Metal Blade Records has announced the signing of the German metal act MACHINEMADE GOD.
MACHINEMADE GOD is a five-piece hailing from the Rhine/Ruhr area in Germany. Formed in early 2003, MACHINEMADE GOD have been able to showcase their energetic stage performance supporting numerous renowned national and international acts from both the metal and hardcore genres, including GOD FORBID, CALIBAN, HEAVEN SHALL BURN and AS I LAY DYING.
After releasing just one demo, MACHINEMADE GOD went to Denmark to record their much anticipated debut album, entitled "The Infinity Complex", in April/May 2005. For producer they chose no one less than Jacob Bredahl of HATESPHERE, knowing he was the right person to achieve the uncompromising sound they were aiming for. His mixing expertise, combined with the mastering skills of Ziggy at ZigZound Studios, made this effort one hell of a brutal metal record.
The band had the following to say about their signing with Metal Blade Records: "It's hard to put into words what we're feeling and thinking right now. This deal is of a caliber that you don't just acknowledge and move on with your life. In fact, it has swept us pretty much off our feet. One thing is for sure, we are very excited about working with these guys because they have welcomed us with open arms and have made us feel extremely comfortable right from the start. We are honored being from now on considered a part of the Metal Blade family. In return, we believe that Metal Blade is the right partner on our side to evolve as a band and give us the support and possibilities that we’re looking for from a label. Once again, we're very excited about the future and are glad that we have found a home!"
