Blowin' Up the Machine is the second album by the heavy metal band Meldrum, featuring a modified lineup compared to that of their 2001 debut Loaded Mental Cannon. The album features a guest appearance by Motörhead vocalist/bassist Lemmy, along with guitarist/founder Michelle Meldrum's long-time friends Gene Hoglan (of Strapping Young Lad and Dethklok) and Linda McDonald (of Phantom Blue and The Iron Maidens).[1] A music video for "Purge" was released to promote the album.[2]

This was the band's last album to be released while Michelle Meldrum was still alive. On May 21, 2008, she died of a cerebral hemorrhage caused by a cystic growth that restricted the flow of blood and oxygen in her brain.[3]
