Biography

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

)CD will blow you away.
LimpRageAgainstTheBizkitMachine
The music is very heavy and groove orientated, with only a slightly darker leaning to the riffs and lyrics changing the formula inherited from its predecessor.
Kingcrimsonprog
All in all another great album and a must have for anyone who loves their metal heavy.

After one of the best debut CD's in metal history, Machine Head took 3 years to come out with anything new. Worth the wait? You betcha. 'The More Things Change...' is a more complete and refined album than it's predecessor, but still packs the crushing punch MH came to be known for.
The opener, "Ten Ton Hammer" is yet again a killer opener for Machine Head. A concert staple, this song is just packed to the brim with riffs, drums and pure unadultered heaviness. "Take My Scars" takes off where "TTH" left off with more brutal riffs, excellent chorus and intresting lyrics. "Struck A Nerve" is the highlight for me though. This is just an all out brutal thrash assault on the listener. McClain shreds on the drums as the end hits you with some of the most moshpit friendly guitar work around. Extremely fun, modern thrash metal at its finest. "Bay Of Pigs" is another thrash type song packed with seething anger. Read the lyrics while you listen to this one, it's awesome. "Violate", a slow, brooding song that explodes into a thrash fury by it's 7 minute end. "Blistering" has the most catchy riff on the CD, and an epic closer "Blood of the Zodiac" contains the best lead guitar work from the band.
All in all, there is no bad song on this CD. This is Machine Head's shining moment, the only time they ever put together a complete metal album. Absolutely recommended for any fans of heavy music. You can't deny this recording.

This is a genius CD. This 4 piece from America completely revitalized the thrash scene, considering Metallica had lost that super-hard edge with releasing the "Black" album. Burn My Eyes, their debut, remains the fastest selling debut in Road Runner Records history. This may be even better, depending on your metal tastes - it's more melodic, but still brutally heavy, and at times, even heavier, as demonstrated on the super-fast "Struck A Nerve" and "Bay Of Pigs". For those of you who prefer your metal slower and overall, more brilliant, "Violate" is a 7 and a half minute epic, switching from soothing, to crushing, to absolutely blow-away speed. This may just be the most impressive track you'll hear all month. Still, there are tracks which need minor improvement -"The Frontlines" and "Spine" are slightly too long for their own good, running about a minute too long for their own good. Yet still, this "super f**kin heavy" Ten Ton Hammer ( ;) )CD will blow you away. The dentist drill on Blistering will almost certaintly come as relief. Buy this or face the consequences.

If you're familiar with Machine Head's 'Burn My Eyes' album and if you've read the above title, then that should give you an idea on how 'The More Things Change...' is. If you still can't figure it out, then here's an even clearer explanation: it's a less inspired version of 'Burn My Eyes,' though still solid.

What makes the venerated 'Burn My Eyes' so great is its blend of quiet, slow, melody and loud, fast, aggressive thrash. This album tries to follow in that same vein, but unfortunately it falters a bit. It's mostly that the songs aren't as catchy as they are on its predecessor for whatever reason. My theory is that the guitar riffs are a bit more nu-metal sounding.

What can also be said is that 'The More Things Change...' is more divided. More of the songs either don't possess that same melodic/speed blend of 'Burn My Eyes,' or the song (e.g. 'Violate') presents a false sense of climax building. It's only when the song is near end that it becomes apparent that there isn't much of the aggressive rush as there was in songs such as in 'Burn My Eyes.'

Though not as compentate as its predecessor, this album still isn't bad. There are certainly memorable songs such as 'Spine,' 'The Frontlines,' 'Ten Ton Hammer,' and 'Struck a Nerve' (at least the first half.) If you don't already have 'Burn My Eyes,' then you'd be wise to get that album before considering this. If you're looking for material sort of in the same vein, then this is your best bet, as Machine Head's other releases have drifted too far from their original style (though some of it is still decent.)

After seeing at least 35 reviews done on this album, I found it to be a daunting task to attempt to say something great about this band and especially this album that hasn't already been said by all the other fanatical followers of this phenomenal aggro-thrash band who has helped pave the way for other great, newer acts such as Pissing Razors, Skinlab and many other Bay area bands. It cannot be denied that this album is one of the top sophomore followups, and that, given the path that Machine Head has taken with 'The Burning Red' and 'Supercharger,' nothing like this album will ever be produced by Machine Head again. But rather than go on and on about just how great these guys are and how influential this album has been for so many people, I decided to do something a bit different - give a couple recommendations for people who really love this band and are looking for other bands with a similar sound and/or feel.
Machine Head, especially on this album, helped to trailblaze what could possibly by considered a new sub-genre or pseudo-genre in the metal scene: aggro-thrash. This kind of metal is defined by its particularly aggressive style, and its penchant to lighten up a little on the speed of the songs in order to simply make the songs heavier by adding crunchier guitar riffs, baselines, and thundering drums with a bigger emphasis on song quality and style rather than breakneck speeds. Don't get me wrong, though, because bands in this style still know how to tear it up like no other when it comes to making lightning fast songs. However, these bands like Machine Head normally truly shine in works where speed is not the essence of the song(s).
