Mudvayne coming to Palladium Ballroom March 28
Mudvayne's lead singer and guitarist both play in local supergroup band HellYeah with Vinnie Paul.
THE NEW GAME is an electrical storm of musical fury, a lesson in controlled chaos that tempers hard rock, heavy metal, prog rock and sadistic splatters of melody into an onslaught of metallic highs and emotional lows, rushing surges and pronounced blows. The band--CHAD GRAY (vocals), GREG TRIBBETT (guitars), RYAN MARTINIE (bass) and MATT MCDONOUGH (drums)--produced THE NEW GAME with Dave Fortman (Evanescence), capturing the wily charisma and hyper-kinetic energy of a band who survived their seven-year itch by embedding their claws into the heart of their music.
MUDVAYNE has received critical accolades for THE NEW GAME. Dave Wedge of the Boston Herald chose the disc for his “Best Of 2008 List” and said the group has “…mastered the art of melodic mayhem (December 19, 2008).” Playboy included the disc in their December 2008 “Hot Tunes” list, noting: “The melody lulls you before serious heft kicks in” referring to the first single “Do What You Do.”
