These guys have definitely perfected their formula. What is that formula? Symphonic Industrial Death Metal. Even though the songs are maybe a little too similar, the album still ends up being pretty great.

Xenon is not as great as Empyrean, but it's a cool record regardless. Not many bands play symphonic metal like these guys do. Xenon doesn't manage to pull off the "journey" feel as well as Empyrean did, but production-wise it is a much improved record with guitars that actually have crunch to them and a sound that is bigger in scope. Unfortunately, the mix doesn't let the instruments and elements breathe and develop enough, and while the symphonic/industrial/death metal ball that is Xenon is wildly entertaining, it doesn't fulfill on the raw promise of Empyrean. Still, "Xenon", "Tartarus" and "Actaeon" are absolutely mesmeric tracks. Here's to hoping that Mechina's next album pushes the envelope even further without any setbacks.

This album was sort of a fun listen.. but the machine gun drums, the muted palm 'djenty' guitar playing, the auto-tuning, and the symphonics all sorta seemed gimmicky to me. At it's core, the metal itself was not that impressive.

Mechina is one of the most favorite metal bands for me and your new album Xenon is almost 50 minutes of great atmospheric music ;)
