MACHINE HEAD BONUS

Posted on February 12, 2008

Blabbermouth reports that Robert Flynn, Machine Head frontman is set to finish his vocals for an as-yet-untitled new song, which is to be used as a bonus track/b-side in correlation with the band’s forthcoming sixth studio album ‘The Blackening

Aesthetics of Hate’ is a new song available for download from this location. The track which is taken from ‘The Blackening’ was inspired by an article written by William Grim, labelled “Aesthetics of Hate: R.I.P. Dimebag Abbott, & Good Riddance”, Robert Flynn said of the article:

“It basically said that Dime was untalented and that he reaped what he sowed,” Flynn told MTV.com about the article. (Grim called Abbott “an ignorant, barbaric, untalented possessor of a guitar” who looks “more simian than human” and “part of a generation that has confused sputum with art and involuntary reflex actions with emotion”). “It's one thing to have an opinion about an artist, but the thing that was the most offensive to me was how it then went on to cast this huge generalization over the metal community, calling us pathetic for mourning his death. He called us all ugly and fat. I wanted to punch the fucking computer screen when I read that article.”

Robert Flynn will be appearing on Bruce Dickinson’s BBC Radio 6 show, ‘Rock Show’ on 24th Feburary, you can listen online to the program live between 9:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. (midnight) U.K. at BBC.co.uk.
