Based in the Rotterdam area, Dutch power trio The Machine formed in late 2007, inspired by 90’s/00’s stoner rock and with a preference for lengthy instrumentals. Since then, they delivered five and a half full-lengths, toured Europe several times and destroyed numerous ear drums.
Through the years, The Machine gradually started moving away from the psych-jams of the early days towards a more grungy and aggressive approach. Their latest effort, 2015’s “Offblast!”, is a perfect example of this still ongoing transition.
Being averse to both trends and pretense, one can only guess where The Machine will be heading next. Try to catch them live somewhere along the way.
