Machine Head has been on a steady and well-earned ascent for the better part of a decade. From their recent Grammy nomination to being hand-picked to open for Metallica in both the U.S. and Europe for a six month stretch, Machine Head's record sales and tour numbers continue to grow.
Itís hard to nail down exactly why this is. As is so often the case, it is a culmination of a number of intangibles, the most prevalent of which is their unswerving integrity to stay true to themselves. Machine Head doesn't compromise. They write the music they love and love to play and deliver it live on an unparalleled level.
Lead vocalist Robb Flynn chalks it up to the band's willingness to take risks. "People have respected all of the musical risks we have taken, maybe a little confusing at first, but each allowed us to expand our horizons. Itís not something every band does. People respect when you make courageous moves like that."
