Mudvayne: Showing Face

There is a good article at Time Off, an Australian music publication, on the band Mudvayne. Here are a few excerpts:

In many respects, Mudvayne have reflected a return to theatrics for rock’n’roll that references the histories and movements probably most often associated with the 70s and early 80s. While they (and most of their fellow image-based metal counterparts) might not want to acknowledge it, they are the echoed fall-out from 80s hair-metal acts such as Wasp, Mötley Crüe and Kiss.

“There’s a temptation to really work at getting the tightest sounds you can and that’s all well and good, but this time I think we’ve let there be loose parts. We’ve taken a step back from that editing and just gone for making it feel like us playing.”
