Machine Head

Machine Head is an American metal band, formed in 1992 in Oakland, California.

Founded by singer and guitarist Robb Flynn and bassist Adam Duce, the band has been plagued by lineup changes since its inception.

The current lineup of the band comprises Flynn (vocals, guitar), Duce, Phil Demmel, and Dave McClain Machine Head is one of the pioneering bands in the New Wave of American Heavy Metal.

Machine Head was formed by ex-Vio-lence member Robb Flynn.

Flynn felt musically unfulfilled and requested to start a side project.

When he was told he couldn't, he left the band and formed Machine Head in 1992 with Adam Duce, Logan Mader and Chris Kontos.

Though the band's first album, Burn My Eyes, was a big success, Machine Head later had albums that earned the band criticism for "selling out".

The band nearly disbanded in 2002 after its label, Roadrunner Records, dropped them from the roster due to poor album sales and controversy.

The band resigned with Roadrunner soon after and have released two albums since then.

In 2007, the band released The Blackening, which was seen as a return to form and earned Machine Head its first Grammy Award nomination.
