Machine Head celebrated the 25th anniversary of the band’s second studio LP, “The More Things Change…”, with a special full-album play-through this past Friday, March 18 at 3:00 p.m. PDT. Joining Machine Head‘s Robb Flynn and Jared MacEachern for the event was original “The More Things Change…” guitarist Logan Mader. You can watch the full performance below.
Released in 1997, “The More Things Change…” was Machine Head‘s last LP to feature Mader, and the first to feature drummer Dave McClain. The album reached No. 138 on the Billboard 200 chart in 1997, and as of 2002 had sold over 115,000 copies in the United States. In 2020, it was named one of the 20 best metal albums of 1997 by Metal Hammer magazine.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Flynn has been staging Acoustic Happy Hour solo sessions every Friday, during which he has performed a number of MH tunes as well as covers of other artists’ songs.
