Introducing Observers “The Age of the Machine Entities,” an instrumental heavy metal reimagining of Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C Clarke's 2001 A Space Odyssey.

Observers is a new project fronted by Martin Kennedy whose ambient rock band All India Radio has seen music used in CSI, One Tree Hill and many more. 

Canadian metal titan Devin Townsend even covered an All India Radio song that he fell in love with while on holiday.

Kennedy has also released over fifteen albums with Steve Kilbey of psychedelic rock legends The Church.

The album is entirely instrumental and takes us on a cosmic journey through melodic metal, atmospheric riffs and psychedelic ambient sequences with echoes of Gojira, Black Sabbath and Tangerine Dream.

The album was mixed by Joe Haley from Tasmania’s legendary Psycroptic and the band is Martin Kennedy (me) on guitars, Rich Gray (Annihilator) on bass and Chris A Bohm (CrowsVsRavens) on drums. 

The evocative album art is by Ryan T Hancock (known for work with King Buffalo, ᴀɢɴᴏxɪᴀ, Robot God)
