MUSHROOMHEAD picture
Mushroomhead is an alternative metal outfit that emerged in the 1990s. Mushroomhead's forceful yet melodic alterna-metal incorporates elements of hip-hop, metal, alternative as well as industrial.

Formed by drummer Skinny in 1993, Mushroomhead was originally a side-project for members of other Cleveland bands. They played their first show on October 22nd of that year. The members wore a variety of masks to hide their identity and for theatrical impact. One of the vocalists, J Mann, eventually stopped wearing a mask and just put white make-up on his face with black make-up on his mouth and around his eyes, similar to make-up worn by black metal bands.

Mushroomhead quickly became one of Cleveland's top local acts and developed a devoted fanbase. Mushroomhead's self-titled debut album was released independently in 1995, followed by Superbuick in 1996 and M3 in 1999. Over the course of those 3 albums the band had several line-up

MUSHROOMHEAD Beautiful Stories For Ugly Children

5.0 out of 5 stars Mushroomhead - Beautiful Stories For Ugly Children, 12 Aug 2012 This review is from: Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children (Audio CD) Beautiful Stories For Ugly Children is either the seventh, fourth or third album by the criminally underrated band Mushroomhead, depending on your views on record contracts and compilations. It is their second album with Waylon Reavis in one of the band's two lead vocalist positions. Since its release in 2010, the band have lost Pig Benis, Gravy and Lil Dan, who all appear on the album, as members.

Despite still containing large chunks of influence from Alternative and Industrial music; Beautiful Stories' is arguably their most straight forwardly Metal release to date; with a lot more double-kicks, chugging and up-tempo tracks than on their previous albums. At times, there is even a very clear Zack Wylde/Dimebag Darrell feel present in the tails to the riffs and there is a hell of a lot more lead guitar than on any previous Mushroomhead release.

Furthermore, there are also a lot less of the dark and creepy moments from the band's early work to be found here. There is nothing like `Chancre Sore' or `The Wrist' on the album for example, which may in fairness be a bit disappointing for certain fans, but the album definitely does make up for ignoring one aspect of the band's sound with its consistency and the excellent, memorable songwriting.

Right from the beginning, the album is charged and exciting, kicking off with the very fun opening track `Come On' which pretty much sums up the entire new focus in direction in one track.

The next four tracks are all excellent, very much following in that same direction, but with enough variety each for the album not to sound homogenous, then from that point on the album lets a lot of variety sink in. There are still touches of Faith No More's influence present in the vocal patterns and choice of keyboard sounds, but you'll also get a really Tony Iommi sounding riff here, a bit that could fit on a Chimaira record here or even a vaguely Ministry-esque drumbeat there too.

When this is focused yet varied musical direction is combined with the hugely improved production job and mix (courtesy of their drummer Steve `Skinny' Felton) over the last record, and the fact of Waylon's voice being an established part of the band already this time around, this is a very impressive and instantly enjoyable record, arguably even their best to date. If you have anything more than a casual interest in the band, this is definitely not an album to skip.

Highlights include the faster, heavier tracks like `Come On,' `Darker Days' and `Burn The Bridge,' as well as the interesting percussion-based `Harvest The Garden' and the proggy `Holes In The Void' which sounds like an even more intense reworking of their cover of Pink Floyd's `Empty Spaces.'

That being said however, there is not a single track here that is forgettable, weak or out of place; it is a remarkably consistent album and the kind where you can have a new favourite track on every listen.

The songs are all big, the riffs are all satisfying and there are lead guitar breaks going off left, right and center. The combination of this direction and the existing styles of vocals, keyboards and electronics from the `Xii' album in particular, results in a brilliant and utterly enjoyable record.

Overall; for a fan of the band, this album is an absolute must-have. It may take a few listens to come around to if you primarily like the band through the filter of a more Industrial or Alternative fanship but will likely become your favourite Mushroomhead album if you listen to it through the filter of a more Metal fanship.
