Machine Men - Call It Quits


Finnish heavy metal band Machine Men have officially broken up after thirteen years.

Here's the band's farewell message: "Things have been quiet for the past 2 years. During this time we have gone through many changes and we have been thinking about the future of the band. Unfortunately we feel that the challenges as a band would be too hard to overcome. After long conversations we have decided that the story of Machine Men ends here. It's better to end what we started together without bitterness than to make a new album we couldn't put our hearts and souls into. We wouldn't be the five guys that stuck together no matter what. We would be something else, not Machine Men.

This band has been the centre of our lives for over a decade. During these years we have experienced great and unforgettable moments on the road (and off). The thanks goes to all the people who have supported us and have come to see our gigs. It hasn't been an easy ride but yet we have taken all the shit with our heads held high. After all we are from Suolahti for fuck's sake! Even though it's sad, we end this with smiles on our faces and with loads of good memories to share over a pint.

The story of the band ends here but we'll continue to make music as individuals. We are grateful to so many people but most of all we would like to thank our fans - without you we would have been nothing!"

Well...crap. All I can say is that, with the luck we've been having, at least none of them died.

So many bands breaking up. Well let's not forget how many bands have supposedly "broken up" only to reform later on.

That's a shame, Circus of Fools is an absolutely awesome album.
