Album Notes
Inventing not only a new way of making music, but a whole new way of listening to it"
~ Memphismayhem.com

On A Dead Machine is a band that has become really difficult to classify since their conception in early 2003. Built out of the ashes of the now defunct Drought and Piston Honda, the Memphis, TN band's roster includes Brian Link (vox), Adam Lucchesi (guitar), Hans Amelang (bass), and Ed Harris (drums). Through this foursome's combined efforts they have created a sound that is all their own. A sound that is heavy, but not really "metal;" while often exploring an "emo/indie" vibe through soaring melodies yet never really fitting that category either. They've been called everything from the new nu-metal to post-hardcore. While opinions may differ when it comes to the band's classification, most critics have all agreed that On A Dead Machine is an original group that has a knack for writing great music while handling themselves like true professionals.

OADM really took shape in mid-2003 when they released their first rough demo (featuring Habit and I've Seen Better Days), recorded in various apartments and bathrooms... yes, bathrooms. But regardless of the toiletries involved, this rough demo still landed the band a bit of fanfare and international exposure to webzines like ThePRP.com and UK's Audicratic.com. A few short months later the band moved into Young Ave. Sound studio for two days to record what would become The Morning After, the first single off of their upcoming self-titled full-length. Featuring songs like "The Morning After" and "Post-Modern Love," the 2003 single made a lot of positive noise amongst both the fans and critics. Consequently a slew of opportunities also began to arise, such as sharing the stage with national acts like Ill Nino, Flaw, 40 Below Summer, Saliva, and Chevelle.

A few months later in 2004, On A Dead Machine recorded their second studio release during another two-day trip into Young Ave. Sound. The Cancer single, meant to be a companion to its predecessor, once again proved the band's worth, with songs like "Cancer" and "A Million Helicopters and One Dollar" grabbing the attention of fans and landing rave reviews in a multitude of magazines and webzines from the US and abroad. Accompanying the many reviews and the 1,000 plus cd sales, a new spark in label interest has come to follow OADM. Though not currently committed to anything, the band hopes to settle soon should the right opportunity present itself. In the meantime, On A Dead Machine is staying true to form wit the release of its highly anticipated first full-length studio release to be followed by a regional tour. If nothing else can be said about the band, this much is true: On A Dead Machine is a unit that is dedicated to their love of music and will continue to do whatever it takes because of their belief in something bigger than themselves.

This Cd is one of the best all around Cd's I have ever heard!! The music flows well and the lyrics are very much in depth. Reminds me a lot of Ken Andrews and his style of song writing. If you like GOOD rock music I strongly recommend you buy this album now!!

Simply Amazing Band from my home town-gonna make it huge
This cd is amazing....this is a local band from where i am from...memphis tn....i am so glad that so many of you agree that they are original and steer away from the stock rock that is everywhere today...those of you that want them to come to your city...check out there myspace...they have a blog about if you want them to come to your city contact them...so read it...anyway back to oadm....they have such an amazing sound....i cannot wait till these guys are playing to crowds of 50000 to 100000 thousand people...and say i new them before they were anything...please everyone plug them every chance you get...get them out of memphis so the rest of the world can be shared this awesome music that speaks to the soul


I just want to upload OADM's CD in my brain and let it play there forever!!!! I can't get enough!!


i love this cd!!!!
this is the best band in the whole world!! whoever doesnt have this amazing cd should be ashamed of themselves!!
on a dead machine rocks my panties!!!

Break a face!

the guy below me is a moron...this CD owns!!!
This dude below me is an idiot!! OADM is not a "hardcore- metal" band. Does a record have to be full-on distortion and nothing but bar chords for it to be good? Go listen to some Disturbed and jerk yourself off!!!
