'''Machinae Supremacy''' is a Swedish band formed in 2000 whose style mixes PowerMetal with ElectronicMusic. They call themselves "SID Metal" because they use the MOS Technology 6581 SID, the synthesizer chip from the UsefulNotes/{{Commodore 64}}. Many of their songs are inspired by {{anime}}, WesternAnimation and VideoGames; for example, "The Wired" was based on ''Anime/SerialExperimentsLain'', while "Return To Snake Mountain" references ''Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse''. Along with the video game influence, they make a point of basing many of their lyrics on themes of self-empowerment, non-conformity and bringing revolution, quality, talent and depth to the mainstream music scene. They've had songs featured in the ''VideoGame/InTheGroove'' series, are responsible for the soundtrack to ''VideoGame/JetsNGuns'' and contributed heavily to the GianaSistersTwistedDreams soundtrack.

Added DiffLines:

* OneOfUs: Should we start with the SID chip, the video game, cartoon and anime themes, their non-conformity themes, the ''[[VideoGame/JetsNGuns Jets 'N' Guns]]'' soundtrack, their songs on ''VideoGame/InTheGroove'' or the fact that they've entered various contests based on video games, including ones for ''WorldOfWarcraft'' and ''VideoGame/BionicCommando''?


Added DiffLines:

* SpiritualSuccessor: To MASUGN, Garden of Concrete and [=LifeForce=]. All three were disbanded by the time Machinae Supremacy was founded. Rob was associated with the former two, and Kahl the latter.

** At MAGFest 2014, Rob announced on stage that if some of the audience hadn't heard of them before, not to worry because "our music is on the Pirate Bay."

** Due to the nature of a ConceptAlbum, they're not based on the games, but Phantom Shadow has songs titled "PerfectDark" and "BeyondGoodAndEvil." "Hubnester Rising" was originally titled "Child of the Vault." Seeing as it's about an awakening evil, it could either be a reference to {{Fallout}} or {{Borderlands}}.

* TakeThat: Multiple against the RIAA and the mainstream music industry. The song "Legion of Stoopid" contains particularly nasty shots at a lot of things they're against including the RIAA, GeorgeWBush and Creator/{{Fox News|Channel}}.
