Guest review by
"1994... corruption, racism, hate. The church has failed... If Jesus came down, he'd be shot…"

This is the scenery, this is the reality. Welcome to the experience that visioning Thrash Metal through Machine Head's burned eyes is. Zenith of a relatively controversial fusion of conservative postures and modern approaches (which doesn't always have to mean alternative), I still get impressed of how successfully heavy and intense this album is, several years and listens later. During that time much has passed but its essence persists, which is, by itself, a fact that makes anything not recent interesting.

Yeah I'm glad that I decided to listen to this album first instead of Bloodstone And Diamonds. Best of groove along with The Great Southern Trendkill.

Even the lyrics are a lot more insightful than the new album.

IMO this is one of those albums that have so good first track it basically kills the rest. Good album, even their best alongside The Blackening, and definitely a masterpiece compared to their latest output.
You've got a lot of guts. Let's see what they look like.

The Blackening isn't a bad record at all, but comparing to debut - it looks extremely average stuff. As a matter of fact, I never found any MH album even 90% close to the debut.

The only MH album I enjoy
I thought the two primary purposes for the internet were cat memes and overreactions.

A classic groove/thrash metal album of the 90', but i prefer their progressive thrash metal era (2003 - 2014)
