flash making all of us south park characters and saying who we were and putting us in comical killing situations. And the background music was SIDStyler.. so i hunted and found you guys. Some claim i introduced MaSu to Belfast, but then there's nobby so i don't know.

Either way, its all good :)

The origin of the fact, in fact form.

I played it, and i find soundtrack fuckin' awesome. i wantedto listen 'em on wmp, but it didn't support ogg. I read credits, i visited masu page (bleeding GaZ on top version), and downloaded all songs. As you know they rocked ;), so i became MaSu fan.

It was MaSu's Arcade album that was free on their website. I had never heard of them and was blown away. From then on, I've been HOOKED. To the point that their now my #1 fav. band.

Friend recommended through the looking glass, then i found edge and pearl. Went on holiday and i literally played those 2 songs for 2 weeks straight on repeat. When i came back i downloaded all the albums and i realised just how different all the songs are in comparison to those 2.

But i loved the whole chip tune metal thing.

Way back when, I had just thrown Frets on Fire at my system, and was looking for more cool stuff to play. Friend through the web suggested the Great Gianna Sisters, and my old love for "Amiga" style synth blib blib sound music rekindled, leaving me craving everything else made by the Supremacy.
Now, I do daily rituals at a shrine build for this purpose. It involves great amounts of mayonnaise and the burning of dollar bills while blasting Player One into the stratosphere.

Don't forget to download all out old stuff too!!

Well I think that is better to try sompthing before you buy and if you like a product then might as well buy it if you think its worth it (thats why I download all my games and play/finish them and if I consider it worth buying then I do). After I orderd Overworld I then went to www.playlist.com and searched for MuSu and I downloaded all of the promo tracks and some of the Redeemer album (for some reason I cannot find it to deliver in Belgium :() and I cannot belive that Crosleep was the bands first released track (Wikipedia info)... so damn amazing :)

Oh, man... That was 6 or 7 years ago. My friend subscribed to a relatively independent computer-gaming magazine "Game.EXE". They had not bad trial discs with demos and music. And on one of them I found Anthem Apocalyptica, Hubnester Inferno and a few other songs. I was greatly inpressed, especially with Anthem. But that time I even hadn't had I-net, so I had been for 3-4 years befor I could get in Google and find out everithing about MaSu.
Now I'm waiting to buy MaSu albums on CD's, but I strongly hesitate that they'll appear in Russia for a few years.(

I am actually suprised that there are other people I know that know abut MaSU=)

Then I asked him to send me some MaSu songs from the site like Hero and the Sidology Episodes.

OK here comes my story:
I was playing Trackmania Nations. The track was loading so I stood up and walked out of my room. And then the game started and somebody uploaded for his track Bouff as background music. Well I was in the kitchen, totally forgotten that my pc was still on and then I thought wtf is this awesome sound. I came back, looked at the song title
and read bouff. Who the f*** is bouff? So yeah after some minutes with my good friend google I found this website. This is now a month ago so you see I´m a newbie. But well I´m addicted to MaSu I´ve downloaded all the free stuff and bought some T-Shirts, DXM and Redeemer.

Well, I was a huge Linkin Park fan before I heard you guys. I really have to say your style is similar to the very first LP album hybrid theory.

But you are really better than them, cause you are from Sweden and Sweden is good for two things: 1. Beautiful women 2. kickass Metal

I´ve already told my friends about you. One of them is now also addicted to you, but the others are more into pop xD

Well done. You are well on the way to recovery from your awful sickness. By listening to Machinae Supremacy 50 times a day you will surely be cured of that terrible disease known as Linkin Park. Just look at me! I am a prime example the success of the MaSu-cure - I used to be a rabid LP fanboy but those days are far behind me.

