After forming the band Machine Head in 1991, Robb Flynn and Adam Duce propelled their creation into the spotlight with their crushing riffs and mesmerizing drum arrangements. They were received with widespread acclaim for their first album release and toured extensively throughout Europe for nearly two years after its release. Their biggest success in the US came a few years later, and they have been consistently hitting the charts with each subsequent offering they produce. Their influence can be heard throughout modern thrash and heavy metal by listening to groups like Godsmack and even a song by the incomparable Metallica. A lot of performers owe their success to what Flynn himself describes as his "barking in key" because it inspired an entire generation of metal band hits reaching far into the music scene.
Inspiration in the Making
Since their beginning in Oakland, CA, Machine Head concerts have been pushing the boundaries of their genre with exploratory forays into different vocal rhythms and guitar tones. They have been a reliable staple of metal venues and festivals worldwide for nearly three decades of scorching chords and legendary percussion designs. The band has gone through some changes to its members, but they always deliver a fresh taste of something new that feels familiar yet unknown and edgy. Their innovations and powerful ballads behind the amp have garnered them a long list of awards and recognition across the world, including a Grammy Award nomination for Aesthetics Of Hate. Heavy Metal fans agree they are a visceral force on stage and integral to the rock scene developing the diversified sound it has grown into today.
