Machine Head's Robb Flynn

Watch Machine Head’s Robb Flynn Join Exodus For “A Lesson In Violence” In Oakland


Robb Flynn, guitarist/vocalist for groove turned thrash metal band Machine Head, was among the guests to join pioneering thrash metal outfit Exodus onstage for their set outside the Metro Operahouse in Oakland, CA yesterday, March 06th. Flynn took to the stage with the group to help out on vocals for the 1985 “Bonded By Blood” track “A Lesson In Violence“.

He had the following to say of the experience:

“What a night. Beyond honored to be asked to sing one of my favorite songs of all time ‘A Lesson In Violence‘ with one of my favorite bands of all time. Absolutely EPIC Exodus show tonight in the streets of Oakland. Pure mayhem!

Watching Tom Hunting alive, cancer free, and kicking ass is one of the greatest things on earth. And watching original H-Team guitarist Rick Hunolt slay up there right alongside the mighty Lee Altus, paying tribute to Paul Baloff was amazing.

So many friends to hang out and sing-a-long with including Sean from Vio-lence, Sven ex-Mercenary, Lars from Rancid, ALL of Death Angel, Wayne from Hatebreed, Chris Kontos (sick stage dive!), plus took Wyatt to his first Exodus show to see the thrash carnage firsthand.

Gary Holt you da man!🙏🏻🖤👊🏻”
