Machine Head

Influential West Coast heavy metal quartet Machine Head formed in 1992 around the talents of ex-Vio-Lence guitar players Robert Flynn and Phil Demmel, bass player Adam Duce, and drummer Chris Kontos. Their D.I.Y. work ethic, aggressive playing, and relentless self-promotion eventually landed them a deal with Roadrunner Records, a relationship that would extend all the way through 2005. Their blistering debut, 1992's Burn My Eyes, blended the powerful, modern attack of Pantera and Alice in Chains with the volatility of classic thrash bands like Death Angel and Slayer, earning them a huge European following. The record sold over 500,000 copies and spawned a massive international tour that lasted almost two years.

Kontos was replaced by new drummer Dave McClain on 1997's More Things Change, an album that saw the band blending speed and progressive metal with dizzying results. The excessive touring and high-octane lifestyle took its toll on the group, but the bandmembers fought through their demons on 1999's Burning Red, resulting in the hit "From This Day," their first commercial single and video. Supercharger was released in 2001, followed by the concert album Hellalive and the critically lauded Through the Ashes of Empires in 2003. The DVD Elegies arrived in 2005, followed by the classic new phase Blackening in 2007.

In late 2010, Machine Head went back into the studio, setting up shop in Green Day's Jingletown Studios to begin work on a new album. Produced by Flynn himself, the band released its seventh album, Unto the Locust, in 2011. The band returned the following year with the enthusiastically titled live album Machine F**king Head Live! and continued touring relentlessly both in the United States and throughout Europe.

In February of 2013, Duce left the band. This made Flynn the only original member. After a series of auditions, Jared MacEachern, formerly of Sanctify, was named as his replacement. The group returned to the studio in February of 2014 and built on the more intense sounds of their previous two studio albums. They emerged with Bloodstone & Diamonds in November. ~ James Christopher Monger

About the bio, I'm fairly certain BME was released in 94 not 92. Logan Mader was the other founding guitarist. Phil didn't join til 03.

Quick correction - Logan Mader (guitar) was in the original lineup along Robb; Phil came in after Arue Luster left the band immediately after Logan's departure (after touring in support of The More Things Change...). Robb and Phil were the core of Violence in the 90's....

i grew up in the bay area, we saw vio-lence play everytime we could. so i expected alot more from machine head. again i say yes they are great but i feel they are not putting out as good of songs as they could. their songs are sounding very much alike. robbs voice gets old fast with me and i feel phil is being held back, listen to eternal nightmare. phil is the king of riffs. he needs to be let loose and then well have a mh album for the ages

Coolest guys......st r a i g h t up. Saw them many times and was lucky enough to hang with them a few times. My new prized possession is my black epiphone guitar sighed by the band! They are metal....... . . m o d e r n day Metallica!

Ya John, pretty lucky band, to have Phil Demmel, and Robb Flynn as dual leads. Both spectacular. Dave Mclain on the drum kit is Ill too!!

I agree with ya t dawg. Hatebreed is cool,but not very complex. Mh has a lot of different types of guitar playing. Acoustic and electric
Report as inappropriate
And MH guitars plays more than 3 chords. Hatebreed is brutal but very simple musically.

The blackening is an awesome album

Machine Head is the better band. Hatebreed is fantastic in their aggressive brutal sound. I just like Machine Head better.

Who do you guys like better; Hatebreed or Machine Head?

By the way, the blackening is my favorite from MH.
