After cancelling a North American tour to finish work on the band's new album, Machine Head has released the fifth in a series of video blogs documenting the creation of eighth album "Bloodstone & Diamonds."

The band’s Nuclear Blast debut will be released on November 7th (Europe) and November 10th, 2014 (N. America/UK) on several physical and digital formats.

“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."

He goes on to say, “Without getting too philosophical on ya, »Bloodstone & 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 and are 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.”

The new album's track listing is:

1. Now We Die
2. Killers & Kings
3. Ghosts Will Haunt My Bones
4. Night Of Long Knives
5. Sail Into The Black
6. Eyes Of The Dead
7. Beneath The Silt
8. In Comes The Flood
9. Damage Inside
10. Game Over
11. Imaginal Cells (instrumental)
12. Take Me Through The Fire
