Too bad there is nothing that sounds like them, yet.

Very true.


However, I\'m still willing to help out. But first, Demonic, we need to know what is it about Machinae\'s music that you like the most that you wanna hear from other bands? Is it the chip sound, the melody, the vocals, the guitaring, etc.?

i guess you couldnt go wrong trying a few of the artists on this list: http://www.last.fm/music/Machinae+Supremacy/+similar

although i'm not sure how similar they'll all be, but you should find something you'll like.

Thats what I was fearing, their sound is so unique! I couldnt find any band on last.fm (that was one of the first places I looked) that had their awesomness.

Exactly why I came here. I figured someone must know something that at least has some of their qualities. What do I enjoy most about them...hmmm...I suppose it would be how they incorporate the techno sound of the sid with their Metal Rock sound. vocals...eh...aint to great, but the guitar work is phenomenal! Hope that helps.

Chip techno/metal. As a far out suggestion try Metronome. My second favorite band. A Japanese group that uses more NES-like sounds blended with punk and more recently J-rock music. It\'s definately worth just having a listen to see what you think. Unfortunately the best English fansite went down a while back so I don\'t know any good links. There should be a myspace page tho.

You could also try Deadsy. They mix chip sounds with very dark, gothy, distorted music. It\'s slow and they\'re bastards to their fans, but their first (only) album Commencement is good.

I can\'t really say about more metal bands cos tbh that isnt my forté.

Try the song "Speak" by Queensryche. Very similar feeling of rebellion (though the lyrics might be a little silly), and a fucking jammin guitar solo that I always thought was very much like Machinae's style.

fuck, here you go.

I even edited in the awesome little intro before the guitar that's actually a part of the previous track, but deserves to be in this one. best track on the album.

Im downloading that Queensryche song right now, thx for uploading.

Thats cool an all.

Pagan's Mind has some stuff similar.
Title: Re: I need some help here please :D
Post by: DemonicHoard on May 27, 2006, 07:19:08 am
Maybe this will make it easier to help.

Everything I love about MaSu can be summed up in the Sidology trilogy.

Try typing Machinae Supremacy into Pandora; it likes artists more according to style whereas last.fm does it by listeners.

did you check out pagan's mind, Demonic ?
Title: Re: I need some help here please :D
Post by: DemonicHoard on May 28, 2006, 02:30:42 am

Post by: DemonicHoard on May 28, 2006, 10:43:08 am
Im liking Masugn, though what its a little bit darker (only word I could think of) than I like. But maybe I will grow to like it. I was exactly ecstatic about MaSu when I first heard them.

Also, from what I heard off of pagan's minds site I think im really gonna like them.

Dream Theatre sort of sounds like Machinae Supremacy. They have a keyboard that sometimes sounds like Gordon's SID Station. Try to torrent the album Octavarium(the song Octavarium is 23 minutes long!). Yeah the vocals dont sound exactly like them but they are still pretty good. And I am listening to Octavarium right now and I love it(but not as much as Machinae Supremacy ;D)
Title: Re: I need some help here please :D
Post by: FallenTabris on May 28, 2006, 08:56:45 pm
Dream Theater's absolutely nothing like MaSu other than the fact that they have a keyboardist. oh, and some cool guitar solos, I suppose.
Title: Re: I need some help here please :D
Post by: Bates on May 28, 2006, 09:05:26 pm
Try rather melodic metal of different speeds. I recommend Sonata Arctica, Wintersun, Dragonforce. None of them really sound like Machinae, but chances are you'll like at least one of them.
Title: Re: I need some help here please :D
Post by: Lysander on May 28, 2006, 09:16:08 pm
Those bands, music wise, are great. But their vocals are kind of a let down. ):

I was only trying to help geez.

And I did say the vocals didn't really sound the same.

Sonata? Nevar! Tony's vocals are liquid win, especially in the more complex songs (White Pearl, Black Oceans?)

Wintersun... ok, it's not really singing, more like... growl-chanting.

Dragonforce... they're so over the top, I sometimes think they're a metal parody or something...

I\'ve been checking out more melodic metal bands recently thanks to various myspace pages. I\'ve already said I like Finntroll. This weekend I checked out Sonata Arctica and Blind Guardian. Sonata Arctica are the win; Blind Guardian (from what I\'ve heard) are very much the lose.

Still to check out: Dream Theater, Wintersun, Helloween...
Title: Re: I need some help here please :D

blind guardian have a superb singer.. he's different anyway, controversal, but i like him.

Im not really diggin pagan's mind (finally finished downloading). But, I am liking Masugn more and more I listen to it. I also found another band (thanks to pandora), called the Devin Townsend Band. Pretty good stuff if you ask me.

Post by: DemonicHoard on May 31, 2006, 07:16:05 am
I dont really know. Im not a huge fan of prog rock to begin with. A few of their songs are fine, but I dont really find much of the technical instrument skills that I look for in other bands present in most of pagan's songs. Im keeping it, gonna give it a few days to sink in and maybe I'll enjoy it more (im like that sometimes).


Anyways, thanks a ton guys I was really hurtin for some new music.
