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

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

Saw MH at first mayhem festival. Only a 30 min set... Too short for them. They should have been main stage instead of dragonforce.

Clenching the Fists of Dissent is really a f**king masterpiece! !

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

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.

Saw them at the very first mayhem festival. They should have been main stage. Instead.... it was dragonforce.

Hand down the greatest metal band ever. Robb Flynn is an instamental and lyrical genious. I Started listining to MH on BME album. And 22 yrs later im still listining to them. Robb Flynn and MH has been with and helped me get through the lowest points and worst times of my life. I've met them 6times in my life. I AM A MACHINE FUKIN HEAD FOR ETERNITY!!!

With all the bands I've discovered since being on Pandora I can always come back and listen to The Blackening. I mean s**t I wore a back patch of the alternate album artwork for years

I hope they start cycling songs that have been released before Bloodstone and Diamonds comes out. LET FREEDOM RING WITH A SHOTGUN BLAST!!

Mh is absolutely awsome, but come on, better than pantera. I think not. There will never be another pantera. Suicide note number two makes me want to tear down walls. These guys kick a** to, awsome live show and great stage pressence, but will never have the power of pantera.

They were so lame when they went nu-metal, glad they went back to making good music.

That description needs some revising tho.. Logan Mader was their first guitarist, not Phil Demmel. After Mader came Arue Luster, then came Phil.. Cmon Pandora, get that s**t right !!!!

Burn My Eyes - possibly the best Metal debut album ever... don't think they ever topped it.
