Machine Head have released another track from their forthcoming album “Catharsis” simply entitled “Bastards”
Having listened to the track myself in my opinion it’s different to the majority of things I’ve heard from Machine Head in the past few years. The difference in style musically between the previous song “Catharsis” and this track are also quite stark. The track at the beginning reminds me a bit of Linkin Park, it goes on to be a very lyric orientated song, while musically it’s melodic to backup the lyrics in an attempt for the band to get a message across.
After listening to it a couple of time I personally neither hate it or think it’s one of their best songs but will continue to listen to it. This said for some fans the difference between the style of this song and previous material is going to be a case of either you love or hate it. I’ve enclosed the track below for your to give it a listen and see what you think, if you feel like leaving a comment the please do.
