MUSHROOMHEAD release their second DVD entitled Vol. 2 on October 28, 2008! It features over 2 hours of unreleased footage both live and behind the scenes. Catch the band as they reveal what drives this crazy, artistic machine.
MUSHROOMHEAD are pioneers in art metal and are at the forefront of this scene. Combining masks with theatrics and a combination of rock and metal, the band creates epic albums that appeal to metal, goth and rock kids. Savior Self continues this tradition, but with a stronger rock sensibility. Their last single cracked the Top 40 on the Active Rock Chart. Similar bands: Slipknot, Tool.

It's a nice break from the whole professional act you see everywhere, it's a peek into the kinds of people they are. It's a look at how hard it is for the new guy to take in having to do what bands do. Throughout the video it's kind of made apparent that Waylon isn't used to the kind of goofing off these guys do, as shown with a scene where he almost beats up Rick (ST1TCH) for hitting him with a water bottle.
Mushroomhead's "Volume II" stays true to the home-video style they wanted to achieve. The whole thing is basically them goofing off, as I've said before: Some of it is inside jokes, some of it isn't, and you're really not usually given the events leading up to it. It's funny, in a special sort of way.
The video comes with a good number of music videos, including 1200, Simple Survival and Burn to name a few. It also comes with live performances for those three tracks I just named, but filmed on one lone camera, and it's kind of messy (In 1200, you can barely hear anything over the drums, which the camera guy is standing next to). It also comes with a commentary for 1200, during which ST1TCH, Skinny and House (ST1TCH and Skinny edited the video, and House directed it) give some insight into the directing and editing of the film, commenting on things like how much blood was on Jeff, the quality of the edits, and how it managed to be shown on MTV.Read more ›
From painting other bands' trailers pink, mocking other bands during their set, attacking one another while members of the band are either sleeping or are not expecting it, or to more improvised practical jokes, the members of Mushroomhead show that in general, they like to have a good time. The DVD breaks up the craziness of the band members, with musical interludes provided in the form of music videos to several of their biggest hits from their latest album "Savior Sorrow". Members such as St1tch, Gravy, and Jeffrey Nothing, tend to be the ones performing the majority of the jokes on their fellow band mates, and it seems as if everyone is pretty good about taking the jokes, all that is, except for Waylon.
The inclusion of the tension that exists between veteran members of the band and the newest addition, Waylon, shows that after being locked in a confined space for over 50 days with someone you already have tension with will only cause these feelings to surface even more. By keeping this portion of the DVD on the film, the band shows that they too are human, and that not everyone gets along 100% of the time.
The video features snippets of live performances, fan greetings, and extensive behind the scenes footage of the band getting ready to perform.Read more ›
