Reseña de álbum

Machine Head's The Blackening is an over-the-top rage and pummelfest that proves a gamerchanger in heavy metal. Period. Not only does it contain the visceral qualities the band has displayed since commecning its recording and touring career but the growth in songwriting, dynamics and production place MH in their own league as perhaps the most important mainstream genre act on the planet bar none. The record starts out unlikely enough (thankfully) with a left-of-center call to arms for the youth of their nation to not blindly accept the words (and threats) of "patriotic brutes." It calls for a righteous rage with triple-timed slamming beats and blistering lead guitar breaks, as the piece alternates between death metal, industrial metal, hardcore thrash and prog. It blends seamlessly. At ten-and-half minutes for an opening cut, one can tell this is no ordinary heavy metal record. "Beautiful Mourning" is anything but gothic heavy metal. Commencing with a taut, explosive riff matched by the drum kit, Robb Flynn is off and running, celebrating being "taken under" by her, and the seductive power of both women and death. The thrash element here rivals Slayer at their best, and breaks new ground within the realm of composition for aggressive music. The intense dual arpeggios between both guitarists — Flynn and Phil Demmel on "Aesthetics of Hate" (as just one example) are among the tightest ever. The drama produced by Dave McClain's blastbeats and the steady guidance of Adam Duce's basslines comprise a deeply intuitive rhythm section for the six-stringers to fly from. They don't so much fly as fight, though. Other standouts include "Halo," and "Now I Lay Thee Down." Essential.

This is probably machine heads best album so far......its just constantly heavy the whole was through, if you love heavy metal like me then you should get this album listening to the 30 second preview does not do it justice. One of the best heavy albums i've heard in many years!


This is probably the best cd i have heard. Period. If you dog this album thats straight up ridiculous


In a field of crap metal, Machine Head has really come through with this ablum. This bad boy rips your head off! It's so refreshing to hear quality break neck crunches (best since Lamb of God's last cut.) I wish that more bands would rip like this.

Machine Head es un destacado cuarteto de heavy metal de la Costa Oeste, formado en 1992. Gracias a la ética de la banda de "hágalo usted mismo", su agresividad sonora y su incansable autopromoción, Machine Head consiguió un contrato con Roadrunner Records. Burn My Eyes, su demoledor debut de 1992, mezclaba el moderno y potente ataque de Pantera y Alice In Chains con la volatilidad de bandas clásicas de trash metal como Death Angel y Slayer. En sus sucesivos discos, la banda combinó velocidad y metal...
