Playing melodic death metal with a wealth of sinewy snarl and crushing riffs (“The Passing,” “Reason is the Truth”), Machinery’s nine-track excursion, The Passing, does more than the norm to avoid sounding like your garden variety endeavor. Demonstrating a blend of In Flames, Nevermore, and The Crown throughout the duration of this disc, this Stockholm squad also display an understanding of crunchy mid-tempo mood metal a la Katatonia on cuts like “Decide by Pain”, exhibiting their multi-textured modern melange of metal that fans of Children of Bodom and Scar Symmetry can easily latch onto. www.regainrecords.com – Mike SOS
