Biography

Peoria IL, United States

Mudvayne is an American band from Peoria, IL. The musical styles of their first two albums were highly innovative, combining elements of with and were considered to be a band for this sound, although the band’s later albums changed direction. The band is best recognizable by their strong drumming, complex bass playing, heavy, gruff and usually angered vocals, heavy guitars and riffs, complex time signatures and frequent rhythm changes. Mudvayne sold over 6,000,000 copies worldwide.

Mudvayne’s first album, L.D. 50, was released in 2000. It received very positive critical acclaim, being most praised for its technical sound, which were uncommon for the rest of the bands in the early 2000s metal scene. The album was #1 at Top Heatseekers, and sold over 500,000 copies in its first four months after release (thus certified Gold by the RIAA). “Dig”, the album’s lead single has won first ever MTV2 Video Music Award. Besides “Dig”, the album’s two other and also highly successive singles, “Death Blooms” and “Nothing to Gein” paved the way for the album. At that time, the band was recognizable for their somewhat bizarre image. In 2001, the band released a live DVD entitled “(L)ive (D)osage 50”, that was recorded in 2001 in their home town of Peoria. The DVD was also certified Gold by the RIAA, selling over 500,000 copies.

Mudvayne’s sophomore release, The End of All Things to Come, proved that the band was more than capable of progressing from a highly praised record successfully.

    This band just sounds better the more I listen to them. It would be crazy of them to not ever do a reunion tour :(

    I wasn't aware of that...and I know, it's a pipe dream, but I think that'd be an incredible line up for Mudvayne.

    Damageplan vocalist and John 5 ?! no way ! I don't know if you are aware that Greg left Hellyeah.

    Ryan and Matt could just continue the band with a new vocalist/guitarist and it could be awesome in new ways...Hellyeah is pretty bland, so I think Chad and Greg are just interested in the more commercial sounds lately. Their choice, but I'd rather see Matt and Ryan reform Mudvayne with a new line up...maybe Damageplan's vocalist and John 5? That'd be AMAZING!

    I think that there is no point in reviving Mudvayne, they just wouldn't be able to kick ass as they used too, but maybe I'm wrong.

    Zach: Actually, what mahahkambaha tried to say does have a lot of sense, and i can tell that he is a fan of good old Mudvayne just like myself by the way he articulated his thoughts. Although i find all of their discography listenable (LD50 and TEOATTC being far ahead of other albums btw), they kind of did lose a bit of their mojo with The New Game and some certain tracks on self-titled that are terrible. I would love to see a real comeback but, like mahahkambaha, i'm not sure if they can achieve it considering direction Chad and Greg took in music and life.

    Ryan's in Mudvayne because HE WANTS to be... (I swear for my own sanity I need to stop reading the asinine comments jackoffs like mahahkambaha make...) No one's being held hostage... Ryan's had what... 7 years to pursue other musical avenues? He's chosen to produce more & even worked w/some R&B ARTISTS... did you know that? Have you searched his name on YouTube? Go watch some interviews before you talk out of your ass... as far as the future for Mudvayne is concerned... "They aren't done yet!" So stop being so dramatic... THIS IS the band he belongs in... this is the band he wants to be a part of. LD 50 is not some "masterpiece" it's a solid debut record... besides the imagery... all Mudvayne is just as COMPLEX as the rest. That's the simple truth. Mudvayne = KILLER BAND but HORRIBLE "Fans" they attracted...

    Holding one of the most talented bassists hostage does no good to anyone. [2] Kurai felt so weak compared to old Mudvayne, I really hope Ryan gets around to that solo album he wanted to do with Matt. I do wish Mudvayne was better known for tracks like Severed and Prod, though....those have far better lyrics than Dig and Everything and Nothing tops it for energy in my opinion, and even has a bass solo.

    The first album these guys ever did is a masterpiece. That being said, they really need to break up and let Matt and Ryan do their own thing; they're stagnating in the vapid-ness of the genre and the music is no better for it. Holding one of the most talented bassists hostage does no good to anyone
