The God Machine - Scenes From The Second Storey download album
God Machine seemed to speak of the divine at work in the seeming madness of the world. One of the most powerful and moving rock/metal records ever done, period. Although you can still smell an influence of grunge (there was a hardly a way to get around in 1992), God Machine were onto something special here.
Scenes from the Second Storey is the debut album by The God Machine released in 1993 by Fiction Records, Polydor. It peaked at in the UK Album Chart.
The God Machine were also significantly heavier than that description might lead one to believe. Despite only being a trio, the band definitely liked to make noise and create suffocating walls of sound. They accomplished this by utilizing a thunderous bottom end that was smothered by reverb and feedback-filled riffs; as well as an upfront drum sound and a multitude of sound effects and samples. This wall of sound was augmented by a lot of quieter sections that really helped increase the depressing atmosphere of the songs and album as a whole. This is because the album is like an emotional rollercoaster – the two stages of grief: anger and depression. There’s absolutely no room for denial or bargaining and acceptance just increases the anger. To that end, Scenes jumps in with two of the more aggressive, yet conventional, songs on the album.

But the God Machine was even more experimental, using hypnotic riffs, trance-like drones, ethereal vocals, and a bevy of unconventional instruments to achieve a highly cinematic effect throughout their work. Opener "Dream Machine" (whose eerie intro dialog was coincidentally used on a Neurosis album that same year) and the mesmerizing "The Desert Song" are especially memorable, but the band stretches their wings even further on extended pieces like "Purity" and "Seven. In the end, Scenes From the Second Storey probably could have done without all of its CD-busting 80 minutes, but all things considered, there's plenty of value for their money here.

But when after a string of singles and EPs The God Machine released Scenes From The Second Storey 25 years ago, I was knocked flat. Part of me still lives with the afterechoes ringing in my head (and I don't mean my tinnitus). Though neither angry nor fiercely intense, I was a young man, 22 at the time, and nostalgia drives my feelings as much as anything else about the trio of Robin Proper-Sheppard on vocals and guitar, Jimmy Fernandez on bass and Ron Austin on drums.
