Great album, but it f*cked Chad up.
This was easily one of Mudvayne
's best albums ever. However, the aggression used and the constant screaming the way Chad did it, fucked his scream up permanently. However this album is like glue to me. It's stuck to me. Pretty much every song is a f*cking masterpiece. It's dark, heavy, aggressive. Songs like Mudvayne
, Severed, Dig, and Pharmaecopia are easily some of the best songs I've heard not just of Mudvayne
, but in metal. The thing that stands out in a Mudvayne
album is that they connect with the listener but yet tell Chad's story. Nothing
To Gein is the perfect example of this. In Nothing
To Gein, Chad talks about Serial Killer
and Body Snatcher Edward Gein, but yet links with the listener in a strange way. It's amazing how he in a way creeps into the mind of Ed Gein
, and explains in horrid detail what he was and what his passion was.
Overall, to keep this short and sweet. This album still stands out 15 years later. It's still standing and unique and just it's amazing. Get it.
