It would appear that Machine Head have officially added two new members to fill the voids left by Phil Demmel and Dave McClain. No less than Devilment & Eastern Front drummer Matt Alston and Decapitated guitarist Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka have been named to make this happen!
Vogg had the following to say of his addition to the band:
“It’s a huge honour to be able to play at the same stage with the mightly Machine Head. I grew up on their music and when I heard I will join them on this tour, I was literally stoked!
As a thirteen years old I was learning songs from ‘Burn My Eyes’ who is still one of my favorite albums EVER, that album had also a big influence on my playing and my guitar skills.
Machine Head is not just a band, it’s an institution who has still a big influence on how all metal scene looks like, so for me as a musician and also a metal fan it’s something special to be able to be a small part of it.
That will be definately a huge lesson and experience for me to be a part of such a professional team. Adventure begins, I cannot wait!
To all Decapitated fans: I will see with you also during Decapitated shows in 2020. We do plan also to compose new music for next album so keep an eye on more news!”
