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).

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. Or, if you're too lazy for that, read my overview, which is my attempt to put all the pieces together.

Notes from Joe -- Updated 1/19/2016

As Embers Turn to DustEdit

The story told through Mechina's albums is titled "As Embers Turn to Dust". It is a century- and planetary-spanning story of man-made gods and city-sized machines called Titans. The plan is to tell the story across eight full-length albums, with a "single" between each album. These singles typically 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.

After Xenon leaves the story on a cliffhanger, the next couple releases go back to fill some gaps in the story.
