It seems that Man.Machine.Industry has anchored itself into an industrial metal style of music with this new album. The band has always been staying in close proximity to metal music (they come from a cradle of all heavy European music genres – Sweden) and their songs have remained aggressive, but have many industrial touches as well. Fortunately, they have more imagination than redundant marching beats. The arrangements were not mindlessly formed into a slaughterhouse of butchered loops and grind in the manner found all too often when it comes to thrash, black metal or death metal styles, but were clearly divided into intelligible verses and choruses.

A few bands came to mind while listening to this album, some of which M.M.I. probably found inspiration through when they were recording the album. There are traces of Ministry ("Who I Am Is How I Kill", "The Hunt"), Prong ("Broken Bones & Twisted Minds", "As In Life...As In Death"), Killing Joke ("At The End Of The Tunnel"), and Misery Loves Co. ("Knuckle Duster", "Hell, Sinners & Demons Await"). They seem to be utilizing sounds similar to a lot of other music I have been exposed to. I believe death metal and grind core music fans might find other familiarities within the tunes, however M.M.I. has a musical style and sound very much their own.

The groups rhythm section (Nail on bass and DNA on drums) cooperates very well with J. Bergman’s guitar riffs and his violent vocals which fill very tightly into the structure of the songs.
There is also an interesting accent of Misery Loves Co. as lead singer Patrik Wirén has a guest appearance on the album, doing vocals on the track "Almost Gone". Those of you who have already heard the music of MLCo.would know what characteristic vocals he has to offer.
Other guests on the album include Gustav Jorde (Defleshed/Valley of the Dead), Misha Sedini (Come Sleep/Lingua), Ken Stone (The Knockouts) and an underground poet and novelist by the name of Lady M.

To sum it up, the music on the album doesn’t need a long description so I’ll stop here, but I think the information noted above is enough to illustrate the album content.
