Album Review

The diehards who saw Machine Head as metallic saviors when the group's Burn My Eyes debut filled an overlooked niche of heavy music didn't appreciate the experimentation on Burning Red. Some of the criticism that the band took from the faithful was almost laughable — Rob Flynn tones down the screams, learns to sing a bit, and he's crucified for it? However, even sans cliquishness, the preceding disc was the weakest of the band's career at that point. The band reacted to the backlash by compromising, it seems. Supercharger has some ham-fisted moments straight from the early thrash days (as if to make a point, the riff that drives lead track "Bulldozer" does exactly that), but it never gets stuck there. Look no further than "American High," a song with the cadence of "Ballroom Blitz" and a similarly insipid lexis that's catchy in spite of itself. The dilemma is not so much the sonic scope of the record, which — truth be told — is the most well-rounded effort the band has managed to date, but the quantity: way too many tracks blur by without demanding attention, relegating the few standout songs as too little, too late. ~ Brian O'Neill, Rovi

Customer Reviews

This album is Machine Head's most diverse.

You know, I LOVE Machine Head. Especially their first two and last two albums. Those albums are a BRUTAL combo of Pantera-esque groove metal and Metallica/Testament-esque thrash metal. But everyone loves to dog on The Burning Red and this album, Supercharger. I agree they are subpar compared to Burn My Eyes and The Blackening, but The Burning Red and Supercharger have a flare to them none the less. I am a rock/metal person. I HATE rap. But there is some rap/rock that I love because of the groove and the harshness of the vocals. Machine Head tops any other rap/metal I have EVER heard. The vocals reign with an unequalled harshness and the guitars have a heavy, good groove to them. I love that. It has its own brand of intensity. That is awesome to see a band like Machine Head diversify and broaden their horizons. But im also glad they returned to the original thrash/groove style they had in the beginning with Through The Ashes Of The Empires and The Blackening. Machine Head is one of the greatest metal bands of our time, and even though they had a slump, The Burning Red and Supercharger are still great albums in their own right and are worth the money. They are GOOD fun to listen too even though they dont rock AS hard as their other masterpieces. So what are you doing?? Considering buying this album?? You should. I'm glad I did. Support Machine Head and support you ears. GET THIS ALBUM!!!!

Brutal Trash

If you are a fan of old school thrash your missing a great album. Buy this and every other Machine Head CD you can find. Mixes amazing guitar work with great vocals. And it only gets better after this album.

Not to be overlooked....

Criminally overlooked as a band, Machine Head's "Supercharger" is a thrash metal tour de force that does not let up from beginning to end. The killer riffs of "Bulldozer" and "White-Knuckle Blackout" pummel you until the deeply atmoshperic heaviness of "Deafening Silence"(one of the best tracks of their career) Buy this album NOW!!!!!

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Influential West Coast heavy metal quartet Machine Head formed in 1992 around the talents of ex-Vio-Lence guitar players Robert Flynn and Phil Demmel, bass player Adam Duce, and drummer Chris Kontos. Their D.I.Y. work ethic, aggressive playing, and relentless self-promotion eventually landed them a deal with Roadrunner Records, a relationship that would extend all the way through 2005. Their blistering debut, 1992's Burn My Eyes, blended the powerful, modern attack of Pantera and Alice in Chains...
