Hell yeah!!! I hope this album will be just as great, if not greater than The Blackening. The Blackening, in my opinion, is their best album.

They're not going to be able to follow up The Blackening. Just sayin' :allan:

Probably not, but dammit there's no need to be such a pessimist!

It's been leaked since Saturday. But I definitely agree that it is awesome. But I would still love to hear some tunes that are up to par with Cleaning The Fist Of Dissent and Slanderous. Those are my favorite Machine Head tunes.

Yes! Agreed! But who knows, lets wait and see, we might be surprised ;)

I like it, I'm glad this isn't one of those instances where a band follows up a great album with a shit one...well it isn't so far anyway. I still doubt it's gonna match the Blackening

Follows their formula pretty well (epic intro, groove-thrash riff with artificial harmonics, breakdown, melodic solo, whispering, repeat) which is not a bad thing at all. Hell, I'm just glad to finally hear new material by them.

fix'd.

I dig the song. it sounds like the album will be a continuation of the sound on The Blackening.

I'm no guitarist, but isn't that thing in the beginning of "beautiful Mourning" an artificial harmonic? It's at 45 seconds

I dig it. I'm pretty stoked for their new record, any word on when it's due out?

September, Metal Hammer UK confirmed. I say September because the date doesn't matter, it will leak early September.

Yup, but it's different from an natural harmonic which is used in "Locust" and a lot of their other songs. An artificial harmonic is a "squeal" sound (a.k.a. what Zakk Wylde plays every other friggin' note) and a natural harmonic is the ringing, bell-like sound used in MH songs like "Davidian," "Halo," etc.

Oh yeah, I love that squealing sound. Natural harmonics are pretty cool as well.
