iTunes Review

The eighth album from Machine Head is a sonic journey into madness and back again. Brain-scrambling themes of death, regret, and dereliction provide emotional punches, but it’s the melodicism (especially on “Now We Die” and “Beneath the Silt”) and inescapable guitar shreds that carry this. “Night of Long Knives” documents the Charlie Manson murders with creepy aplomb, machine-gun drums, and kaleidoscopic guitars. “Killers & Kings” employs face-melting riffs to uphold Robb Flynn’s vocal pulverizing, which he abandons for a beautiful croon on “Damage Inside.” Flynn howls “No gentle mercies here” on the finale, “Take Me Through the Fire.”

Amazing band. This album is definitely worth the price.


Two singles and they're both amazing. 10$ is worth this album. The music is worth the wait. Machine F'N Head rocks.

Very excited.

Machine Head is one of those bands that seem to get better with every release. When I heard the demo version of "Killers & Kings", I was already stoked. "Now We Die" is an AMAZING SONG. I absolutely LOVE that song. I wish I could go buy the album right now! I have very good feelings about this album and I know that it'll be a phenomenal album.

Their blistering debut, 1992's Burn My Eyes, blended the powerful, modern attack of Pantera and Alice in Chains...
