Machine Head discography

The discography of Machine Head, an Oakland, California-based heavy metal band, consists of six studio albums, one live album, four extended plays, one DVD, and twelve singles that did not chart.

Machine Head was formed in 1992 in Oakland, California by vocalist/guitarist Robert Flynn and bassist Adam Duce, both were previously on Vio-lence. Later that year Flynn and Duce recruited guitarist Logan Mader and drummer Tony Costanza, that left the band shortly after and was been replaced by Chris Kontos. In 1993, they signed with Roadrunner Records and recorded its debut album Burn My Eyes, which was released a year later. After touring in support of Burn My Eyes, Machine Head started recording it's follow up, The More Things Change..., which was released in 1997.

In 1999, Machine Head released The Burning Red, with this album the band changed its musical direction and were accused of selling out. Despite backlash from the media, the album debuted at number 88 on the Billboard 200. In 2001, Machine Head released its fourth studio album, Supercharger. The music video for "Crashing Around You", taken from this album, was banned from MTV after the September 11, 2001 attacks due to its depictions of falling buildings. After the music video ban, Roadrunner stopped promoting the album, causing the band to leave the label after the release of a live album, Hellalive, only for contract obligations. The band's fifth studio album, Through the Ashes of Empires, was released in Europe and caught the attention of Roadrunner US. The label asked the band to re-sign to them and the band accepted. In March 2007, Machine Head released its sixth studio album, The Blackening, which debuted at number 54 on the Billboard 200, their highest chart position in the United States.
