The Human Machine


Ah yes, more old school Death Metal goodness from Master. The Human Machine is a speedfest without going as far as the insane speeds of more modern Death Metal, sticking to the basics, chugging along some thrashy riffs and showcasing some cool solos just in the right places. The vocals are particularly visceral on this album, a spiteful, throaty rasp/growl that's hard to ignore – especially on "It's What Your Country Can Do For You" where" where it often sounds like he's mumbling – raspy mumbling, now that's something. ;)

Some slower parts give the listener a bit of a breather here and there, but overall The Human Machine is one hell of a slab of thrashing madness, Death Metal-style. Sometimes you just want some in-your-face metal, and Master have delivered that once again.
