Caveat: don’t judge a band’s entire output based on one “free” song.
This tune, “Everything I Am Not”, by West Yorkshire UK’s Down The Machine, sounds like a cross between industrial bands like Nine Inch Nails, grunge type outfits like Alice In Chains, and modern rock outfits like Audioslave.
The song has elements of industrial, post-goth, ambient, pop and rock all neatly incorporated.
It seems to be well produced, nicely mixed, and well balanced.
If this one song embodies everything they are – then the record, due out in 2014, will appeal to fans of grunge, alt rock, and industrial.
