MACHINE HEAD Fan Performs With Band In Vienna; Video Available

A MACHINE HEAD fan — and aspiring guitarist — joined the San Francisco Bay Area metallers on stage at their February 10 concert at Gasometer in Vienna, Austria to perform the song "Aesthetics Of Hate" with the four members of the band. According to a posting on the MACHINE HEAD fan site, a guy in the crowd had a banner that said "Let Me Play 'Aesthetics Of Hate' — Seriously, I Can Play It". MACHINE HEAD guitarist/vocalist Robb Flynn asked bassist Adam Duce whether they should invite the fan up on stage and give him a chance to show off his skills. Flynn then said "Let's do it!" and gave up his axe for the song and just sang for the entire track while the fan played Robb's guitar.

Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be viewed below.

After storming across Europe, MACHINE HEAD's "The Black Procession" tour will hit Japan and Australia, putting an end to three incredible years of roadwork in support of the band's highly acclaimed, Grammy-nominated album "The Blackening". Continuing the assault with MACHINE HEAD are HATEBREED and BLEEDING THROUGH, with CROSSFAITH opening in Japan and EMMURE providing support in Australia.
