Initial pressings of THROUGH THE ASHES OF EMPIRES include a bonus disc. Machine Head: Robert Flynn (vocals, guitar); Phil Demmel (guitar); Adam Duce (bass, background vocals); Dave McClain (drums). Recorded at Sharkbite Studios, Oakland, California in 2003. Machine Head: Robert Flynn (vocals, guitar); Phil Demmel (guitar); Adam Duce (bass instrument, background vocals); Dave McClain (drums). On THROUGH THE ASHES OF EMPIRES, Machine Head delivers another potent dose of the group's signature blend of late-1980s thrash and Pantera-inspired alt-metal. This time around, though, the band takes frequent musical interludes from the sonic onslaught--a tinkling toy piano provides "Left Unfinished" with a nicely eerie, horror-film intro, while "Wipe Away the Tears" features a Black Flag-style spoken rant. In a few places, the ordinarily pummeling juggernaut that is Machine Head even gets downright melodic--"Shades of Night," for example, features vocal harmonies would fit right in on an Incubus disc. Longtime fans need not worry, though--THROUGH THE ASHES OF EMPIRES provides enough angst-laden growls and six-string shredding to keep heads banging, machine or otherwise.
