Brutal Bastards Machine Head have posted details of their forthcoming album ‘The Blackening’ on their official site MACHINEHEAD1.COM The band are set to enter Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA on Monday, August 21st to record their newly titled upcoming album, “The Blackening”. Vocalist/Guitarist Robert Flynn will be returning to the producer’s chair for the band’s sixth studio album, with Mark Keaton once again handling engineering duties. Longtime Machine Head collaborator Colin Richardson (Machine Head, Cannibal Corpse, Trivium, Bullet For My Valentine) will also be returning to mix the record alongside Flynn this October in London. “Words can’t really describe how excited we are to get into the studio and record this record,” exclaims drummer Dave McClain. “The shows that we just played on the Sounds of the Underground tour were as amazing as we’d hoped they’d be, the raw energy and excitement level of our fans right now is just incredible, we’re fired up!” Tentative song titles for “The Blackening”, set for release in early 2007, currently 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”. Guitarist Phil Demmel adds, “We’re still smoothing out some rough edges but what we have, we’re extremely proud of. I’m not one to go off on ‘Heavier than blah-blah-blah!!!!’ and ‘Crushes your-these-and-those!!!!’, but I will say that fans of what we call ‘Just Fuckin’ Metal’ will be digging this new material”. The band have also tapped longtime Machine Head artist Paul Brown (Machine Head, Marilyn Manson, Michael Moore) to begin working on album art in the upcoming weeks.
