Remember Machine Head
, those who brought out 2 bombs "Burn
" The More Things Change...
ut who also brought out 2 shits " The Burning Red
" and howfull " Supercharger
". The group brought out " Through
the ashes of worsens " who showed a Machine Head
in shape even if he contained some defects. Then, 4 years it will have been necessary to wait so that the American group gives birth to his fifth child.
Having taken out a very good DVD in 2005, it is year 2007 which marks the release of "The Blackening". While is it about this opus?
" Clenching the fists of dissent " opens the ball with an intro which is not without reminding us "Imperium
". Instruments arrive and send us a high-powered riff. The title, long of 10 minutes, consists of many alternations and advances the technique of the group by bringing out us impressive soloes, of exelent riffs and an impeccable singing. A first track which impresses and is powerful. The album contain 2 parts.
There are on one side 4 tracks of 10 minutes which are " Clenching the fists of dissent ", "Halo
", "Wolves" and " Has farewell to arms ". Difficult to decide between them so they are different and excellent at the same time. "Halo
" is the song which most marked me by a strong presence of the clear singing of Robb Flynn and Adam Duce.
2 other tracks are very good also and show an inspired Machine Head
, technical, and impressive.As for 4 othertracks which follow each other on the album, they are in a trash vein with always some passages neo-metal but nothing unpleasant. The clear singing is also present and some compos call back us to tracks of the good period.
The tunes are very stickers and very well interpreted by the frontman. No title is bad and I have don't have any favorite beetween all the tracks of this album, so, ALL the album fooled me.
takes risks by bringing out an album of only 8 tracks , but a duration of 61 minutes. Be not too sceptic by seeing the duration of the tracks , because this opus is really good. "The Blackening" is the most technical, the most popular album of Machine Head
and the soloes of Phil Demmel and Robb Flynn's guitars are more numerous than usually
.The new Machine Head
arrived. We like or we don't like. For me, the choice is made!
The big surprise of year 2007!
