Lyrics. One major thing I look for in good metal are lyrics. One of the things that drew me here, but I'll address that later... Many have called this album a masterpiece. I don't QUITE agree. I don't personally think it's a masterpiece. However, Machine Head's Burn My Eyes IS extremely great. It's a hair or two shy of being a mastepiece in my eyes. That is no small thing. Why do I say so? Let's take a track from the CD and analyze it, shall we? Let's take "Davidian". The song begins with an explosive drum intro, then fills in with a nice, heavy riff. No, the riffs are not the heaviest EVER, like some say. But... when I first that beginning, I was hooked! The song continues on for some time, then speeds up and Rob Flynn starts singing. Yes, singing! I call that singing. Using his voice. And, he does have one set of pipes on him. Only when the music paused and the famous line delivered, did I feel the lyrical power at work here.
"LET FREEDOM RING WITH A SHOTGUN BLAST!!!"
That line is great! Simple and well delivered, it made me listen to the whole album through just in hopes of finding more good tidbits of soul-touching words. I found many such excerpts. Not only that, but the music is still pretty heavy nonetheless, and thrashes and crunches in the proper spots. The double bass drums thunder along, and the solos are nice and sludgy-sounding. Burn My Eyes might not be a masterpiece to me, but I clearly understood why many people thought so. Every song deserves a listen. Find your own favorites. Enjoy the CD. I'm surprised at how recent this is. 1994? Wow...Good lyrics, nice solos, evenly heavy guitar and bass. Fast speed. Burn My Eyes is great. An ALMOST masterpiece. Get it!

With "Burn My Eyes," Machine Head ratcheted up the intensity of early thrash metal to create a monstrous masterpiece of epic proportions. Call this oversimplification if you will, but this album is heavy, heavy, heavy. However, there is far more to it than just heaviness. "Burn My Eyes" is also distinctive, diverse, and intelligent. And did I mention it's heavy?
Right from the beginning, Machine Head make it clear what you, the listener, are in for. Opener "Davidian" is a chugging monster with massive riffs, lots of bass, and precise drumming, and as far as memorable choruses go it's hard to beat Robb Flynn shouting "Let freedom ring with a shotgun blast!" The next two songs follow the same pattern, so it's somewhat of a surprise when the band starts out slow on "None But My Own." But it works, just like everything else of the album. Just listen to track seven, "A Nation on Fire." The verses are pretty slow, but the song builds in intensity through the pre-chorus and and another insanely anthemic chorus (perhaps no album has more memorable refrains than this one). And then, four and a half minutes in, when the song would have every right to end, it takes off on a blindingly fast thrash fest. But whatever speed the band is at, be it fast, slow, or midtempo, it's always suitably caustic and grinding for a thrash album.
Everything I've mentioned above would be at least enough for a four-star rating, but what really sets "Burn My Eyes" apart are the lyrics. Although Machine Head talk about societal problems, in the grand tradition of such thrash pioneers as Metallica and Megadeth, the lyrical content of "Burn My Eyes" is often anything but negative.

I have allready reviewed "Burn My Eyes", but I feel I must review it again. A lot of people consider Machine Head a nu-metal band because of their lackluster (but good for its time) "Burning Red". This album is beyond heavy; Logan Madder's fleet fingered guitar playing is reminiscent of Slayer's Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman, and his solo on "A Thousand Lies" makes the hair on the back of my neck stand on end. Robb Flynn sings with such intensity, while Chris Kontos speed thrashes through every song, while Adam Duce keeps the low end with his heavy bass licks. The standout tracks are "Davidian", "Old", "A Thousand Lies", and "I'm Your God Now", and if you've only listened to the newer Machine Head albums but never listened to "Burn My Eyes", you will be shocked. Arhue Luster has nothing on Logan Madder, Logan was a big a part of Machine Head as Robb Flynn is, and the band sorely lacks him today. All in all, "Burn My Eyes" is one of, if not the, finest metal debut of all time. This was how real heavy metal was done.

To review this album, is like reviewing the Bible of metal albums. The album begins with an insane drum fill from the hands of Chris Kontos, and crashes in soon after with the rest of the band: Davidian has begun. This song alone, has to convince any listener, that what Machine Head is/was about, is power. This album, in my mind, and I'm sure I'm not alone when saying this, is one of, if not the single best examples of metal today. Robb Flynn's vocals are unprecedented. Not only can he growl with the best of them, but he proves that he can truly sing (I'm Your God Now, Nation on Fire, . . .). The Logan/Robb guitar work is brilliant. They combine their efforts in some awesome solos, and along with drummer Chris Kontos and bassist Adam Duce drive this album from strength to strength. Though I have to point out, that if you happen to be a drummer, and listening to this album, you will be amazed. Chris Kontos is brilliant. If you don't believe me, then get this album just to hear him alone, I guarantee you that you will thank me afterwards. But if you listen to the follow up albums you will be soarly dissapointed by the drums, this is because Chris only played on Burn My Eyes. Though I have to admit that the drumming on The More Things Change (1997), is far better than the drums on 1999's The Burning Red, which marked a visible change in MH's musical direction, and style. It should also be noted that this album was previously the biggest selling debut by any band on the Roadrunner label, although that achievement has since been surpassed by the 9-man army more commonly known as Slipknot. So, I guess what I'm trying to get across to you, is that this album is unbelievable. Vivid lyrics. Powerful guitars. Insanity on drums.Read more ›
