Introducing Mechanism: Melodic Metal from the Pacific Northwest
Heavy. Dark. Intense. Three words that have been used to describe the band and their music. Three more would be: Rhythmic. Precise. Energetic. Anyone who has witnessed one of their numerous live outings, whether it be playing one of their own gigs or as the direct support for a National touring act, can attest to the very raw and almost animalistic energy Mechanism brings to each performance, which is a direct result of the near constant practice of the individuals and the professional stance they take regarding their craft.
Mechanism has been fortunate enough, through hard work and goodwill, to share the stage as direct support with world
class national acts including: DOPE, Metal Church, Devin Townsend, John 5, Ghost Ship Octavius, Sanctuary, Motograter, Davey Suiide,, Dokken, Lynch Mob, Brazilian metal gods Mindflow, Y&T, Lizzy Borden, Michael Schenker and many more. Mechanism is also a very active part of the amazing music community in the greater Seattle area and are proud to have shared the stage with nearly every one of the top local acts in a similar genre.
