New Machine Head album out now!

Metalnews Power of
Bay Area Metal Titans MACHINE HEAD have released their highly anticipated new album and Nuclear Blast Entertainment debut »Bloodstone & Diamonds« today. Coinciding with the release, the band kicks off their European tour in support of the album today in Strasbourg, France. The complete tour dates can be seen below.

The band made the entire album available for streaming at this location.

As a news from camp SPOTIFY, MACHINE HEAD just took over the infamous „Novelties“ playlist of Nuclear Blast which usually features all the latest songs as soon as they’re released by the label. Machine Head gave a shit and just put their whole record in there forcing every subscriber to listen to it in its entirety. Actually, it’s not that bad as the record is a(nother) milestone in the band’s career but Nuclear Blast folks are working non-stop to gain access to their Spotify profile again and to remove the album there but probably it’ll remain there over the weekend ;-)

Earlier this week the new song, 'Night Of Long Knives', was released and can be checked out here.

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.
