Default Ryan's Heavy Metal Music Reviews: Mushroomhead - "XIII"

Theatrical metal group Mushroomhead has been nothing less than an underground metal sensation for around a decade. Hailing from Cleveland, OH, they blend heavy metal riffs, styles of rap, tribal drums, samples, keyboards, twin vocalists and a stage show that avid followers have called nothing less than intense. Mushroomhead was being called the best kept metal secret for years by fans. And it was the same fans that were a little skeptical at the news that their underground heroes had signed to major label, Universal. Fearing that the execs at the huge label would try and tone down the over the top feel of the band, many wondered if the band could keep the level of intensity tha they all loved. To help the fans rest at ease, the band and the label released "XX", a collection of previously released, remastered and retooled tracks from Mushroomheads older releases. With that keeping the growing number of fans happy at the moment, the band set at work recording a new CD.

With the release of "XIII" under the eye of Universal, Mushroomhead shows that they not only have kept all the power and uniqueness that got them here, but they seem more focused and musically tight as a group. The first single, "Sun doesn't rise", is tried and true Mushroomhead. Released with the Freddy vs Jason CD, the band still shows the power that many thought they might lose with Universal. The rest of the CD is 13 tracks of ass kicking metal. The fact that the band has 8 members adds a depth to the music that few bands can achieve. And twin vocalists seem to tell the same story from different points of view. One voilent sounding, the other mournful, but both angry about it.

The CD itself is well put together, with the first track kicking your teeth in, leading you to the 13 part mugging of the whole thing. While there are a few tracks that stand out in your head, there are others that seem to blend together. One track will almost seem like the next. But there are tracks that firmly stand out from the rest, the mournful "Nowhere to go" and "One more day" (a female vocalist was brought in for this song", the rageful "Kill Tomorrow" and "Eternal" (we are told this is the heaviest song ever on the CD), and the monumental 8 minute 51 second "Destroy the world around me", are a few that will stand up and beat you for your wallet on this disk.

All in all, it's a good CD with few flaws. Compared to much of the nu metal and baseline metal being released today Mushroomhead shows that they can roll with the big boys and still whoop them in front of their own mommas. It should please harcore metal fans and casual fans, while bringing in new followers. These guys don't fuck around...


Mushroomhead - "XIII"

Ryan's rating: 4/5

I kinda like Mushroomhead. I don't think they're the best but they're pretty good. It's strange how a band can sign with Universal and be unheard of by a lot of people

They just signed. Only been with them long enough to release a CD of re-releases and this new one. They're in pretty good rotation on MTV's Headbanger's Ball and Fuse's Urnanium.

Oh, I see. I've seen them a few times on Headbanger's Ball and some of their songs have popped up on some free mix CDs that the music stores give out. I like them.

Yeah, well stop. Because I like them, and we're not allowed to agree on anything.
