Machine Head reveal new song Beyond The Pale and Catharsis album details

Machine Head

Machine Head have announced that their ninth album Catharsis will be released on January 26, via Nuclear Blast.

Speaking to Metal Hammer in the latest issue, Robb Flynn says Catharsis is “a very grooving, melodic record.”

“To my ears it’s the record that could have followed The Burning Red, except that this has a much more aggressive production. The Burning Red had a much darker, more stoner vibe. This has a real classic, Blackening, Burn My Eyes production, but I’ve still been saying to people on these Facebook Live things I do that you need to lower your expectations for the heaviness!”

Machine Head have released the first song from the new album Beyond The Pale.

Catharsis is available to pre-order now (opens in new tab).
