Logo #160: Machine Head
Designed for Oakland melodic heavy metal outfit Machine Head by lead singer Robert "Robb" Flynn in 1994. They paved the way for things like unkempt goatees, violently sullen looks and Trivium, and they made it difficult to go shopping for a metronome at the guitar shop from all the noise of their adherents playing loud. Nothing succeeds like success, it would seem. This is surpassed only by their deep love of symmetry and their fondness for stark circles and straight lines, so at this point I declare the account balanced out in the cosmos and return to the Song of the Moment, which is a Popol Vuh improvisation from 1971.
