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 really hate to be the guy that only likes the old stuff, but there was a real magic on those first two records.

    If they come back they need to go back to the old aggressive style from LD50 and TEOATTC. I'm not down for all that soft shit.

    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!
