Machine-Head-Catharsis-2018Earlier in the month, we covered the track Beyond The Pale from Machine Head’s upcoming album Catharsis for the single of the week and it was freaking awesome. Now the band wants to know if you are ready for some metal mayhem and the answer better be yes because this week’s Metal Music Video of the Week is the title track from the album. The video itself is a little bizarre as it features some people that are trapped under a sheet as they can not see or anything as a bearded naked man prances over them until they all start to break free and do the same thing that he is doing while the band rocks out. We also see Robb Flynn tied up in a straight jacket as he is trapped in a padded cell and much more. Robb talks about the writing process and how honest he was with the lyrics saying, “When we were writing the record I’d get up at 4:30 in the morning, damn near every day and I’d just write lyrics. 80 percent was garbage, but 20 percent of it was gold and the things I liked this time round were just really clear, really straight ahead, completely non- metaphorical, coarse, vulgar language. The language of hip-hop, the language of how people speak in the streets, how we speak now. I didn’t want somebody to go ‘Oh I wonder if he’s talking about…’ No, you know exactly what the fuck I’m singing about. It may not be PC, but at the same time, we’re releasing an incredible amount of emotions on this album.” Check out the video below and make sure you pick the album on January 26TH where you get your music.
