1. For the first time hear the band live in its original composition in your hometown.
2. Celebrate the 25th anniversary of the debut album of the iconic metal band.
3. A truly incredible action awaits you.
In 1991, Robb Flynn left the Vio-lence band after a fight with one of the local gangs in Auckland. Subsequently, Flynn started his own band. Many think its name – Machine Head – came from the song Deep Purple. But Robb chose her because she sounds cool.
At that time, musicians did not know that they would become one of the iconic teams in the groove-metal genre. They will be arriving in Kyiv for the first time in honor of the 25th anniversary of the release of their debut album Burn My Eyes.
Burn My Eyes came out in 1994 and immediately became a model of heavy music of the period. Many called Machine Head heavy because of the music and the content they put into the song.
Robb Flynn at Burn My Eyes sang about everything. About the 1992 Los Angeles riot, when thousands of African Americans came out to defend Rodney King. Flynn also covered social inequality, psychological abuse, and politics.
This spectrum of thought has attracted such a wide audience that Burn My Eyes has held the position of Roadrunner's most profitable record for five years. In 1999, the baton was taken over by the debut of several masked men who called themselves Slipknot.
Burn My Eyes sold more than half a million disks, formed a dedicated fan base and opened a new sub-genre of groove metal in thrash metal. Machine Head can therefore be considered a pioneer in this area.
Already in May, the original cast of Burn My Eyes members – Robb Flynn, Logan Mader and Chris Contos – will come together to play Davidian, Old and other notable tracks from the album, which significantly influenced heavy music.
This is a special moment. Important mark in career. It blows my mind away from the idea that I've been in business for 25 years and still make music. And that I have the opportunity to celebrate the anniversary of the album that brought us to where we are now with Chris and Logan. We've been talking about this for a very long time, but here's the time to have a holiday of music we wrote together - Robb Flynn.
