Review:

This is the latest album from Machine head, and in my opinion one of there best.
I bought this album just the other day and it hasnt been removed from my cd-player since.
My favorite song on the album is 'Bite the bullet' its got kind of a violent sort of sound to it but not tacky like some of the new stuff that comes out normally has. Bite the bullet is my personal favorite from the album but there is not a single song on there that i dont like. Some of the songs have a mellow sound to them that makes you feel kind of 'chilled and then a heavy guitar riff begins to creep in then it just totally blows you away, cant be faulted.

Recomend to- I recomend this album to ANY metal head out there even if u havnt liked the bands older stuff this album is a must. Even if you have to origanly download it to listen to it because you might think that you could be wasting your money, i guarantee that you will want to buy it after listening to it, it isnt a waste :)

i really really love this album.

i can't really call myself a "metalhead" as i only really listen to abit of pantera, metallica and megadeth. i don't know alot about metal, but i really love this album.

all the songs are great, my favourite would definately be Wipe The Tears, mainly for the ending, it's so fast and energetic.

i always skate to this album, as it's really uplifting and upbeat. i recommend this to anyone, like Clown said, this is a beast of an album.

Fairly cool album, but VERY deriviative. I mean, Wipe The Tears? It's 7 Seconds by Deftones. Imperium steals a riff from Death. And there's a couple of other tracks that are openly indebted to System Of A Down (notably Bite The Bullet).

Still, Descend The Shades Of Night is great.

4/5

Yes I do, and yes I do. I forget which Death song it's taken from, but it's a definite steal. Rob just changed the mutes around a little.

7 Seconds was by Nenah Cherry and Youssou N'Dour. How the hell did I get them mixed up with Deftones?!?

'Tis hard to say. You sure do have your foot in your mouth lately though. :mad:

I really like this album. Its a wonder that I haven't bought it yet. I've only heard Imperium but I thought it was fucking great.
