After successfully unleashing their signature brand of thrash and groove metal throughout Europe, Machine Head are ready to unleash the locusts in the North American leg of 'The Eighth Plague' tour. The band will be joined on the road by deathcore act Suicide Silence and metalcore outfit Darkest Hour.
The 'Rock of Love' bus may still be parked for Bret Michaels, but Machine Head guitarist Phil Demmel and Bleeding Through keyboardist Marta Peterson are on the road to marriage. According to Blabbermouth, the Machine Head guitarist just revealed via his personal Facebook page that he and Peterson are officially engaged.
'Tis the season of metal-inspired Christmas light shows and we've got another one to cram under your tree. We recently posted suburban light shows for Slayer's 'Raining Blood' and Metallica's 'Enter Sandman,' so to continue this new holiday tradition, we give you Machine Head's classic track 'Impirium.'
Metal music has the power to possess people into doing things that don't particularly make sense -- notably, the shoe toss. In the heat of the moment, concertgoers risk getting their feet stomped into oblivion just so they can throw their shoes at their favorite band. Machine Head guitarist Phil Demmel recently found himself at the receiving end of a shoe toss in Belgium -- walking off the stage after a blow to the head.
Machine Head have just released their music video for 'Locust,' the first single from their seventh full-length album 'Unto the Locust.' The video depicts the band thrashing as a swarm of locusts unleash havoc upon a city. Of course as ordinary citizens run for their lives, Machine Head don't let the infestation phase them as they watch the city succumb to the plague.
