About Machine Head

The band Machine Head is from Oakland, California, where it formed in 1991 by Robb Flynn and Adam Duce. Robb Flynn is the bands vocalist and guitarist, while Adam Duce is the bassist. The genre of Machine Head is thought to be the new wave of heavy metal that is found in the United States and not places like Norway. In Norway, they are known for their black heavy metal. Robby Flynn was previously in bands like Forbidden and Vio-lence, but felt it was time to be a bit more challenged. He left the thrash metal band Vio-lence in order to start Machine Head with some other musicians. The current lineup includes Rob Flynn with Logan Mader, Tony Constanza and Adam Duce. Machine Head first released the album Burn My Eyes, which was astonishingly popular in Europe and found its playtime on Headbangers Ball on MTV. Unfortunately for the metal heads, the beloved Headbangers Ball with Adam Curry was taken off the air during the 1990s grunge era. It took a lot longer for Machine Head to take off in the United States, which is often the case with new or cutting edge music across genres. In the early days, Machine Head would jam with the local punk rock bands in the underground warehouse scene in and around Oakland. In 2002, Machine Head got incredibly close to breaking up the band when dealing with recording label issues with Roadrunner Records. The fourth album the band released Supercharger led to the music video creating controversy and being pulled from numerous media outlets. After Machine reassigned with Roadrunner, it released an additional three albums: Through the Ashes of Empires, The Blackening, and Unto the Locust. The Blackening was an incredibly popular album that led to a Grammy Award nomination for the band. All in all, so far Machine Head has sold well over 3 million records across the globe and counting.


Machine Head Breakthrough

The first breakthrough was making it work in the European market and making it onto the living rooms and bedrooms of fans eagerly watching Headbangers Ball. The first album Burn My Eyes was one of the top selling albums for the label Roadrunner Records. Machine Head was afforded the opportunity to travel Europe touring with Slayer, after the release of their debut album. The second album The More Things Change was released at the end of the 1990s and made it on the Billboard 200 chart at the 138 spot. In spite of some changes to the band's lineup during the European tours, it didn't stop the band. The third studio album The Burning Red contained different musical elements than previously noted on the former albums, like rap vocals. While this particular album was highly criticized by hardcore fans who claimed the band was not staying true to its sound. At the same time, Burning Red made it to the 88 spot on the Billboard 200 and led to the adopting of new fans. When the band released The Blackening, Machine Head finally found itself closer to the top of the Billboard 200 at 53. This album garnered a lot of positive enthusiasm from critics. Overall, The Blackening was an advanced breakthrough for the band.


Machine Head Trivia

Many people have speculated that the name of Machine Head might be a reference the record by the same name by Deep Purple. According to Robb Flynn, the reason the band was named Machine Head is simply because he thought that the name sounded cool and the others did not disagree. Many of the songs were discussing the previous frustrations from dealing with the issues as part of their former band Vio-lence and even dealt with the struggles with drugs. It is a good thing they decided to leave Vio-lence to form Machine Head, as it led to an incredibly fruitful career.


Machine Head Live Show

Someone once referred to Machine Head as a mix between Pantera and Alice and Chains. The live show for Machine Head is definitely a crowd ready to rock out to these band music styles coming together. It is an excellent and fun time. Be sure to get your tickets now to rock out to Machine Head live.
