Influential West Coast heavy metal quartet Machine Head formed in 1992 around the talents of ex-Vio-lence guitarplayersRobert Flynn and Phil Demmel, bass player Adam Duce, and drummer Chris Kontos. Their D.I.Y. work ethic, aggressiveplaying,and relentless self-promotion eventually landed them a deal with Roadrunner Records, a relationship that would extendall theway through 2005. Their blistering debut, 1992's Burn My Eyes, blended the powerful, modern attack of Pantera andAlice inChains with the volatility of classic thrash bands like Death Angel and Slayer, earning them a huge European following.Therecord 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 bandblendingspeed and progressive metal with dizzying results. The excessive touring and high-octane lifestyle took its toll on thegroup,but the bandmembers fought through their demons on 1999's Burning Red, resulting in the hit "From This Day," theirfirstcommercial single and video. Supercharger was released in 2001, followed by the concert album Hellalive and thecriticallylauded Through the Ashes of Empires in 2003. The DVD Elegies arrived in 2005, followed by 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 onanew album. Produced by Flynn himself, the band released its seventh album, Unto the Locust, in 2011. The band returnedthefollowing year with the enthusiastically titled live album Machine F**king Head Live! « hide
