What happens when a metalhead, a classic rock fan and a semi-drunken semi-hipster decide to talk music and more.

Episode 77 - Machine Head - The Blackening (10th Anniversary Special)

March 25th, 2017

Join us today when we at Iron-Cast celebrate yet another 10th anniversary release, this time being Machine Head's "The Blackening" (released 27.March.2007). Leaked online two weeks before its release, "The Blackening" still became Machine Head's highest charting release in the US, and earned the band a Grammy nomination. But what of this album? Is it an over-the-top ragefest that rivals Slayer at their best, or is it a half-assed effort from a trend band ripping off 90's Pantera and 80's Metallica? Tune in to find out.
