Portrait of Before The Machine

Assembled in 2008, Before The Machine combines elements of Rock,Metal, and Electronica to showcase their ability to break away from the simplicity found in today's music. Fronted by ex-Alabama Thunderpussy's main man Johnny Throckmorton, the vocals project power, range, and conviction in his lyrical storytelling, leaving the listener anxious for a sequel. The guitar work, brought by Mike Lester and James Alexander, are reminiscent of earlier eras of Rock where dueling harmonies and tasteful solos left footprints for other musicans to follow while sleek, tasteful bass lines brought by Seth Nicholls, fills the low end voids and completes this string section ever so perfectly. Kevin O' Brien, the driving force behind this well oiled machine, steam-rolls through complex drum parts piecing this puzzle together.
