Recently the band sat down and re-visited and discussed the album for the first time in over 2 decades. This often hilarious conversation sees them trying to remember where they wrote the songs on their debut album, discussing how they got together back in 1992, and the time they set off the smoke alarms in the Fantasy recording studio from smoking so much weed.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Truth be told, over the early years I never followed Machine Head and only managed to begin following them when they were on Roadrunner Records and delivered “The Blackening”. I know it makes me a latecomer but I’ve always maintained that its never too late to appreciate something and that makes me say congratulations on 25 years of one of your pivotal albums. I didn’t catch any of the most recent US Tour jaunts based on other items being scheduled first but when they come back I will be sure to try and be on point since there are also different members in the lineup that make it all the more interesting to me. What do you readers think of the special appearance news and Machine Head themselves for that matter. Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time.
