Bay Area metal titans Machine Head, have released the first single from their eighth full-length album ‘Bloodstone & Diamonds’, online – listen below. “Now We Die” is taken from the band’s Nuclear Blast Entertainment debut, which will be released on November 7 (Europe) and November 10, 2014 (N. America/UK) on several physical and digital formats.

‘Bloodstone & Diamonds’ was once again produced by Robb Flynn himself and Juan Urteaga (Testament, Vile), and like the last 7 out of 8 albums, was masterfully mixed by Colin Richardson (Carcass, Bullet For My Valentine, Slipknot, Behemoth). Additional tracking, editing, and mixing was done with heavy metal legend Andy Sneap (Exodus, Arch Enemy, Megadeth) who also launched his career co-mixing Machine Head’s 2nd album ‘The More Things Change,’ and Steve Lagudi.

“I cannot even begin to tell you how proud we are of this album,” comments frontman Robb Flynn. “It’s been a heck of a ride, but man, this album is a milestone for us. You’re going to love it Head Cases.”
