Press info: “It’s centred on two rival characters: Ares, who loses the love of his life (Amethyst) and goes on a murderous rampage against the vile sect responsible for her murder; and Eros, the perpetrator, who loses his mother to a drug overdose and becomes radicalised in the aftermath, manifesting his own killing spree.”

Robb Flynn (frontman): “Thanks to my two teenage boys, my family has become obsessed with this awesome Japanese anime series called Attack On Titan. The album’s concept was loosely inspired by the series in the sense that in the storyline, there is no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ guy – both characters believe they’re doing the right thing as it applies to their being. But make no mistake, both are committing acts of pure atrocity and evil. The opening track ‘SLAUGHTER
THE MARTYR’ is basically our character #1’s origin story.”

Lead Single: CHØKE ØN THE ASHES ØF YØUR HATE

Thrash metal at its
slashing best.

22 April 1972 – DEEP PURPLE Scores Big With 6th Album ‘MACHINE HEAD’…

22 April 2019

Legendary hard rockers DEEP PURPLE reached the top spot of the UK albums
chart – for the second time – on 22 April 1972, 47 years ago, with their sixth LP
MACHINE HEAD. The album was also a bestseller all over Europe and peaked
at #7 in the USA. The success of its lead single SMOKE ON THE WATER issued
in December of the previous year was a big factor for the longplayer’s triumph.

Oh yeah, whether you were/are a hard rock fan or not you just can’t ignore the
booming power of this timeless, head-banging riff. Press the button here…
