ROBB FLYNN: "Don't expect 'The Blackening 2'; we're moving forward."

Machine Head

MACHINE HEAD last year begun writing and demoing material for the band's new studio album, which the group hopes to officially start recording in April.

In a recent issue of Metal Hammer magazine, Flynn stated about the progress of the songwriting sessions for MACHINE HEAD's follow-up to 2007's "The Blackening", "So far we have two songs done, 'This Is The End' and 'Who We Are'. We have a third getting there, and six or seven jams that aren't songs yet.

"It's too early to see what direction it's headed, but the two that are done are anthemic, riff-tastic, and have an epic, neo-classical kind of vibe. Lyrically, songs are angry but about struggle.

"Don't expect 'The Blackening 2'; we're moving forward."

MACHINE HEAD's new album is tentatively due late 2011 via Roadrunner Records. - A Place Dedicated to the Mighty Machine Head!
