Seems Joel McIver is writing a book about MH called "Into The Machine",due for release in October. Have a couple of his books about Metallica and Cliff Burton and i like his style so really looking forward to this.

Will also check them out at download me thinks the clash with opeth is appalling though but after goin to the recent Olympia show and watchin the rock am ring set posted here the choice will more than likely be mh.

Been listening to a lot of Evile since the gig last week.

Thought the sound was really good when they were on. Donno who does Machine Heads sound at the gigs. They almost always get it wrong.

Saying that it was a million times better than the last one in the Olympia.

Newly released video for "Darkness Within"

Linky

Edit: Should have probably stuck a NSFW tag on there too.

Great video. I normally pay no attention to music videos these days but that was well worth checking out.

Absolutely, sound was abysmal when they played support to Slayer in the SFX back in 1994.

Olympia gig in 2010 was awful soundwise as well, had tinnitis for days afterwards!

Has anyone picked up a copy of the new live album yet? Reviews for it have been pretty good.

I had a bad introduction to Machine Head - Supercharger - I remember hearing that album and thinking I was going to need new ears....Crashing Around You had it's charms but when I saw the video (I don't like Iron Maiden) it put me off

On my 18th my brother bought me Hellalive, which had just been released that month, and it became my bible. I'd been into Metallica and the likes (I was actually going to see Metallica that August, my ticket was my 18th present) but there was something about Machine Head - tracks like I'm Your God Now and The Burning Red - that I enjoyed so much....I just started to learn more and more about their music from this particular live album

A few months after Metallica I saw Machine Head for the first time, I actually found out about the gig before it had been announced on the bands website, buying my ticket (for about 30 Euro if memory serves me) to see them on Halloween night - or near enough - in the Ambassador. I also got their new album, at the time, a few days after that gig and just couldn't get enough of them. I also remember that week because it was the week I got my first college job, started working in a cinema.

Since that I saw Machine Head several times, in 2009 I saw them perform with Metallica and The Sword on the UK Death Magnetic tour twice, and I met and interviewed Phil as well. I remember the interview being in the canteen and Rob Flynn just sticking his head through the door and saying something like "has anyone seen Adam?" to which we all just shook our heads and then he took off again....surreal, especially because James Hetfield was getting his roast dinner next to him

In February 2010 I saw Machine Head again with Bleeding Through, Hatebreed and Rise to Remain...I interviewed Phil again and met the whole band that night, they were in this tiny dressing room and Dave was sitting next to me on his laptop while I was interviewing Phil....very very strange day....

Yeah I've been a fan of that band almost as long as I've been a fan of Metal, they are the "People's Metal Band" and I would also consider them my Generation's Pantera...even though they are probably also considered this generation's Pantera...and have been around nearly long enough to actually be Pantera.

The only thing that ticks me off about Machine Head is their constant reinvention, I find it frustrating (and I've only been a fan of the band since 2003) so I would imagine that any long term fans - who maybe saw them open for Slayer in the Ambassador in 1994 - just can't believe this is the same band. In some ways it is and in some ways it isn't, Machine Head have managed to stay constant and fresh for whatever generation that comes. And while that shouldn't be critical, I prefer on a personal level for my bands to grow with me, or mature with time...so that I feel as if they're on a personal journey too...with Machine Head I feel the fans are getting younger and younger and I'm just getting older lol

But a great, great band....taped this in 2010....
