MACHINE HEAD - worldwide chart positions announced

San Francisco Bay Area metal titans  MACHINE HEAD , have released their highly anticipated new album  Catharsis   on January 26 via  Nuclear Blast Entertainment

Now, the worldwide chart positions are in, including three Top 5, two Top 10 and five Top 20 entries.  Catharsis  also holds the highest ever entries for the band in Germany, Switzerland, Scotland and Spain.

USA #17

Frontman / guitarist  Robb Flynn  adds,  “The chart positions coming in from around the globe are nothing short of incredible. The Head Cases of the world really made a show of force this week. But I gotta give an extra-special shout-out to the Head Cases of America. They stood their ground through a veritable hurricane of negativity, belligerant-ass reviews, and straight up online extremist-hate mudding the waters. To ignore all that, and stand by YOUR band means more than you will ever know. You deserve to be applauded so fucking loudly our hands should hurt from clapping and our throats from cheering.  

"We are unbelievably grateful to you.

"And this news on the same day that Best Buy announces they will stop selling CDs altogether!  

"Feeling proud... and so should you be Head Cases!"  

Catharsis   was produced by  Robb Flynn  and recorded, mixed, and co-produced by   Zack Ohren  ( FALLUJAH ALL SHALL PERISH ) at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA. Mastering was handled by  Ted Jensen  ( HATEBREED ALICE IN CHAINS DEFTONES ) at Sterling Sound, New York, NY. Cover photography was created by  Seanen Middleton .

To order  Catharsis   in various formats (CD, Digipak, CD-Digi + DVD + 2LP Boxset, black, picture, red, dark blue, bi-colored, splatter vinyl - see below), visit this location:  http://nblast. de/MHCatharsis

“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‘”  Flynn  adds laughing.  “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."
