Machinehead were a serious kick up the arse for everyone.  This band were really heavy and the debut album Burn My Eyes was a monster.  I think Machinehead actually deserve a lot more success than they have had.  Pound for pound they are one of the best Metal bands around in the last 20 years.  It’s seriously heavy but still retains that riffing rock melody that stops it just becoming an atonal mess.  The bottom line is that the songs are good, very fucking good.

Davidian is based on the story of David Koresh and the Branch Davidian cult that holed up in Waco and got the shit shot out of themselves for their troubles. It’s a great track and like all classic metal anthems it has that killer hook that causes 20 000 headbangers to scream back at you live ”Let freedom ring with a shotgun blast” \m/
