Deep Purple - Machine Head
Machine Head is the third Mk II (sixth overall) Deep Purple studio album. It was recorded at the Grand Hotel Montreux, Switzerland in December 1971 with the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio and released in March 1972. The album is often cited as being very influential in the development of the heavy metal music genre. It is Deep Purple's most successful recording, topping the charts in several countries following its release.
In 2001 Q magazine named it as one of the 50 Heaviest Albums of All Time.
It is commonly cited as one leg of the 'Holy Trinity' of hard rock, the other two being Led Zeppelin IV and Black Sabbath's Paranoid.
Machine Head is also the subject of one of the Classic Albums series of documentaries about the making of famous albums.
Machine Head was also released on the multichannel formats Super Audio CD (2003) and DVD-Audio (2001).
