Started in 2013 by Evan Mitchell (Singer, Song Writer, Programmer) Machines on Blast 's growth began shortly with the additions of recording/live guitarist Warren Adams in 2014 and live drummer Chris Marshall. This line-up released their well received self-titled debut EP “ Machines On Blast ”. Alongside the EP, Machines on Blast went on to appear in the compilations “ Digital Recovery 10.4 ” and “ Elektro Villain: Volume 002 ”.
Machines on Blast supported their self-titled EP with a brand new remix album featuring independent artists including Chrome Corpse, Particle Son, Man Woman Machine , and FlammPunkt. Machines on Blast then recruited bass player Scott Vanhorn for the live line-up, and went on to perform alongside The Dreaming (Former Stabbing Westward), My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, Genitorturers, Death Valley High , and Fractured Fairytales .
In 2015 that Machines on Blast began writing for their next full length production, Tin Man Empire , which released in 2016. The album was well received with Hooded Stranger ( www.hoodedstranger.com ) stating Machines on Blast is, “...explosive and detonate their sound,” and Brutal Resonance (www.brutalresonance.com) praising the album as, “angry, loud, and brings back a 90s industrial sound.”
In late 2017, Machines on Blast welcomed guitarist Andrew Howington to the line up for both live and studio duties and announced their music is to be featured in Australian horror film ' Bite Club ' which was released in 2018.
Amidst the global shutdown due to COVID-19 , Machines on Blast completed writing and producing their album Black Market Happiness which was released in October of 2020. This album was very well received and was noted to have added more depth and stylistic offerings to their songwriting while still solidifying their Industrial Metal sound.
