ABOUT ROBERT ANTHONY ROBINSON–
1st born grandson from a big familly, all of whom were musicians, Robert was going to band rehearsals since he can remember.at 10 he started to play guitar,drums and keyboards,by 12 he was cutting his teeth on “CCR” and Skynyrd. “A half black kid with an afro playin’ in his uncle’s country rock band.” Time passed and Robert put together some of his first bands, Screamer, Pegasus, Archer, Screaming fetus, Fade to black, Passion Fatal and finally Love Lode, his most successful endeavor to date. After Love Lode broke up there was a period of soul searching. Sick of being “that guitar player that plays for…”, he decided it was time to front his own band and finally be who he was supposed to be.
It took some time to find the right players: Bryce Van Patten (from Babylon, Wild Dogs and his own label Man In Black Music) on rhythm guitar, keys, programming, engineer and production duties. Robert’s best friend from high school, Ted Behm from Anger Management shredding on Bass. Another long time friend and collaborator, local legend Dan Carlson from Love Lode on drums. The line up is now set in stone. Let the ones with vision stand on it to witness the new, let the blind be crushed beneath it, never knowing what they missed.
Heavy. Dark. Intense. Three words that have been used to describe the band and their music. Three more would be: Rhythmic. Precise. Energetic. Anyone who has witnessed one of their numerous live outings, whether it be playing one of their own gigs or as the direct support for a National touring act, can attest to the very raw and almost animalistic energy Mechanism brings to each performance, which is a direct result of the near constant practice of the individuals and the professional stance they take regarding their craft.
Mechanism has been fortunate enough, through hard work and goodwill, to share the stage as direct support with world
class national acts including: DOPE, Metal Church, Devin Townsend, John 5, Ghost Ship Octavius, Sanctuary, Motograter, Davey Suicide, Dokken, Lynch Mob, Brazilian metal gods Mindflow, Y&T, Lizzy Borden, Michael Schenker and many more. Mechanism is also a very active part of the amazing music community in the greater Seattle area and are proud to have shared the stage with nearly every one of the top local acts in a similar genre.
Having laid a solid foundation within both the local music and fan communities throughout the greater Seattle area, Mechanism has positioned themselves
as serious contenders for world wide exposure. The band is currently expanding their show schedule and fan base in Washington State, Oregon, California, n Idaho and British Columbia as well as entertaining any opportunity that comes their way. Mechanism’s unwavering dedication, steady consistency and professionalism has resulted in being well known for being a very friendly hard working band and are much sought after for high profile shows and direct
support for touring national acts.
Moving into 2017 Mechanism will release their new, highly anticipated full length album “Mourning the Fate of the World” and are currently working with OEM Media Group for tour dates, support as well as digital and physical distribution world wide.
