The sweat of their efforts would see vindication when the group came into contact with veteran music industry producer, James “Jimbo” Barton (Eric Clapton, KISS, Metallica). Barton was quick to take the reigns and use his mastery of mixing to bring Machine Empire’s first effort to form. Machine Empire has truly broken new ground with its Ep “Framework.” “Our mission is to reach every individual we can through our music,” states vocalist MT. “Whether we are on a big bill with well known bands or a small club gig, it’s an unspoken understanding between each of us in the band, to give everything we have inside of us, for the eyes and ears that are on us, the moment we take the stage.” Upon viewing a Machine Empire live show, it is evident each member has done their homework in live performance.
The band has already achieved notable performances with national & international acts such as Rock Icon, Slash (featuring Fergie of Black Eyed Peas & Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge), Smashing Pumpkins, Common, Kid Cudi, L.A. Guns as well as landing a slot on the 2010 Sunset Strip Music Festival. Machine Empire has also documented their musical journey through an unparalleled documentary titled, “From Drought to Flood” produced and directed by Mithun Gangopadhyay & Karen Bullis. “We’re so thankful to have had this chance to do the film with Mithun & Karen,” states drummer Anton Peterson. “A lot of people associate only good times and partying with playing in a rock band and this documentary shows not only how hard we work as a unit, but also how much sacrifice and focus it takes to be in a band from Los Angeles.” Machine Empire has begun their journey to bring their music to the global masses.
So the question has to be asked, what does the groundbreaking Ep “Framework”, do it yourself attitude, action packed live shows, and a documentary “From Drought to Flood” all add up to for Machine Empire? “There’s only one thing this all adds up to in our minds,” states lead guitarist Nikolazzi: “and that is 100% Pure American Hard Rock.” When You Come To See Us Live!
