Machine Head’s Burn My Eyes Celebrates 20th Birthday!

MACHINE HEAD’s groundbreaking debut album, Burn My Eyes, is now 20 years old! 20 years later, it is an extremely relevant album within the world of Heavy Music thanks to its strong message, crushing riffs, intense drum beats, and crisp solos.

Burn My Eyes was released on July 25, 1994 via Roadrunner Records and it not only changed the lives of all of the band members – Robb Flynn, Logan Mader, Adam Duce and Chris Kontos – but it changed Heavy Metal forever by bridging the gap between PANTERA-style groove Metal and Thrash Metal. Compared to their subsequent releases, it is more raw and aggressive, and even though MACHINE HEAD’s discography is one to be reckoned with, Burn My Eyes might be the best MH album ever!

Many songs in the album make references to well-publicized controversies, such as the 1992 Los Angeles Riots (heard in dialogue on “Real Eyes, Realize, Real Lies”) and the Waco Siege of 1993 (“Davidian”). There are also tales of physical and mental abuse (“None But My Own”, “The Rage To Overcome”), the condemning of profits from religious soliciting (“Death Church”), succumbing to substance abuse (“I’m Your God Now”) and aforementioned themes of urban decay, social unrest, rebellion, belligerence, and socio-political commentary.

In order to support this album strongly the band went on an extensive tour run, which eventually led to drummer Chris Kontos leaving the band. This is when the current drummer Dave McClain stepped up to the plate and helped the band to not miss a beat (literally).

Burn My Eyes quickly became a Roadrunner Records best seller and was the label’s best-selling debut album until the release of Slipknot’s 1999 self-titled debut.
