Burn My Eyes

Machine Head

1994

This simply one of the best pure heavy-metal albums of the 90s.  It kind of sounds like a west coast version of Pantera, at least in terms of groove/riffs/aggression, but it doesn't have that whole Texas attitude thing going on.  It's not quite as good as Pantera's 1st 2 albums, but it is pretty damn close.  It's arguably heavier than Pantera at times...in any event, ultimately Machine Head have their own take on heavy-metal that is fairly unique and undeniably badass.  Honestly this album can hold it's own against practically any other metal album of the 90s.  Riffs and hooks galore, and plenty of aggression and west coast swag to boot.
