Refreshing and real.


This is a breath of fresh air in a world full of the same crap. The music evokes the artistry of the eighties but at the same time there is a contemporary edge to every cut from beginning to end. Great musicianship and songs you end up singing to yourself all day without realizing it. The bass player kicks a*s. These guys have it going on!!! -Bear

In a word AWESOME!


This disc will probably end up being an under-rated treasure. the vocals from Zakk are amazing and further him along from his Savatage and Circle II Circle days. Some of the guitar work can be compared to Skid Row and Savatage. This disc is not trying to re-invent the wheel but they have added to the mythos of rock. It is a simple pleasure to listen to and has enough edge to please hard-rock fans. Should be in every collection.

About Machines of Grace

By taking a look at the résumés of its members, you can get a pretty darn good idea of what the Boston-based rock outfit, Machines of Grace sound like, as they've been linked in the past to such acts as Savatage, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Metal Church, and Circle II Circle. Comprised of members Zak Stevens (vocals), Matt Leaf (guitar), Chris Rapoza (bass), and Jeff Plate (drums), almost everything about Machines of Grace screams "late-'80s metal" -- picture a more concise/not as artsy-fartsy Queensrÿche, and you're not far off. The group's full-length/self-titled debut appeared in 2009 (and was the first album Stevens and Plate appeared on together since Savatage's 1998 release, The Wake of Magellan), and was mixed by Paul David Hager, which was rather surprising choice, as he has worked primarily with such pop-based acts as the Goo Goo Dolls, Avril Lavigne, and P!nk in the past. But still, the quartet managed to offer a melodic yet metallic sound, which will undoubtedly grab the attention of many a mullet-headed headbanger who fancies the aforementioned groups. ~ Greg Prato
