The Man Who Would Not Die is the fourth studio album by English heavy metal band Blaze Bayley, released in 2008. It is the first studio album released by the band since they changed their name from "Blaze" and the first with the completely new band line-up other than Blaze Bayley himself.[3] The track "Robot" was released as the band's first single, and later a video was made for it.

The influence of the other band members can be heard more on The Man Who Would Not Die than previous Blaze Bayley albums, as they contributed more to the song themes and music. In an interview with the band, Bermudez stated that the track "Serpent Hearted Man" had very little writing from Bayley, and that in general the band worked more closely together than before.
