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.

    I think the "djent" movement has to acknowledge that a lot of the sound today is heavily influenced by "Nu-metal" bands. [3]

    LD 50 is their best album, 14 years later and it still holds up! I think the "djent" movement has to acknowledge that a lot of the sound today is heavily influenced by "Nu-metal" bands. Never really cared for the tags to me metal is metal. \\m/

    L.D. 50 & The End of All Things to Come = Phenomenal. Lost and Found = pretty good The New Game & s/t = *facepalm* [4] Although, the title track in The New Game is effing badass, so that makes it a little less facepalm than their self-titled album.

    v the question is... why did he post it on April 1st? Can't pick a day when people will be more likely to believe what he says? XD

    So given how much of an immature ingrate Mudvayne's guitarist is being on their Facebook page (and he's in his mid 30s, even if the fans can be obnoxious on there they just want a sign of life from the band!) I'm going to go out on a limb and say Mudvayne is dead. Just unofficially dead. The sighs started that passion was being lost in Lost and FOund for me and the tragedy is that if Chad and their guitarist really want to try, they could make something like a mix of the self-titled's technicality with the first two albums' strong rhythms.

    I think Beyond the Pale doesn't get enough love...have you guys heard that bass intro? It was one of the few truly great moments on the self-titled.

    Know Forever is one of the most ruthless, spine-breaking songs I've ever heard in my life. They should really make more tracks like that

    Ok, the Pantera-wannabe-southernshit-kidding with Hellyeah is over? I want a new album.

    The End Of All Things To Come is their most mature album. LD50 was a brilliant debut, L&F isn't bad, but TEOATTC was a whole another space. Kinda sad they didn't explore a bit more like they did then. Chad and Greg are too much into Hellyeah for Mudvayne to be a story for itself.

    Haha, I never know The Beginning of All Things to End was so NU. Ryan joining the band definitely added a lot overall.
