Yeah, I'd say you could make a Machine Head one aswell seeing as both bands currently play metal lol

(btw Greety was just kidding hahahaha)


So please, no "go to the Nu-Metal forum!" posts. Keep this focused on the music. Let's start off with a topic on their up-and-coming album, the Blackening.



I have high hopes for the new album. It will be kickass if it matches up with their last CD, TTAOE. Being better then it would be fantastic! Plus, what do you think of the band overall? I find them to be awesome. Lots of energy with catchy riffs. I only have TTAOE and Burn My Eyes so far. With BME being their best imo. I still need TMTC, but I'm going to pass on The Burning Red and Supercharger. Not a big fan of that MH period.

I watched a video of "The Blood, the Sweat, the Tears" off of Hellalive on Youtube. Yeah, it was pretty solid. MH's live shows seem like so much fun and have a lot of energy.

Great band, they were actually my first live show during the Elegies tour, one of the best shows I've ever seen. I own their dvd, TTAOTE, BME, and Hellalive, only CD's worth owning IMO, the rest is repetitive bullshit,lol. But still, gotta love Rob Flynn.
#12
I've had the elegies dvd in my drawer unwatcher for over a year know.

I was at there when they recorded it...


Anyway, TTAoE was great and I think if the new album lives up to the previous one's standard I might bother getting into them again.

First a cof thread now this. Im gonna start a killswitch engaged thread.


...and get it closed. Bo said MH were allowed in here, since most of their material, including the latest album to date, are metal.

CoF were always metal, they are just usually frowned upon.

I have high hopes for the newwun, aslong as they don't go Metalcore it should be good.

Judging by the cover it looks like it's going to be a more brutal affair.

Mostly due to Dani's horrible vocals, I'm guessing.
#29
If machine head are allowed due to 'currently playing metal' that means trivium should be allowed for playing bastardized AJFA, shouldn't they?

Same goes for every other band out there that would possibly be argued.

I don't understand why you can't just talk about them in another ****in' thread.

Well, they don't "currently play metal," as they only had a couple "non-metal" albums, so they "did play metal, then stopped, and are playing metal again."


I don't understand why some people are so harsh on bands that somewhat teeter on the edge. Trivium is not one of those bands, however, because we all know that their previous album + EP were metalcore, and that the newest is just an injustice to any sort of subgenre of metal.
#31
The difference between Trivium and Machine Head is that MH started off Metal, they just went through a rough patch.

If it's about bands who played metal but then went off it, we should be sending Paradise Lost, Anathema and Katatonia on their way too.

I hope The Blackening doesn't disappointment...TTAOE is good, however I'm still skeptical after that nu-metal bullshit. And all I ever hear Robb say about this album is, "it's heavy as ****, with so many ****ing riffs, long ****ing songs, ****ing sick ass pure metal! cheers ****ers!"...Well Robb, that's all fine and good, but I'm looking for quality, not quantity, and if it's a shit ton of generic metal riffs thrown together to make 8-minute generic metal songs, I'll be pissed. I have high hopes but it wouldn't be the first time they've disappointed me.

Don't know any of their songs or have any of their albums, but I was impressed by the first song on the Gigantour DVD.

So when can I open up a Fear Factory thread in here

Anyhow on topic, personally I'm looking forward the new record not much of a fan but it is worthy of a listen.

^Yeah, thats getting kinda dry. I hope they open with something bludgeoning on The Backening, so as to offer themselves a bit more diversity in their setlist.

Cannot. Wait.

Just want to bring up the validity of a Machine Head thread being in this forum again due to the Metal forum's description:

'Forum for true metal. Death/ Black/ Gore/ Grind/ Power/ Gothic/ War etc. Dedicated to the most blasphemous and extreme metal bands!'

Machine Head doesn't belong in here.
