In Unto the Locust, the crew from Bay Area based around front man Robb Flynn continues where they stopped in 2007 with 'The Blackening' Even more hazardous riffs clash enormously with massive concrete sound walls. At times, there are fragile or treacherously quiet moments...but not many!
Machine Head prove once more that they can be trusted to blow you away.

Some forces of nature are on the loose very frequently - and have no lasting effects. Others, though, hit us rarely, but leave their distinct mark. Machine Head have always belonged to the second group; even these days, after almost two decades of excessive Metal mayhem, the Thrash pioneers are one of the most consistent and passionate outfits in the Neo Metal genre. An impressive proof of that fact is their seventh album "Unto the locust“ - front man Robb Flynn and his Bay Area crew pick up their devastating work where they left with their brutal opus "The blackening“ in 2007: even heavier neck-wrecking riffs collide with massive sound barrages, just interrupted by short, fragile and deceiving breaks. To cut a long review short: a lot of one-album-wonders may be the flavour of the month - but on the long run, there’s nothing like falling back on the real master blasters.
