4.0 out of 5 stars Rise of a Digital Nation
Rise of a Digital Nation is Machinae Supremacy's latest album. It is a refreshing update to their sid-metal style which will please more mainstream-oriented newcomers while still keeping fans of their earlier material happy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Machinae Supremacy - Rise of a Digital Nation
What to call this? Candy Metal, perhaps! It's definitely loaded with sugary sweet effects, and easy hum-along melodies. Yes, as a matter of fact it is some form of pop disguising itself as metal. But it IS catchy.

Rise of a Digital Nation is Machinae Supremacy's latest album. It is a refreshing update to their sid-metal style which will please more mainstream-oriented newcomers while still keeping fans of their earlier material happy.

Overall, I found most of the album to have some some catchy and enjoyable songs. None of the songs is really disappointing, although in the end, in terms of how rememberable the tunes are, I would not rank this album as highly as Overworld, Redeemer, or A View from the End of the World, inter alia. However, this album is still very pleasant to have in the background, and does contain some truly epic hits such as 99 and Laser Speed force which will knock you off your feet. Furthermore, it really reflects the continuous technical improvement made by the band, and in particular Robert Stjärnström, who has many occasions to show off the improvements to his voice and vocal range in this album.

To summarise, while this is not the best album yet, it remains thoroughly enjoyable and would make a good addition to any MaSu fan's collection, as well as a good purchase for anyone curious about this band's sound.

What to call this? Candy Metal, perhaps! It's definitely loaded with sugary sweet effects, and easy hum-along melodies. Yes, as a matter of fact it is some form of pop disguising itself as metal. But it IS catchy.

The band started out as a power metal band, but has infused the sound with a lot of digital instruments, creating a metal sound mixed with synths that sometimes feel straight out of the 80s. And to add honey on top of the sugar, they sample 8-bit old-fashioned computer sounds on top of everything else. These sounds aren't overly intrusive, but as you can guess this band is a lot about the EFFECTS and SOUNDS, rather than song building and lyrics. They do it fairly well though.

The songs are catchy, like I said, fast and pretty rocking. The vocals are clean and easy to follow. And it's all over in just over 40 minutes.

My guess is that you will enjoy this album for a while, and then you will forget about it. If you can get past the candy-effects.
