History

This Pennsylvania band is a hardcore/grindcore outfit of the most extreme kind. The band signed with Italy's The Spew and issued its MCD in September, 2004. The CD was mastered by Scott Hull of Mortician fame and featured six songs originally recorded in one session (four were off the band's only demo), a couple of samples and a cover version. The MCD was self-titled, but was once mentioned as The Xenophobic Hate Machine by the band. This was the band's first label release since it began playing out in early 2003. The band was part of a tour with Plague Bringer and others in the summer of 2004. The band also lost its drummer at this time.
Forging ahead, late 2004 brought the announcement that the band and Canada's Despised Icon would issue a split-CD on Relapse.

Reviews

BODIES IN THE GEARS OF THE APPARATUS - same - THE SPEW
Bodies In The Gears Of The Apparatus (phew) is a power violence act from a school of thought that favours sonic aggression above all else. The band likes to throw barbaric riffs non-stop, the singer screams and growls with all the zeal of a barbarian and the drummer acts out his rage to destroy everything in sight. The one problem with the band's bonding of Phobia, Cephalic Carnage, Convulse and the like is that several minutes of its 19-minute long MCD is taken up by intros, samples, interludes and a SOD cover version. Be that as it may, BITGOTA is an intense and punishing reward for the masochist in all of us. - Ali "The Metallian"
