Machine Head’s New Album Is Done

0

Last month, groove metal superstars Machine Head released a video chronicling the making of their upcoming album. Now, in a new interview, bassist Jared MacEachern has revealed that the band’s new record is complete and awaiting post-production.

Speaking to Primordial Radio about the album’s process, his own contributions, and the general tone, Jared said the following [as transcribed by Blabbermouth]

“I think that I was very aware from day one that Robb [Flynn, guitar/vocals] is the leader, he’s the creative leader, the musical leader… We all have our inputs but I think it’s always understood that ultimately the decision is up to him for how things go. But, yeah, I definitely made contributions and I feel great about those contributions and I’m asked about my opinion on certain things. But, like I said, I’m following his lead.

“It’s a pretty — to use Robb’s word… I believe he used the word ‘colossal’ the other day. It’s a pretty big, epic-sounding album. We’ve been toying around with the order, but I’ve been listening, sitting down, taking the time to listen to it all the way through, and the way it goes, it’s a ride — a really great, heavy, beautiful, melodic, raging, thrashing ride.”
