What's new?


Having released singles “Beyond The Pale” and the album’s title track “Catharsis” already, Machine Head have gone for the big guns with their brand new single which could be their most polarising single to date.

Titled “Bastards” the track is far simpler than what you might be used to in the Machine Head vocabulary and to be perfectly honest, when I first heard it on the album, I thought it was awful. However, letting the album sit with me and understanding its overall message its almost become one of my favourite tracks off the record.

Almost in a kind of Dropkick Murphy’s style territory, “Bastards” is very much a refrain of the Catharsis album and it only gets better when its put into context.

Look out for my review of the brand new album next week, its definitely an interesting listen, whichever side of the Machine Head coin you think about.

Machine Head’s very highly anticipated brand new album Catharsis is set for release on January 26th via Nuclear Blast, one day after my birthday! Preorder the album here.
