MACHINE HEAD's latest CD, "The Blackening", has entered the U.K. album chart at position No. 16. View the entire chart at this location. The CD has also landed at position No. 29 on the Dutch album chart.

Roadrunner Records U.K. has made "The Blackening" available in a limited edition featuring an extra track — the band's version of the METALLICA classic "Battery" — plus an additional DVD featuring a documentary "making of the album" and a collector's slipcase.

As previously reported, a seven-minute video interview with MACHINE HEAD frontman Robert Flynn, conducted late last year by Scuzz TV, has been posted online at YouTube.

"The Blackening" (which every self-respecting metal fan should own) was recorded at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA, with MACHINE HEAD frontman Robert Flynn returning to the producer's chair, and Mark Keaton once again handling engineering duties. Longtime MACHINE HEAD collaborator Colin Richardson (CANNIBAL CORPSE, TRIVIUM, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE) mixed the record in London.
