“When the world is yours”
When you are in a band for almost a decade and you reach the top of everything with an album that will change the days and nights of many people, it is somehow logical not to have many chances to have the same success for second time again, especially in nowadays.

Some people say Machine Head are the head of thrash while some others regard them as the ambassadors of NWOAM (new wave of American metal). I do not care where to put them, but I know that they can easily be regarded as the future of general metal.
Points: 9 / 10
