...and after I posted Farid Aslanov's last release, I thought I should also post the full-length demo of his other project, Mechanic Fist. When I talked to him a few months ago, he was against posting these songs, regarding them as low-quality material and promising to release a lot of better stuff in the future. But as of today, Farid is busy on his solo project, so I don't think we can expect any new releases from MF in the near future, and I'm posting this old demo instead. Actually, it isn't that bad... moreover, it isn't bad at all (for a demo made in a country where the industrial/gothic scene is almost completely absent). Some vocal work could be better, though, but overall it's very promising stuff. Check out the track "Last Sunset", it's a melodic ballad-type song which really stands out of the whole demo. Other good tracks include "Ice-Cold Hell", "Armageddon" and "Industrial Revolution". Don't know if you'd like the elements of Middle Eastern folk music on this demo, but for me it's what makes MF's music unique -they're probably the first Middle Eastern industrial/EBM band, and not just a clone of some famous Western project... Good start.
