Image of Mushroomhead


Known for its theatrical live show and the black masks that most of its members wear on-stage, Mushroomhead is one of the more unique and adventurous alternative metal outfits that emerged in the 1990s. And the Cleveland band's music is as interesting as its image; Mushroomhead's forceful yet melodic alterna-metal incorporates elements of hip-hop, punk, and goth rock as well as ...

I've been a Mushroomhead fan for a very long time. This latest offering from the guys in Filthy Hands does not disappoint. Overall, the sound is very reminiscent of the first three albums. New members Church and Dr. F bring a slightly new flavor, but their learning of the back catalog is apparent in the styling on guitar and bass. Like many 'shroomheads, my favorite album is XIII, but there's a little of everything on this album. Tracks "Graveyard Du Jour" and "Out Of My Mind" are very similar to XIII. "All Apologies" is a great opener, though not as strong as Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children's "Come On." On the flipside, while BSfUC has a couple of standout tracks with a chunk of studio filler, this whole album is pretty solid. As a collection of tracks, this is probably only second to XIII, but I don't see any individual tracks here that top some of the previous offerings, like "12 Hundred," "Come On," or my personal Favorite, "43."

The Adele cover Rumor Has It was an odd choice, but they managed to make it fit. Like covers of Pink Floyd's Empty Spaces and Seal's Crazy, Mushroomhead gave it a different twist, while remaining true to the original. Sticth's fingerprints are all over this tack, with lots of scratches, sirens, and whistles in the background. Vocals? If you like Jeffery Nothing, Waylon, or J.Mann, you'll be happy. All three feature prominently on this album. Skinny's drums are solid, as always. The only weak point for me was the additional percussion. I hoped for more from Roberto Diablo. Live performance highlights are always the water drums. There just wasn't anything that I felt had the same power as "43," 12 Hundred," or "Come On." I just don't see anything on this album that I expect to blow my mind or eardrums in that way.

I was unaware that J-Mann had returned to the band before listening to this album, but right off the bat I knew he was there. I think I go against a lot of fans who have been with Mushroomhead for a long time in saying that I LOVE what Waylon brings to the band; his vocal range is just something that J-Mann and Nothing don't have and I really enjoy his screaming/growling vocals as well. That said, having J back is also a huge addition, and just seems like he never left.

I'll also go against the grain and say Savior Sorrow WAS my favorite Mushroomhead album, but after feeling a little let down by Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children, this one is nearly perfect! It opens incredibly strong with Our Apologies, which prominently features all three vocalists. I like the comment by another viewer that Stitch has his fingerprints all over this one and agree wholeheartedly.

I can't think of another song as just plain different as QWERTY in recent memory. I cannot listen to this song enough, it is so perfectly Mushroomhead. Devils Be Damned is another favorite, along with For Your Pleasure.

Really the whole album is great, I don't think there's any filler on this one!

On album number eight, Mushroomhead continue to prove to the world that they are first-and-foremost rooted in angsty, heavy nu-metal aggression while at the same time filtering in the increased sense of subtlety, restraint, and textured found on some of the band's later works (i.e. 2006's "Savior Sorrow"). Then, once some undeniable industrial-rock overtones, including some of the most prominent and catchy turntable work this side of D.J. Lethal, are added to the mix, and the end result is "The Righteous And The Butterfly," which just might be the Cleveland-based ninepiece's best and most accomplished and well-rounded musical statement (to date). If nothing else, then it is at least, without question, their best record since 2002's "XX."

Diving right into the thick of things, "Our Apologies" is a brutal introductory mosh pit anthem with a heavy, lumbering guitar lic k and churning rhythm to go along with its really memorable vocal patterns and positively killer choruses. And the next song, the booming "How Many Times," completes the album's potent one-two punch, although technically, the record does open with a three-pronged attack, seeing as how the succeeding "Devils Be Damned" is filled with brutal, memorable, call-and-response riffing that hits the listener like an upper-cut square to the gut.

"Qwertly" plays more of a gritty rap-rock song than anything else (thus evoking the band's earlier days), as does the piano-peppered, Marilyn Manson-esque "Portraits Of The Poor." "Childlike" (which features a cameo from 10,000 Cadillac's Jus Mic), then, opens by bringing that beautiful piano line back into the mix, albeit momentarily, as a strong, distorted, fuzzed-out bass grumble does shift onto the scene, thus taking the band into their more familiar aggressive territory.

This vinyl LP sounds amazing. The Record is well pressed and has a decent weight to it. It is not 180g audiophile but it is close. It arrived in perfect condition and on time. A very heavy album with blistering guitar and vicious drum beats. The production value seems to have gotten higher sense there last two albums and the new members of the band fit in perfectly. With all three singers being utilized for every song on the album, you would think it might get a bit cluttered up and they would almost sound like there fighting over time on the microphone, but that is not the case. Waylon, Jeff and Jay Mann all work together wonderfully. As a Mushroomhead fan, one would be hard-pressed to ask for more than what this album delivers. Hey big bonus to hearing it on vinyl, through some decent speakers is that you can truly hear every subtle nuance of this album in a raw format that digital music just can't touch. This is a good album in any format but if you want to truly immerse yourself in the sound, there's no better way to do it then with the vinyl LP.
