    Machine Head: Robb Flynn (vocals, guitars); Adam Duce (vocals, bass guitar, background vocals); Phil Demmel (guitars); Dave McClain (drums).
    Oakland's Machine Head is back with its sixth release of blistering, smoldering, and streetwise metal. Arguably the band's finest work to date, THE BLACKENING digs back to the band's technically-savvy, thrashy roots and brings them to the present with brilliant production. Produced once again by guitarist/vocalist Robb Flynn and mixed by legendary knob-spinner Colin Richardson (Carcass, Bullet For My Valentine), the sleek-sounding album presents eight tracks of bruising metal, rife with attitude and passion. Adding fuel to the band's aggressive fire is guitarist Phil Demmel, who was Flynn's bandmate and co-guitarist in the legendary Bay Area thrash outfit Vio-Lence. From the Dimebag Darrel-inspired "Aesthetics of Hate" to the sobering "Beautiful Mourning", THE BLACKENING is designed to be an instant classic.
