“9/10. The mainstream side of heavy metal has been in serious need of a swift kick in the pants for a while, and MACHINE HEAD are so needed these days because few other popular musicians are able to combine songwriting, vitriol-fueled energy and eloquence.”- Decibel Magazine …wise words taken from the latest issue of Decibel Magazine this month. The same issue that accurately makes this statement features Robb Flynn, the legendary frontman of the Bay Area Metal Titans, on the cover. Comments Flynn, “I am honored, stoked, and quite frankly SHOCKED to have my ugly mug on the cover of Decibel Magazine this month. I think Decibel stopped just-short of calling-for-my-death at one point!! So fuckin’ A, this is a pretty cool moment!!” “I’d also like to thank Decibel magazine for being the first AMERICAN magazine in 15 FUCKING YEARS, that had the balls to give MACHINE HEAD a cover story, kudos to Albert Mudrian and co.” Fans can purchase their copy of the issue here: http://store.decibelmagazine.com/collections/back-issues/products/december-2014-122.
