How do you create a masterpiece of modern metal? Is it a conscious effort on the part of the artists or is it something more organic – a confluence of events and moods, emotions and mechanics that all come together in the right place at the right time? That’s the question that comes to mind upon the first listen to Machine Head’s sixth studio album The Blackening. Guitars ... Read more in Amazon's Machine Head Store

Editorial Reviews

Capturing the brutal majesty of Oakland metal veterans Machine Head, performers at London's Brixton Academy back in 2001, Hellalive provides a fine opportunity to take a look at the career of one of heavy rock's most underappreciated acts. While Machine Head have never been able to top their fantastic debut, 1994's Burn My Eyes, here they serve up totally blistering takes on the brooding "I’m Your God Now," the pogo thrasher "Old," and the Ministry-style jackhammer "Davidian." "The Blood, the Sweat, the Tears" carries the gruesome, thick heaviness of Pantera like a torch. And on "Crashing Around You," frontman Rob Flynn launches into a chilling spoken introduction that broadens into an anthem to the gray, dispossessed ranks of old-school heavy-metal. "I used to think I was the only weirdo in the world that has thoughts like this," he remarks. "But now I know I'm not alone." --Louis Pattison

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for any MH fan March 31, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Machine Head have been known for their live show. Even though most bands claim that is their fortay, when it comes to MH - they really mean it. This cd is a perfect example of why they have gained such notority over the years. They mix in the old with the new and blend them both together with their patented live style. If you have liked MH at any point in time, this cd is a must have! You can't make a better live cd!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatness February 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This cd is the first live cd i have ever purchased, and i must say it is great. I havent listened to Machine Head long maybe 4-5 years. This is in my opinion one of their greater cd's. I would also reccommend this to a new fan so they can truly appreciate how great Machine Head is withought all the studio equipment.

5.0 out of 5 stars pleasantly surprising,but not without flaws April 6, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I wrote a review for this a while ago, but after seeing MH live I have defenitely changed my mind. The setlist on this album leaves alot to be desired, but the production is more than adequate... and songs like davidian are still the baseball bat to the face they were in 1994 on burn my eyes.

I guess my only real problem with this album, is the presence of anything from supercharger, and to a lesser extent the burning red.

This does the live show aboslutely no justice, believe me machine head are 100 times more pissed off and hungry in person than on here.

I cant change the rating, or else id give it three stars... but this is still pretty cool, like if you want to hear none but my own but dont have burn my eyes (shame on both of us)

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This live cd has all solid performances of some great Machine Head songs. Some notable tracks are 'Ten ton hammer', 'Old', 'I'm your god now', 'The blood, the sweat, the tears', 'Davidian', and 'Take my scars'. Though obvious overdubs in the recording are evident, and Robb Flynn admits to it, its probably overall the best live show Machine Head could put onto cd. The most outstanding performances are definitely 'None but my own' and 'The Burning Red' (2 extra tracks from a 2002 show, thankfully without the [weak]novice guitarist ahrue luster.) I saw a Machine Head show in New york city and Luster was so painfully horrible. His guitar kept on getting unplugged from the amps as he was bouncing around the stage like a fool, and it always took their crew a disturbingly long time to get him plugged back in. Not to mention his style [is weak], and he couldn't play a solo to save his life. Robb did all the solos. I miss Logan Maders loud, powerful, heavy guitar work.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's all about the blood, the sweat, the tears!!! March 12, 2003
By Michael
Format:Audio CD
The first official live album from Machine Head, mixed by Colin Richardson (Cannibal Corpse, Fear Factory, Napalm Death), is one of the best live recordings you'll ever hear on cd. Fans of Burn My Eyes and The More Things Change.... will probably hate the more recent stuff they've put out and will know that the music here was recorded back in 2001 and 2002, but don't judge this live album just on that. Know that these guys live for playing live, and that this is a testament to that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Awesome March 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Being the dedicated Machine Head fan that I am I had to go out and grab this cd right away. Even if it was a live album. I'm usually not a big fan of live discs but I must say that this one totally blew me away. I know a lot of people have been unhappy with the way Machine Head has progressed musically. I on the other hand love everything they have done. The aren't as metal as they used to be but I feel everything they have done still rocks hard. I have seen them live once and they were awesome but I wasn't completely dazzled. Everything in this album is played to perfection and Rob shows off his skills as a frontman very well. He knows how to play the crowd and has the perfect live persona. Even for those of you who prefer the older material will love this due to the fact that they all sound like they came off the first two albums and are all very heavy. The standout tracks are "Take My Scars", "From This Day" and "Crashing Around You". Trust me you will not be dissapointed with this album. This is not only a thank you to the fans as Rob explains in the liner notes but also something for you to chew on until the next awesome Head cd comes out! Play it LOUD!

5.0 out of 5 stars A helluva good time! October 4, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Recorded at London's Brixton Academy, Machine Head's first live album, 2003's "Hellalive" is one raucous good time. Boiling over with enthusiasm (from both the band and audience) and impeccable musicianship, this 2001 recording powerfully captures Rob Flynn and Company doing what they do best: Kicking out relentlessly memorable thrash riffs and power-thrash grooves while the frontman delivers an unquestionably inspired performance behind the mic. And even though Machine Head might have benefitted from waiting a couple of years to record their first-ever live disc (after the release of 2004's excellent "Through The Ashes Of Empires"), the energy that flows throughout this caustic seventy-seven-minute-long set is unmistakable and super-infectious.

The album kicks off with "Bulldozer," which fades in with a wall of squealing guitar feedback before giving way to a propulsive, and very deft drum solo. And then, as if he really needs to ask, Robb Flynn poses the memorable question "are you ready to do this," just prior to his band settling into a thrashy groove with a fiery, chugging thrash riff, and remains there for the rest of the duration of this song. This is then followed up by "The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears," which boasts a huge, and really memorable, lumbering rhythm, grumbling bass lines, and Pantera-worthy grooves. And, of course, the tune's original anthemic, fist-pumping choruses are included, here, as well. And immediately following this, Flynn demands a powerful command of "Let me f'ing hear you" from the crowd, before flowing right into "Ten Ton Hammer," a song that is noteworthy for its bass work and clean, sing-songy vocals.

I, being a Machine Header since 1994, was disappointed by 2001's lackluster effort "Supercharger". I've never doubted the band's talent in spite of their lapse in creativity. Read more
