Metal from China!

Metal quintet THE MACHINERY OF OTHER SKELETONS are proud to announce the release of their EP, entitled Beyond The Circular. Recorded and engineered entirely in-house by the band themselves, the record is not only a statement of their vision and musicianship but also one about the virtues of hard work, determination, and a firm belief in the DIY ethos.

Rooted in a compelling technical groove metal sound with aspects of black metal, death metal and metalcore, the five dynamic songs feature tightly orchestrated guitar work and complex rhythmic patterns along with a powerful, wide-ranged vocal delivery. The band, based in Shanghai, comprises four expats along with Shanghainese metal stalwart Maomao on guitar. Already standing out in Shanghai’s metal scene, TMOOS’s second-ever show saw them opening for American metal heavyweights THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER.

The album has so far been well received. Shanghai-based musician and music writer Zack Smith said, “I am quite impressed by the guitars, both rhythm and lead, on Beyond The Circular. The main licks are quite fresh and almost funky, in their own way. I like the tone as well, bright and sharp like a freshly polished knife. The solos fill up their requisite space with energy and provide a melodic respite from the surrounding shrapnel, like an overgrown copse of trees in a firefight…Vocalist Ivan Belcic is equally impressive throughout.” The song “Enervate” was also featured on Open Metalcast’s celebratory 100th episode.

The EP will receive regular airplay on Valhalla Radio, and reviews on Metal Temple, The Doughnut and Heavy Metal Artwork are forthcoming. Shows are planned for August through the rest of the year in Shanghai as well as in Greater China.
