||Hit and miss power metal.|
Machine Men are a Finnish power metal band that has graced the scene since 1999 with ‘Circus of Fools’ being the third full release from this quintet. The band kick-started their career as being an Iron Maiden covers band in their native homeland, before taking the brazen step of writing and recording their own material. The band name comes from one of Bruce Dickinson’s songs ‘Machine Men’ off the ‘Chemical Wedding’ opus. ‘Circus of Fools’ sit comfortably into the melodic power metal mould with a very strong Scandivinavian vibe to the music. Comparisons can be drawn to Iron Maiden and fellow countrymen Stratovarius, however this is evident on a few of the vocal passages. Vocalist, Anthony delivers clear, concise vocals that are very predictable, the rhytum section is solid with the right amount of flamboyance in the solos with plenty of hooks by making it an enjoyable aural experience. The standout track has to be the electrifying ‘Border of the real World’ kicking off with a blinding riff, plenty of aggressive vocal harmonies, solid bass and drumming to round things off nicely, epitomising just what a good power metal song is about. The remainder of the album has tracks that are not too memorable, but nothing that will blow your hat off so to speak! I would go as far as saying this is a very mediocre release, some of the songs appear to be lacking something and I get the impression this has all been done before. If Machine Men want to harvest a stronger reputation, then further consideration has to be made to improve the basis of the song writing and start getting a more of an individual sound. This band will appeal to the masses that prefer their music played in the vein of HammerFall, Dyecrest and Manitou.
