F0RMED S0MET1ME IN 2007 BY EX-B0D1ES DRAWN BACKWARDS (1993-98) MEMBERS.
DEBUT G1G AND 1ST EP RELEASE: SEPTEMBER 27, 2009.
CURRENTLY REC0RD1NG AND 0CCAS10NAL G1GG1NG.
Hailing from the bottom of the World, MACH1NES 0F
1NDETERM1NATE 0R1G1N come from a place that's not for the
faint hearted, they come from a place where it's snows on Christmas
Day (remember they're in the souther hemisphere), they come from
a place called VAN DIEMEN'S LAND, aka Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.
This new album from M.O.1.O leaves us again wanting more, whilst
on the long side for an EP the 5 tracks seem to flutter by in a heartless
massive stroke of down tuned guitar. M.O.1.O are masterful in
their delivery, both on record and live, they rarely put a foot wrong.
The duo is inspired by a combined love of the post-punk tribal percussion
of Killing Joke, the industrial infused metal of Godflesh, the
discordant guitar of Voivod, the lo fi energy of early 1980s US punk
and UK crust, the atmosphere and rhythms of Krautrock and the
slow stoner doom of early Black Sabbath. Vocally, the majority of
what's 'sung' is nonsensical. This in part is inspired by the 'instant
composition' technique employed by Damo Suzuki, but also has it's
basis in the recorded Dadaist poetry of Kurt Schwitters (amongst
M.O.1.O are Matt Warren and Aaron Metcalf, a formidable combination
that have been playing in various guises since 1993. These
guys just love making BIG sounds.
0.5 Assumption is a fitting follow up to their heavy hitting debut EP
0.5 Presumption. The road that lays ahead for M.O.1.O is long, wide
"Machines of Indeterminite Origin delite in a callous, unnerving mix of slow crusty doom. Repetitious trance inducing rhythms wallow in a huge wave of bludgeoning guitars while strange noises and fuzzy riffs march the listener into a world of nothingness and despair. Listen now"
