Robb Flynn: “Machine Head was going to stand or fail on its own merits”
In this month’s issue of Terrorizer, we celebrate and remember Machine Head‘s classic breakthrough album ‘Burn My Eyes’ ahead of their headlining show at Bloodstock on August 11 where the band will play five songs from the album chosen by fans.
Reminiscing about the beginning of Machine Head, after he left his previous band Vio-lence, frontman Robb was determined to power through and make Machine Head a success.
“It was a pretty intense time. I was really pissed off, and I’d just left my previous band [Vio-lence]. I vowed to never look back, basically. It ended on a bad note. I basically decided from then on, nothing would say “featuring Robb Flynn”. Nothing. No advertisement, no demo, no album, no show flier, no anything. Machine Head was going to stand or fail on its own merits. Yeah, I had a pretty big chip on my shoulder.”
Well, we think it safe to say Machine Head stood firmly.
Grab a copy of the latest issue of Terrorizer and read the full feature and find out what Robb says about working with producer Colin Richardson, what inspired the artwork of ‘Burn My Eyes’ and why he slept with a knife under his pillow.
