Machine Head was recently in the UK, and it seems like they had a hell of a time! They played a couple of festivals, staged a secret club gig full of cover tunes under the name Ten Ton Hammer, and picked up some serious recognition at a pair of major metal awards shows. On June 7, they were inducted into the Kerrang! Hall of Fame at that magazine's annual awards show (hosted by Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor and Anthrax's Scott Ian); here's some video of their acceptance speech:

 

 

Then, four days later, Robb Flynn and Phil Demmel were awarded the "Riff Lords" trophy at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards (which also saw the staff of Roadrunner UK given special tribute for Inspiration). And while at the Metal Hammer awards show, Robb jumped onstage with Biohazard to deliver a guest verse on their classic anthem "Punishment," which you can see above!
