Young British progressive rockers MASCHINE release their second studio album, “Naturalis”, in 2016. The follow-up to the band’s debut “Rubidium”, this record is the first to feature drummer James Stewart (Vader) & keyboardist/vocalist Marie-Eve de Gaultier, and offers six tracks fit into a loose concept. Guitarist/vocalist Luke Machin explains: “This is basically about natural events. My interest really began with the Japanese tsunami in 2011. Once I had the idea for the album fixed in my head, the whole thing just snowballed. But what I didn't want this to be was a record about natural disasters. What I wanted to emphasise was that there is light at the end of the tunnel. There is hope for mankind.” Mastered by TesseracT’s Acle Kahney, musically MASCHINE perfectly blend classic influences ranging from Dream Theater over to Pink Floyd with a modern, occasionally pretty heavy vibe, and addictive organic flow especially due to Machin and de Gaultier’s vocal interplay. Machin comments: “The album reflects much more of what we are about. The songs on the first album were good, but written over a period of four or five years. As a result, I feel that stylistically we were a little all over the place. Sure, we were obviously a progressive band, but beyond that you couldn't put a finger on exactly what type of music we were playing. Now, I feel we have found a consistent sound and style, and have really moved forward.” The special edition digipak CD includes two live bonus tracks!
