Blasted Mechanism are a Portuguese experimental electro-rock band known for its highly theatrical live shows which involve elaborated alien-themed costumes as a backdrop to their truly original music style.The band was founded in 1995 by Karkov and Valdjiu. Later, new members joined to form the current line up. As they like to put it "they weren't created but invented" ,arriving in the Portuguese music scene with a very different sound and visuals. Their unique style of alien and tribal looking performers playing electronic mixed with world music is conveyed through sound, image and also through an irreverent, upbeat attitude.
