MACHINE HEAD‘s Robb Flynn and Jared MacEachern held the latest “Electric Happy Hour” on Friday, August 5 during which they performed the band’s debut album, 1994’s “Burn My Eyes”, in its entirety to mark the LP’s 28th birthday. They were joined for the celebration by original “Burn My Eyes” drummer Chris Kontos. In addition to all of the beer drinking, banter and merriment, they also performed a healthy selection of their favorite cover songs like SLAYER‘s “Black Magic”, METALLICA‘s “Motorbreath”, SEPULTURA‘s “Territory” and EXODUS‘s “A Lesson in Violence”.
Released worldwide on August 9, 1994, “Burn My Eyes” was and still is considered to be one of the most important albums of its genre, garnering the band an unprecedented level of recognition and spawning a myriad of imitators — all from just MACHINE HEAD‘s first record.
