Machine Head - The Blackening (CD)
- R 87
How do you create a masterpiece of modern metal? Why not ask Machine Head, since they wrote the rule book from their very first release 'Burn My Eyes' over a decade ago, a combination of the aggression of metal and punk, and the social anger of urban rap, intertwined with hypnotic Alice In Chains-esque vocal harmonies. So it's no surprise with new album 'The Blackening' they challenged themselves to demolish their own boundaries, delivering in the process 60 minutes of the most structurally complex and technical material that Machine Head has ever recorded, Produced once again by singer/guitarist Robb Flynn (Roadrunner United, Machine Head) and mixed by Colin Richardson (Bullet For My Valentine, Funeral For A Friend), 'The Blackening' features all the hallmarks of a great metal classic with the fresher dynamics the Bay Area thrash pioneers are famous for.
