Description

Over 17 years and eight albums, heavy metal band Machine Head have sold millions of units, earned a Grammy nomination and won personal awards from Metal Hammer and other magazines.

The story is a classic rise, fall and rise again scenario -- they exploded onto the metal scene in 1994, enjoyed a successful string of albums and then lost their way in the nu-metal era.

Now they are in the middle of one of metal's most acclaimed comebacks.

Joel McIver has interviewed all the band-members several times and has a unique insight into their rollercoaster story, which includes alcohol addiction, inter-band brawls and therapy, sackings, near-splits and two decades of the heaviest music known to man, delivered all over the world.

Rating Review
Joel McIver speaks to @Blabbermouth: 'Inside The Machine' is an unauthorized book, but damn, I'm proud of it. I've interviewed Robb Flynn, Adam Duce, Phil Demmel and Dave McClain so many times over the years that a book had to be written sometime. The story of MACHINE HEAD's rise, fall and rise again is pretty much unprecedented in heavy music, and I've added first-hand detail to the story from interviews with band friends and associates. I've also taken a rather different approach to the band's catalogue. The usual approach that critics take is to dismiss MACHINE HEAD's late-90s and early-00s albums as watered-down nu-metal, which is a long way from the whole truth: if you're looking for a fresh viewpoint, you'll find it here."
