Don’t let the bastards grind you down is the catch-cry from Machine Head this year. It pissed some people off and inspire others.
Apart from dropping a new album at the start of the year, Machine Head’s back catalogue features heavily in my life.
And Robb Flynn’s vocals are an acquired taste as he merges aggressive throat breaking barks to soaring melodic passages. It’s a voice built from his lifestyle. No one else can mimic it.
Thanks for the music and even though 2018 ends a bit uncertain for the band with two members leaving, I am sure Robb Flynn will go on and deliver a stellar Machine Head album.
The world is watching. New drummers and guitarists are waiting to join. It’s up to you.
