Machine Head Old Band Photo

When Oakland’s Machine Head burst onto the scene in 1994, their debut album Burn My Eyes helped breathe life back into a floundering thrash metal scene. Along with Pantera, Machine Head would carry the torch of metal through much of the ’90s.

After a two album diversion into nu metal territory around the turn of the millennium and several lineup changes, Machine Head would return to their original course and go on to be one of the biggest bands, not only in thrash, but metal overall. Machine Head are set to release their eighth studio album Bloodstone & Diamonds on November 10th via Nuclear Blast Records and, based on the advance tracks, it may be one of the best albums of the year.

Here with the opening track of Burn My Eyes is Machine Head with the official video for “Davidian.” It is a song that Machine Head leader Robb Flynn wrote about a violent confrontation with an Oakland street gang, framed against the events that had just unfolded in Waco with David Koresh and his Branch Davidian compound.

Watch the official video for “Davidian” here below.

Machine Head is set to release their 8th album, Bloodstone & Diamonds (their first for Nuclear Blast Entertainment), on Nov 7th in Europe and Nov 10th in the U.S. and UK, but apparently their is still some work to be done in order to meet those dates.

Still no word on a release date, but at least Machine Head has finally given us the title and artwork for their highly anticipated new album. The follow-up to their 2011 monster hit Unto The Locust is to be titled Bloodstone and Diamonds.

The album will be the first to feature new bassist Jared MacEachern. The band split very publicly and acrimoniously with founding bassist Adam Duce and have been embroiled in a nasty lawsuit with him that was recently settled out of court on undisclosed terms.

Machine Head: Inside the MachineMachine Head: Inside the Machine
By Joel McIver
Omnibus Press
Release Date: April 1, 2013 (U.S. | Kindle Edition)
Available now (UK)

It’s easy to forget Machine Head has been going for over 20 years. The past five years has seen them hit a creative boon with their two finest albums one after the other: Metallica-approved The Blackening and last year’s astonishing Unto The Locust. Many of their contemporaries burst on to the scene in the 1980s then struggled to maintain what they started with. Ten years down the line many of those same acts failed to recapture that early magic and fell into the great metal chasm. Whereas Machine Head only improved with age.

British author Joel McIver has written books about almost every metal icon: from Slipknot to Slayer, Motorhead to Tool, with Metallica and Black Sabbath to boot. His latest work, Machine Head: Inside the Machine, is an interesting, honest and completely open account of the life of Machine Head.
