My album of the year so far.

Gorgeous, dark, melodic songs and grrrreat guitars.

Deep, dark and pretty heavy. They seem to be described as “progressive metal” which kind of suggests Dream Theatre territory. They are anything but....

Polish prog is bloody excellent.

Boy can this guy write some hooks and play a mean guitar.

Everything I’ve played of his is just so accessible from 1st listen - not really the idea of prog, in fact it’s not really prog as we know it - melodic guitar rock with some heavier undertones.

I'm listening to this for the first time, and when the title track came on I honestly thought they were going to start playing "Jailhouse Rock".

Machines Dream is a Canadian band, and this track is taken from their 2nd album, Black Science which was released in 2017. I haven’t played it enough to really pick up on it myself but the theme of the albums apparently is the early signs and rise of fascism.

On 2nd play through the album this track stood out for me.

It reminded me of Wish You Were Here era Floyd.....

Ok, I’m giving this a play.....

I’m not really a fan of TD but having spent a large chunk of a focused spreadsheet working day or 2 with them (slightly) in the background last year, I started to see (some of) their attraction.

It’s a bit of a struggle to get past my long-term dislike of the electronic sound which stems back to 80s shite from the likes of Donna Summer, Imagination, Depeche Mode and the like.

No comparison to 80s electronica but I take your point.

I don't know what TD albums you have tried but try Force Majeure or Stratosfear.

I adore them!!
