  1. Redeemer

    Redeemer is the second studio album of the SID Metal band Machinae Supremacy, released March 18, 2006. Originally planned for release by Music By Design Records Ltd. in 2005, it was delayed when MBD Records ceased to exist. On February 6, 2006, to celebrate the release of the new website, two new tracks from the album were made available for download; Rise and Through The Looking Glass. One thing of note is that Rise is actually Lava Bubble Trouble from the Jets'n'Guns Soundtrack, only reworked into a full song. The band would later repeat this by converting 'Flight of the Toyota' into the album-track 'SID Icarus' within their next album.
