A violent, Grinding experience that you wish never ends

This was Machine Heads debut album and what a way to start a career. Musically, the album is just fantastic. Guitarists & Vocalist Robb Flynn and Logan Mader lay down some truly awesome riffs and solos that will stay in your head for a while.
The drum work by Chris Kontos (who left soon after the album was released) at times reminds me of Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden). The bass guitar by Adam Duce occasionally gets drowned out by the other instruments but does a good job at keeping the rhythm.
If anything must be said about Burn My Eyes is that its downright angry, every riff on every song is so whiplashingly brutal words cant really describe it. Burn My Eyes quickly became a Roadrunner Records best seller and was the labels best-selling debut album for a number of years and I can see why and would be surprised if it didnt.
This is my favourite debut album by any artist of all-time! if you dont already own this album then what are you waiting for?
The recommended tracks to listen to are
A Thousand Lies
None But My Own
Blood for Blood
Im Your God Now

An absolute classic album, every song is brutal. The blackeining, as good as it is, doesn't come close to this masterpiece.

I bought this album when it was released and I can't believe how long ago that was. I'm still listening to the album today which shows how great it is. I've got all machine heads stuff and I rate this one as easily the best. Right from the first track to the last this is a great heavy album that every metal fan should have in their CD collection.

If you love metal, you have to have this album. Pure amazing, and has not aged a bit! I am ordering on CD now - had the original on tape, but need to upgrade at this stage!

An album that smacks you in the face!

I bought this album when it first came out way back in 1994,and from the very first riff it is heavy till the end.If you are thinking though that its all screaming and banging,its not, robb flynn has also got a very melodic voice,check out A nation on fire! The best songs are Davidian a very angry song,Old and None But My Own!Just go and buy it in my opinion one of the best debut albums ever!!!Just seen them support Metallica at Wembley,as a late inclusion they were awesome!!Your cd collection will be better for it!
