Machine Head – ‘The Blackening’ CD

Price: $86.79 USD

‘The Blackening’ is the sixth album by American heavy metal band Machine Head. Released on March 27, 2007, in the United States, The ‘Blackening’ sold 16,000 units in its first week, and became Machine Head’s third highest charting release at number 54 on the Billboard 200, and charted in the Top 20 throughout many countries in the rest of the world.

The album’s first single ‘Aesthetics of Hate,’ is retaliation to an article written by William Grim for the website Iconoclast. Titled ‘Aesthetics of Hate: R.I.P. Dimebag Abbott, & Good Riddance,’ the article praised the murder of guitarist Dimebag Darrell.

The song received a Grammy Award nomination for “Best Metal Performance” at the 50th Grammy Awards. The text in the mirror on the album’s cover reads “the mirror which flatters not.”

The song ‘Beautiful Mourning’ has been featured as a playable song in the video game ‘Guitar Hero: Metallica.’ The song ‘Aesthetics of Hate’ is featured as a DLC song in the video game ‘Rock Band.’
