Just got around to listening to the newest Machine Head album The Blackening... IMPRESSED. Pretty epic. What do you guys think?
#2
Probably gets in my top 10 albums ever. I was so shocked when I heard it. It is insanely good.

PS. The solo to Halo is very sexy, but all in all the harmonies in the album were brilliant.

Don't give me the junk about Machine Head not being metal... they fit in the METAL section, they were before NuMetal and I see no other section to put them in.

Horrible album.

Yeah, I listened to it, I didn't think it was that great. The pinch harmonics and overall guitar tone weren't very good (I think). I would much rather listen to someother extreme metal, but it was alright. If it was on the radio, I'd probably listen to it, as it is better than most of the crap on nowadays.

Awesome album!!! This album way got me into Machine Head. And obviously slanderous is the best track on there, although its hard to pick a best cos every song on there is just so damn good.

I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

I love how people on this forum are dismissed as elitist because of a negative opinion.

Much as I happen to like MH and this album, for fuck's sake TS, you're a year late and there's a massive Machine Head thread.

How much of a fucking moron do you need to be to miss the search option and 2 fucking stickied threads in this forum? Idiot.
Dyer's Eve is awesome, and has an abnormally large penis, which doesn't act as any hinderance to his everyday life despite its freakishly large size.

maybe i should have taken that into account, but i've got into the habit of telling 'elitists' to shut up whining about music.

the songs on this album on this album are good
the bad thing is the riffs, they're so typical generic metal/metalcore, well apart from a few
#23
Shall i come back in a year and a half so you can tell me if the new metallica album is good? I'll just borrow the rock you were under...

Seriously dude, a year later? wtf...

Agreed entirely. Don't really have much else toadd, but clearly the best song is either Clenching The Fists of Dissent or Farewell to Arms.

yea man, who ever doesnt like pantera or think they suck doesnt like metal, end of discussion, they changed the freakin world n made history, so don't be sayin they suck, have respect, same goes for machine head n lamb of god cuz their good too
#25
I think Machine Head is one of the worst bands, and I see nothing in this album.
I want to go as far to the edge without going over. Out on the edge, you can see all kinds of different things.

Most overrated album of the year. It's fine guitar wise but the vocals suck. It's almost nu-metal. Vio-lence was alot better.
