We’ve been getting a whole range of new reviews for our latest release Disrepair Part Two – The Pleasure Fled”, so I thought I’d share a few with you all. Here’s just a portion of what is being said. I guess the underlying theme to most of the reviews is the emphasis on our originality and uniqueness, which is fine by me.
“The truth is that the sound of Mechanical Organic continues, even in this new form, to stand to the upper levels of uniqueness.” Metal Perspective
“It's so beautiful, complex and diverse and it has such a variety of tunes and themes that time flows without realizing... you just feel compelled to push the play button again.” Behind The Veil
“For anyone who wants "something different" they may just find it here in this Progressive, almost Avantgarde metal release. “ Metal Storm
“The Pleasure Fled is indeed a very nice track, and even though it lasts a good 17 minutes and 18 seconds, it leaves you wanting for more! Which is always a clear-cut sight of quality to me! “ Concrete Web

I'm proud to announce the release of Mechanical Organic's third album/EP "Disrepair Part Two – The Pleasure Fled" containing the monstrous 17 minute epic “Into the Fangs of Lunacy”. This one track contains some of our most unique writing and we're very proud of the musical content, vocal themes and lyrics. During the writing process we came to the realization that we have the ability to release music in whatever format, length and quantity we like. We have decided to concentrate on releasing longer epic style songs rather than your more traditional style album containing ten tracks. "Disrepair Part Two – The Pleasure Fled" is the beginning of this new found philosophy and we hope to release more music in this format within the year of 2009 and beyond. We hope to further the conceptual range of the political/conspiratorial “Disrepair” series with many more such releases.
Our sound on this release is a strange musical blend of Heavy, Electronic, Ambient, Progressive, Political and Conspiratorial elements.
And just to give you a little insight into the current line up –
Eddie Katz – Lead Vocals, Backing Harmonies, Programming and Keyboards – (Ex – Vauxdvihl, Ex – Where Echoes End, Pathway to Perception)
Connie D – Heavy and lead Guitar – (Spasticator)
Evan Harris – Bass, Fretless Bass, Chapman and NS Stick (Ex – Taramis, Eyefear, Black Majesty, Spasticator)
If you have a free minute you can check out the radio edit of the track at our Myspace page www.myspace.com/mechanicalorganic or visit the home of Mechanical Organic at www.mechanicalorganic.com for all the latest news and info.

The mixing process for the new Mechanical Organic release “Into the Fangs of Lunacy” is finally fully compete. Mastering has been books so we should have the finished product in a couple of weeks. I’m so pleased with the way the recording sounds. I really think this is our best effort so far and I can’t wait for you all to hear it. I’m really proud of this release and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the two contributing musicians who made this recording what it is today. Firstly Conrad, this man has personally shaped the Mechanical Organic sound by delivered one of his most melodic efforts yet. Conrad knows exactly what my music needs in terms of heavy and melodic guitar work, and I’m so glad he’s back. He’s meticulous, and really takes the time to develop a unique approach to each individual track, and this song is no exception. His guitar work is nothing short of perfection, it’s heavy and melodic and it fits the Mech Org sound like a glove.
And secondly, Evan, what can I say, I’ve know Evan for a long time and I’ve been a big fan of his playing since the old Taramis days. At one stage during the recording process Conrad suggested we give Evan a call to see if he would be interested in playing on this track. He was, and he did, and the results are fantastic. He is a master of his chose instruments which include bass, fretless bass and Chapman and NS stick. His style is instantly recognisable and I love his musical approach and ideas.
These two people are so musically capable that my song writing really only allows them to give us a glimpse of their musical talents. I’m honoured to have them on board for this recording and hopefully many more to come in the future.

Now on to Mech Org and the music that is being written. Ok firstly I’d like to mention that Conrad is back and working on a new tune I wrote called “Into the Fangs of Lunacy” which is a 17 minute monster examining the online truth movement and the infiltration of carnival barkers who spread disinformation. Conrad is working on the guitar parts and bass lines as I type this news update. The song will be released as a kind of mini album and will be titled “The Pleasure Fled”. In fact, I’ve decided to write much larger more expansive tunes and release them digitally as they are completed. Using this method we hope to release a steady stream up music rather than wait two or three years for a full length album. Being a completely independent band/artist we are able to go with the flow and do whatever we want. And at the moment releasing long, expansive multilayered music is where we’re at. Artwork for the new album is already complete, in fact the artwork for the next two releases is complete.
While Conrad has been working on the guitar parts for the new album I’ve been toiling away at another song that clocks in at around 25 minutes. This song is nearing completion with all vocal melodies, lyrics and music being recoded and polished in the studio at the moment. I have a working title but I’m keeping it under my hat for the time being.
I’m also working on digital distribution for Mechanical Organic through itunes, amazon, napster, rhapsody, e-music and host of others.
So I’m please to say that things are rolling along nicely at camp Mech Org. So keep an eye out for new music from Mechanical Organic in the very near future.
More news soon.
