Whoever said that you can’t make hard rock/metal sound full with only two members have obviously never heard Northern NSW metal duo Beast Machine.
Still in their relative infancy, Beast Machine have already embarked on a successful American tour as well as spread their name far and wide across their home country.
With a dynamic live performance and sound that evokes the sensibilities of Kyuss with the neck-breaking intensity of Slayer and the ethos of High On Fire, Beast Machine are a two-man battlefield, waging war on their ears and souls of a growing legion of fans.
Capitalising on momentum slowed during the recent pandemic, Beast Machine are eyeing off tours up and down the Australian coastline before the end of 2021, with their latest LP taking shape with each passing breath.
Lead single “Better” will be released on May 5 with vocalist/guitarist Reg Barber explaining “the song is about not giving a fuck when someone is trying to get at you – you can do your best but we know who you are and what you are. The song could apply to many people you come across but we wrote it about someone specific, someone we know who was close to the band. The more they tried to get us down, the more drive we would have to make music, that’s where to line ‘break my bones and make it hurt, but I’m feeling better’ comes from.”
Beast Machine have released a single teaser ahead of the official unveiling, which can be viewed below:
