A Dying Machine is the fourth studio album and first concept album by heavy metal band Tremonti. It was released on June 8, 2018 via Napalm Records. The record was produced by Michael "Elvis" Baskette, who produced Tremonti's past three records and also produced Alter Bridge's records. The album is accompanied by a full-length novel under the same name written by Mark Tremonti and John Shirley, tying together loose ends of the album's plot.
You're no true soul, you'll never be Man-made device, you've haunted me You're built to serve, to calculate You're built to love, to overtake. Stay with me for I would never ever leave you Hold my hand for I would never ever let it see an end Oh, you are mine, oh, I could never ever leave you behind Oh, stay with me for I would never ever leave you. Look at you now, you're a dying machine Cold and disfigured, corrupted, diseased Again, you've come back, oh, I'll die in this place Mechanical cradle, synthetic.
Undoubtedly, with A Dying Machine, Tremonti boldly steps into the challenge of writing a concept album. Having said this, Tremonti did in fact make the right choice and may have just launched his career to one mark above the next level. To an extent, once absorbing A Dying Machine, a listener may feel the meaning to it all still remains a mystery, thus adding to the album’s mystique. However, there will also be listeners who pick up on the pattern of lost love and loss of control with a touch of unrelated rebellion .

On June 8th, Tremonti returns with their fourth album A Dying Machine, a concept album that showcases Mark’s unique songwriting style and vocal melodies. Anthemic choruses, punishing riffs and fiery guitar solos are showcased on the album in rockers like "From the Sky" and "Throw them to the Lions" and places them alongside the infectiously catchy "Take You With Me" and "The First The Last".
The real strength of the album comes in Tremonti's knack for melodically strong anthems. Take You With Me" is already getting radio play, and "The First The Last" may have some legs with potential to be an even bigger single if given a shot. As a top-to-bottom listen, A Dying Machine flows well with no duds and will likely rank as one of 2018's best rock albums. Tremonti is preparing an accompanying book which will likely fill in the blanks and connect the dots, but until then A Dying Machine lays enough of the seeds to intrigue.
Mark Tremonti is a busy man, and so are some of the people who have worked with him. Coming from the heavily reviled act by the name of Creed and later becoming a staple of a highly respected band in Alter Bridge, the guitarist has managed to do a lot in his music career that many people couldn't even do in their life. This includes also having a solo project that is just as respected and beloved as the Alter Bridge project is, even though it's lesser known and buzzed about.
