Machine Head is the sixth studio album released by the English rock band Deep Purple. It was recorded during December 1971 in Montreux, Switzerland, and released in March 1972. Machine Head is often cited as a major influence in the early development of the heavy metal music genre. Commercially, it is Deep Purple's most successful album, topping the charts in several countries following its release. The album reached number 1 in the United Kingdom and stayed in the top 40 for 20 weeks.
This is the reason I started to listen to machine head! The build up is really nice. I didn't think Machine Head could top themselves but they did it with this track. Love the aggressive ferociousness! Machine Head forever. All the songs on the new album are good especially this and ghosts will haunt my bones! - wolphert. Very slow at the first half then it started kicking ass. This is an awesome listening experience.
What looks like the final Machine Head album for this line-up, Catharsis is something of a mixed bag. Much was made of the Robb's misjudged folk song Bastards, using various slurs to try and reclaim them in his new woke form, instead coming across as a cringey mess. The record is bloated and outstays its welcome at 15 tracks and over 70 minutes in length, but there is the odd diamond in the rough – all limited to the first half of the record. History has been pretty kind to Unto The Locust, it’s certainly no easy thing having to be the album that follows a musical force of nature like The Blackening. And, at the time, a lot of people were lukewarm on Machine Head’s effort, scoffing at children’s choirs and bemoaning that it wasn’t quite as good as one of the 21st century’s best albums. But, really, what can compete with The Blackening?

Inspired by real-life events in Montreux, Switzerland, where Deep Purple were recording the album when the Montreux Casino was burned to the ground during a Frank Zappa concert, neither the song, nor its timeless riff, should need any further description. However, Machine Head was anything but a one-trick pony, introducing the bona fide classic opener "Highway Star," which epitomized all of Deep Purple's intensity and versatility while featuring perhaps the greatest soloing duel ever between guitarist Ritchie Blackmore and organist Jon Lord.
