I actually thought the same, but have yet to do it myself.  I will look into it.

Looking at the tour dates, it seems plausible but unlikely.  While they are all in Europe around the same time, they are in different countries.

I suppose that pretty much confirms it´s not true. :)

Back on topic machine head is coming out with the new cd in February through nuclear blast records 

I've always considered Machine Head a thrash metal band for people who don't like thrash metal. If that makes any sense.

The song they have released at least has one great riff, and that one of course got some (pointless) controversy, people claiming it´s copied from Strapping young lad. lol :D I love what Devin Townsend commented about it, very cool. :)

I remember back in the day when the purely thrash dudes started expanding their musical interests, they started to like Pantera and Machine head etc. I steered to total different direction going to black, gothic, death metal etc. (I still like Pantera of course, just never was a "huge" band for me)

accuser announce a new record for 2018 through metal blade records 

MOD EDIT: the requirement to prefix each post with "back on topic" is not needed thanks Deathstorm, if users want to engage in discussion about the albums posted that is fine, this is not a "list" thread.

Deathstorm posts release information exclusively. Death to false discussers. 666. 

I'm really looking forward to the new Ozzy Osbourne album providing they keep Kevin Churko away from it. I'm also interested in seeing what Dimmu Borgir come up with, because it will have been 8 years since their last studio album, and even that one divided a lot of fans. What the hell have they been doing?? Also, I really hope Children of Bodom keep that downtuned sound for their new album. I just loved 'I Worship Chaos'.

Hmm, doesn't make sense to me, Machine Head doesn't have anything to do with thrash. Robb Flynn hasn't played thrash since maybe Oppressing the Masses by Vio-Lence.

I've got it on pretty good authority that they'll likely be an Illuminati release next year. I'm pretty exited.

Well don’t leave just yet - I’m sure the album won’t be that bad!

Exited - Elvis has left the building.

Excited - I'm gong to see Elvis. 

Do you 'c' what I mean now? 

I'm dumb. 

I also said "they'll" when I should have said "there'll". 

I blame autocorrect.

Protest the Hero is coming out with another album in late 2018 and I CANT FUCKING WAIT.  I'm seeing them in April for the Fortress 10 year tour, it's going to be so amazing.  The venue they're playing in Ottawa is super small, I'm hoping to be able to say hi to them after the show and slap hands.

Following "The Satanist" will be a toughie, stoked to hear what they come up with.

"O Father O Satan O Sun!" was my favorite Behemoth song, and I hope their new album will have songs that are similar.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!

      3/5
