Still on the roll with their top-notch latest album, last year’s “Bloodstone & Diamonds,” metal behemoths Machine Head are set for a string of rocking live shows that will keep them busy until the end of the year.
From late August, the boys will be in Europe, kicking things off in Russia and Scandinavian region, only to battle their way south and rock the remainder of the old continent until early October.
After about one month of break, Robb Flynn and co. will switch to North American soil and rock the continent from early November until mid December. Notable stops include San Antonio, Fort Lauderdale, Portland, Indianapolis, and many more.
Note that the group is performing “An Evening With Machine Head” concerts on every stop, meaning that there are no opening acts, just two hours of pure MH hits from the past two decades, including songs from “Through the Ashes of Empires,” 2007’s “The Blackening,” and many more.

Led by frontman, vocalist and guitarist Robb Flynn as the only permanent member over the years, the group unleashed their debut album in 1994 under the title of “Burn My Eyes.”
Thanks to roaring singles “Davidian” and “Old,” the gang managed to garner the attention of heavy metal community, gain a solid fanbase and a reputation of a fresh force not to be reckoned with.
The metal tour de force continued with 1997’s “The More Things Change” and “Take My Scars” hit single, but what came next didn’t please a segment of the band’s fanbase. As the boys took a bit of a nu-metal detour with 1999’s “The Burning Red.”
But the numbers kept rising and the band scored big with a full-blown metal crush of 2003’s “Through the Ashes of Empires.” The band’s sound and style were fully crafted at this point and the thrashing could really begin.
This is what makes Machine Head stand out in many ways – not only are they known for top-quality concerts, but their output is basically on the constant rise in terms of quality. 2007’s “The Blackening,” 2011’s “Unto the Locust,” and 2014’s “Bloodstone & Diamonds” have all pleased metal fans with top-notch songs.
Despite constantly staying outside of mainstream, team MH has kept a cult following over the decades and their concerts remain very well attended and resected within the metal community. Their opus consists of eight studio albums, two live records, four EPs and 13 singles.
The current lineup of the band features Robb Flynn on lead vocals and guitar, Dave McClain on drums and percussion, Phil Demmel on guitar and backing vocals, and Jared MacEachern on bass guitar as the newest member of the fold.
