Influential West Coast heavy metal quartet Machine Head formed in 1992. The band's D.I.Y. work ethic, aggressive playing, and relentless self-promotion eventually landed them a deal with Roadrunner Records. Their blistering debut, 1992's Burn My Eyes, blended the powerful modern attack of Pantera and Alice in Chains with the volatility of classic thrash bands like Death Angel and Slayer. Later recordings found the band blending speed and progressive metal with dizzying results. Excessive touring and a high-octane lifestyle took its toll on Machine Head, but they fought through their demons on 1999's Burning Red, resulting in the hit "From This Day," their first commercial single and video. ~ James Christopher Monger
