Machine Head's ninth studio album, 'Catharsis', is all set for release on 26th January 2018 and will be available in an array of formats, including a CD/DVD digipak edition which includes concert footage of the band's 2015 show at San Francisco's Regency Ballroom.

Now the band have revealed a video clip of 'Now We Die', taken from that twenty-one track DVD footage and you can check it out right here:



You can also listen to a brand new song from the album, titled 'Beyond The Pale', right here:



A full-throttle rollercoaster through every facet of Machine Head's increasingly diverse sound, 'Catharsis' looks to be one of 2018s most acclaimed Metal records.

"This album is like a movie... a really long movie!" laughs frontman Robb Flynn.

"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."

'Catharsis' was produced by 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. The album's cover photography was created by Seanen Middleton.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
