Introducing Mechanism: Melodic Hard Rock from the Pacific Northwest.

Kurt Vonnegut once said “I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see
from the center” and it seems Pacific Northwest powerhouse band Mechanism takes the sentiment to heart. In the ongoing pursuit of creating exceptional music, the five members of Mechanism: Ryan Renfield (lead vocals/lead guitar), Tony DeLisio (lead & rhythm guitar), Bobby D’Angelo (bass), Daryl Williams (drums) and Manny Rojas (keys) strive with each deliberate move to break new ground in both the writing/arranging of their songs and in their live performances on the stage.

Heavy. Dark. Intense. Three words that have been used to describe the band and their music. Three more would be: Rhythmic. Precise. Energetic. Anyone who has witnessed one of their numerous live outings, whether it be playing one of their own gigs or as the direct support for a National touring act,
can attest to the very raw and almost animalistic energy Mechanism brings to each performance, which is a direct result of the near constant practice of
the individuals and the professional stance they take regarding their craft.

Since their inception in 2007, Mechanism has been fortunate enough, through hard work and goodwill, to share the stage as direct support with world
class national acts including: Sanctuary, Where Angels Suffer, Dokken, Lynch Mob, Brazilian metal gods Mindflow, Lizzy Borden, The Devin Townsend
Project and Michael Schenker. Mechanism is also a very active part of the wonderful music community in the greater Seattle area and are proud to have
shared the stage with nearly every one of the top local acts in a similar genre.

Some of Mechanism’s accomplishments:

*KISW 99.9FM’s band of the week three times
*Featured and interviewed on KGRG FM, METAL MONTHLY, NWCZ RADIO and many more
*Consistent airplay on Bay Area station KCRH 89.9fm
*2012 Metal Monthly Hall Of Fame entrance
*Listed in the top 12 bands of 2012 by Metal Monthly
*Named 2011 BAND OF THE YEAR by the listeners and hosts of Chaos: A Show for the Masses
*Performed at the SWC memorial in Anchorage Alaska
*Performed at the world famous Hempfest several times
*Headlined Kane Fest in Arlington WA
*Headlined Chaos Fest 2 years in a row

Mechanism is very excited about the upcoming release of their full length album January 12th 2013 and feels its by far their best offering yet. “The initial EP was great for what it was”, says guitarist Tony DeLisio, “but this new album is a much better representation of what the band is all about. We finally have the songs and the right lineup to make the true spirit of Mechanism a reality”.

Having laid a solid foundation within both the local music and fan communities throughout the greater Seattle area, Mechanism has positioned themselves
as serious contenders for world wide exposure. The band is currently expanding their show schedule and fan base in Washington State, Oregon, California,
Idaho and British Columbia as well as entertaining any opportunity that comes their way. Mechanism’s unwavering dedication, steady consistency and
professionalism has resulted in being well known for being a very friendly hard working band and are much sought after for high profile shows and direct
support for touring national acts.

Coming into 2014 Mechanism is well on their way to becoming one of the top metal bands in the Northwest so stay tuned. Shit’s about to get crazy!
