I love my job! No, I really, really do – and do you want to know why? It's because I get to discover some bands that I previously haven't heard of who have albums out that I'm really glad I got to listen to, and 'It Make Us Hate' by Machinage is one such album.

For those of you who haven't heard of the band before, they were founded in 2007 in Jundiaí (a city in the São Paulo area of Brazil) by Fábio Delibo (on vocals/guitar) and guitarist Fernando Kump. In between various line-up changes, that band self-produced this, their debut CD which was originally released back in January 2012.

During that time, the band set about building their fan base and have been sharing the stage with such Metal luminaries as Overkill, Sepultura, Nuclear Assault and Dismember. So, how does the CD sound, then, I hear you cry?

Well, it's nine tracks on full on Metal that is an absolute blast from start to finish. I've been listening to it on and off for over a week now, and it just gets better with every listen. The band describe their music with three words: "Heavy", "Speed" and "Melody" but when you add in great production with supreme musicianship, and you end up with something as polished as this, it's really hard to believe that this is only their first album!

'5 Beliefs' has a very Megadeth feel about it with the slow but tuneful guitar intro which blends nicely into the main guitar riff before the relentless drumming provided by Ricardo Mingote really sets the track on fire. The opening vocal lines from Fábio Delibo even sound like Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine and you can almost imagine Delibo scowling Mustaine-style as he utters the first few lines.

'Anguish' gives bass player Adriano Bauer his chance to shine in the intro before the main riff takes over and produces another quality track.


If I had to choose a favourite track on the album, it would be 'Cold 3rd War' without a doubt. From it's sound effect intro through the killer riff and the almost chilling spoken samples from the two American announcers reporting the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and talking about the threat of a third World War that sets up and closes the song is just genius.

Again, Delibo works his way through the vocal lines without missing a beat and scarcely stopping for a breath - great stuff, whilst the guitar solo is just full on Metal from start to finish. It may not be the longest son on the album, but it checks pretty much every box in the Metal song checklist and is a song that the band should be justifiably proud of.

Addendum: The band are currently recording the follow up to 'It Make Us Hate', however, guitarist Fernando Kump has now left Machinage, and they have recruited Ricardo Macan to the band in his place – so look out for their new album later in 2013!

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.


Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.

Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.


MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.


Wacken 2018 takes place from 2nd to 4th August 20218 and as with Wacken Winter Nights, if you have never experienced all it has to offer, then you owe it to yourself to remedy that.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

As well as being the greatest Heavy Metal festival in the world, it is without a doubt the Mecca of Metal and the one thing that every single person who loves our music should have on their bucket list.

For 2018, MetalTalk have joined forces with Wacken-Open-Air to help you get to Wacken easily and inexpensively and you can peruse the ticket and travel options right here.
