One Machine biography
One Machine is the brainchild of critically acclaimed guitarist/songwriter Steve Smyth (Nevermore, Forbidden, Testament, Dragonlord, Vicious Rumors).
One Machine is an international metal band with classic and modern influences, featuring members carefully selected by Smyth: Jamie Hunt (Biomechanical) sharing guitar duties, augmented heavily by a powerhouse rhythm section with Stefano Selvatico (Savage Messiah) on bass guitar and Matt “Spike” Cherry (Biomechanical, Matt Mitchell and The Coldhearts) on drums, and welcoming new vocalist Ronny Munroe (Metal Church/Trans Siberian Orchestra) to its ranks!
The band’s debut album, The Distortion Of Lies And The Overdriven Truth was released world-wide in February 2014 through Scarlet Records/eOne to great critical acclaim, and the band immediately hit the road, winning several high profile support slots in the UK and abroad with such luminaries and newcomers alike, as Nile, Vicious Rumors, Onslaught, Artillery, The Agonist, as well as headlining shows of their own.
The band also made several festival appearances, sharing the stage alongside bands such as Dani Filth’s Devilment, Pretty Maids, Illdisposed, M:Pire Of Evil, and others, all the while continuing to win over fans and rack up high-rating raving reviews.
One Machine entered the studio in early February to record their follow-up album, The Final Cull, released September 18th, 2015 via Scarlet Records/eOne to great critical acclaim and fan reception, and once again, the band hit the road to tour in support of the critically acclaimed The Final Cull throughout 2015-2018, across Europe, the UK, and Ireland, as a headliner and main support act on many shows and tours. Highlights included main support to Overkill and Vader on Killfest 2016, Korpiklaani, Tyr, Evergrey, Operation:Mindcrime, Evile, Raven, combined with appearances at many metal festivals, including the prestigious Bloodstock Open Air, Mammothfest, Amplified Festival, Attitude Fest, Thrashersaurus Festival, amongst many others.
With the recent addition of ex Metal Church/Trans Siberian Orchestran vocalist to its ranks, the band has now completed an EP, tentatively titled Let The Culling Begin, due for release in early 2021, with touring follow!
