Another good factor is that they also aren't nearly as mainstream as most other bands.
Some good songs are World So Cold, Happy?, Forget to Remember, and Fall Into Sleep
Dv - Devestation = whats been done to them, therefore they like to sing about
Ay - Asylum = The protection afforded by a sanctuary a quiet place to forget these problems
Ne - i am Nothing
i am Everything
2) the best vocals and lyrics i have ever heard in a metal band
MuDvAyNe embrace darker poetry for their lyrics and use repetitive, minor key riffs to create their distinctive sounds.
One of the greatest ironies, perhaps, is that some of the Mudvayne fans here believe that Slipknot suck, when in fact Mudvayne are managed and produced by Shawn (Clown, "6") Crahan...who is a member of Slipknot.
