Are you looking for thrills? Are you looking for intense emotions? Are you
looking for metal? Welcome to the ‘Circus of Fools’.
Machine Men has delivered quality metal ever since their self titled debut
EP from 2002, and they have performed at prestigious festivals such as
Wacken Open Air, Earthshaker, Graspop and Sauna Open Air.
The single ‘Falling’ taken from the 2005 release ‘Elegies’ even made it
into the top five on the official Finnish charts.
Machine Men continues to deliver a kick ass mixture of Nocturnal Rites
and Iron Maiden, the album are packed with strong arrangements and
On the song “Tyrannize” the resemblance between vocalist Antony and
Bruce Dickinson is stunning, I’m pretty sure that Dickinson would have
been proud if he had delivered the same performance.
There are several special guests on ‘Circus of Fools’ such as Tommi Salmela
(Tarot), Marko Heitala (Nightwish) and Keijo Niinimaa (Rotten Sound).
The album is recorded at the Fantom Studio and mixed by Mika Jussila at the Finnvox Studios and the sound is powerful and brilliant.
Recommended tracks: “Tyrannize”, “The Shadow Gallery” & “The Cardinal Point”.
