Machine Head is a Groove/Thrash band from Oakland, California. The reason I put them in the Alternative Metal Forum is due to their various style changes. Their first album "Burn My Eyes", was a groove/thrash album released in 1994. Their next 3 albums are considered Nu-Metal/Mallcore. In 2004, they released "Through the Ashes of Empires", which was a return to their original groove/thrash sound. Lead singer and guitar player Robb Flynn has what seems to be an unresolved feud with Kerry King of Slayer. You can read the details here- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robb_Flynn

Let me know what you think of them and which albums you like. I myself only listen to Burn My Eyes and Through the Ashes of Empires, great albums...both.

I can't really call them thrash, although some of their songs do show elements. "Power groove" as they call themselves... is actually pretty accurate.

Yeah i always confused about their genre "Thrash" or "Thrash Groove" but though i always called them the kings of thrash, they never sucked, well they sucked the first albums without Phil...

I saw them live for the second time (I guess you could call that a second time) last night. They cemented my belief that they are one of the absolute best live bands in all metal.
