Damn The Machine

Damn The Machine was formed by ex-Megadeth guitarist Chris Poland some time after leaving that band. The one self-titled album is in the melodic progressive metal vein, similar to Queensryche or later-period Fates Warning. Despite fine reviews, the band broke up soon after its release. David Clemmons is now in a band called Jud (see link below), while Poland is now in a jazz-rock band called Ohm.
