Machine Head – release brand new song, ‘Beyond The Pale’

Machine Head – release brand new song, ‘Beyond The Pale’
Salad Days

San Francisco Bay Area metal titans Machine Head, will release their highly anticipated new album ‘Catharsis’ on January 26 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

Today, the band has released a brand new track from the album entitled ‘Beyond The Pale’, here:

“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.”

‘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.
