‘ARRØWS IN WØRDS FRØM THE SKY’ MUSIC VIDEO, IN MOBILE-FRIENDLY ASPECT RATIO
Last year, Bay Area metal icons MACHINE HEAD unleashed their incendiary 10th studio album, ØF KINGDØM AND CRØWN. Today, the band releases the music video for the track‘ARRØWS IN WØRDS FRØM THE SKY’. Directed by Jon (Jern) Watson and edited by Mike Sloat,the mobile-friendly video features live footage from the band’s 2022 U.S. and European tours.
MACHINE HEAD‘s Robb Flynn comments, “The last few videos have been very artistic and thematic continuing the black & white scope of the concept record. For this we just wanted to have an old school, 90’s style live video, that is more or less a tribute to our absolutely insane fans (the Head Cases) going bat shit crazy, mixed with some good ol’ life-on-the-road-getting-hammered-backstage-vibe. Enjoy!”

MACHINE HEAD’s new album, 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 on two 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 album’s lyrics detail how their lives intertwine.
