Machine Heads Posts New Song, “Beyond The Pale” Online, Reveals “Catharsis” Cover And Release Date

American metal veterans Machine Head has posted a new song online entitled, “Beyond The Pale,” which is available to listen to below. The song comes from their forthcoming new album, “Catharsis” which will be released through Nuclear Blast on January 26th and will feature fifteen new tracks. The record was produced by frontman Robb Flynn, who said about the album:

“I feel like metal could really infiltrate the mainstream with this album. And it needs to… now more than ever. A lot of consideration went into making these songs more identifiable to a wider audience. Simplifying ideas, simplifying hooks, really concentrating on story-telling as opposed to ‘brutal poetry’ or whatever. And while I’d love to say it was all some grand plan, there was no ‘plan.’ You never know where you’re going to end up whenever you start writing a record… you just write… but I tell ya what… we ended up with a landmark here.

“Whenever you finish an album, you always feel proud, but this time… we’ve got something really special. We can feel it. We know it. ‘Catharsis’ could really elevate our genre.”

The tracklisting for “Catharsis” is as follows:

1. Volatile
2. Catharsis
3. Beyond The Pale
4. California Bleeding
5. Triple Beam
6. Kaleidoscope
7. Bastards
8. Hope Begets Hope
9. Screaming At The Sun
10. Behind A Mask
11. Heavy Lies The Crown
12. Psychotic
13. Grind You Down
14. Razorblade Smile
15. Eulogy
