Hear Ex-Machine Head Duo Team With Megadeth & Bleeding Through Members On “The Permanent Decay”


Vio-lence guitarist Phil Demmel (ex-Machine Head) is now streaming his new track “The Permanent Decay“. The early groundwork for the song was originally written (and subsequently rejected) for Machine Head‘s divisive 2018 release, “Catharsis“.

Following Demmel‘s late 2018 exit from Machine Head alongside Dave McClain (now back with Sacred Reich), the two former bandmates got together to hammer out the track. They invited Megadeth bassist David Ellefson and Bleeding Through vocalist Brandan Schieppati to contribute and help flesh it out.

This song is the first in a series of planned tracks Demmel will release under his ‘Echoes Of Reckoning‘ umbrella of music. With that series he intends to collaborate with numerous artists across various genres.
