      A highly underrated album. I would guess the project was influenced more by Godflesh than Pitch Shifter. The tracks are very slow and heavy. I would consider this to be categorized more as Doom Industrial than Industrial Metal. Some tracks are almost melodic and danceable. I definitely recommend picking up this album!

        This is a groundbreaking and classic 'industrial metal' album. Although being clearly influenced by Pitch Shifter, The Machine is heavier, colder and more evil (simply amazing lyrics!). I can't believe it was recorded in 1992, 16 years ago, it still sounds fresh, production is flawless and hasn't dated at all (unlike Pitch Shifter, even though I love them too). The main thing here is cold monotonous vocals, truly 'industrial' claustrophobic atmosphere, ultra-heavy guitars and meaty drumming, all combined with bleak visions of reality and pointlessness of modern human life in lyrics. In other words, a total classic, and if you only have to have one 'industrial metal' album, let The Machine be it. You won't regret it.
