Unbeknownst to me and I guess unbeknownst to a lot of people following the Chinese underground scene, Twisted Machine had released another record called XXX in January 2010, over two years ago. The above song is a cooperation with Yin Tsar and one of the better songs (as per my opinion) on their record.
Whereas the other two major nu-metal bands that had started a long time back, namely Yaksa and Miserable Faith have abandoned the nu-metal path and devoted their time on the one hand to metalcore (Yaksa) and on the other hand to folk music (Miserable Faith), Twisted Machine is raising the banner of crossover and nu-metal music.

The play counter on Douban is showing figures in the ten thousands for Twisted Machine’s new songs, however in other parts of the music scene is have been rather silent around the band with even their official band biography on Douban stopping with release of XXX some time in 2009 (bio) / 2010 (record page). Too bad for what had once been an ass-kicking band with drive in their music and passion at concerts has fallen to sleep…
