2003 - Through The Ashes Of Empires.
more MACHINE HEAD.
way more Helter Skelter.



October 27, 2003 - 2023: 20 years of: Through The Ashes Of Empires.

They're back.

Hail the new millennium, where a new-wave of fresh metal finally was upon us. Strong returns from EXODUS, ANTHRAX, ANNIHILATOR and the eventual JUDAS PRIEST rebirth. After both disappointing 1999's The Burning Red and 2001's Supercharger CDs ...the angst and rage were burning their eyes again. No more nümetal-flair and angrier than ever, MACHINE HEAD are back.

"Here me now..."

Sneaking in stealth-mode, "Imperium" suddenly explodes with high-gain modern-thrash. Violence and force attacks from all corners, as we "Bite The Bullet" and the final-fight approaches as you are "In The Presence Of My Enemies". Aural-devastation is an understatement !

Molten-metal hits every nerve on "Left Unfinished" and the new progressive ascensions of "All Falls Down". The band's new vibe spews venom, as they "Wipe The Tears". Never sounded so vile and never looking back, this return to form rings like a shotgun blast !

Also a mini-reunion, as guitarist Phil Demmel would join the fold, re-animating 40% of the classic VIO-LENCE line-up. The Bay-Area is alive.

Fully self-produced, these ten ton soundwaves re-ignited the interests of Roadrunner Records who then made sure this lethal-metal was in every metalhead's playlist. With no Stop-sign ahead, the band would strike again with 2007's The Blackening CD.
