MAN.MACHINE.INDUSTRY IN THE STUDIO
MMI have recently started working on their fourth album.
The album will future the new members Jim Bergman on guitar and Thomas Manell on drums.
Jim will also co-write some songs with J.B for the album and this is the first time ever J.B let someone else in on the writing for MMI.
MORE MELODIC YET HEAVIER
Their latest album “White Trash Devil In a Jesus Christ Pose” (GMR Music 2010) got some pretty good reviews and the band will do all they can to follow up with a great album. So far four new songs are in progress and it seems heavier and at the same time more melodic than before.

The theme of the album will take on the classic theme of “the end of the world” inspired by the documentary “Aftermath: Population Zero”.
“I have always wanted to make an album on the End of the world theme. I grew up listening to much of the Bay Area Thrash metal style during the 80s to bands such as Testament, Megadeth and Nuclear Assault and they often had songs on that theme way back then and today the issue is even more important than ever.”
The album will be released fall 2011 and is to be titled:
LEAN BACK… RELAX… AND WATCH THE WORLD BURN!
J.B says this on how the title came up:
“I read an interview with Gary Holt of Exodus when they asked him what he thought about the green house effect and the pollution of the world. He said something in the style of; – Well, what can we do? Its already too late if you ask me so why don’t just “lean back and watch the world burn”. I had already been thinking about the theme and his words just came at a perfect time.”
