TGF Recording Artist
I probably listened to LD 50 for 2-3months straight when it dropped. One of the few Nu-metal era records I can still listen to without feeling gross.
I am so weird with Mudvayne. I think they have some awesome songs. Their visuals have always made me twitch. And the Hellyeah association is bordering on criminal. But when they are in their zone and playing to their strengths; they KILL.
I get it. It made sense for them but was a little too jnco-painted black nails thing. The music spoke for itself though. There was actually some really good underrated nu-metal bands thst had some really good tunes if you were a fan of the genre.Yeah, the visual thing was something I laughed at originally. "They f*cking put that sh*t on every show?!" and then just ignored once I became a fan. Hellyeah was the biggest metal letdown after Dimebag getting shot. I was so thrilled when I heard about the project happening and then.....ugh. At first I was thinking "Ok, maybe they're just pumpin' the radio songs...." but nope!
I'm not sure I even listened to their last album all the way through. The further away from the prog stuff they got, the less interested I was, but yeah, those first 3 albums made them a favorite for sure.
