"Sonically the music has changed slightly, delivering high energy beats yet keep
The electronic frontier offers one of the largest expanses of untapped music today, and it is attracting settlers. These are people brought into the fold through many and varied avenues, be it the light roads of ambient or the rough-hewn trails laid by aggressive industrial. At some point along the way Luke Smith found himself overlooking this electronic landscape and realized he had found a home. He found in himself the need to create, and to this end he created Gravemachine.

Last year with Gravemachine’s first EP release of “Slut” they put down the foundation of what they would produce. The title track “Slut” is filled with throaty beats intertwined with sultry sonics to produce a sound that is somehow franticly chill. Industrial overtones abound, with a ‘through the looking glass’ ambient sound weaving in and out through it all.

As Luke Smith put it, “I invent these characters to mimic basic human emotions such as love, lust, sadness, joy, frustration, and interaction.” With the aural and visual glimpses revealed of the upcoming album “Mechanical Angels” it certainly gives this impression. Graphically it uses washed out imagery of a nearly iconic ‘50’s style toy robot bringing to mind an almost childlike view of the world. From the first two songs “Machine Anthem” and “A Tale of two Robots” it is easy to see where the foundation of “Slut” led him. Sonically the music has changed slightly, delivering high energy beats yet keeping it reigned in with ambient undertones. The soundscape is much cleaner on these tracks, lacking the darker undertones of “Slut”. Gravemachine has formed clear concepts for the music they wish to produce, and they are adeptly laying down tracks.

"Interesting combination of dark and depressive Electro/Industrial music"
This is a new solo effort leaded by Lucas Smith presenting with this 8 tracks a first audio sign of life. He offers musically a quite interesting combination of dark and depressive Electro/Industrial music filled with dozens of voice samples, but also some organic sounds like a piano as well. Rather a EPCD than a full-length release, this output features four different versions of the track “Slut”, originally a sample-driven and rather slow track. To fill in some diversity there are also a Club Mix and an Ambient Dance Mix available, both with typically ingredients like some modern sounding synth bass lines, solid hi-hat work – but in all nothing that would surprise. One foreign remix work is also available created by a band called WHITEOUT – but somehow it can’t offer or add anything surprising. I must admit that the favorites are rather placed in the four extra tracks, especially on the both “Retrospect” (fine worked out rhythm patterns...) and “Left Behind” (nice synth layer sounds...). It should be mentioned that the vocals could really need some improvement, some more courage for the so-called “human factor” instead of let them sounding unnatural wouldn’t be wrong. It is a solid and self-produced first release, quite decent, but nothing outstanding.
