Machine Head send album update

Machine Head have released a fifth video from the studio, where they’re working on eighth album Bloodstone & Diamonds.

The 12-track follow-up to 2011’s Unto The Locust is set for launch on November 10, and mainman Robb Flynn has described the production process as “a heck of a ride.” The band last week postponed a run of US dates in order to concentrate on finishing the record – but their December UK tour remains intact.

Flynn recently spoke to Metal Hammer about the songwriting process, the band’s split with bassist Adam Duce and more.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
