Machine Head are seeking to end the legal mudslinging that has surrounded the band since former bassist Adam Duce brought a lawsuit against them. The suit made claims of copyright infringement, breach of partnership and mismanagement of funds, among other things.
Machine Head are making strides toward a new album, but as frontman Robb Flynn reveals in a new "General's Journals" posting, things are moving forward at a "slow and steady" pace. However, the progress is coming along well enough for Flynn to divulge the current titles of a few songs that may make the next disc.
On Feb. 11, 2013, Machine Head fired bassist Adam Duce after over 20 years of playing music together. Very little has been heard from Duce since, but news just broke that the former Machine Head bassist is suing the band, all three current members and the group's manager for alleged trademark infringement, breach of partnership agreement, defamation + more.
Avenged Sevenfold released their sixth studio album, 'Hail to the King,' on Aug. 23. Although the act's fans have been eating up the album, Avenged Sevenfold have been met by various detractors as well, including Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn. Avenged Sevenfold singer M. Shadows responded to Flynn's criticism a short while ago, and now, guitarist Zacky Vengeance has done the same.
Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn recently took a shot at Avenged Sevenfold, claiming that the band lifted hooks from prominent metal bands for their 2013 album, 'Hail to the King,' which Flynn also called a "covers album." Now, Machine Head are suggesting that Avenged Sevenfold have stolen something from them, as well.
The thrash / groove hybrid Machine Head are currently working on their follow-up to 2011's mammoth album 'Unto the Locust.' The highly anticipated album has fans hoping the band will continue their hot streak that began with 'The Blackening,' which earned Machine Head their first Grammy nomination.
