MMI is the solo project created by producer/songwriter/front man and multi-instrumentalist
J. Bergman who has a history as the drummer in SLAPDASH (Nuclear Blast rec) and
ROSICRUCIAN (Black Mark Prod).
MMI is back with the second part of the trilogy of EP/Mini-albums to be released back-to-back with only a year, or less, apart.
Following last years highly acclaimed “ESCHATON I. Reckoning Day”, The second EP is titled “ESCHATON II. Judgment Day” and is released by GMR Music, April 28 2023.
As on previous albums J. Bergman (J.B) have had some help from producer/songwriter Erik Mårtensson (ECLIPSE) in writing some vocal melodies, like for instance on the song “The Sniper”.
On “Eschaton I” J.B sings a duet with legendary singer Dave Hill from NWOBHM-legends DEMON and on “Eschaton II” J.B does a duet with David White from the old-school Bay Area thrashers HEATHEN on the song “R.I.P” ,which is an energetic thrashy, yet melodic tune.
The MMI Machine sounds stronger, more powerful, more energetic and aggressive yet melodic than ever!
A FEW WORDS FROM J. BERGMAN ABOUT THE “ESCHATON” TRILOGY!
“The first album in this trilogy was called “ESCHATON I. Reckoning Day”.
I also wanted to have a guest on each album and on “E. I.” it was DAVE HILL from the
NWOBHM/progressive hard-rock pioneers DEMON from UK on the track “Information Overload”
As it happened, I met the thrashing band HEATHEN from the Bay Area at a festival we both played,
so, I thought, why not ask David White if he wants to be the next eminent guest. David said -Hell Yeah.
He re-arranged some stuff, wrote a few lines and then tracked his vocals on “R.I.P” and it became an awesome duet you can hear on the “Eschaton II” album!
If you liked “Doomsday Clock” from 2020 you’re going to love all of these albums. You’re in for a triple thrashin’ heavy metal treat for sure.
The theme of the trilogy are different takes on the end of the world . Not all the songs carries the theme but the cover-art of each album and most songs do.” // J. Bergman
