MACHINE HEAD's covers of METALLICA's "Battery", FAITH NO MORE's "Jizzlobber", and EXODUS' "Toxic Waltz" have been posted online in streaming Real Audio at this location.
As previously reported, the members of the group's official forum were asked to list three songs that they would like to hear MACHINE HEAD cover, after which the band picked the 10 most interesting requests they felt they could do justice to. All of the forum members then voted on the final three, with the most-requested entries being given the "MACHINE HEAD treatment."
MACHINE HEAD are scheduled to enter a San Francisco Bay Area studio on Monday, June 16, to begin recording their new album, tentatively due in October through Roadrunner Records. 10 songs will be tracked during the sessions, which will see the band handling the production duties themselves for the first time.
The follow-up to 2001's "Supercharger" will be mixed by Colin Richardson, the man largely responsible for the crushingly thick sound on the band's first two offerings, 1994's "Burn My Eyes" and 1997's "The More Things Change…"
