So, anybody heard this through yet? I've listened through now quite a few times and i think its unbelievably good, perhaps even better than The Blackening :)

Can't pick a favorite, but if one tune were to stand out marginally more to me is This is the end.

Any thoughts from other metal music fans?

This is the end (track 4): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ud9uz55N-iM
I am hell (track 1): http://www.aimini.net/view/?fid=n4MCvHNJlTzKkbPnHOuw (couldnt find a youtube link at the present time, keep getting removed)

Disappointment. 7 songs. Sell outs.

I've only liked Protest the Hero - Scurrilous and Electric Wizard - Black Masses this year. Metal's mainstream is dire as Hell these days.

I've seen worse. These guys structure a lot of their songs pretty similarly, but at least they're done concisely... but people want here more than just good musicians going at it rhythmically then calling it a song, then pasting a bunch of those to a generic album name.

Maybe if listeners weren't so jaded to discern true quality even over time, then there would be more motivation to put more effort into constantly outdoing themselves every time they put out a record.

I liked metal when I was a lot younger..


Too shit these days though.


I don't think the audio swapper helps me in 60% of youtube videos as well.

It's now in 45% of all Youtube videos.

The other 55% has FUCKING DREAMSCAPE. Fuck the guy who ever made that fucking song [/psychotic]

Have to say I've never been a great fan of Machine Head. They have a few nice grooves but the majority is a bit too repetitive for me.


Although I'm liking Mastodon's new album.

Not when it's with every type of Youtube video.

Seriously seen it with everything from cat videos, technical tutorials and 9/11 Google Earth conspiracy shit.

At least this got some posts and some chuckles, you think a thread about Machine Head would have lasted more than a day?

Really dont understand why people dislike them, ok they went a bit nu-metal in the late 90's and very early 2k's but man didnt everybody to an extent? it was the biggest wave in music at the time.

New, Mid, Old, i love all :)

I can also guarantee that nobody can show me a heavier band

HOHOHOHOHOOOO.

It's not an insult to Machine Head to say they're not the heaviest, because they're not; in any way.
Signatures are dumb.

The Blackening is awesome, but i aint talking about just that, listen to songs like;

Blood of the zodiac [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4Jv3vpVP3A[/youtube]
None but my own [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JT2ZXmqRItM[/youtube]
Death Church [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dngS9dgHq[/youtube]
Ten Ton Hammer [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjl5AKpsDoU[/youtube]

etc.

These songs are so amazingly heavy, without blatently sounding like they're trying to be, its not all about speed and chugging you know...

Only reason why you all hate is because they turned nu-metal from like 1998 to 2003, but if you actually think for a second, most of your well known metal bands did including slayer and metallica... and machine heads nu metal material is amazing also, better than most if not all during that period.
