    This Machine Head tribute band are pretty damn good...



    Jokes aside, we all know Machine Head suck, and this revamped original lineup thing has been tried a million times by bands to regain popularity after years of a waning career, but.... you can't ignore how good this is. In terms of performance and production, I mean. It truly is very well done, and for that I can't do anything but give them credit.

    Also Kontos is fucking killing it. I love McClain, one of my favourite drummers ever, but Kontos is bringing the heavy groove so hard in this, it's sick

    I saw the davidian one and thought the same but for the love of fuck cant Logan Madder tell Rob Flynn to stop painting his nails like a fucking 14 year old korn fan.

    I never thought that was anything but cringe even when I was a 14 year old Korn fan....

    I've always loved Kontos in this band, there's something about the way he hits a snare that sounds ridiculously heavy. I put him in the same camp as Gene Hoglan & Igor Cavalera, drummers that just have an X factor in their playing which you can't re-create.

    Seen them tons since the 90's but never with him, earliest was Donington 95 in the transition between him and McClain, they had the guy from Madball standing in who didn't really cut it. Already have my tickets for Brixton.

    Yep, hoping he isn't going to try and mould the re-union into the 'Robb and the Rhinestones' schtick he's been pulling for the last few years.

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    That's awful. Sounds awful, played awful (out of time in some spots), and is a shite song. Like some 50-somethings got together in a garage after work. Who's the dude with the sweet $400 Indo Ibanez? We've got a used one at the shop I can sell him.

    I'm 6 seconds in, and I've already seen the dirtiest dreads in my entire life, and a Mercyful Fate jersey that should have never existed, and 'd the fuck out

    So because a dude's got a hairstyle you're not fond of you can't appreciate what he's doing? Guy's like one of the best metal producers working today

    I don't hear anything particularly poorly executed either, tbh It's a solid performance for being completely live and close-mic'd. Most bands (and I truly mean most) really can't play their own material that tightly. I think the performance here is great, which is why I posted it.

    Just shows that you don't need a more expensive guitar to really play
