Machine Head Release New Video
San Francisco Bay Area's Machine Head are gearing up to release their highly anticipated new album Catharsis on January 26 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The band have today released the live video for the song 'Now We Die' from the bonus DVD of the limited edition of their upcoming release. The bonus DVD will feature a 21 song live concert filmed at The Regency Ballroom, San Francisco, CA in 2015.
Catharsis was produced by Robb Flynn and recorded, mixed, and co-produced by Zack Ohren (Fallujah, All Shall Perish) at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA. Mastering was handled by Ted Jensen (Hatebreed, Alice In Chains, Deftones) at Sterling Sound, New York, NY. Cover photography was created by Seanen Middleton.
You can hear the brand new track from the album entitled 'Beyond The Pale' below. The band recently started a competition in which they encourage their fans to come up with a music video for said track, which you can check out at http://nuclearblast.com/mh-beyondthepale.
“I feel like metal could really infiltrate the mainstream with this album. And it needs to... now more than ever. A lot of consideration went into making these songs more identifiable to a wider audience. Simplifying ideas, simplifying hooks, really concentrating on story-telling as opposed to ‘brutal poetry’ or whatever. And while I’d love to say it was all some grand plan, there was no ‘plan’” Flynn adds laughing. “You never know where you’re going to end up whenever you start writing a record... you just write... but I tell ya what... we ended up with a landmark here.
Whenever you finish an album, you always feel proud, but this time... we’ve got something really special. We can feel it. We know it. »Catharsis« could really elevate our genre."
