Yes I would like to hear a Benighted Rammstein cover. That sounds so wonderfully awful.

The cover "artwork" is meh, but I'm still really looking forward to this though! It's amusing too, thinking of those who will obviously baulk at a "true metal" band like Benighted covering a "trendy scene band" like Machine Head! Can't wait to hear that and the Aborted cover though!

We are talking about a band that rapped in one song and also uses craptons of deathcore-styled breakdowns.

I think anyone who'd have a problem with a Machine Head cover already fucked off .

They rapped in more than one song, though they used breakdowns before deathcore was even around. I think a lot of people think that deathcore bands invented the breakdown, but they didn't. Many metal bands of various sub-genres were using them before deathcore came into existence.

Well, maybe, I'm just glad Benighted don't care what their fans may think about those covers. And "Burn My Eyes" is a great album, I don't care what anyone else says! lol

I only listened to Icon and there is rapping only in one song as far as I recall. Maybe they rapped more but reading reviews, they sounded surprised about that, so I assume if it was commonplace for the band, the surprise would not have been present. But maybe this is an indication I should listen to more of their albums .

As for the breakdown comment, I know that quite well but brutal death metal breakdowns and deathcore breakdowns are different in terms of composition. BDM breakdowns are generally just a significant drop in tempo while -core breakdowns are generally played in a syncopated staccato pattern with lots of empty space between the notes. Most of the breaks on Icon were in that manner.

Why do people talk about breakdowns like they're exclusive to deathcore and brutal death metal?

There was rapping in more than one song on "The Burning Red", but that was the first MH album to feature it, and people were surprised by it when they first heard the album. MH don't have an album or a song called "Icon"... I don't know where you got that from...

Actually, no... one of the earliest (and greatest) examples of breakdowns in a metal song is in "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" by Black Sabbath (it starts at around 3:15). And there are many more examples of that type of breakdown in metal long before brutal death or deathcore were even thought about.

He was referring to Benighted, you're referring to Machine Head. Just thought I'd clear that up for you both.

Oh for crying out loud... talk about crossed wires! *embarrassed*

My comments about breakdowns though weren't confused in any way...

Yeah I was talking about Benighted who rap in "Grind Wit" but I dunno any other song of their in which they do.

Okay, this breakdown thing is getting a bit pointless, I am well aware of their origins and usage, so bad explanation is on my part but let's just say, I view Benighted (at least on Icon) as quite deathcore-ish. Not "modern" deathcore like As Blood Runs Black or With Blood Comes Cleansing but early 2000s deathcore like The Red Chord or From A Second Story Window (or even early Despised Icon). That kind of deathcore had significant grindcore/deathgrind elements to their music and sounded quite similiar to this imo. Of course this is way more on the DM side but nontheless I get massive TRC vibes from this.
Also the breakdown on Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is not like these compositionally. I'd say that originates from Slayer or Machine Head or Pantera, as the breakdowns in Raining Blood, Davidian and Domination all sound like present day -core breakdowns, whilst the breaks in hardcore songs at the time sounded more like the one from Sabbath .
But this is besides my point, my point was that coming from the widespread hate metalcore and deathcore receive, I'd imagine "trve" metalheads are somehow offended by a staccato chug pattern and Benighted use tons of staccato chug patterns, I'd say even more than lots of metalcore bands .
