Machinery is a quintet hailing from Sweden whose progressive approach to their blistering assault is garnished with Nevermore-esque structures intertwined with the usual batterings found on cuts like "River Red". Despite a lackluster production, the nine-track DEGENERATION manages to captivate with an enriched sense of musicianship and a solid songwriting prowess that keeps the songs teetering between left of center art-metal and in your face power groove. Knowing how to kick ass and keep themselves musically challenged in the process, this outfit, despite their obvious leanings on a certain Seattle metal troupe, has put forth a sturdy metal album brimming with intellectual fury for those who prefer thinking man's metal.
