An incredible experience going through the experience of listening to this album. The End of All Things to Come is a cyclone of emotional, aggressive, and impressive musical ability. Coming in from all angles with hard-hitting tracks like Mercy Severity to the much calmer side of things with World so Cold. Even if you despised their debut, the extreme alterations that Mudvayne have gone through in their road to musical perfection have made them an entirely new and better experience. They have grown into who they are as people, that is visible in this truly amazing album. Tool fans, check this out, it's produced by the same dude. This is an absolute must-have album for all 'intellectual' metal fans.

When I first heard L.D. 50 I thought it was amazing and that mudvayne would probably never out do it. But with this album i think no album by anyone could could outdo this. It is a rip roaring album that shows the talent of the American mettalers.
Silenced the album opener is tremendous and by this time you can already feel a terrific album unleashing. I hadn't even heard the new single on this album before it came out, but i bought it solely on the 4 star rating kerrang! gave it. It deserves 5. Well done mudvayne for producing a superb album with the help of rage against the machine producer dave bottrill.
P.S The dvd is also terrific, very powerful.

I bought this on the back of an Amazon recommendation and WOW!!!!
Being a great fan of the Marilyn Manson/Slipknot/Mushroomhead music genre, I must say that this album MASSIVELY impressed me. The percussive guitar, avalanche drums and lyrics that leave an imprint on you mind.
Such songs as Not Falling, The Patient Mental, Mercy, Severity and World So Cold give this album classic status - because it is so well produced. I really do not like the term "Nu-Metal" as it implies that the new generation of Heavy/Thrash Metal bands are somewhat lacking; but talent either exists or does not - it is as simple as that and, to clarify, this album is a wonderful example of a new generation metal band making a real impact with brilliantly performed material, material that earns them the right to stand shoulder to shoulder with their (above named) contemporaries.
As an introduction to Mudvayne, if it can convince a music-snob like me, this is just the album to convince anyone that they are definitely worth listening to.

It has got to be the album which will firmly secure them as metal gold. Mudvayne have evolved as artists since The Beginning Of All Things To Come, and have maintained the energy and power of L.D.50. The first single "Not Falling" has received massive radio play on both sides of the Atlantic and is set to be a classic.
Chüd, Spüg, Grüüg and Rü-D show their transotion to aliens in the special ed DVD, which is well worth the extra cash - the audio bonus track Goodbye is outstanding.

Give it a shot, people! 18 Mar 2003
By Wheelchair Assassin - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I've always thought Mudvayne were a somewhat misunderstood and unfairly maligned band. Mainstreamers won't listen to them because they don't sound anything like Pearl Jam or the Dave Matthews band, and metalheads reject them for not sounding enough like Slayer or Morbid Angel (look them up). As somewhat of a musical extremist myself, I do take a certain amount of umbrage to people acting like Mudvayne are the heaviest or craziest band out there, because they're far from it. But of course, not being extreme doesn't necessarily mean something isn't good, just as being extreme doesn't make something good (it certainly helps, though!). I think "The End of All Things to Come," much like its predecessor "LD 50," has a lot to offer for any rock or metal fan who can keep an open mind.
There seems to be a lot of discussion as to how exactly to classify Mudvayne, so I might as well contribute my take. I wouldn't call this stuff metal, at least not in the same sense of the term as, say, Slayer or Iron Maiden. At the same time, I don't see how you could call it nu-metal, since it's nowhere near as simplistic as stuff like Korn or Disturbed. With its complex arrangements and ever-shifting time signatures, I'd say this is more like heavy math rock than anything else. I listen to a lot of progressive music (Rush, Yes, Dream Theater, etc.) in addition to extreme stuff, and while Mudvayne's work certainly isn't the heaviest or most progressive music I've ever heard, it does combine the two elements just enough to make for an interesting listen.
Despite what some may say, I find Mudvayne to be a pretty talented band, certainly moreso than most of the Seattle-lite and homiecore acts polluting the airwaves right now. Vocalist Chud isn't among my favorites, but he does bring some nice variety, often shifting effortlessly from smooth singing to cookie-monster growling. Guug is an excellent guitarist, who goes way beyond the detuned chugga-chugga riffing commonly associated with nu-metal. The real stars of this band, though, are the rhythm section of drummer Spud and bassist Ru-D. They create some extremely interesting rhythms that really elevate Mudvayne above the heap. Ru-D's winding, muscular basslines and Spud's complex and rhythmic drum beats would make "The End of All Things to Come" a worthwhile listen even if the rest of the band were inept.
Most importantly, "The End of All Things to Come" is full of diverse, intriguing songs. Mudvayne definitely rage a lot, but they can be just as effective when they turn the speed and volume down. The album opener "Silenced" is a great example of just what Mudvayne can do. It's a great hard-driving metallic track with some fierce growling from Kud, and the complexity of the guitar work puts virtually every nu-metal band that's ever existed to shame. The single "Not Falling" is way better than most of what's on the radio right now. It's pretty straightforward compared to some of their other stuff, but it's chock full of emotion, melody, and skillful playing. The chorus to this song, with its thumping bassline and precise drumming, gets my head banging every time. "Mercy Severity," another choice cut, starts out slow, but then steadily builds in intensity before exploding into a barrage of frenetic riffing and harsh shouting. These three songs are probably my favorites, but there really isn't anything too bad here. All throughout, Mudvayne prove themselves to be experts at balancing melody, aggression, and intricacy. Nu-metal? I think not.
So anyway, I really like this band, and I think just about anyone who gives this album a shot could enjoy it. It seems a lot of metal fans want to label Mudvayne as just another nu-metal band because it makes them easier to bash, but I try really hard to be more fairminded than that. Obviously not everyone is going to like this album, but you should try to listen to it for what it is, not what someone else says it is.
Mudvayne are a pretty tough band to categorize, but is that really a bad thing?

