At the beginning of your song "enemy within" you use a lot of sound effects with some very faint words said, me and a friend have been trying to pick words out such as "Listen to me" and "There isn't much time". But what is said? And what does it mean?
Rock on

It says:

“Listen to me…Listen to me, you must awake, you have to awake, there isn’t much time,
There isn’t much time left for me. This is my final offence.”

The idea wad inspired by the 1987 film ‘The Prince of Darkness’. A person was receiving a warning through his dreams and this is what’s happening on the album. The intro is a warning heard from the moment just before the Final Offence, sent to his own sub consciousness so that he will awake and prepare him self for what he has to confront in the future.

I think maybe we'll have some stuff for you in the next few weeks.
As I am sure most know by now, we have a some studio commitments of a 'Priest' type nature in 'The big. T's' studio, so I would expect footage of recordings, fret wanking, gratitous drum fills, a little bit of bass (well, we have to keep him happy ) drunken high-jinx, cow tipping, goat punching, cattle wrustlings, partial nudity, imaginative displays involving bodiily excretions, sleeping band members, pipe smoking and anchorman quotations. Plus a new feature when John.K, in an hour long presentation, will be lifting the lid on the secret to perfectly steamed vegetables and fluffy rice using just your microwave and a handy 'tips corner' on how to get the most out of your Star Wars box-set.

Released on DVD, I'd buy it. I've always wanted to see you all covered in feces eating microwaved fluffy rice and vegetables. Maybe that's just me though.

I am sure this will be no problem. We can usually be found by the bar after the set.

Hey, a question for Chris and Jamie.

What amps did you use recording The Empires Of The Worlds? The same ones you used live? I saw Chris used a Framus Cobra half-stack, but I didn't manage to see what Jamie used? Pardon me if this has been discussed previously though.

Also, I mentioned the Steve Smyth interview to you guys (Jamie and Chris) after the gig, and it turns out I was wrong; you weren't the FIRST band he mentioned when asked what bands he digs at the moment. Don't worry, he still digs your stuff

You can read the interview here if you want:

That's cool. Nevermore played here a few months back. That gig is easily in the top three for me, Jeff Loomis is my hero and Warrel Dane is one of the best metal vocalists ever. Too bad Biomechanical wasn't on the bill that night, otherwise the night would've been unbelievable.

Hey dude! Was cool to meet you last month. I really enjoyed the gig.

For the recordings of Empires, we actually used a Line 6 POD XT. But we did a lot of work with it. We worked on getting 2 different sounds, and blending them together which created this awesome tone. John then sent the signal through an AFEX Exciter (think I've spelt that right?) which made the sound absolutely huge.

After that we then got Andy Sneap on board, and he then worked his magic on top of all of that.

Hope you have a cool Christmas dude, and hope to see ya soon. Take it easy.

Chris.

Fill in the next little daydreaming text :




"Biomechanical goes to the movies

British-steel emperors Biomechanical are in the process of recording an EP consisting of movie scores covers. Interviewed backstage in Paris while they were getting ready for the imminent gig, John K [singer] agreed that "movie scores are definitely an influence on the way we see music", just before reaching for the hairspray. Chris [guitarist], who was meditating while doing the handstand on a small chair as he always does before a show ("it keeps me on my toes"), assured that the band "tried to be very respectful of the works [they] covered, keep the spirit of the piece but make the songs Biomechanical songs". The interview was interrupted by Jon, Matt and Jamie storming in the room throwing dirty socks, magazines and live ducks at their bandmates. John had time to reveal to us the tentative tracklisting for the yet unnamed EP just before being hit right in the face by a magazine cover featuring a lady wearing a particularly small latex outfit.

Not final tracklisting :

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.

Hey!

Just recieved 'Empires of the World' today from Amazon, and holy shit! I'm just pissed I didn't hear about you guys earlier! I gotta say, this is how I hope to be able to make music one day. So on to my question, type, thing to Jon. I too am a bassist (well, my main instrument), and I've hit somewhat of a rut. I've got theory down nicely, but can you recommend some playing exercises to practice, or instructional books or anything like that? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Alex

Hey Alex, glad you like the album

I'm afraid I might not be able to give you the help you're looking for - although I was classically trained on piano (and bassoon - rock!) I taught myself bass + guitar so I never followed any instructional books/videos/exercises - sorry mate!

The way I learnt then (and now) was to listen to lots of different styles of music, work out what the bassists were doing and then jam along. Back in the day it was mainly Steve Harris and Cliff Burton (how I got into metal) - now I tend to vary between genres so as to progress as a player (and to keep myself interested). Although this may not be considered the best way to learn, I find that I can pick up a vast amount from listening to other peoples playing, partly from a technical side but mostly from how they work with the music. My attitude has always been that however technically amazing, lightning fast and great at scales you become, if you can't 'fit' a band then what's the point?!
For example, at the moment I'm really into playing 70's funk music (i.e. Curtis Mayfield, Average White Band, Ian Dury and the Blockheads etc). Some of the bass parts aren't necessarily difficult or technically challenging, but the feel and positioning of the notes is second to none. Having come primarily from the school of Steve Harris (i.e. focusing on speed and consistancy), I find this style makes me think more about the importance of each single note and the feel/groove that goes with it. I find this has really helped to progress my playing, even for Bio. For the same reason I like switching between guys like Andy Fraser and Flea, Tom Araya and Geddy Lee, Danny Thompson and Greg Lake - it keeps me on my toes, interested, and focuses on different aspects of bass playing.

Anyway, to sum up (Jesus, what a lecture!) I would mainly advise that you listen to as wide a variety of players as possible, even if just for inspiration, and then see where that takes you.

I hope this helps you dude,
Jon

Chris.
Wow, a Pod Xt? I should have recogniced it, I have a Pod Xt myself! I would ask for some patches but I guess the Sneap-factor plays a major role in the overall sound of the record.

Do not underestimate the power of the Pod, Janne.

Thanks for you answer and Merry Christmas to you too Chris (and everyone else for that matter), it was nice meeting you all! You rocked!

Hello guys in Biomechanical.

I saw you for the first and second time finally on your tour with Exodus in the UK. First time at Manchester, second in London. You may remember me, I was the guy who turned up in London depsite just coming out of hospital the day before after pain relief treatment so I had to miss most of Exodus' set (seen about 5 times anyway in the space of three years so it wasn't a huge loss, and since I know the guys anyway it was alright as I still got to chill with them, cheers to Jamie for lending me a backstage pass, would've got one if the underworld didn't take me off of Exodus' guestlist due to them having too many friends on it, cunts) and I spent time with John at the merchandise stand as I wasn't well to say the least.

Well the question I ask is that the friend of mine who was with me at Manchester (Phil) is at uni doing a film/media course and he has to make a film to enter into this festival thing and it goes towards his final mark. His idea was to hopefully make a short documentary thing about you guys when you're on your tour with 3 Inches Of Blood, covering things such as band history, doing a few live shots of the band playing, influences and other interviews and such. He's got in the planning stage at the moment and we were wondering if you guys were willing to go ahead with it. We'd try not to get in your way too much and it'd just be a fan film as such with copies for yourselves made with no intention of making a profit or anything like that. If you're interested let me know, we reckon it'd be a laugh. We were planning on going to atleast three of the live shows to get it done.

Unfortunately, when it comes to that, there has to be either demand, or a promoter to take a chance on them. A band has to at least break even when a string of shows or a full-blown tour is done.
