Machine Head’s Robb Flynn and his wife have welcomed the birth of their second son

Posted on February 12, 2008

Congratulations go out to MACHINE HEAD frontman Robert Flynn and his wife Genevra on the birth of their second son. Wyatt Lee Flynn was born Sunday, January 14 at 4:10 a.m., weighing in at 8 lbs. 12 oz. and measuring 20 3/4″ tall. The couple also have a two-year-old son, Zander. Machine Head‘s forthcoming album ‘The Blackening‘ is bookmarked for a March release and you can see the cover art here: Flynn has previously told The Gauntlet about the artwork, “It’s a metal carving from the 1500s. Back then they used a lot of crude metal carving images? almost as propaganda. It was kind of like scaring people about going to hell or whatever. A lot of it had to do with devils and death and stuff like that. They were eventually banned for a while. “The cover right now is like a skeleton sitting on a throne with his foot on top of the world and he’s holding up a mirror and the mirror says ‘The mirror which flatters not.’ “The reason we chose that image is that this whole record is like holding up a mirror to ourselves. It’s talking about things that are going on now, but it’s not necessarily specific to this time. “There are two songs that have a pretty strong anti-war sentiment, but it’s not the type of thing that’s just about this war, you know what I mean? It’s not necessarily a concept record in that sense, because the songs don’t all tie together thematically. There isn’t a story being told. I probably would have lost my mind if I would have had to tie all the lyrics together (laughs). It is about holding up a mirror to society.” The final track list appears as follows. 01. Clenching the Fists of Dissent 02. Beautiful Mourning 03. Aesthetics of Hate 04. Now I Lay Thee Down 05. Slanderous 06. Halo 07. Wolves 08. A Farewell to Arms The Machine Head site
