"Threat Machine" - released November 2011

Press Release For "Threat Machine"

In this self-titled debut release, Threat Machine brilliantly combines twisted and fractured sounds with mangled synth melodies that convey a gratifyingly gritty appeal.

The one-man writing and production talent behind Threat Machine is George Spanos, who hails from London, Ontario, Canada. He describes the inspiration for the album: “I wanted to take sonic elements from heavy, noise-based music and combine them with synths and forward-thinking melodies to blur the lines and produce unexpected results.” Indeed, this release seamlessly fuses elements from industrial music to catchy new wave into something refreshingly new.

The two lead tracks (The Rain, Too Late Now) combine hard-edged rhythms with intense synth lines to form a unique sonic character. Frenetic vocals are fused with stripped-down sonic arrangements in a number of instantly infectious tracks (Straitjacket Psycho, Oh Yeah). A number of dark ambient tracks (One Moment, Rush) are sandwiched between up-tempo pieces dealing with everything from the human psyche to the rawness of emotion (Alter Ego, Never Again). This is an album that is not to be missed.

“Threat Machine” is independently released and is available in CD format and as a download from the Threat Machine store: The album is also available through iTunes, Amazon, and eMusic.

1. The Rain
2. Too Late Now
3. Straitjacket Psycho
4. Time
5. Modern Song

Based out of London, Ontario, Canada, Threat Machine is the alter ego of independent writer and producer George Spanos.

Formed in 2010, Threat Machine was started as a creative outlet by George Spanos to express the desire to fuse sonic elements from a variety of genres. Though the music is hard to typify, it is influenced by industrial, synthpunk, experimental, noise, and electronic styles.

What started out as a few early experimental tracks quickly paved the way for a full length album. “Threat Machine” was released in November 2011 as an 11 track debut. A number of the early tracks from the initial writing sessions were re-invented and a handful of new material was conceived for the debut.

Perhaps the best way to describe the sonic assault of Threat Machine’s music is to state the obvious: twisted and fractured sounds are combined with gritty and frenetic vocals that will leave the listener aurally satisfied.

With the firm belief that true musical artists should be able to express every facet of their creativity, many of the tracks on Threat Machine’s debut album blur the lines of what is expected. From up-tempo energy-laden pieces to stripped down filmic tracks, Threat Machine defies the usual “electronic” stereotype. Threat Machine’s aural assault is aimed at the pleasure center between the ears for an undeniably gratifying result every time.
