The Blackening is the sixth studio album by American heavy metal band Machine Head. Recorded in a period of four months, the writing process began in early 2005, and recording concluded in late 2006. Lyrical themes explored on The Blackening include love, war, suicide, organized religion, and anger in society. The album's first single, "Aesthetics of Hate", is a retaliation to an article written by William Grim for the conservative web site Iconoclast. Titled "Aesthetics Of Hate: R.I.P. Dimebag Abbott, & Good Riddance", the article praised the murder of musician Dimebag Darrell, while he was performing with the band Damageplan on December 8, 2004. Flynn has said the song was written as a "fuck you" to Grimm, and pay tribute to Dimebag. The song received a Grammy Award nomination for "Best Metal Performance" at the 50th Grammy Awards.

Released on March 27, 2007 in the U.S., The Blackening sold 16,000 units in its first week, and became Machine Head's highest charting release at number 54 on the Billboard 200, and charted in the Top 20 throughout many countries in the rest of the world. Music critics praised the album for its aggressiveness and musicianship.