Another Powerful Heavy/Nu-Metal Album By Mudvayne! 26 Nov 2002
By M. Hart - Published on
Format: Audio CD
On the heals of their very successful previous album "L.D. 50" with its hit song "Dig", Mudvayne has produced an even more powerful heavy/nu-metal album with "The End of All Things to Come". Mudvayne's four members; calling themselves Chüd (vocals), Güüd (guitars & vocals), Spüg (percussion) Rü-d (bass); changed their names from the ones used on the "L.D. 50" album to emphasize their expanded dynamic range and their new alien look for this album. "The End of All Things to Come" clearly illustrates Mudvayne's maturity and improved musicianship over their previous two albums. My ratings for each of the songs (including tracks on the Limited Edition DVD) are below:
1. "Silenced" 5/5. Heavy & aggressive guitar/percussion with screaming vocals all the way. One of the heaviest songs on the album.
2. "Trapped in the Wake of a Dream" 5/5. Eclectic mix of screaming/melodic vocals backed with aggressive to heavy guitar/percussion; overall a very heavy song.
3. "Not Falling" 5+/5. Very reminiscent to the previous album, "L.D. 50" with its fast percussion & rhythmic guitars mixed with mostly-melodic/screaming vocals.
4. "(Per) Version of Truth" 4/5. Slower song with more melodic vocals, but giving way to more aggressive choruses.
5. "Mercy, Severity" 5/5. A fast & aggressive guitar/percussion beginning giving way to soft & melodic vocals, but quickly going back to very aggressive choruses.
6. "World So Cold" 5+/5. One of the best songs on the album, this song begins as a percussionless, melodic ballad but transforms cleanly into a more aggressive percussion-driven song with a mix of aggressive/melodic vocals & guitar. The beginning ballad is repeated in the song, but with percussion. Very well done guys!
7. "The Patient Mental" 4/5. An eclectic mix of aggressive/soft guitar and screaming/singing vocals.
8. "Skrying" 4/5. Aggressive, pounding guitar with screaming vocals giving way to a soft melodic center; but erupting back into a more aggressive ending.
9. "Solve Et Corgula" 4/5. Powerful guitar & percussion with mix of emotional screaming/singing vocals.
10. "Shadow of a Man" 5+/5. Aggressive guitar/percussion with mix of screams/singing vocals at a slower speed, then speed picks up with more rhythmic (but powerful) section. This song changes speeds several times. Very well done!
11. "12:99:24:99" N/A. Silent track, probably the website data-key.
12. "The End of All Things to Come" 4.5/5. Fast & heavy guitar/percussion with screams, much more heavy metal than nu-metal sound.
13. "A Key to Nothing" 5/5. Powerful, heavy vocals accompanied by aggressive rhythmic guitar.
Limited Edition Album Bonus DVD:
1. "In the Studio" 4/5. Video of the band in the recording studio working on "Not Falling".
2. "Photo Shoot" 5/5. Video of the band having busts of their head made and showing them receiving their full latex appliances & make-up for their new alien look.
3. "Downtime" 4/5. Video of the quartet riding bicycles & dirt bikes.
4. "The Interview" 5/5. +++ Video of Spüg & Rü-d having breakfast & discussing the recording & creation of this new album.
5. "Goodbye" 5+/5. Previously unreleased song. A tauntingly dark, nearly percussionless & very melodic ballad that begins with the tin-sounds of a toy piano similar to a celesta, but much more tinny.
6. "On the Move" 5+/5. Previously unreleased song. Fast & aggressive guitar/percussion with very aggressive vocals leading to more melodic choruses. This song is also reminiscent of the previous album "L.D. 50" and includes some speed changes.
By and large, Mudvayne is a very talented group whose matured sound will probably continue to only get better with each new album. I highly recommend this limited edition album to any heavy/nu-metal music fan over the regular album since it includes the two previously unreleased songs on the DVD that further illustrate Mudvayne's musicianship & dynamic range. Overall, I give this album 5 out of 5 stars!

