Yesterday while cruising Facebook, I noticed that Dillinger Escape Plan‘s label Party Smasher Inc. is releasing the debut album Good News by Billy Rymer’s other band No Machine.
Intrigued by that fat-bottomed, rockin’ promo, I tracked down the band’s prior EP to give it a little listen.
What I found was a sleazy, groovy mathcore EP with an emphasis on the riffs. Off-kilter, manic, staccato chords rise up like islands vomited from grinding tectonic plates amid the crashing waves of seething, tidal rhythms. Over the course of these four tracks, No Machine sound like a more rock-oriented DEP engaging in a particularly burly bout of fisticuffs in a seedy biker bar. If you like DEP, Every Time I Die, or The Chariot, I have a feeling you’ll enjoy this.
If you want to get your hands on the limited edition vinyl LP of Good News, it went on sale today right when this post went live. Go to the Party Smasher site to grab it. If you dig the EP, you can download it for free here. Be sure to give No Machine a like on Facebook as well.
