Undoubtedly one of the greatest metal albums of all time, Robb Flynn is promising the MH equivalent. Machine Head frontman Robert Flynn has revealed to Kerrang! magazine that death is a common theme on a number of the new songs that the band are currently working on. “We’ve got about five songs right now that I’m stoked with,” says Flynn. “There are songs about suicide and death. I read a letter by this soldier who was over in Iraq, who had written to his mother after he got shot in a battle. He came to the conclusion that he was dying and ended up giving the letter to his buddy to pass on. “It went ‘as I die here understand that my blood is on his hands,’ and I turned that into lyrics,” he adds. “It was one of the most poignant things I’d ever read. Our goal is to write the ‘Master of Puppets’ for this generation.” The follow-up to ‘Through the Ashes of Empires’ is expected out in 2007 on Roadrunner Records. Courtesy Of Blabbermouth
