Album Notes
"Mankind Is Obsolete," also known as "MKIO," is a female-fronted industrial rock band based in Los Angeles, California. The group was formed in fall 2002 by founding members Jon Siren (drums) and Natasha Cox (vocals). By early 2003, Mankind Is Obsolete's groundwork had been laid, and Jon and Natasha recruited Mark Nurre (guitar), Brian DiDomenico (keyboards), Gordon Bash (bass) and recently "Collide" guitarist, Scott Landes.

Mankind Is Obsolete released their debut 6-song “Metamorph” EP in August 2003. The EP has proven itself to be as popular overseas as it is in the United States, as online buyers have purchased it and sent positive feedback to the group. Mankind is Obsolete produced a video for "Rapture," a song off of the EP. In Feburary 2006 they released the video for "Still Right Here," from the album, "Rise," released June 2005. The band is currently working on a video for "Victory" and will be released exclusively on their upcoming DVD.

The group has promoted themselves through five self-organized tours within the past 3 years, which has helped to develop an ever-growing loyal fan base. In 2006 the group performed over 90 shows which included their 9 week United States and Canada summer tour. Mankind Is Obsolete has performed with many notable artists, including: KMFDM, Collide, Pigface, Free Dominguez, Genitorturers, and Beautiful Creatures. The group also performed at the 2005 Gothstock Festival in Connecticut, which featured the Genitorturers, Combichrist and Cruxshadows.

Mankind Is Obsolete's current plans include a full US and Canada tour in 2007 and 2008 to support the release of their third album (currently untitled) due out in the summer of 2007.

Excellent album
Try it, you'll either love it or hate it. I had high hopes, and this album is better than I had expected, following on the high promise of the metamorph ep, the songs are varied but consistently good qulity and suitably dark with a punkish edge, I look forward to the next album. People who like this might also like the work of Son of Rust.

Another great album from MKIO!


A Masterpiece!!!
This album is a masterpiece, period. I really don't understand why this band is still unsigned, I woundn't be surprise that MKIO get as big as Evanescence in the near future, they definitely deserve that amount of attention.

A must add for any fan of rock inspired darker music
Great CD! I had high expectations after the Metamorph EP and all expectations were matched and surpassed. The production is masterfully executed, songwriting is strong, and performance is solid. I especially like the songs, "More than what I am" and "Victory"

If you are a fan of rock inspired electronic music, or electronic inspired rock music, this is a must buy, you will not be dissapointed.
