I very much enjoyed this interview. Especially the akward silences. LMFAO! Beyond that, fairly worthless since the interviewer hasn't heard the album yet... *akward silence* Roadrunner!

@Blindgreed1 I agree 100%. if you're going to do an interview, at least have your questions and responses planned. LOL hasn't even heard the record yet! Great job Metal Injection, also, the single has been out for a bit, you could have opened with that single rather than the video from a release off their 2007 album.

I hear you Wilco. I cant wait to buy it,throw it into the cd player in the Exploder. People who have heard it in its entirety tell me it measures up against The Blackening,which is a good thing.

I wanna hear that song with the children sung chorus. That's gonna be weird to listen to.
But the opening track feels like you're getting hit in the face with a steel girder.

"Who we are" is the song with the children chorus, and its only in the beginning really. It does appear later in the other chorus sections but it's buried beneath Flynns vocals, so it's irrelevant at that point beyond adding layered texture to the song.

UNFORTUNATELY, thats the only song that kindof annoys me. The chorus is lame and the lyrics are a little wack. The song itself is great, but it's one of those machine head songs I dont really want to sing along to. The same way Metallica's "Dyers eve" is kinda gay once you read the lyrics.

Other than that, it's honestly better than the blackening in alot of ways. Especially in the clean singing department; it no longer detracts from the heaviness of the songs, equaling more badass for everyone.

The only good tracks on this are Be Still and Know, Locust, This is the end, Pearls Before the Swine and Who we are.. every thing else u wont like. Im surprised i guessed it right that this album wouldnt be as epic as The Blackening. The Blackening was pure raw. This was just not good enough of that epic sound. There was a picture of people actually going through everything in my head when i heard The Blackening few years ago. This is just gonna be overrated. And the solos in this were pretty good but not as good as the ones in The Blackening. But im happy they released another good album. If i were to put in order my favorite MH albums it would be The Blackening, Unto The Locust, Burn My Eyes, Through The Ashes of the Empire. I am not a big fan of metalcore, which this band has some elements of in some their work, but the ones they put up are the best metalcore sounding riffs. It's a very good album and i hope this sells as good as The Blackening.

^^^This entire post is subjective and you have the right to your opinion, even if you're wrong. Also, its "Through The Ashes Of Empires".

#16 - If anything, metalcore bands have elements of Machine Head in THEIR work. Same goes for Sepultura, Pantera, Fear Factory, Meshuggah, and the list goes on... Do we really need to associate all these veteran METAL bands with a musical trend that didn't even exist till at least a decade later?

Alright, I'm curious. It's been forever for since "The Blackening" and I thought that one was decent with more than few moments of greatness. Add one more album to the autumn release heap :D
