Machinemade God: Masked

mmgm.jpgBand website

Is German metalcore on par with American metalcore? If this release is any indication, the answer is a resounding “No”. As metalcore offerings dwindled in 2007, so did my desire to listen to them. Is this Machinemade God’s fault? Absolutely not! Well… it’s not theirs alone, but we–as customers–need to send a message: It’s time to retire that rusty cookie-cutter, guys.

There are definitely some funky grooves thrown out from the midst of mediocrity, but nothing on this album makes me want to listen to it ever again.

I already own the last 3 Killswitch Engage albums… why would I want to hear a cheap knock-off?
