A live album capturing the brutal majesty of Oakland metal veterans Machine Head playing at London's Brixton Academy back in 2001, Hellalive provides a fine opportunity to take a look back at the career of one of heavy rock's most underappreciated acts. It's true, Machine Head have never quite been able to top their fantastic debut, 1994's Burn My Eyes--right here, totally blistering takes on the brooding heresy of "I'm Your God Now", the pogo-thrash of "Old" and the Ministry-style jackhammer nastiness of "Davidian" only confirm that to be the case. But there's plenty here to demonstrate why we shouldn't let Machine Head get lost under the pile of generic rap-rock acts. "The Blood, the Sweat, the Tears" carries the gruesome, thick heaviness of Pantera like a torch. And on "Crashing Around You", frontman Rob Flynn launches into a chilling spoken introduction that broadens its misanthropic edge into an anthem to the grey, dispossessed ranks of old-skool heavy-metal. "I used to think I was the only weirdo in the world that has thoughts like this," he ponders. "But now I know I'm not alone." Live albums are so often a hollow excuse to fleece money from obsessive fans. Roadrunner, however, do them with a little care and attention--see also Sepultura's Under a Pale Grey Sky--and Hellalive is no exception. --Louis Pattison

This is a great live album and is well worth getting as the sound quality is pretty damn good. The crowd noises are lower in the overall mix which is what I prefer as you can really hear the songs properly. This is an excellent way to hear Machine Head on stage and in your face, "Hellalive" is well worth the price as it includes tracks from the first four Machine Head albums and the songs are flawlessly performed. Any Machine Head fan can rest assured that this is a must buy album and that you will not be disappointed in the slightest!!

The only way to describe 'Hellalive' is that it is truly amazing. Any Machine Head fan who's been to their shows will tell you they are an incredible live act, and this album showcases the raw talent on offer. 'Hellalive' sees the boys from the Bay tear it up in London's Brixton Academy during 2001's 'Supercharger' tour. And tear it up they certainly do.
The album begins with the brain crushing 'Bulldozer', the best track off the slightly disappointing 'Supercharger' album, and the first thing to hit you is the fact that this sounds like a studio album. That's what is so great about 'Hellalive', it might as well be a greatest hits compilation since every song sounds studio polished. I could go through the album track by track but anyone who has the other MH albums knows full well that they are incredible and all fine choices for a live show. Standing out for me are the classic 'Old', 'None But My Own'; the epic journey of thudding riffs, wonderful solos and a huge thrashy breakdown and, finally, the transition from the hauntingly beautiful (and possibly MH's best song) 'The Burning Red' to the crowd favourite 'Davidian'.
For seasoned MH fans there's nothing else to say but BUY THIS ALBUM! For those of you who either don't know much MH and are looking to find out more, or for those who are new to live albums my advice is to buy this and let Flynn and the lads show you how modern metal is done.

How many Machine Heads are there? One? Two?

Of course, the Oakland thrash band fronted by Robb Flynn, and now on its seventh studio album, is unique; but it has gone through a number of different phases. There's the Machine Head who released "Burn my Eyes" and "The More Things Change". The Machine Head who released "The Burning Red" and "Supercharger" and, most recently, the Machine Head who produced "Through the Ashes of Empires", "The Blackening" and "Unto the Locust". In each phase of their career, the band have attracted a new wave of fans and, inevitably, lost some along the way. Arguably, the most controversial and divisive of the band's albums were "The Burning Red" and "Supercharger", which saw the band tap into the growing trend for hip hop- and rap-influenced heavy metal. Many fans of the first two albums were disgusted and, although "The Burning Red" won the group some new fans, "Supercharger" saw the band's stock among the metal community fall to its lowest point since their formation.

This is the backdrop against which "Hellalive" was created - but while "Supercharger" was being panned by the music press and fans alike, metallers flocked to see Machine Head's live performance at the Brixton Academy in 2001. Why did they go? Because Machine Head are one of the greatest live acts in metal. I don't usually bother much with live albums, as many bands disappoint on live recordings; but not Machine Head. From start to finish, every track on this recording is exceptional. The band play with precision, energy and raw enthusiasm. The crowd love it. Rob Flynn loves it. Even the tracks from "Supercharger" are well received - they sound like they belong there, right alongside classics like "Old" and "Davidian".

I cannot recommend this album enough.

Many bands over the years have released live albums. Some critize this saying that they are just trying to make some money when studio recordings are on a low, and i agree with this in most cases.
Hell Alive is an amazing live album, machine head just boast ability an talent on this album. A good selection of songs all performed at an amazingly high standard. Usually you'd rather listen to the studio recordings rather than the live recording, but some of the songs on this album i'd rather listen too live.
This is the kind of album you can listen to through and through and not get bored, this is actually my favourite machine head album, purely because it has the best songs from each album.
If you are a machine head fan, this album is a must, if you have never heard machine head before i suggest you start with "burn my eyes", which personally i think is clearly their best studio album.

Machine Head's first official live release is, quite simply, brutal! Spanning their entire career to date, the set was predominantly recorded at their triumphant Brixton Academy show in 2001 and captures the essence of MH brilliantly- supercharged riffing, murky bass rhythms, pounding drums and vocals ranging from the softly spoken to the downright larynx splitting. Every track improves upon the studio versions, although my only complaint is the frequency of Robb Flynn's mentioning of London before every song- it's just not the same as 'Scream for me Long Beach'!!
As an introduction to the band its perfect, whilst diehard fans will want it as a souvenir of the MH live experience. On this form it still beggars belief that their profile isn't higher within metal circles.
