THE GREAT MACHINE is a 3 piece rock band from Israel. The brothers Haviv: Omer on guitar and Aviran on bass, combined with the energetic drumming of Michael Izaky, create a strong psychedelic, stoner-rock musical experience with a punk rock attitude.
Shortly after the release of their first EP in 2013, the band set out for a tour in Germany. They played at the Rotormania stoner festival along side Colour Haze, Coogans bluff, Rotor and many others. In 2014 The Great Machine debut album was released, and on April 2017 the second album “Love” was released, and has been getting many great reviews from all over the stoner/psych scene around the world.
On January 4th 2018, The band’s 3rd studio album "Respect" was released under the independent label Reality Rehab Records. After establishing a strong, loyal fanbase in Israel, THE GREAT MACHINE has played festivals and venues all over Europe, including Freak Valley in Germany, Wild Mint in Russia and SonicBlast Moledo in Portugal, and toured with "All them Witches" in October 2016. They were also the support band for Ozzy in Israel in 2018.
The free spirit and wild feeling that THE GREAT MACHINE spreads, and their on-stage behaviour immediately releases your inner rocker, even if it is quite suppressed.
