METAL HAMMER scribe Terry Bezer (pictured left) is making demands on the Download Festival organizers. He wants a top notch metal band for the final headliner announcement and he will settle for nothing less than our very own MACHINE F’N HEAD.
“…with all of the will in the world, it’s widely regarded that the latest Linkin Park album stinks worse than one of Adrian Chiles’s farts.” he writes, “That means that the last Download headliner is absolutely crucial in this year’s festival war. For me, there’s only one band for the job and that’s Machine fucking Head.”
When citing his reasons for his choice, he continues, “Machine Head headlining the worldwide spiritual home of metal would be an event. It’d be a genuine “bring the DVD out, buy the shirt, tell your kids you were there” event that would go down in history as a landmark moment for a band that have been brought to the mountain top by the British metal community…go to any rock club across our great isle and everyone knows every syllable to ‘Imperium’, ‘Aesthetics Of Hate’, ‘Ten Ton Hammer’, ‘Old’ and every motherfucker knows exactly how you let freedom reign. They’re a band that have built a legacy through years of top-quality metal, not by ever being ‘flavour of the month’ or being the leaders of any kind of hip scene. They’ve always stood alone as Machine fucking Head and for 16 years, metalheads of all ages have loved them for that exact reason.”

As the band are currently working on their follow-up to 2008’s The Blackening, we cannot possibly comment on the band’s availability. However, we love the sentiment Beez!
