Resurfacing from both global and deeply personal unrest THE MACHINIST have returned and are set to leave their own indelible mark on 2022 with their idiosyncratic blend of extreme metal and hardcore on their new album, All Is Not Well, set for release via Prosthetic Records on July 8.

Resuming recording as the world tentatively took to recovery, THE MACHINIST teamed up with Daniel “DL” Laskiewicz (Bad Wolves, ex-The Acacia Strain) to produce, mix and master their sophomore effort, with help from Ice Nine Kills’ Ricky Armellino for vocal tracking. The time spent in isolation and witnessing the horrors of police brutality (explored on lead single, PIG), inflammatory politics and minority communities coming to terms with loss sits restlessly within the marrow of All Is Not Well’s lyrical themes. Sonically, Gomez’s penchant for converging both death metal brutality and intricate melodic metal and hardcore serves as a counterpart to All Is Not Well’s excoriating kickback at a world in crisis.

Standing tall in 2022, THE MACHINIST discards solipsistic tunnel vision for a wider scope of the personal and political. All Is Not Well refuses to resign in the face of the current climate's ongoing political and personal divisions, opting instead to shine a light and give a platform for the chance of hope.

THE MACHINIST is:
Amanda Gjelaj - vocals
Josh Gomez - guitar
Steve Ciorciari - drums

LYRICS

Hands up up don’t shoot
here they come, better run
From stillness to sirens
they will protect you
What a goddamn joke
And cold mistruth
Here we go, here we go
Another cop called, another man dead
Here we go here we go again
Another cop called, another man dead
We’re at the front lines staring down the barrel of war
We want freedom but they want power more
We’re at the front lines staring down the barrel of war
We want freedom but they want power more
Silence is violence
You gotta wanna be heard
Justice for the condemned
We’re gonna watch them burn
Marching towards the masses
guns and shields are drawn
Little piggies ready for war
let the slaughter begin
Let the slaughter begin
Breaking point in the city of death
Let the slaughter begin
No kings when there’s nothing left
We’ll leave your crown on your corpse on the ground
Here we go, here we go
Another cop called another man dead
Here we go here, we go again
Another cop called another man dead
We must fight the tyranny
stand up to the wicked and force them out
Only actions create change
Without a struggle the pigs will remain
Without change
The pigs will remain
A red stain on our history
