Machine Head

One thing that really set Machine Head apart from the nu-metal wave that flooded the early aughts, was they always had more of a traditional metal edge to them than their counterparts. On “Ten Ton Hammer” for instance, the opening track from 1997’s The More Things Change…, the Oakland quartet open with a groove-heavy breakdown similar to bands like Throwdown or Hatebreed but with sung vocals to match the intensity of the verse and chorus. The combination sort of sounds like a second generation of Pantera. It is a little weird that they got lumped into radio playlists alongside bands like Korn, and Limp Bizkit since their catalog reflected more straightforward metal tracks contrast to the genre-bending and experimental exploration of numerous bands in the genre.
