Album Notes
When people who haven't heard of Mankind is Obsolete ask for a description of what they sound like, things get tricky. The super short description would be Coldwave, since their sound fits better with bands like 16 Volt, Luxt, and Christ Analogue than any other genre. Songs like "Parasite" and "Trapped Inside" spit, growl, and drag you through the cataclysmic heavy fallout world that this band thrives in.

But the second they're placed in that category, lead singer Natasha Cox will belt out soft lilting vocals on a song like "Troubled Dreams" or the band will pull back their heavy exterior for a more acoustic close and personal song like "Fading" and suddenly that label falls apart.

This multifaceted sound is readily apparent on Mankind is Obsolete's newest release entitled "Trapped Inside". Produced by the immensely talented Sylvia Massy and Jim Wood, "Trapped Inside" is the bands biggest accomplishment to date and also stands out as being their first fully collaborative cd.

In order to describe their sound it's important to know the people that create the aural firework display that's rises, falls, and explodes when you least expect it. Already mentioned, Natasha Cox is the incredibly versatile female front who co-founded the band with her longtime friend and sonic drummer Jon Siren. Together, their amorphic sound is joined by keyboardist Brian DiDomenico, guitarist Scott Landes, and bassist Joe D'Ambra.

Five individuals fused together to form one cohesive vision, MKIO has been on tour since September 2007 and will continue the tour through the end of 2008. Each unique and each bringing with them an energy level that allows them to tour relentlessly yet still blow the doors off of any venue regardless of its size or location. Drop this band off in front of 200 people in a cornfield, or a sold out show in Arizona, or a flooded basement club in Detroit and they will tear down the walls (or corn stalks) and play as if it's the last show they will ever get to play on Earth.

GREAT stuff
Saw them live at a con. GREAT energy, strong chemistry in the band. Impressive work. Then I got the albums, and was impressed by their studio-fu. They kept the energy and cleaned up the sound - best of both worlds. HIGHLY recommended album. Their others are great - this one's in the top-100 ever

Kenneth Bowman

MKIO is one of the best new and upcoming artists. They are so devoted into playing their hearts out for their fans. I recommend buying this album and seeing them live in concert.
