Machine Head Videos
This is only a demo from Machine Head's forthcoming as-yet-untitled seven full-length album. However, it possesses all of the hallmarks of another classic from the Bay Area titans. "Killers & Kings" combines the epic expanse that hypnotized fans on Unto the Locust, The Blackening, and Through the Ashes of Empires. At the same time, the track harkens back to the pummeling groove snap and harmonics screech of Burn My Eyes and The More Things Change. In essence, it's the perfect Machine Head track bridging generations of the band and then spiraling out into a frenzy of leads and powerful, potent bridge from Robb Flynn that rises into one last explosion. They truly are "Killers & Kings" when it comes to heavy music, and this is one of their best pieces.
