Jazkamer: Metal Music Machine 2
Pica026. CD. Released November 2010. Audio sample.
"Metal Music Machine 2" is the sequel to Jazkamer's 2006 metal album "Metal Music Machine". It is recorded with the same line-up, in the same studio, and continues the paths laid out by the first album; Jazkamer exploring the deep dark fjords of metal. From 80's German thrash to überslow doom and 70's classic heavy metal; "Metal Music Machine 2" is a varied platter of Metal Mania.
The original album was something of a surprise hit for the band, which lead to creating a live MMM-big band. The live incarnation swayed more in the direction of noise meltdown, but for "Metal Music Machine 2" Jazkamer takes a step back to pure metal; the album is perhaps more metal than the first and absolutely no noise or electronic elements can be heard.
Jazkamer would like to dedicate "Metal Music Machine 2" to the memory of Ronnie James Dio; the greatest voice of heavy metal who sadly passed away this year. As a sign of respect "Metal Music Machine 2" is a completely instrumental album with no vokills.
