How do you create a masterpiece of modern metal? Is it a conscious effort on the part of the artists or is it something more organic – a confluence of events and moods, emotions and mechanics that all come together in the right place at the right time? That’s the question that comes to mind upon the first listen to Machine Head’s sixth studio album The Blackening. Guitars ... Read more in Amazon's Machine Head Store

Editorial Reviews

The best way to experience the almighty Machine Head is in the live setting. The Northern California band has established itself as one of the best live acts in the hard rock and metal world, bringing venues and crowds to their knees with flawless onstage execution of their songs. Few, if any, of their peers can deliver the type of sweat-soaked, utterly deafening and fully punishing live sets that the band turns in night after night with near-religious fervor in their native U.S. and across the globe.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Machine Head November 13, 2012
Format:Audio CD
From day one, this has been a band all about live performances. I've thought for years that it just didn't do these guys justice that their only live album was Hellalive, which heavily featured Supercharger. For one, that's my least favorite MH album, and for another, they've put out three albums since then that have defined their career. From the Ashes of Empires, The Blackening, and Unto the Locust needed to be captured live, and this CD does it in grand fashion. Loud, intense, and highly interactive, this is Machine Head in their true element, doing what they've always done best...absolutely slay crowds.

Made up of songs from a variety of shows, you get something from each one of their albums. The crowds are amazing, the performances are damn near perfect, and it reminds me of some of my favorite experiences seeing them live. Come to think of it, not being able to see footage from these shows, as in having an accompanying DVD release, is my only critical thing to say. I would love to see some of this stuff, particularly the high-energy pummeling of "Aesthetics of Hate" and the crowd participation on "Darkness Within." And of course, thrash-fests like "I Am Hell" and "This Is The End." Then, there's one of my favorite tracks from the new album, "Be Still And Know." Ahh, yes, Machine Head have delivered one hell of a live release here, and if you're a fan of these guys, you won't waste a lot of time getting a copy. Machine F'n Head, indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why are you reading this?.... November 13, 2012
Format:Audio CD
If you have clicked on this and checking it out then you already a few steps behind and should've bought it already. not one of those cheesy live recordings where it sounds like they have someone in the back or side of the stage with some recording device. great quality, awesomely powerful band...

just got back from the gym and it took every ounce of energy not to start a pit and breaking stuff from listening to this

you still here? why haven't you bought this yet?

5.0 out of 5 stars Best live metal album in forever November 26, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Live albums of true metal are usually hard to capture and so compressed they aren't usually an enjoyable listen; however, Machine Head nailed this and it's already in my top-three live albums of all-time, with Deep Purple's 'Made In Japan' album from the 1970's and Alice In Chains' Unplugged. Robb Flynn does an amazing job with the crowd and the double disc album features most of The Head's top songs, with a couple of covers and demos as a bonus. The band is as tight as ever and you can feel the crowd's energy in every song. A must buy!!!

I don't like live albums a whole lot usually but Machine Head kicks ass and I got it on sale which always helps. It does have a lot of their better songs on it. Machine Head is an awesome live band so if you like live albums and you like Machine Head then what the hell are you waiting for, buy it already.

This is a very good live album, on the heals of Unto The Locust, probably the best guitar work for a studio album in 2011.

This cd was very disappointing. Their song and setlist sucks. I saw them at mayhem fest a few years ago and it was so boring. They need to stop :(
