Gene Freeman, known professionally as Machine, is an American music producer and engineer who has worked with many bands, including Lamb of God, Clutch, As It Is, Crobot and others.[1][2]

Machine the band[edit]

"What do you get if you cross an Italian, a Czech, a Welshman, and two Americans together?" was the joke. The answer, as we found out was a hip-hop, rock crossover band with a rather confused identity. The outfit was formed in 1993 Machine with his friend and percussionist, Vision. Once relocated to London they quickly recruited a band which included Welshman Chris Dale, Czech born guitarist Fil Eisler and Italian drummer, Alex ‘Sponder’ Elena. After a couple of UK tours, a few demos and a TV clip on ‘Noisy Mothers’ there was very little sign of industry interest and the group went their separate ways. Machine went on to produce bands, Vision defected to the industry side and has managed bands such as Serafin and Muse, but also plays the role of ‘The Delicatessen’ in Sack Trick, and Fil Eisler joined the Robbie Williams band.[3]
