The Ex Man Podcast 38 – Robb Flynn (Machine Head, ex-Vio-lence, ex-Forbidden)

Doc speaks with Machine Head frontman, Robb Flynn, about his crazy, early years in the Bay Area experimenting with drugs, starting thrash band Forbidden, cutting his teeth on the road with Vio-lence, how the changing 90s metal scene inspired him to start Machine Head, how they secured a record deal with Roadrunner Records, the huge impact and success of Burn My Eyes, how the band defied categorization through the years as their sound evolved, and discuss race relations and outrage culture.

This episode features the song “No Return” by Void Vator from the album Dehumanized, and the song “Beyond The Pale” by Machine Head from the album Catharsis.
