All Music Guide - John Franck
Released to massive European acclaim, Machine Head's full-length debut, Burn My Eyes, successfully bridges the gap between second-generation Bay Area thrash Testament, Death Angel, etc. and the modern-day Pantera school of hard knocks. Produced by underground stalwart Colin Richardson, Burn My Eyes is a bone-shattering exercise in brutality that gives Pantera's classic, Vulgar Display of Power, a good run for its money. A veteran of the Bay Area thrash scene, guitarist/vocalist Robb Flynn emerges as Machine Head's anchor. As guitar player of the riff-heavy yet vocally challenged band Vio-Lence, Flynn had already distinguished himself as a riff-making machine on tracks like ...

All Music Guide - John Franck
Released to massive European acclaim, Machine Head's full-length debut, Burn My Eyes, successfully bridges the gap between second-generation Bay Area thrash Testament, Death Angel, etc. and the modern-day Pantera school of hard knocks. Produced by underground stalwart Colin Richardson, Burn My Eyes is a bone-shattering exercise in brutality that gives Pantera's classic, Vulgar Display of Power, a good run for its money. A veteran of the Bay Area thrash scene, guitarist/vocalist Robb Flynn emerges as Machine Head's anchor. As guitar player of the riff-heavy yet vocally challenged band Vio-Lence, Flynn had already distinguished himself as a riff-making machine on tracks like "Serial Killer" and "Kill on Command." Interestingly, with the release of Burn My Eyes, every effort was made to cover up Flynn's involvement with his ex-bandmates. Looking back at it, it's easy to understand why. Because of the quick word of mouth in the underground metal community, comparisons to his ex-bandmates would have limited the impact of the record, possibly thwarting its merits. If Vio-Lence held promise, Machine Head was a different proposition all together. Anthems like "Davidian" are monstrous slabs of metal that, by far, eclipse anything Flynn had previously done. Nevertheless, Burn My Eyes is a classic debut and one that helped launch a huge European groundswell for the band that would result in a tour as Slayer's support act. A few months later, the Head would return and headline the very same venues in which they'd opened for Slayer.

    When it comes to debut albums, Machine Head without question take the cake as having the "ultimate" one to start their career off. Hands down one of the best, if not one of the best metal albums ever. It has all the makings of a classic...speed, chug, melody, groove, aggression, progressive elements, and the occassional solo or two to boot. It's also one of those rare albums that you can put it on, and listen to it in a straight shot without having to skip a track here and there. 11 songs, 11 earth shattering moments of brutality done Bay Area style. If you don't have Burn My Eyes yet, you owe it to yourself to head out to your local record shop and pick up a copy. Metal Head or not, this is straight forward "MUSIC" done right.

    Blood for Blood...

    Good tracks but unfortunately the beginnings of the tracks are often too long. "Old", "Blood for Blood", "A Thousand Lies" and "Davidian" are real good, aggressive ones. The vocalist sings with strong voice. Instruments have well done.
