According to WZOR Razor 94.7, the rock radio station serving Green Bay, Appleton, and the surrounding communities in the Fox Valley and Northeast Wisconsin, MEGADETH and MACHINE HEAD will perform at The Rave in Milwaukee on Wednesday, November 11 as part of the "Endgame Tour". MEGADETH and MACHINE HEAD — along with SLAYER — are also rumored to be planning a Canadian East Coast run in November. It should be noted, however, that none of these tours have been officially confirmed by anyone associated with the aforementioned acts.MEGADETH's new album, "Endgame", is now being streamed in its entirety on the band's MySpace page. Due on September 15 via Roadrunner Records, "Endgame" was recorded at the band's brand new, self-built studio in San Marcos, California — Vic's Garage — which was named after the legendary and iconic Vic Rattlehead character. "Endgame" was helmed by MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine and British producer Andy Sneap (EXODUS, NEVERMORE, ARCH ENEMY, MACHINE HEAD).
MACHINE HEAD is continuing to tour in support of its Grammy-nominated album "The Blackening", which was re-released as a "special edition" last October via Roadrunner Records. Hailed unanimously as the best metal album of 2007 by journalists, metal radio stations and fans alike, "The Blackening" earned a Grammy nomination for the fan-favorite track "Aesthetics of Hate". "The Blackening Special Edition" is two-disc CD/DVD set that features an assortment of extras, including rare bonus tracks such as covers of IRON MAIDEN's "Hallowed Be Thy Name", over an hour of live performance footage from With Full Force, Download and Rock in Rio festivals, three uncensored music videos for "Aesthetics of Hate", "Now I Lay Thee Down" and "Halo", a "making-of" featurette on each video, "The Making of The Blackening" and expanded artwork. There's also what many hardcore fans have been rabidly waiting for: four never-before-seen performances of MACHINE HEAD celebrating the 10th anniversary of their debut album, "Burn My Eyes", captured in Philadelphia in 2004.
