Version Française ici : The Mechina Wiki

This wiki is dedicated to the music of Mechina and specifically the epic scifi story told through their albums.

This is my attempt to document a story I don't fully understand. I'm hoping others will correct me where I'm wrong. I don't want to describe my interpretation of the story, I want to describe the "actual" story (as Joe Tiberi intended).

Reading this Wiki[]

Each song has its own wiki page, which includes my interpretation of that track. To learn the story as it progresses, visit each song's page in turn.

If you're too lazy to read every song's wiki page, ---> read the Story Overview <---, which is my attempt to put all the pieces together.

Conversely, if you want to read an in-depth analysis and rampant speculation of themes in the story, check the Analysis page.

As Embers Turn to Dust[]

The story told through Mechina's albums is titled "As Embers Turn to Dust". It includes new planets being colonized over centuries and a war of man-made gods and city-sized machines called Titans. Mechina releases the story as full-length albums with a "single" between each album. These singles fill in missing pieces of the story and bridge the gap between albums. Mechina has a habit of releasing full-length albums on January 1 of each year and a single sometime during the summer.

Main Story

1. Conqueror
