MACHINE HEAD Frontman: 'I Can't Remember Ever Being This Excited About Recording' - Aug. 22, 2006
MACHINE HEAD frontman Robert Flynn has posted the following message on the band's official web site:

"We are loading in today [Monday, August 21] to start on our new album!!! WOO - FUCKING - HOO!!! I can't remember being this excited about recording, well... EVER. Seriously, we're ready to fucking blow shit up! Spent Friday and Saturday with Dave [McClain, drums] down at the jam spot fine-tuning the songs, doing pre-production, and Saturday was really productive. Dave is fucking KILLING IT on the new shit; this will certainly be his finest hour to date. I think we both walked away (as dorky as it sounds) giddy with excitement... we're SO friggin' stoked with how cool the new stuff is turning out!

"We have officially narrowed down our song selection to eight songs. What, only eight?! That's right fuckers, eight songs! We have a 10-minute opening track that's practically four songs in one, with stop-on-a-dime changes and a rollercoaster ride of molten riffage! In fact, we have three 10-minute long tracks, so even with only eight songs, the record is damn near an hour long. It feels right though. It was a tough call; we wrote 26 songs in total, but these eight are the very best songs of the bunch. The other 18... though heavy, or catchy, or what-have-you... man... they just lacked that special something, or they didn't end with enough of that 'WOW!' factor, so we were brutally honest with ourselves, exercised a little self-restraint, and we think you will be incredibly impressed with the results."

MACHINE HEAD has set "The Blackening" as the title of its sixth studio album, tentatively due in early 2007 via Roadrunner Records. The group is recording the new CD at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA, with Flynn returning to the producer's chair, and Mark Keaton once again handling engineering duties. Longtime MACHINE HEAD collaborator Colin Richardson (CANNIBAL CORPSE, TRIVIUM, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE) will also be returning to mix the record alongside Flynn this October in London. Tentative songtitles for "The Blackening" include "Clenching the Fists of Dissent", "Aesthetics of Hate", "Halo", "The Beautiful Mourning", "Now I Lay Thee Down", "Slanderous Love", "Wolves" and "A Farewell to Arms". The band has also tapped longtime MACHINE HEAD artist Paul Brown (MARILYN MANSON) to begin working on album art in the coming weeks.

LOL!!!! I can't believe you just called me out on the internet. Wow...that's classic. You just made my night. I'd be more than happy to say it to your face, just means I gotta stick around a bit longer than usual with your mom waiting for you to get home from your car wash job. See ya then, just make sure to knock before you walk in.

Sounds like it could be really, really good. "Through Ashes of Empires" was a welcome return to form after two really shitty nu rappy albums. Machine Head are good.

One of the best concerts I've seen, Machine Head, came to Croatia for the first time, rocked the place, everybody was yelling Machine Fucking Head, but it took a while for Robb to explain what a mosh pit is, because metalheads in Slavic countries are not the smartest people

I say record all 26, and do an online poll to see what ones make it to the album. Put the rest on a lost archives CD down the road and sit back and count ya dolla bills ya'll.

So you want me to go listen to some Snot, since that's apparently your favorite band with that gay ass user name. I've seen machine head in concert, and they owned.


now your pedaling backwards. MH fans were pussies before. Little bitch. BTW MAchine Head Rules.

was awesome, but these guys fucked up huge with the 2 albums before that; I'm definitely adopting a wait-and-see approach when it comes to new Machine Head. Hopefully the last album wasn't a fluke.

Can't wait to hear the new Machine Head. What a great band. They are finally stable enough, ( member wise ) that they are getting their groove back. Great Bay Area band. This band has been around for over a decade. Sure, there a few bands that can say that, but not many of them are still kicking it like MH can.
