Gizmachi is an American metal band hailing from the heart of Orange County, New York. The band was founded in 1996 by lead guitarist Jay Hannon and bassist Kris Gilmore. After a few line-up changes early on in their careers, they discovered drummer Jimmie Hatcher and guitarist/vocalist Mike Laurino, who round out their current lineup.
Gizmachi quickly gained popularity among the local hardcore/metal scene and brought forth their twist of heavy metal with a mixture of brutally melodic vocals, offbeat time signatures, and epic guitar solos. The band caught the eyes and ears of percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan of famed metal band Slipknot. In 2004 they signed to his label, ‘Big Orange Clown’, a subsidiary of Sanctuary Records. Gizmachi’s debut album, The Imbuing, was released May 3rd, 2005.
From 2005-2006, Gizmachi spent time on the road supporting The Imbuing. Their most noted tours include high profile festivals such as Ozzfest and Rock AM Ring in Europe. They’ve shared the stage with legendary acts including Iron Maiden, Ozzy Osbourne, Soilwork, Meshuggah, Mastodon, and Slipknot.
Now, after a (very) long hiatus, Gizmachi is set to release their sophomore album, titled ‘Omega Kaleid’. The album was produced and engineered by guitarist Jay Hannon and mixed by Mark Lewis (Devildriver, White Chapel, The Black Dahlia Murder)
