Listen To MACHINE HEAD Mainman Break Down New Album On Spotify

Monday, 17th November 2014

Bay Area metallers MACHINE HEAD have released the official track-by-track for the band’s new album, Bloodstone & Diamonds via Spotify. Mastermind Robb Flynn describes every track in his own words, here.

Comments MACHINE HEAD frontman Robb Flynn: “I cannot even begin to tell you how proud we are of this album. It’s been a heck of a ride. It looked like it might not ever happen again at one point, but man, this album is a milestone for us. Without getting too philosophical on ya, bloodstone and diamonds represent two of the hardest materials on earth. It is also a lyric from the opening track of the album, ‘Now We Die’.

“In many cultures, the bloodstone has been used as an amulet to protect against evil, and is the symbol of justice. Diamonds are the hardest natural material on earth (which is how we feel about our music), and it also represents the diamond logo I drew 22 years ago (in my wife’s apartment on Dover St. in Oakland) that has become the symbol for the band.”
