VIDEO NEWS: Machine Head Release Video For New Single ‘UNHALLØWED’
Machine Head have released a video for their new single UNHALLØWED, taken from their upcoming tenth album ØF KINGDØM AND CRØWN. The video was shot live during the band’s Electric Happy Hour series.
ØF KINGDØM AND CRØWN is a 13-track concept album, set in a decimated futuristic wasteland where the sky is stained crimson red. The crux of the story is based on two main characters:
Character #1 Ares: (pronounced Aries), our main, who loses the love of his life (Amethyst) and goes on a murderous rampage against the vile sect responsible for her murder.
Character #2 Eros: (pronounced Arrows) the perpetrator, who loses his mother to a drug overdose and becomes radicalised in the aftermath. Eros goes off the deep end manifesting his own killing spree.
“Drowning in the deepest depression of his life, Eros is at a breaking point. Collecting heartaches, loss, and near psychotic isolation, Unhallowed is the beginning of a powerful shift of our story. An introspective narrative starts the song lyrically, which is a collaborative effort written by myself, guitarist Wac?aw ‘Vogg’ Kie?tyka, and bassist/backing vocalist Jared MacEachern and encapsulates the collective strength of this writing team,” Robb Flynn explains.
“Anchored by an absolutely monstrous groove, the vocals melodically mirror the state of mind of Eros as he reels from the loss of his mother to a drug overdose and begins a slow downward spiral into madness. However, the culmination of the track infuses some much-needed light, but will it be enough?”
