Through The Ashes Of Empires ~ Machine Head
5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible, 29 Oct 2003
Absolutely incredible. No other word justifies it. Finally a real metal album.
The Head go back to their 'Burn My Eyes' days with this release. The raw, un-compromising and angry Machine Head are back and with songs such as 'Imperium' the beautiful 'Descend the shades of night' and 'Elegy' this album will definaetly earn it's way into the heavy metal hall of fame and into the hearts of every true heavy metaller worldwide.
Thanks for another diamond of an album MH.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and brutal, 18 Oct 2003
My god, bands like FATA only come once in a blue moon and when they do, it's always something special.
This album is definaetly a good follow up to 'Too Bad...' Maybe it isn't as raw and aggressive as the previous one but it is still a great album and shows a growth in FATA's sound, they are maturing well.
Songs like 'Alive Out Of Habit' and 'Milligram Smile' are a nice mix of beautiful/brutal and maan, 'The After Dinner Payback' is the most HEAVY FATA song since 'Take Her To The Music Store'
Definaetly worth checking out. If you enjoyed 'Too bad you're beautiful' then do yourself a favour and buy this NOW. You won't regret it.
