They may not have a bassist for the moment, but San Francisco Bay Area metal act Machine Head are nevertheless started demoing new material today.
As in April 11, bitch.
The skeletons of the follow-up to 2011′s Unto The Locust will be recorded with engineer Juan Urteaga of Pacheco, California’s Trident Studios behind the boards.
“[Dave] McClain and I had a really good jam session on Monday,” writes frontman Robb Flynn.
“It was one of those jam days where you feel a breakthrough happen, a day where, for no apparent reason, several things fall into place and start to make sense. It is an amazing-yet-hard-to-explain feeling, but you know that a huge chunk of progress just happened! New riffs flowed, new ideas materialized and new concepts explored. It was definitely one of ‘those’ days.
“We had one more day of rehearsals yesterday and we’ll start demoing the new tunes today with my trusty engineer Juan from Trident Studios manning Da Tools,” he continues.
“Phil [Demmel] begins his Jackson Guitars clinic tour overseas for a couple weeks, so it’s a perfect time to demo. I tend to take over the jam room when demoing, so rehearsals fall by the wayside as I track and experiment with a million different ideas.”
