Machinery was formed in late 2001 by guitarist/singer Michel Isberg and drummer Johan Westman. Their first demo 'A PART OF STEEL IN AN ENDLESS MACHINE' was released in October 2002 and at this point the music was far more heavy metal-oriented than it is today.
Through time the band grew character and in October 2004 the release of 'THE BEGINNING' saw the light of day! An eight-track demo which by now can characterize how the band crafted their sound. A hybrid between Death, black, thrash and heavy-metal; Imagine combining a classic thrashband with a dose of heavy metal, stirred with some progressive elements and flavoured with a touch of Norwegian black metal... a formula which was further expanded on the 2005 demo 'RISING'.
In May 2006 Machinery participated on the 'Thrashing The Masses' compilation released by Last Entertainment. With the success of the Thrashing The Masses, Machinery started to prepare for their debut full-length album, and in August 2006 'DEGENERATION' was recorded with producer Sverker Widgren in Necromorbus studio.(Watain, In battle, Mörk gryning, Bloodshed).
In October 2006 'DEGENERATION' was released through Last Entertainment. Altough shortly after, guitarist Markus Isberg left the band and was replaced by Mano Lewys. The spring of 2007 was spent on writing material for the upcoming album which was recorded in June at Black Lounge Studio together with Jonas Kjellgren (Scar Symmetry).
The new album entitld “The passing” can be described as an intense journey in epic and diverse metal. An album with great songs and an unique style that covers Heavv, Death,Black and Thrash! A perfect blend of what should truly appeal to every metalhead!
