Overview

The artist credits on Mudvayne's second major-label album, The End of All Things to Come (not to be confused with the 2001 reissue of its 1997 indie album, Kill I Oughtta, retitled The Beginning of All Things to End), might suggest that the band has undergone a complete personnel change, but in fact the group members have just changed their pseudonyms. Singer Kud now calls himself Chüd, guitarist Gurrg has become Güüg, bassist Ryknow is R-üD, and drummer sPaG is Spüg. Otherwise, not much has changed for the band in the two years since its first album for Epic Records, L.D. 50. The musicians still churn out standard-issue heavy metal thrash à la Metallica to support Chüd's nihilistic pronouncements, usually sung in an enraged howl. But much else has changed surrounding the band. A year and a half's worth of gigs opening for others propelled L.D. 50 to gold status as Mudvayne's cartoonish costumes and makeup were embraced by metal fans for their novelty and, oh yes, the September 11 terrorist attacks altered the aesthetic climate in which the band functions. At least, you'd have thought it did. Mudvayne still thinks nothing of putting out lyrics like, "I need a barrel of cyanide, a pile of strychnine until the whole damn world is dead start over again" (from the album's title song), as if it hadn't become painfully obvious that there actually are people in the world willing to act on such ridiculous sentiments. The amusement value of such posturing is reduced when reality comes so close to dark fantasy. To Mudvayne, however, it all still seems to be a joke.

Great songs, great album altogther. First listen to Shadow of a Man and A World so Cold (those are the best in my opinion). I bought this CD in November and didn't listen to it until recently and now I can't stop listening.

I don't like this release at all, but this band has some potential to actually make an intelligent release in the next 5 years. If they can expand on their good influences and stop with the overblown dramatics, they could definitely go places. But for now, they are stuck making more lifeless metal music. Definitely good musicianship from the bassist and the drummer though.

Yes! It's finally here after a typical Australian 1 month delay. This takes a couple of listens to really get into but after having done so it's quite good. It does differ from LD50 but not in a bad way. It lacks a little bit of that ferocious pace all Mudvayne fans are used but the make it up in other ways. This albums more melodic than their previous and some of the songs are almost ballad like. The album flows well and the angers still however they've found a different way to express it. Tracks such as (per)version of a truth and world so cold are examples of how much time and effort they put into the album, and proof that even when u think a bands at their peek they can still better themselves. A must for mudvayne fans.

We've all waited for it, and it's finally here. "The End of All Things to Come" blows L.D. 50 (Their previous album which was insane, unique, and rockn' all around) out of the water. The riffs are heavier, Spuug's double kick drum sound is harder, and Ru-D's bass is even better. But I think it's Chud (Formerly Kud) who has improved the most. His voice is louder and harder, but it still has that melodic touch. As for the album, there is only one instrumental track (Unlike L.D. 50's 6 or 7) and the songs are more in the vein of "Dig" rather than, say, "Severed". Mudvayne fans will not be dissapointed and any body new to the band will find the album an insane tour de force.

Mudvayne is an excellent example of what Metal should be, the intense screams and harmonies mesh beautifully with a pounding, grinding guitar and incredibly technical bass line. The drumming is on point and the lyrics...It's Mudvayne, the lead singer is a poet, his points are crued but well thought out and perfectly orchestrated to meet his voice and the thundering brilliance of the rest of the band. This is an excellent CD, I recommend listening to any Mudvayne album a few times to appreciate it.

Mudvayne has returned to the Metal Scene with more powerful riffs and screaming lyrics from its great lead singer Chud. Even with new names and a new image its still the same old Mudvayne.

With the way this cd sounds, you would think that mudvayne has come to an end.this is not as good as their first cd.The good tracks are 1,3,8,9,12,13.Track 10 and perversion of a truth are pretty good,but they are different.This was a let down from ld50,but does have some good stuff.

while its just as good as there other cds..L.D.50 Kill I outta(Now the begining of all things to come) this album has a slight tinge of mainstream without seeling out a la Good Charllot

This album is no disappointment. Its every bit as solid and heavy as L.D.50. It's more of the same but with a new dimension, Mudvayne manages to stay true to their roots without re-hashing the same ideas. Fantastic music, and amazing artwork. Big props for printing the lyrics this time also.
