Upon their inception in 2013, Queensland quartet Opus of a Machine has been stripping away the macho pretence of modern metal. Their debut, “Simulacra” is expansive, energetic, expressive and emotive and packed to the gills with melodic prog goodness.
With influences such as Opeth, Tool, Radiohead, Devin Townsend, Karnivool, Metallica, Dead Letter Circus, TesseracT, Thirty Seconds to Mars, A Perfect Circle, 12 Foot Ninja, Oceansize, Rage Against the Machine, Voyager, Alter Bridge, Katatonia, and many others, Opus of a Machine is a limitless exploration of the vigour and intensity of metal fused with the subtleties of experimental rock.
Opus of a Machine’s debut “Simulacra” is out on November 16th. The album is available for pre-order on Bandcamp, and you can stream two of the extremely impressive tracks below.
