MACHINE HEAD Guitarist Joins CHANNEL ZERO On Stage In Brussels; Video Available

MACHINE HEAD guitarist Phil Demmel joined reunited Belgian metallers CHANNEL ZERO on stage on January 14, 2011 at the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels, Belgium. Fan-filmed video footage of his appearance can be viewed below (courtesy of dopeyspawn).

CHANNEL ZERO entered a Los Angeels-area studio on January 17 to begin recording its new album with producer Logan Mader (MACHINE HEAD, SOULFLY, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, DEVILDRIVER, GOJIRA). A tentative May release is expected.

CHANNEL ZERO in January 2010 released a new single, "Black Flowers", with the help of internationally acclaimed guitarist Mikey Doling (ex-SOULFLY, SNOT). You can purchase the track via iTunes at this location.

The band's current lineup includes original members Franky DSVD on vocals, Phil B on drums and Tino De Martino on bass.

Guitarist Xavier Carion was forced to sit out CHANNEL ZERO's reunion concerts because of an injured ear and is being replaced by Doling.

CHANNEL ZERO 2011 is:

Franky DSVD - Vocals
Phil B - Drums
Tino De Martino - Bass
Mikey Doling - Guitar

CHANNEL ZERO's third album, "Unsafe" (1995), was the band's first effort to be released internationally. The group followed it up by touring with MEGADETH, DANZIG, SPUDMONSTERS and BIOHAZARD, and embarking on an Australian headlining run. A fourth album, "Black Fuel", followed in 1996 but it failed to make a dent on international charts, leading to the band's split in 1997.

CHANNEL ZERO was one of the most popular homegrown metal acts in Belgium, where the band's albums reportedly sold upwards of 20,000 copies each.
