Steel Mammoth - Machine of Constant Sorrow digital single

Ektro Records

This is a new one-track digital single by Finnish band Steel Mammoth. They have previously been known as messengers of heavy, punky, trashy and psychedelic metal, but this is something completely different. "Machine of Constant Sorrow" is electronic synth pop and presents SWOFHM (Synth Wave Of Finnish Heavy Metal). The cover picture features just Jussi Lehtisalo (Circle, Pharaoh Overlord) & Ville Pirinen (Black Audio, Seremonia, Valonyrkki etc.) but I'm not sure if Steel Mammoth is nowadays a duo project or what.

Ville's vocals and the somehow pathetic mode of the track still reminds me of old Steel Mammoth, but the electronic beats and synths are closer to some of the tracks by Rättö and Lehtisalo, for example. There is also some electric guitar in the mix (I think). Although they call this synthpop, the vibe is rather dark and weird, so don't expect this to be played at your local mainstream discotheque. Would be cool, though! We shall see if this is the permanent style of Steel Mammoth or just a one-off. What ever the case, I welcome it since this sounds very cool to me! Check it our yourself.
