Machine Head Sidewave Featuring Chimaira, Shadows Fall And Times Of Grace

“All hail Machine fucking Head.” – Metal Hammer

Forget what you know about heavy metal. Masters of their craft, Machine Head have been redefining the genre for the better part of 15 years since their breakthrough classic ‘ Burn My Eyes’ blazed a path for all to follow.

In 2007 they created a masterpiece of modern metal, ‘The Blackening’ and delivered the knockout blow to the rest of the metal world. Critics and fans alike agreed that this was one of the purest, finest, most powerful expressions of modern heavy metal released.

Four years since the epic success of “The Blackening”, the Machine Head studio album “Unto The Locust” was released in June this year. It is simply their most innovative and ambitious offering to date displaying punishing brutality with Metal Hammer declaring ‘the album is a storm of complex arrangements and riffs, compiled by musicians who have gained absolute command of their vision. It’s breathtaking work.”

Machine Head will be playing two headline sidewaves in Melbourne & Sydney with a brutal lineup featuring some of metals finest.

Chimaira are proof the old adage what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger. This is nowhere more evident than their monstrous new album ‘The Age of Hell’ a record fraught with adversity and triumph. It showcases Chimaira at their unrelenting and brutal best with Metal Underground declaring it a ‘A modern American metal classic’.

Adding to this bill of metal titans is Massachusetts finest, Shadow Fall. Combining honest integrity and violent brutality into one frightening package, they continue to push the boundaries with their mix of bone-splintering aggression and melodic nuance.

Times Of Grace sees original Killswitch Engage front man Jesse leech team of up with current guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz. Their debut offering ‘The Hymn Of A Broken Man’ explores the depths of human misery with artful desperation, heavy aggression and gorgeous melody. TIMES OF GRACE ignore genre parameters and forge its own beat. With imagery that engages the mind and soul, the pair has created a bold entity for the ages.