There was loads of music that i liked rock/metal/gamemusic(nintendo mostly) but he had got hold of Deus Ex Machinae and songs from internet and after a week of listening and rating i happened to have almost whole Deus Ex machinae on my "like/love" list. Then i went and got all the freesongs from the download page and started waiting for new album.
It was due my distant friend in norway that i found about MaSu and damn happy about it :)

No epic story for me.
I think it was maybe a year and a half ago? Someone posted a topic on GameFAQs saying something like "This band NEEDS to be in Guitar Hero 3!" and posted a link  to the MaSu Myspace. Back then it was 4 songs from Redeemer. I'm gonna take a guess and say they were Fury, Rise, Rogue World Asylum, and Through the Looking Glass.

ANYWAYS, I liked the songs enough to look the band up and get the rest of their music  :D

Hey all,

I got into MaSu ~6 months ago as my boyfriend is a massive fan. He played me Gimme More and I was hooked! It's such an accessable song as I knew the Britney version (don't judge me - I'm not a Britney fan, the song plays against my will in discos...) I listened to the rest of Overworld and then pretty much worked backwards through the discography! Love it!!!

I immediately had to alt+tab out and look em up, causing my ship to explode (but I didn't really care at that point. Rarely do I love a song that much). I noticed that they were swedes like me, so I got even MORE interested. I looked up some more songs on youtube, and yeah, been listening to them ever since.

About 6 months ago now, I think. Fav song atm is "Death from Above", it's pure audible adrenaline.

Hey guise. So I saw this flash a long time ago that had two stickmen dancing to Death From Above, you may have seen it. So anyway, I had no clue what the song was for some time and hunted ruthlessly for the artist and song title and eventually found them on youtube. They are now my favourite band of all time and I'm constantly listening to them  ;D

oh well, I heard Player One as background music on an e-magazine of some sort. It was playing in the archives of the magazine and I was so touched that I couldn't read the old issues from sadness. Then I heard the group and got its songs(unfortunately from teh internets as in my country the albums are not sold as far as I know). And here I am, writing this while listening to Deus Ex Machinae.

Few years back a friend of mine asked me if I would be able to mix couple of gigs in Finland for a Swedish sidmetal band called Machinae Supremacy. I didn't know a damn thing about the band before the show in Inferno except for few song that my friend had sent to me.

30 minutes before the show I had an accident and was rushed to the hospital to get pathec up...and 1 minute before the gig was supposed to start I was behind my console with a broken finger, couple of stitches and bloody arm.

It hurt like hell for the whole show but when the guys got to Reanimator I was already in love, and I'm still on the same road, tearing your ears of, making them ring for weeks after the show and just being a general fuckhead.

Mika/ FoH engineer, Machinae Supremacy

yesterday i bought overworld, and i think it's really fantastic. i want get all the other albums, i think it's correct to support a great band. i also would like to see MaSu in concert, but they play quite far from italy :(

Oh my, I so forgot this thread existed and almost lost my "get-one-more-post" opportunity @_@

If I remember correctly, it was a short time, maybe weeks, before the first DXM was released.

I was doing some Maths and my friend simply sent me a link to the website, site releases of course. It's sad, but I don't remember, which was the first track I listened to. I don't even remember whether I thought "Omigosh this is so awesome need to download more" or was just in a mood and downloaded it all without any listening, just believing to my friend's "Omigosh this is so awesome". It is more likely, however, that the former was the case.

At first it was just awesome music to me, then as time passed by, it became something more. I've had some shorter and longer periods of being in love with many, maaany rock and metal bands, but this is the only one that remained from the very beginning till today.

I have already posted on this topic, but I thought I'd tell you about two people I managed to turn to the dark side, the side with cookies (I doubt they are awesome enough to get accounts on the forum, so I'll tell you about them instead):
1. My first tale stars a friend of mine who, like me, enjoys playing video games. One day, in a science lesson, we were using the school's laptops for "revision". Instead, I directed my friend to the MaSu website and told him to plug in his headphones and listen to the site releases. Less than a year down the line, he is getting EOTW for christmas!
2. This tale is set about two weeks ago. For two years, I have been telling my friend to check out MaSu. He is into the sort of rock/metal/azzum genre of music, so I though him and MaSu were a perfect match. However, I did not account for the fact that he is a lazy fucktard. Finally, I managed to get him to listen to the intro to Dark City about two weeks ago, and I am planning to burn him a copy of Overworld/EOTW so he can listen to the more recent tracks. While he hasn't technically turned to the cookie side yet, I suppose it is only a matter of time...

