It's not a bad song. It's not a bad album, it just doesn't seem to have any focus. No Replies Log in to reply. General Comment The title seems more suited to their latest album, "Bloodstone and Diamonds" in regards to "cards". Although the music and lyrics are way off the mark for that album.

For the rest this song isn't bad but just a bit mediocre. One of the less good tracks. Don't expect results as Slipknot has Prostethics-Scissors but Machine Head really succeeds to make a good song. The song starts with a slow burning beat with some nice riffs.
The couplet is a bit creepy with Devil With The Kings Card - Machine Head (3) - The Burning Red (CD) doing a mix between whispering and screaming very weird but it works, Devil With The Kings Card - Machine Head (3) - The Burning Red (CD). The pre-chorus is more the metal feeling with crushing guitars and hard drumming.
Till now there was nothing outstanding, very good but not worth the grade I'm giving. The chorus however is incredible beautiful, still creepy but also beautiful. The pre-chorus is the same. The chorus however is doule length, woohoo. Now I'm gonna talk about the chorus: Rob sings emotional and powerful at the same time. The guitar riffs are awesome and the Dave does some nice hitting on the bell of the ride. The bridge is again just good, nothing too special and the final chorus comes in again.
The only negative thing I can say is that I wanted a long final chorus, about 4 or 6 times with swearing in it or something. The final chorus is only done 2 times, just a bit too few. Still it is one of the best tracks on the album. Grade 9. It's not a ballad but it's close to that word, the song starts with Devil With The Kings Card - Machine Head (3) - The Burning Red (CD) clean guitar and goes into the great couplet. The pre-chorus sounds very happy while Rob sings "I'm sending a S.
The couplet after that part is partly clean and partly distorted. Rob screams on a soft way and somehow he sounds emotional. It's awesome!!!! After that part Rob goes back to the S. After that part the song becomes quiet again, and then the outro comes with a feeling of a final chorus. Pretty funny, while there is not an actually chorus. Perfect song, but it's just too short, that will take 1 point.
Still this is higher than most of the rest. The song starts with a quiet guitar noise and goes into a heavy slow riff. The whole song is heartless and without emotion, that's probably the reason why I don't like it.
Rob screams his lungs out of his chest but stays on on tone. The guitars are boring and don't deliver good riffs. The bass can't be heard which is very normal in bands like this. However, a bass would be a good idea cause that would make the song more interesting. The drums however are very good and although it is simple the drums are effective. For the rest This track is useless, filler and stupid.
Grade 3. The couplet is also very in-your-face metal. It is all very good but nothing really stands out and the song will not stick in your head. The riffs are very good, especially in the couplet and intro. The bridge sounds more like a couplet, nothing special. Not a bad track. After you've heard it you can easily understand why, the whole song is full of energy from intro till end. And goes into a heavier part. The couplets are really nu-metal like, a good sign.
Rob sings a bit sweary and like he is drunk. The chorus is very energetic. The energy found in that song can only be compared to the other songs with such a high energy rate.
The drum is very simple but still efective. The bridge is really a bridge, it feels like a bridge. With another great guitar riff and some drumming Rob screams not too much. The last part of the bridge is a short clean interlude and a build-up to the final chorus. The last chorus is double-length and again is awesome.
This song is just the normal intro-couplet-chorus-couplet-chorus-bridge-chorus-outro but there are few songs that got such a power. A perfect way to end an album, period. The song starts with a clean guitar and stays clean throughout the song except for the last part with a light distortion in it.
Devil With The Kings Card - Machine Head (3) - The Burning Red (CD) couplet is the same as the intro but has Rob singing in it. The song is very slow and it takes a while till the chorus comes but when it comes Rob sings very emotional and the great guitar riff fit perfectly into each other.
The drum and Devil With The Kings Card - Machine Head (3) - The Burning Red (CD) come in at the second couplet. Dave drums a very standard beat. The second chorus is again a bit louder but still is very emotional. The part after the second chorus is a interlude into the awesome final chorus with Rob singing "wooohooo" in it The ending has a kind of soft industrial Devil With The Kings Card - Machine Head (3) - The Burning Red (CD) in it.
The drums slow down and the guitar makes some weird effects. The end isn't totally necessary but because it is the end of the album it won't take points of. Great song. Exhale The Vile 2. The Burning Red 3. Devil With The King's Card 2. From This Day 3. Enter The Phoenix Conclusion: This is more than just a nu-metal album. This album has a great variety of angry songs to creepy songs and even ballad-like one's.
After all, the songs that are good are just incredible but there is just a bit too much filler in there. Mainly because a good song comes next and you just want to skip that one before because it is almost the same but worse.
Still this is a great album! Rank: for Nytro 3. Linkin Park Reanimation. Soilwork Stabbing the Drama. In Flames Clayman.
