Machine Head return with a brand new video ahead of their January 26th album release date. The video for “Catharsis”, the title track of the album, shows the band literally locked up in an insane asylum. Straight-jackets and all. Kind of expected, nu-metal-crazy setting.
But for a pedigree band like MH, the production quality is super high with costuming, fog machines, set decoration and extras aplenty. You can really see the difference in production value compared to a band just starting out. This feels like a two-day video shoot. One day with the band and one day with the extras and b-roll.
For their second “official video” they released a live taping of their classic song “Ten Ton Hammer”.
