MACHINE HEAD's DEMMEL Talks To Metal's Best Guitarists In 'Ask The Artist' Segment

Phil Demmel of MACHINE HEAD is Jackson's man on the scene, hitting up metal shows around the world to talk with some of the best metal guitarists on the planet. In the inaugural edition of "Ask The Artist", Demmel finds out who their guitar heroes are. Check it out below.

"Machine Fucking Head Live", the new live album from MACHINE HEAD, sold 3,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. It's the band's second live effort; "Hellalive" came out in 2003.

MACHINE HEAD's most recent studio album, "Unto The Locust", sold more than 17,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 22 on The Billboard 200 chart — putting MACHINE HEAD in the Top 25 for the first time in the band's 17-year history.

"Machine Fucking Head Live" was recorded at various tour stops across the globe last year. It features songs from throughout the band's expansive catalog, including crowd favorites like "Imperium", "Aesthetics of Hate", "Locust", "Ten Ton Hammer", "This is the End" and "Halo".

"Machine Fucking Head Live" was mixed and mastered at Trident Studios in Pacheco, California by Juan Urteaga and Robb Flynn.

Flynn underwent successful surgery on November 14 at Fairview Southdale Hospital in Edina, Minnesota to repair his double inguinal hernia. He has since returned home to California to recover, rest and recuperate. The band will rejoin the tour in Portland, Oregon on November 24.

MACHINE HEAD is currently seeking a new label home following the expiration of the band's contract with longtime record company Roadrunner Records.
