Bury The Machines
Bury The Machines


“To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.” – Friedrich Nietzsche 

Bury The Machines releases its self-titled full length album at www.burythemachines.com as a digital download.

Bury The Machines, brainchild of John Bomher (Yakuza, Iklatus), combines elements of doom, thrash and psychedelia to navigate a dark and cinematic soundscape. The music is a reckoning with neurosis, love and loss; to look upon our human conditioning and transmute pain into art.

Through the band, Bomher attempts to cope with the inevitable burden of humanity; the depression, loss, and brain-mangling hardship that is the price of consciousness. It is a stunted wail of hope and providence mutated from tragedy and suffering, the promise to the tortured souls and the outcasts that can no longer trudge the path toward redemption alongside us. Following the album’s digital release, a limited edition LP will follow later in the year. Check website for upcoming band performances.




About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
