After months of speculation, most of the final details for Machine Head’s upcoming DVD “Elegies” have been officially announced! Scheduled to street on October 10th, their first-ever DVD release will focus around (and contain the entirety of) Machine Head’s performance at London’s Brixton Academy, filmed on December 5th, 2004. In addition, the disc will feature three behind-the-scenes vignettes, focusing on the making of the band’s newest record “Through the Ashes of Empires”, life on the road with Machine Head, and an up-close and personal look at the greatest horde of lunatics in the world – Machine Head fans. Viewers will have the choice of watching the vignettes interstitially (injected into the concert footage) or on their own. On top of that, three music videos – “Imperium”, “Days Turn Blue To Gray” (both uncensored and uncut) and “The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears” – will also be included, each accompanied by its own behind-the-scenes “Making of” documentary. íæ All of the aforementioned behind-the-scenes and documentary material has been recompiled and re-edited from over 300 hours of footage amassed by the band since writing for “Through the Ashes of Empires” began in 2003, providing a never-before-seen glimpse into the world of heavy metal’s most ferocious empire.
