San Francisco Bay Area metallers MACHINE HEAD will release a new live album, “Machine Fucking Head Live”, on November 13 via Roadrunner Records. It’s the band’s second live effort — “Hellalive” was released in 2003 — but in the nine years that have passed, the group has only gained in power; MACHINE HEAD still slay and administer a beating in the live realm.
“Machine Fucking Head Live” was recorded at various tour stops across the globe last year. It features songs from throughout the band’s expansive catalog, including crowd favorites like “Imperium”, “Aesthetics of Hate”, “Locust”, “Ten Ton Hammer”, “This is the End” and “Halo”.
“The Head Cases [MACHINE HEAD‘s nickname for the band’s fans] have been so intense on this tour cycle that we had to start capturing the shows, especially with technology making it so much easier to record,” said frontman Robb Flynn. “We culled some of the best nights where the band and crowd were on fire and made a badass, nearly two-hour, double live album, which is a great documentation of where the band is at, 18 years deep.”
