Through The Ashes Of 2 CDs

Posted on February 12, 2008

Machine Head’s new album (due out Oct 13th) will be available as a special limited double CD edition with a slipcase. However, this version of the CD will only be available on initial store orders of the album… so once their stock is gone, that’s it, no more double CD slipcase version. The 2nd CD will contain 5 demos (that were done for this record), the live video for ‘The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears’, the new video for ‘Imperium’ (tentatively planned to be shot Aug 25th) and footage that was filmed during the recording of ‘Through The Ashes Of Empires’. In other Machine Head news, last night was the first official hearing of the new MH tunes. From 7pm in central London, a special listening party (with air con & free bar) was hosted with selected radio, TV, and print media folks in attendance. Not to mention some Roadrunner street & e-teamers, and a couple of lucky competition winners. The special guest was of course the man himself, Robert Flynn. Several new tracks were played… and let us tell you.. they have been worth the wait. You want drums, you want guitars, you want riffs… they are here. Check out a couple of photos from the night HERE. We’ll leave you with words from a teamer & competition winner…. “What a truly great night, apart from the searing heat outside, that only added to our anticipation of the free bar we were going to meet Robb fucking Flynn and hear the new album!!!! My word. The new stuff is absolutely awesome, heavy as fuck, the guitars are baaaaaaack! 😀 Robb was such a cool guy, even stopping us from chatting so he could break into vocals hahaahah. All in all an amazing night, amazing band. Bring it on!” “I just got back from the listening party! …..Man… The record sounds fuckin’ great…. heavy as shit! It reminds me of a mix between Burn My Eyes and The Burning Red. The first track they played started with massive drums!!!!! and guitars!!!!! …the songs they played all flow together as one huge chunk of metal and there are some cool trippy guitars throughout. I can’t wait till Oct 13th when I can get it for real. Met Robb too…he was cool and signed all my stuff like a true champ (there was alot…Cheers m8) and he seemed really excited about the new record…it’s easy to see why.”
