See Machine Head’s Full Hometown Show on ‘Burn My Eyes’ 25th Anniversary Tour

Last August marked the 25th anniversary of Machine Head‘s landmark debut LP, Burn My Eyes, and since fall of last year, bandleader Robb Flynn has been celebrating that milestone in a big way. Following the departure of guitarist Phil Demmel and drummer Dave McClain, the group’s self-proclaimed “general” reunited with guitarist Logan Mader (now of Once Human) and drummer Chris Kontos, both of whom played on Burn My Eyes (Mader also appeared on its follow-up, 19976’s The More Things Change…), and the reconstituted lineup — rounded out by bassist Jared MacEachern — has been touring the world, playing the 1994 classic album in its entirely. As if that were not enough, the band also enlisted two new full-time members — Vogg Kiełtyka (Decapitated) and Matt Alston (ex-Devilment) — who have been joining Flynn and MacEachern each night for a whole other set comprised of modern Machine Head cuts. The Burn My Eyes 25th anniversary trek recently tore through The Fox Theater in Machine Head’s hometown of Oakland, California, for three hours of pummeling metal, including an array of headbanging covers. See pro-shot official video of both of the band’s epic sets — and the full setlists — below.
