Biography

Cleveland, Ohio, United States (1993 – present)

Mushroomhead is an American outfit that emerged in the 1990s. Mushroomhead’s forceful yet melodic alternative metal incorporates elements of hip-hop, as well as industrial metal.

Formed by drummer Skinny in 1993, Mushroomhead was originally a side-project for members of other Cleveland bands. They played their first show on October 22nd of that year. The members wore a variety of masks to hide their identity and for theatrical impact. One of the vocalists, J Mann, eventually stopped wearing a mask and just put white make-up on his face with black make-up on his mouth and around his eyes, similar to make-up worn in the movie Dead Presidents.

Mushroomhead quickly became one of Cleveland’s top local acts and developed a devoted fanbase. Mushroomhead’s self-titled debut album was released independently in 1995, followed by Superbuick in 1996 and M3 in 1999. Over the course of those 3 albums the band had several line-up changes: Bassist Mr Murdernickel was replaced by Pig Benis after the first album, female dancer Roxy left, guitarist Dinner was replaced by Gravy, male dancer Bronson went to playing samples and then took over as 2nd Guitarist when J.J. Righteous left. During this time Mushroomhead was the #1 underground band in Cleveland.

Roadrunner Records approached Mushroomhead with a record contract which they declined.

    It's even funnier that Mushroomhead and Slipknot are different musically.

    Не понимаю. Почему их сравнивают со слипами, по моему только костюмы не обычные - единственное в чем они похожи

    Slipknot ripoff? Two years before Slipknot formed? Funny how that works.

    Маски круче, чем у слипов, а музыка разнообразней.

    Группа супер, раньше их вообще считал за закос на слипов, но послушал, вроде не плохо.

    Отличная банда.У них очень интересная подача, да и сам материал.Их все сравнивают со Слипами(или наоборот), так Грибоголовые намного лучше.Они интереснее что ли)

    I hoped that Sorrow Savior was a successful reload after Popson left the band, but. It's hard for me to listen this music, i'm done of Jeffrey's vocals and Redneck's Popson-alike. Tis a garbage not music. It's my vision. Cause when one band makes a new album, I do not start dancin in a rapture just because i saw tis bandname 'and it's ok for me, no matter what I hear - it will be ok because [bandname]'.
