Mudvayne

L.D. 50

No Name / Epic

L.D. 50 by Mudvayne is one of the hardest-hitting and assaulting records you are going to find these days. I am serious, there are parts of songs that you just want to punch someone in the fucking face every single beat, it leaves nothing unscathed. At first listen, Mudvayne seem like they are pretty typical of the plethora of the new mall-metal bands that are out these days, but I have to admit that this is a pretty impressive record. Maybe a good comparison would be a more metal Slipknot with less cheese involved. As far as I know, they don’t have a bunch of ignorant fans either! Cool artwork.

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
