Community Feed: So today I was playing my fender Stratocaster and I heard a slight noise so I turned up my TV volume (I was playing Rocksmith remastered 2014 but it also happens on my Rouge G-10) and I heard a radio station so I turned off and on my Fuzz face when off I couldn’t hear it but when on I can and I cant be the guitar because I unplugged it and it still played a radio station.

Decibel magazine has given Machine Head’s new effort “Catharsis” a devastating review. Reviewer Jeff Treppel even gave the release a shrug emoji (¯_(ツ)_/¯), rather than assigning it a numeric rating. Looks like Machine Head didn’t exactly appreciate the judgement, taking to Instagram to vent on it and the reviewer in question.

“DECIBEL MAGAZINE SLAMS “CATHARSIS”!
The former-Decibel cover stars new album gets called “juvenile”, “stupid”, “endlessly pummeling” and a “Super Collider-level-miss”.

Oh, and hey… FUCK YOU Jeff Treppel!!

Read the entire review below:

MACHINE HEAD – CATHARSIS

EVERYTHING OLD IS NÜ AGAIN

Let’s just tear off this Band-Aid:

The new Machine Head is a 74-minute rap metal album with a song that sounds like the Dropkick Murphys in the middle. Maybe Robb Flynn really misses the late 90’s (although, let’s be honest who doesn’t these days)? Maybe, after a decade of ridiculously great progressive groove metal records, Flynn decided to blow off some steam by going back to “The Bleeding Red’s” knuckle-dragging simplicity?

The frustrating thing about Catharsis is that Machine Head are great even when they’re making bad music. The Soulfly tribal breakdowns on “Volatile,” the drop tuning on “Beyond The Pale,” the whiteboy hip-hop of “Triple Beam” (nothing more “street” than gymnastics metaphors), the anti-gentrification screed “California Bleeding” –they’re effective in the same primal way that the best Rage Against The Machine and Korn hits were back in the day. None of it feels half-assed; these are clearly well-crafted songs.

It’s all just so stupid.

As intermittently satisfying as the nu-metal approach may be, Flynn and his bandmates have proven themselves more than capable of expressing their rage articulately. This feels juvenile from dudes pushing 50. There are certainly some interesting parts mixed in; unfortunately, with 15 songs, any nuances get lost in the endless pummeling.

Frankly, I’m baffled. This is a “Super-Collider“-level miss from a band that seemed to have ditched this phase long ago.

“Catharsis” drops Jan. 26th

In an op-ed from Neill Jameson (Krieg), Decibel – indirectly – responds to the matter:

“Recently a popular metal band publicly made a filled-baby’s-diaper kind of complaint that Decibel had given them a bad review. If you’ve spent your whole career wondering what the quickest way to make people think you’re an asshole, then, eureka – welcome to the internet! I figured this shit out in the ’90s, but I understand if you might have missed it since those really cool cornrows probably took up a lot of your free time.

This isn’t just to dogpile on a man obviously having a difficult time with old age, though. This time-wasting “think piece” is here to consider the concept of reviews and the complicated relationship between reviewers, reviewees (not a word, I guess) and, for lack of a better word, etiquette.”
