Bay Area metal giants MACHINE HEAD, who recently announced the dates for their »Burn My Eyes« 25th anniversary tour, have re-recorded the legendary debut album in its entirety. The recording line-up features original BME alulmni Chris Kontos and Logan Mader as well as singer and guitarist Robb Flynn and bass player Jared MacEachern. The recordings were done at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, California.
More play-through’s to follow!
Recently the band sat down and re-visited and discussed the album for the first time in over 2 decades. This often hilarious conversation sees them trying to remember where they wrote the songs on their debut album, discussing how they got together back in 1992, and the time they set off the smoke alarms in the Fantasy recording studio from smoking so much weed.

The tour kicks off in Germany on October 5th in Freiburg, and continue across Europe and the UK, wrapping in Dublin, Ireland on the 8th of November. The U.S. leg will be announced in due course; those dates are set for November into December as the tour makes its way around the globe.
Building on their wildly popular ‘An Evening With…’ format, these not-to-be-missed shows will be a three-hour musical extravaganza, comprised of two parts:
Part I – will feature a battery of MACHINE HEAD’s modern classics, such as ‘Imperium,’ ‘Halo,’ and, ‘The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears,’ featuring frontman/guitarist Robb Flynnand bassist Jared MacEachern performing alongside two, soon-to-be-announced ragers on guitar and drums.
Part II – will feature the Bay Area band’s classic debut album, »Burn My Eyes« played in its entirety for the first time ever. And if somehow this historical event could not be monumental enough, taking the stage for this part of the set will be »Burn My Eyes«-era alumni and MACHINE HEAD’s original drummer Chris Kontos and original guitarist Logan Mader.
