Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn recently took a shot at Avenged Sevenfold, claiming that the band lifted hooks from prominent metal bands for their 2013 album, 'Hail to the King,' which Flynn also called a "covers album." Now, Machine Head are suggesting that Avenged Sevenfold have stolen something from them, as well.
The thrash / groove hybrid Machine Head are currently working on their follow-up to 2011's mammoth album 'Unto the Locust.' The highly anticipated album has fans hoping the band will continue their hot streak that began with 'The Blackening,' which earned Machine Head their first Grammy nomination.
Earlier this week, Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn slammed Avenged Sevenfold and their new album 'Hail to the King.' Calling 'Hail to the King' a "covers album," Flynn channeled his inner David Letterman to construct a Top 10 list of jokes about Avenged Sevenfold's latest record, in the process accusing A7X of "blatant jackery" of Metallica, Megadeth and Guns N' Roses songs. Having seen the list, Avenged vocalist M. Shadows has offered a retort in Flynn's direction.
Avenged Sevenfold stormed to the top of the Billboard 200 album chart with their latest full-length disc, 'Hail to the King.' The rabid dedication of Avenged Sevenfold fans has shown itself once again, but not everyone is raising their voice to congratulate the hard rock / heavy metal act on their No. 1 album. In fact, Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn wrote a lengthy, highly critical and pretty amusing article on Avenged Sevenfold's "blatant jackery" of material from other acts.
Connecticut got rocked this past weekend as one of the summer’s biggest metal tours made a stop in Hartford. Fans kicked up some serious dirt while moshing outside in the lot of the Comcast Theater and rocking to the numerous band that graced the Jagermeister Stage.
Machine Head have found their new bassist! After the group parted ways with longtime bassist Adam Duce, Machine Head allowed the public to audition for a chance to act as the band's touring bassist for the entire duration of the 2013 Mayhem Festival. After months of searching, bassist Jared MacEachern has finally been given the gig.
Machine Head are working on new music, but it's a steady pace as the band has yet to name their replacement for longtime bassist Adam Duce. Frontman Robb Flynn spoke at length about their current progress in his latest online journal entry and also revealed that the search for a new bassist has been narrowed to eight.
