MACHINE HEAD have released a brand new song!
The new song, titled Beyond The Pale, is taken from the band’s highly anticipated new album Catharsis which is scheduled to be released in January next year. The upcoming album was produced by Robb Flynn and recorded, mixed, and co-produced by Zack Ohren (FALLUJAH, ALL SHALL PERISH) at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA. Mastering was handled by Ted Jensen (HATEBREED, ALICE IN CHAINS, DEFTONES) at Sterling Sound, New York, NY. Speaking about the upcoming album, Robb Flynn says, “this album is like a movie, a really long movie! There are a lot of special songs on this record. I’ve never really felt like, ‘Wow, we’ve got something really special here!’ before, but this time I can feel it. I know it. I know some people aren’t gonna dig it and that’s always the case, so who cares? I dig it.”
