Machine Head releases the Locust

Long time metal band Machine Head have released an advanced mix of a song titled “Locust” which will be on their unnamed upcoming September release.  Give it a listen and let us know what you think.

While I think that the song is pretty damn good, there is a lot missing in the production department.  The drums especially don’t sound very well mixed and don’t hit as hard as the drums in a Machine Head song should.  The bass is practically inaudible and the vocals are way too high in the mix.  The tone of the guitars sounds off to me also, it’s as if the mixer jacked up the treble and left it as so.  Since this is an advance mix, I’m not letting the lousy production quality of this track weigh in on my anticipation of the album, but come on guys, you can afford a lot better production for a taste of the new album for the fans.