I first found about MaSu way back in very early '07, when a friend of mine made a video of a track he made in the game Trackmania United, and it had the song Fury 07 playing. Needless to say i loved the song on first hearing, and i went to find the band's website [thankfully, the artist was in the description], listened to some more of the MaSu web collection, and then i was hooked  ;D

I've already said this before but I was hooked from ITG. Props for getting your music out there in this form I'm sure you got a lot more people listening than you originally thought! I've converted or at least partly converted about five or six people to MaSu.

I first discovered MaSu about 4 years ago, if I recall correctly. I'm not quite sure whether I'd already discovered SLAY radio. I think I was reading the Wikipedia article on Great Giana Sisters on a trip down nostalgia lane, and saw a reference there. Being both a metal fan and a fan of game music in general and C64/SID in particular (I don't think I was old enough to go to school by the time my father packed up the C64 in favour of a PC, but I can still remember the games and music), the combination just couldn't go wrong.

Machinae Supremacy - Overworld (the song) came up in "related videos" on Youtube when I was listening to another song. I thought the band name sounded cool so I gave it a shot. Thought it was pretty good so I listened to some more songs on Youtube like Edge and Pearl & Hero then fell in love with Through the Looking Glass. From then I got both Overworld and Redeemer (the albums) and fell in love with both. After that I seeked out every single song I could by Machinae Supremacy and never looked back.

I found MaSu in the winter last year, after listening to an episode of the podcast "BluePlz" by TotalBiscuit (a gaming-guru who makes podcast and videos, mainly focusing on WoW and SC2) played a song on the show and mentioned that he had been supporting the band the entire time and that their new album was their best so far. Since I was listening to the podcast (and not the live-show), I couldn't hear the song, but I looked them up on YouTube and was quickly hooked.

Lol at the Trollf edition. My story is sort of the same, except some guy on IRC sent me Fury. Overworld is my favourite, not because it is any better than the other 3-4, but because it was the one that got me hooked. I think their best is RUE. Personally.

I became friends online with a guy from Norway in 2007, he showed me his favorite band Machinae Supremacy back then.
Now they're my favorite band.

New guy here.

I was introduced when my girlfriend put it on before we would fly into battle in this space MMO we play. The first song I heard was "Through The Looking Glass". I was instantly hooked.

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

Well, I was 14 years old and we didn't get broadband until that year. I was bugging the hell out of my parents every day until we finally got it :P

Back when I was pretty new to the internet, I was watching youtube videos for Super Smash Bros Melee, and one of the videos had the song Winterstorm in it. I ended up liking it so much that I searched google for the band and saw a lot of their songs available for free download, so I downloaded almost all of the ones they had up and loved their sound.

I had wireless internet around that time. The kind that requires you do put an antenna on your roof, then use it to connect to a tower somewhere in the city. The name escapes me right now.

Yeah.. that wasn't fun. Especially since I was just a kid and got Internet access in 100MB increments (dear god I wish I was kidding).

So true - I think I'm allergic to most of the local radio stations here in my Canadian city. There's only 2 radio stations I can swallow - one being a college campus station. Other than that I only ever use TuneIn Radio, the mobile app, on my Blackberry. I like to listen to Guerrilla Radio ("Rock is dead...Long Live Rock!") on that app. Other than that....no radio.

It's like a visceral reaction if I have to listen to the "chart toppers"  >:(

I think first track i heard from MASU was Killer Instinct and its still one of my favorite MASU songs of all time. But Jets 'n' Guns and Overworld is what got me hooked on MASU.
