Mudvayne–one of the most creative and distinctive bands in the aggressive music world–has announced that they’re reuniting after a 12-year hiatus, and will be performing at all four Danny Wimmer Presents U.S. festivals in 2021: Inkcarceration Music & Tattoo Festival (a headlining performance) in Ohio, Louder Than Life in Kentucky, Aftershock in California and Welcome To Rockville in Florida.

Mudvayne formed in 1996 and has sold over six million records worldwide, earning Gold certification for three albums (L.D. 50, The End Of All Things To Come, Lost and Found). The band is known for their sonic experimentation, innovative album art, face and body paint, masks and uniforms. Mudvayne is Chad Gray (vocals), Greg Tribbett (guitar, backing vocals), Matthew McDonough (drums, synthesizer) and Ryan Martinie (bass). Continue reading Mudvayne Reunites After A 12-Year Hiatus→
Artist: Mudvayne Title: “Mudvayne” Label: Epic Records Release Date: 12/21/2009 Genre: Math Metal Rating: 4/5
The fifth Mudvayne release is actually self-titled and musically finds the band taking a step back in the direction that their fans expect them to follow while also being one that calls to mind their earlier years in terms of some of the ideas that they are presenting. If this is confusing you then should realize how their previous release of “The New Game” had a more Rock and Roll vibe to it and was something that might have left the longest standing Mudvayne fans scratching their heads in wonder about where their favorite band was going. Now back to brass tacks on “Mudvayne”, I am happy to report that the album is an infectious one, and a very consistent listen that finds each and every track fulfilling your specific Mudvayne needs. The technical displays of Math Metal prowess are there but the album does not adventure so deep into that territory that it risks losing your interest and instead delivers a number of catchy hooks and solid riffs that when paired together in this fashion give you some great tracks. Chad seems to be singing better than ever and had me sold on the album by the time they reached “Scream With Me” which came as my first favorite on the release. “Closer” is also good and “1000 Mile Journey” as well – the latter track being probably the heaviest of the albums offerings.

Artist: Mudvayne Venue: The Fillmore NY (New York, NY) Opener: 10 Years, Snot Date: 12/16/2008 Label: Epic Records
Having seen them a number of times over the past couple of years, I had to say that with the show that Mudvayne puts on for their fans that they are worth checking out when they come to your town. Tonight’s fun would probably be my last Metal show of the year by the looks of it and it was the perfect closer to what amounted to be an incredible list of shows. December was quieter than some of the other months this year and I found it to be a bit of a reprieve in some sense. Last week we found In Flames visiting and that was fun and just this past weekend was the Trans-Siberian Orchestra who served up the Holiday heaviness in perfect order. Tonight’s Metal menu would not only feature Mudvayne, but also 10 Years and Snot. The fun would take place at The Fillmore NY and after some excellent pre-game hanging at the nearby Watering Hole, I would find myself with friends at a sold out venue. Here is how the story went for those of you who did not take part in it. Continue reading Mudvayne @ Fillmore at Irving Plaza (12/16/2008)→
Artist: Korn Venue: Continental Airlines Arena (East Rutherford, NJ) Opener: Mudvayne, 10 Years Date: 3/28/2006 Label: Virgin Music
Given this would be my first time witnessing them I would safely have to say that Korn is an interesting phenomenon up close and personal. The appeal that the band has to a segment of the music listening public is uncanny to behold. It is an allegiance that most bands can only hope for after many years of performance and not all find themselves being as lucky. Tonight at The Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford N.J., the levels of angst and teenage rage against the system would be at an all time high. Joining Korn on their journey into the psyche of American youth would be the bands 10 Years and Mudvayne. Continue reading Korn @ Continental Airlines Arena (3/28/2006)→
