Machine Head have launched N GDS, N MASTERS, the most recent single from their just-released 10th studio album, F KINGDM AND CRWN.

One of the most melodic cuts on the album, N GDS, N MASTERS finds Robb Flynn and company in searing songwriting form, because they combine frenetic alternate picking riffs and leads with gloriously anthemic singalong sections. Watch its moody and ambitious accompanying music video below.

Were really pleased with the video for N GDS, N MASTERS, says Flynn. It had been an unbelievable collaboration between three different creative teams working across two different continents. Our director/editor Mike Sloat teamed up with the amazing Grupa 13 [a production house located in Wrocaw, Poland] and the beautiful 3D CGI originated from Phil Radford [VFX artist at animation studio Strangebox].

Out today (August 26), F KINGDM AND CRWN is really a 13-track concept album which details the stories of two characters: Ares and Eros, and how their lives intertwine.

Because the band explained ahead of its release, Ares is really a character who loses the love of his life and continues on a murderous rampage contrary to the vile sect in charge of her murder.

Eros, meanwhile, may be the perpetrator, who loses his mother to a drug overdose and becomes radicalized in the aftermath. Eros goes off the deep end manifesting their own killing spree.

The albums concept was loosely inspired by [anime series Attack on Titan] in the sense that in the storyline, there is absolutely no good or theif. Both characters believe theyre doing the proper thing since it pertains to their being, but both are committing acts of pure atrocity and evil.

F KINGDM AND CRWN also marks the very first time guitarist Wacaw Kietyka who joined in 2019 has appeared on a complete Machine Head album.

N GDS, N MASTERS may be the fifth single released from the record, after MY HANDS ARE EMPTY, ARRWS IN WRDS FRM THE SKY, CHKE N THE ASHES F YUR HATE and UNHALLWED.
