Editorial Reviews

To witness the Machine Head live experience is to understand both the band's unique internal chemistry and the undeniable bond they share with their audience that has been honed and strengthened through nearly seven years of non-stop worldwide touring. Touted by many as the best live band in metal, favorites from their debut, Burn My Eyes and their latest, Through The Ashes of Empires, typically find the band fighting to be heard over the din of the singing crowd and the raging pit. The Elegies DVD captures that primal experience on film, transporting the viewer to the sold-out 5,000+ Brixton Academy in London. Complete with a full 90-minute concert covering all of the band's best ('Davidian', 'Ten Ton Hammer', 'The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears', 'Imperium'), Elegies is the definitive Machine Head live document. Jam-packed with bonus footage including videos, behind-the-scenes footage and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best music dvds I own!!! October 18, 2005
Along with LOG 'Killadelphia',Primus 'Hallucino-Genetics' and Slayers 'Reign In Blood', 'Elegies' uncovers Machine Heads passion, to rock out live! And what a show this is. The sound is amazing and their performance is epic. They couldn't have pick a better set list, many favorites old and new. The interviews are priceless. What a turbulent time MH went through in the past 3 Three videos along with the 'making of'. But I have to say the one thing that really impressed me was Robert Flynn's persona and the way he feels about the fans. And ofcourse when he is on stage. I really never realized how great of a front man he is..........spectacular. 5 Big Stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Machine Head's first live DVD June 28, 2005
My friends, this is Machine Head's first ever live DVD, entitled Elegies. It was filmed live on December 8, 2004 at Brixton Academy in London, England. At first I was a little pissed off because it was reported that their 10th Anniversity Burn My Eyes show where they played that seminal album in its entirety live would also be part of this DVD release, but this will not be the case. Now I can understand that they would not want to be seen as ripping off Slayer's idea. This setlist is as follows,

01. Intro

02. Imperium

03. Seasons Wither

04. Bulldozer

05. Old

06. Days Turn Blue to Gray

07. The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears

08. Ten Ton Hammer

09. The Burning Red

10. In the Presence of My Enemies

11. Take My Scars

12. Descend the Shades of Night

13. Davidian

14. Covers Medley

15. Block

I know that this DVD will kick major ass especially with the medley covers of Pantera, Sepultura, and Metallica songs near the end. I have space next Slayer's Still Reigning and Lamb of God's Killadelphia DVDs on my shelf for this baby.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate Machine Head package all on one disc October 11, 2005
By Michael
Like Lamb Of God and Soulfly, MH have managed to put together the dvd of 2005 that does not disappoint. A full scale performance from the Brixton Academy in London that you can watch by it's self or with the documentary footage included, plus The Making Of Through The Ashes Of Empires. Now, although it would have been nice to get all of their music videos including the ones from Burn My Eyes and The More Things Change..., but the three included on this dvd will do. Not only that, but there's even behind the scenes extras for each video. Not bad at all.

I have never known MH to disappoint, and Robert Flynn knows how to do things right. You'll be impressed. Check it out.

Most Machine Head fans have been longing for a live DVD release for sometime now. With the exeption of the expected quarreling over the set list that will likely arouse from certain far as quality, content, and performance goes there should be no complaints. Heres a rundown of what you get for your buck:

Full live show recorded at London's Brixton Academy in December 2004 in front of a sold-out 5000+ capacity crowd.

Set List-

From Burn My Eyes -




From The More Things Change -

Ten Ton Hammer

Take My Scars

From The Burning Red -

The Burning Red

The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears

From Supercharger -


From Through the Ashes of Empires -


Seasons Wither

Days Turn Blue to Grey

In the Presence of my Enemies

Descend the Shades of Night

You also get two mini-documentaries within the live show that focus on "Life on the Road" and "The Fans".

Theres also a Full length documentary of "The Making of Through the Ashes of Empires" which details Machine Head's struggle from the release of "Supercharger" to parting ways with Roadrunner Records, to trying to get on with another label, to being forced to come up with a "radio freindly" demo, to going to Europe to start over, to self financing and producing their new album and their triumphant return to form.

You also get three music videos from "Hellalive" and "Through the Ashes..":


The Blood, The Sweat, the Tears (live)

Days Turn Blue to Gray

All 3 videos come with a "Making Of.." Documentary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing DVD!! November 15, 2005
Pros: The best live metal performance/recording I've ever seen. Slipknot is nothing compared to these guys.

Cons: Wish there was more 'Behind the Scenes'.

What do you name yourself when you are the best Live Metal Band...Machine Head! This live performance captures one of our truly top metal acts....CLEAR, LIVE, and INSPIRATIONAL. Oh yea, "LIVE" meant something moderately interesting and diverse before this...It is now redefined by this great band. Clearly THE BEST display of what a heavy, live performance should be.

If you have not seen them, then this is the next best thing.

A MUST for ANY fan of heavy music...Period

5.0 out of 5 stars The best live metal/rock band ever! December 26, 2005
I never liked Machine Head before I bought this DVD. It was a gift for my husband who loves them. Since watching this, I now understand why. They are the most amazing live metal/rock band in the world. If you listen to the CD and then watch the DVD, you can't tell any difference between the two other than the thousands of screaming fans. I have so much respect for all of them as musicians and performance artists. Aside from the live footage, the extra material is also awesome. You'll see the band tell their story in their own words. There are also a couple music videos included. Overall it is definantly worth every penny!

5.0 out of 5 stars rock classic
It grasps a not-in-a-rock viewer with energy and professionalism of performance if even, unlike Iggy Pop, musicians rather lowered marks by
approaching full-monty on a podium.

The video editing and lighting on this show is sub-par. You never see the same shot for more than 2 sec, so it seems kinda choppy. Read more
