MACHINE HEAD has commenced the songwriting process for the long-awaited follow-up to 2007's "The Blackening", tentatively due late 2011 via Roadrunner Records.
"The Blackening" — which has garnered numerous awards and enjoyed praise from both critics and fans alike since its release in 2007 — received yet another incredible honor in a recent issue of U.K.'s Metal Hammer magazine, having been recognized by fans and magazine staff as the "Album of the Decade." The CD, which was re-released as a "special edition" in October 2008 via Roadrunner Records, was also certified silver by the BPI (British Phonographic Industry) for U.K. sales in excess of 60,000 copies.
After storming across Europe, MACHINE HEAD's "The Black Procession" tour hit Japan and Australia, putting an end to three incredible years of roadwork in support of "The Blackening". Continuing the assault with MACHINE HEAD were HATEBREED and BLEEDING THROUGH, with CROSSFAITH opening in Japan and EMMURE providing support in Australia.
