By Machine Head

Back in Dec 2021, drummer Navene Koperweis (Animals As Leaders, Entheos, Animosity) joined Robb, Jared, and engineer Zack Ohren at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland to finish jamming on the final tracks for "ØF KINGDØM AND CRØWN" and add some finishing touches to the songs. 

Returning to the studio where "Through The Ashes Of Empires" and "The Blackening" were recorded brought about some spectacular vibes for the new album. 
 Pre-order Machine Head's 10th Album, the immense and unapologetic, "ØF KINGDØM AND CRØWN,” coming August 26th, 2022. 
"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 around 2 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 radicalized in the aftermath. Eros goes off the deep end manifesting his own killing spree. 
The lyrics detail how their lives intertwine.
