Darkness Within

Album: Unto The Locust (2011)

  • Lyrics
  • This acoustic ballad is the biggest departure from Machine Head's normal sound on Unto The Locust. Guitarist Phil Demmel commented to Sonic Excess magazine: "All of my friends that aren't kind of into metal say, 'Damn, is that you guys?' It's a beautiful, beautiful song. Still heavy, but us growing as musicians. It has my favorite, the best solo I've ever done for this band, so far, dripping with emotion. I'll leave it at that."
