Melancholy Machines - Hope in Sadness | Posted May 22, 2021
What You Need To Know
Melancholy Machines is the metal band Death Therapy's third full-length album. It is one of the most personal records that lead singer and writer Jason Wisdom has ever created. The album, distributed through Tooth and Nail Records, though independently created, has two instrumental songs, as well as a cover of contemporary artist Andrew Peterson's "The Silence of God."

What It Sounds Like
At its core, Melancholy Machines is groovy, industrial music. It has a variety of unique sounds, ranging from chanting and gang vocals to rarely-used instruments, like saxophone and techno-beats. On the record, Jason does more singing than screaming than previous efforts. This gives the listener an opportunity to experience a more melodic side of his vocals.  

Spiritual Highlights
From start to finish, the album's lyrical content is introspective and hopeful. It's apparent in the album opener, "Familiar Shadows": "Reach out/take my hand/and remember you are not alone." This line is a cry that echoes God's love for us. "Pls Snd Hlp" is a cry for help: "I don't want to stay the way I am.../Please send help." The album, from front to back, deals with the difficult struggles of life through a biblical foundation of hope.

Best Song
Some songs, such as "Tension" and the title track, embrace funky sounds more than others. Still, some songs, such as "Pls Snd Hlp" and "Bullet Holes," have more aggressive features. "Pls Snd Help" is definitely the album standout. With its heavy elements, Melancholy Machines meets fan expectations, while improving on Death Therapy's groovy infusion of heavy music. 

For Fans Of
NYVES, Starset

Bottom Line
Melancholy Machines is Death Therapy at its true core. Since the first two records were leaning more to metalcore, fans may have subverted expectations with this one. However, Melancholy Machines is far more unique in its own right. The groovy, electronic elements combine with the bass, drums, and vocals to form an eccentric, yet distinct album.
