History

Formation (1996–2000)

Formed in 1996 in Peoria, Illinois, Mudvayne formed after they met at the local YMCA and realized they collectively had similar taste in music. Together the band released the Kill, I Oughta EP. The EP received local attention, but it would be another three years until they would break into the mainstream. During this period, bassist Shawn Barclay left the band, and was replaced by Ryan Martinie. : Will it Play in Peoria? United States Illinois Peoria 46. ... This article is about the U.S. State. ...

The End of All Things to Come (2002–2003)

During the L.D. 50 era, the band was famous for wearing extravagant make-up, seen in both their music videos and live concerts, and using unusual stage names such as Kud, Gurrg, RyKnow, and sPaG.[1] With their second album, 2002's The End of All Things to Come, the band changed make-up styles from multicolored face paint to dressing up as aliens and changing the stage names, now they were Chüd, Güüg, Rüd, and Spüg.[2] Mudvayne's reason for wearing such extravagant make-up was, according to the band, to add a visual aspect to their music and to set them apart from other run-of-the-mill metal bands.[3] Mudvayne participated in the Summer Sanitarium Tour 2003, headlined by Metallica, and with the release of the 2003 single "World So Cold", Mudvayne abandoned their use of make-up entirely.[4]. The only video that shows them as aliens is the first version of "Not Falling".

Mudvayne - PopMatters Concert Review (1042 words)
It was, more importantly, Mudvayne's brand of artless wham-bam: the band's mind-numbing repetition, its near-total dismissal of sonic tension, its refusal to try anything fresh or innovative.
Mudvayne churns out the same angst-ridden adrenaline-pushers that have been raging out of "alternative rock" stations since Limp Bizkit came on the scene a decade ago.
Few of Mudvayne's other tunes had any down time at all, and the night henceforth was reduced to the same attention-getting techniques -- repetitious bass drum blast-offs; chugging, metrically precise guitar riffs; excessive profanity (of this, I'm guilty too; see first paragraph), dramatic stop-starts that ceased being dramatic the second time around.
Pearl - The Best Reason To Play Drums (962 words)
Mudvayne watched the number of its fans steadily grow as they toured on the Tattoo the Earth festival and with Disturbed.
Mudvayne criss-crossed the country again as it headlined the second stage of Ozzfest in 2001.
In true Mudvayne fashion, the band accepted the award with a humble speech while wearing blood-spattered white tuxedos and sporting bloody bullet holes in their foreheads.
