I thought 'Through The Ashes of Empire's' was the best album Machine Head could produce, but 'The Blackening' is such a brilliant album that it is up there with Master Of Puppets (timeless).A lot of MH fans still think 'Burn My Eyes' is the best, that’s cool it was a great album but Machine Head got worse after that album.’ The More Things Change' was ok but not brilliant, there were some good songs on it.The Burning Red' again far from good but some good songs on it. ‘Supercharger' was crap. The only thing that saved Machine Head was Hellalive. They managed to play all the ok songs and make them great. Then when they gave us 'Through the Ashes of Empire's' I was shocked how good it was.My mate was like 'listen to this' to be honest I was like 'no man they are crap now' boy was I wrong. It was awesome I still play it every day. When the 'Blackening' came out I was stoked to hear it. It is such a masterpiece. Not one song bores me or makes me think 'ill skip this track' they are brilliant. I can’t wait for the next album. They are the best metal band out at the moment. I think the next album will be the most brutal Machine Head album to date….. they can only get stronger.
