CD Review: Ape Machine-Mangled by the Machine(Releases May 14th, 2013)Ripple Music




From Band's Bio:

A true four-piece, Portland, Oregon’s APE MACHINE has been called “a rock and roll band with a finger on the pulse of the 70’s and their asses firmly in the present” and “real heavy-psych for the iPhone generation” that delivers “true guts and glory rock and roll.” Combining psychedelic, classic and progressive rock with arena-worthy metal, bluesy stoner-rock and catchy riffs in odd signatures.

Judging by their pictures available to the press and those online this band does not care much about image as they clearly care about making some great music.
Refreshing to see as there are so many bands that care about their image more than the quailty of the music that they represent and have to play almost nightly, it might as well be something that you actually like.

Songs like "Gun You Down" and "Angry Man" have some great classic feel to them with some new age of Rock in there as well.
Quickly likable are Ape Machine and also from one of my favorite places in the U.S. as well have fond memories of Portland of me and my sister visiting our Grandparents there.
The album was recorded as one long continuous track in one take.(according to their press release)

So there ends this review but in closing this will easily be one of my favorites of 2013, without a doubt.

Thank you for reading this 
Sincerely
