Undisputed masters of murderous riffs, pugnacious grooves and ferocious hooks since 1991, Machine Head are long established as one of the most influential and incendiary bands in the metal world. Exploding into the world’s consciousness with 1994’s seminal “Burn My Eyes” album, the now legendary Oakland crew brutishly redefined what it meant to be heavy, incorporating a wild array of influences into some of the sharpest and most brutal metal anthems ever written. Nearly three decades later, Machine Head has amassed an extraordinary catalog of classic albums – including the all-conquering might of 2007’s “The Blackening”, which saw the band traverse the globe several times as headliners and as main support to both Metallica and Slipknot. In 2022, Machine Head are back with their most crushing and complete album yet. “Of Kingdom And Crown” is an hour-long conceptual monolith, rich in color and dynamics but hell-bent on destruction.
