From it's inception in 2015, Death Therapy has defied genre classification. Jason Wisdom, the mind behind the music, seems practically obsessed with pushing creative boundaries to their breaking point. If someone asks "what does Death Therapy sound like," the only correct answer is "it sounds like Death Therapy." Every song in the band's catalog is a journey in itself, traversing a sonic landscape of thundering bass guitar riffs, electronic grooves, and an industrial atmosphere. For the third LP, Melancholy Machines, Wisdom sheds much of the metalcore influence from his early days and fully embraces the dark, groovy, electronic rock sound that has made Death Therapy unique. Melancholy Machines was written and recorded with producer Nate Washburn (My Epic, Everything In Slow Motion, Empty, Comrades) at Glow In The Dark Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. The resulting effort is Death Therapy's grooviest, catchiest, and most unconventional record to date. One moment the listener is bombarded with fuzzy detuned bass riffs, and the next moment they're serenaded by haunting piano melodies. Whether it be saxophone solos, orchestral arrangements, bongos, or analog synths, unconventional instrumentation is a common theme throughout. Like the first two albums, Wisdom's lyrical content continues to wrestle with unfiltered, personal, psychological struggles wrapped in dark, introspective motifs. With Melancholy Machines, Death Therapy proves that the only thing you can expect from them is the unexpected.
