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.

0:04: I know it sounds like a joke, but this band is signed to Motograter’s drummer’s label.
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.
0:40: Why does he have a hat and a hood on? Is he chilly? Does he needs some hot cocoa?
0:44: Yes, please give up a close-up of your 5:30 shadow.
0:51: Those clean vocals were…unexpected.
1:01: They’re not bad or anything, they’re just out of place.
1:07: There’s an energy drink company executive absolutely jizzing himself trying to get these guys an endorsement deal.
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.
1:24: I mean, once they’re done opening for Corey freaking Feldman, of course.
1:30: I’m happy to report that, yes, each band member has a nickname.
1:33: David Leach aka (Dirty Davo) – Vocals
1:37: Arnold Quezada (Hedge) – Guitar
1:40: Darren Davis – Guitar/Vocals
1:42: Nathan Young (Youngblood) – Bass
1:45: Mike Weekley (Nightmare) – Drums
1:49: DJ Ecusa – Turntables & Samples
1:53: Darren Davis – Guitar/Vocals
1:57: Poor Darren. I guess he doesn’t get a nickname.
2:01: He’s like Tim from Ghost Bath.
2:05: I’m sure the Kansas City Royals are thrilled to be associated with Dirty Machine.
2:17: Those fingerless gloves really help keep his palms warm.
2:26: I wish their hands also had masks.
2:33: This song is perfect for a wrestler just starting out in NXT, WWE’s developmental organization.
2:38: On drums, the Predator’s brother, Fred.
2:45: That’s right. Fredator is on the drums.
2:52: That’s not how you play the bass!
2:58: “You brought this on yourself.” I feel like he’s talking directly to us.
3:11: I’m really blown away that a new band has a DJ in 2017.
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.
3:27: They never addressed why the machine is so dirty. I guess we’ll never know.

Dirty Machine album Discord is out on May 26th via Zombie Shark Records.

    I’ll start being concerned when Nu Metal tops charts and fills arenas like it did in the late 1990s-early 2000s.

    • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

      I don’t think anyone should be worried about something like that happening.

      • Igor Javutich

        I’m sure it won’t. Besides, it was a short lived fad the first time around.

    • Sir Ukkometso The Based

      I’ll be worried when Nu-Metal moves to my neighbourhood.

    • Count_Breznak

      What’s the difference to now ?

      • Igor Javutich

        Nu Metal isn’t even a blip on the radar except for Metal obsessives right now.

        • Count_Breznak

          Well…but does it really matter what kind of shitty music tops the charts and fills arenas ?

          • Hesh

            I would rather good music top charts and fill arenas so that the people making that music can actually make a living.

  • Howard Dean
  • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

    That song exemplifies everything that’s wrong with the genre. Say what you will about some of the original bands that started that whole sound, but at least they had their own character.
    Those second-rate nu metal bands that basically all sounded the same, yet all got a shitload of airplay were the worst. Spineshank, 40 Below Summer, Taproot, Skindred, American Head Charge, Demon Hunter…


    • Igor Javutich

      The aforementioned Coal Chamber…

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        The less said about that band, the better…

    • Sid Vicious Promos

      I love AHC, Spineshank, 40 Below Summer, Static X, Motograter and Dope. Fight me.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        Life has thought me that each and every single one of those bands suck ass…BUT life’s a subjective experience and there’s no use fighting over subjective experiences.

        • Sid Vicious Promos

          I agree. Everybody has their own opinion. I consider Wisconsin Death Trip one of the best industrial albums ever along with Downward Spiral and The Land of Rape and Honey.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I consider Wisconsin Death Trip a torturous assault to the ears…but that’s just me.

          • BobLoblaw

            “Your shits like chocolate cake and your ass smells like a rose” now thats what I call lyrics! Vol.76

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I know it’s an unwritten rule not to speak ill of the dead, but compared to Wayne Static, Alexi Laiho could be considered a legit lyrical genius.

  • Budget Slipknot

  • Waynecro

    If I were in this band, I’d want a nickname. And I’d use that nickname in place of my real name. And I’d wear a mask and hope the internet never discovered my identity.

    • more beer

      The internet always finds out. Ask the dude from Ghost.

  • Hans

    What’s clean singing doing in the dirty machine? If it wasn’t for that, 13-year-old me would’ve likely been all over this. That dude needed a paddlin’.

  • Howard Dean
  • Decapitron

    God has forsaken me.

  • Sid Vicious Promos

    I like nu metal. I don’t like this.

    • Óðinn

      I like real Metal. So I don’t like this either, JJD.
