Welcome To The Machine is a documentary analysis of the functionality in music business. This automatically makes the film a 100% documentary with comedy and drama, as well as 100% semi-investigative. In 12 chapters the filmmakers are trying to answer the question what the everyday work life of a music star looks like.
What do you have to consider when starting a band? What is a manager actually doing? How do music media, band contests and other promotion strategies work? But most of all: Is there a formula for success? The film gives a clear answer to that, although that is to say that there are as many formulas for success as there are artists/bands. This is clearly shown in all the interviews, which have been taken with national and international stars during the production of Welcome To The Machine.
Interviews with artists: AMORPHIS, BUCKCHERRY, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, DANKO JONES, DISTURBED, HALESTORM, HELLOWEEN, LACUNA COIL, LORDI, MEGADETH, NAZARETH, PAPA ROACH, PARADISE LOST, URIAH HEEP.
