Dirty Machine – Discord: A Video Breakdown
Dirty Little Nu-Metallers.
I tried to warn you. I’ve been saying for months, even years that nu metal was coming back. Sometimes it was just the music. Other times it was mostly the gimmicks. Occasionally, it was both. You may have hoped or wished or prayed to whatever deity you prefer that this was all a coincidence. Just outliers in the metal world before we get back to the 20th thrash revival or post-whatever. You were wrong. Nu-metal is here and it is alive and it is coming for you. The band name that doesn’t really make sense. The super aggro in-your-face lyrics. The basic riffs. The masks. The DJs. The rapping. Say hello to Dirty Machine.

0:12: Ohhhhhhh shiiiiiitttttt!
0:16: It must be hard to drum when you look like an extra from Death Race 2000.
0:21: They’re like Hollywood Undead, but without the fans or platinum and gold records.
0:25: Since I’m (and by extension, everyone else watching the video) is a liar, then I’d just like to say that Dirty Machine doesn’t look ridiculous. At all.
0:36: Their neck pain must be extraordinary.

0:51: Those clean vocals were…unexpected.
1:01: They’re not bad or anything, they’re just out of place.

1:13: I can practically see the motocross and BMX riders now.
1:19: Dirty Machine: Coming to a Warped Tour side stage near you.

3:16: I mean, they do know that laptops exist, right?
3:20: Guess you don’t want to upset all those wikky-wikky purists out there.
