"-1" from their first album, L.D.50 kicked the cobwebs off the walls and had the audience cram closer to the stage for a better look and maybe a feel. The metalfest continued it's barrage with all the subtlety of a bullfight during Sunday mass. While making no apologies, Mudvayne's loud and crass music had the audience eat-up each crimson soaked chord like a vampire let loose at a blood bank. Mudvayne's original sound of sonic bass driven dirges and overly lead-based rhythms found the audience completely under it's control.
Although they may be the step children of Slipknot meets Korn this band creates a more pure version of anarchy on stage. Mudvayne's look is vastly different than how they appeared on the 2001 Grammy Awards. A little more underground mixed with a lot more blood. Regardless of their new look and their success at nurturing their macabre and bizarre appearance, the fans only really understood one thing - the noise.
