(Photo by Christos Sarris) Greece’s synth punk act Mechanimal (Giannis Papaioanou, Freddie Faulkenberry) unveil the first taste from their forthcoming album, “Crux” (out January 27 via Inner Ear), with the video single “Stolen Flesh”. The video for the track was shot by Christos Karalias.
“Stolen Flesh” follows the single “Holy Punk” which was a teaser for what’s to come.
Mechanimal say about the song: “”Stolen Flesh” is dedicated to the loving memory of a dear friend we lost. It’s about how it feels when you lose a dear person: all the love unveils in its magnitude in a very painful procedure. But we remain here to keep this love and all memories alive by beautifying every little crack and detail in our everyday life.”
The “Crux” recording sessions began in January 2019 and ended in August at the band’s own studio. This album hosts several guest musicians: Jimmy Polioudis (guitars on “Sharon” and “Easy Dead”), Henrik Meierkord (cello on “Scavengers” and “La Poverina Delle Ossa”), Vasiliki Mazaraki (violin on “Scavengers” and “La Poverina Delle Ossa”) and George Theofanidis (guitars in “Red Mirror”).
