MICHAEL ANGELO BATIO SET TO RELEASE NEW INSTRUMENTAL ALBUM MORE MACHINE THAN MAN ON JUNE 12th VIA RAT PAK RECORDS

Shred guitar pioneer Michael Angelo Batio will release his 12th studio album More Machine Than Man on June 12th via Rat Pak Records. The album features 13 new studio tracks and is the highly anticipated follow up to 2013’s IntermezzoMore Machine Than Man is an all instrumental shred album from the Fastest Guitarist On The Planet that’s sure to resonate with past fans, as well as garner new fans along the way.  From the infectious guitar riffs from album openers Laser Guided and The Badlands, to the crushing bonus-track finale of No Backup Plan Michael has created something truly special and engaging. 

More Machine Than Man is available for pre-order in numerous bundle configurations here.

Mixed and Mastered by longtime Batio engineer Chris Wisco, the album also features guest performances by Chris Adler (Lamb of God), lending his drum skills on the tracks More Machine Than Man and The Two Sirens. Also appearing on the album is renowned bassist Victor Wooten who performs on AVTD, and guitar virtuoso Andrea Martongelli who guest solos on The Countdown Is On. Regarding the release, Michael comments, “This is the most ‘in your face’ album I have ever recorded. I limited the use of keyboards so you can hear the detail and precision of the rhythm guitars.  My goals were to write the best songs I could, keep the tracks as raw and natural as possible and make the grooves relentless!  I’m borrowing a quote by former NITRO singer Jim Gillette that I think describes More Machine Than Man perfectly – ‘If this album doesn’t rock your socks off, call the coroner ‘cause you must be dead!””

    Says New Album but the artwork has to be dug up from the late 70s – early 80s. Wow.