Intelligent, Talented Musicians; More To Them Than Image 7 Aug 2003
By Samhot - Published on
Format: Audio CD
First off, I have to mention that my tastes in music are pretty varied, but my favorite music leans toward the ambitious, grand, whimsical, ethereal, refined/elegant, complex, original, intelligent, powerful, multi-faceted and in many cases, cerebral. Thus, I find one (to a maximum degree) or more of these qualities exemplified in progressive/psychedelic rock (mainly of the 60s and 70s), and classical music, which are my top preferences in music. As far as metal is concerned, I was never a die-hard fan, and still am not to this day, though my strongest interest in it was a decade ago, and has been nearly nonexistent since, as I found it to become tasteless, predictable and unoriginal.

However, on the discovery of some recent bands who seem to be pushing the envelope of metal (e.g. Meshuggah), I'm a bit more hopeful on the progress of "the hard stuff." Meshuggah plays "math-metal," a style which incorporates rhythmically complex features into metal. When I read that Mudvayne were also "mathematical" in their rhythms, I had to check these guys out -- and I am SO glad that I did. These guys have a LARGE amount of versatility and talent - so much so, that I'm not sure my feelings about the whole thing can be accurately expressed in words. The structures are indeed complex and mathematical, but the band does not shy away from melody and catchy heavy rock. It's a nice balance between accessibility and complexity (not unlike Permanent Waves-era Rush.) The lyrics are intelligent, which are at times serious, thought-provoking, and at other times humorous and/or sarcastic. There's even some metaphysical topics - like the lyrics to each song matching up with the psychological profile for each of the 12 astrological signs of the zodiac (if you're familiar with astrology, you'll EASILY be able to spot the correlations between each song and respective, highlighted sign.)

These guys are under the "nu-metal" label, but that's just a weak cop out from going into deeper analysis of the band's attributes, which may be difficult to do. Unfortunately, that's pretty much how the majority of "professional" critics are towards artists' contributions -- looking for the easiest comparative link, and failing to give artists' works fair, in-depth reviews (for lack of intelligence and laziness), and it's been that way for years and years. What's more sad is that many listeners follow these critical techniques, and rarely form solid opinions of their own.

Having said all of that, I'm not sure who to compare this band to, as they don't outright sound like anyone to me. The closest thing I can compare them to is Tool, but these guys seem a bit more loose, and groove-oriented in approach, but no less intelligent and intricate. And as far as the "nu-metal" label, it certainly does have that modern alternative metal sound, which unfortunately seems to overshadow the deeper (and more important) elements of their music, as well as scaring off potential fans. However, on the whole, I find it grossly unfair and inaccurate, as these guys possess more complexity, depth, versatility and originality than most artists found in popular music today. I call them something like progressive alternative metal (if it's all that important.)

Look deeper - there is MUCH more to Mudvayne than meets the surface. Beyond the campy image, the musicians are incredibly talented - particularly Chud, who is a hyper-versatile vocalist -- almost schizophrenically so. One minute he's doing these goofy growls, and the next, he showcases vocal characteristics of the most sincere balladeer. The rhythm section is tight, and drummer Spug plays some pretty complex rhythms on the kit, but not without displaying tasty grooves here and there. "Silenced" is an excellent way to open up the album, as a fast-paced, blistering rocker, while "Trapped In The Wake of A Dream" showcases some pretty odd rhythms (like 11/8 and 17/8, I think.) "Not Falling" is just excellent, as it balances the heavier moments, with mysteriously melodic vocals and soundscapes - not to mention a few curveballs in rhythm. "A World So Cold" is possibly my favorite track on here. Chud gets to show off his commanding, heartfelt, brooding vocals (which actually recall Greg Lake of ELP -- for me anyway), backed by the melancholy, atmospheric guitar arpeggios, which give way to harder-edged moments. There's also a section (I think the bridge) where Chud does this mesmerizing roadrunner-speed vocal technique, intermingled with growls, which are unbelievable -- a testament to his (and the band's) talent, while "The Patient Mental" seems to exhibit what is known as "revolving polymeter" (Meshuggah makes extensive use of this technique.)

Elsewhere, "Skrying" begins with what sounds like a 11/4 (4+4+3) rhythm, before turning into one of the strangest, most menacing choruses I've ever heard. The title track is probably the fastest on here. The lyrics are quite biting and sinister, but thought-provoking, which take on a nihilistic view of world politics. Even more powerful, they crack me up hysterically (at least in the way Chud delivers his vocal), and the topic is based on something that probably shouldn't be laughed at -- or should it? And "A Key To Nothing" is a melodic, heavy ballad to close out the album, in which Chud showcases his passionate vocal delivery.

Intelligence, melody, complexity, versatility, accessibility -- it's a 10. Mudvayne seem to possess all of the ingredients (and then some) which blend together nicely to create quality music. For those who are purist and label-conscious - try to open your mind, and look past the "nu-metal" aspects of this music. Only then will you be able to spot the genius that's embedded within Mudvayne's music.

MuDvAyNe does it again! 25 Dec 2002
By Jeffrey Kelley - Published on
Format: Audio CD
MuDvAyNe's sophomore album is as good, if not better than their first release, "L.D. 50". Starting from the first track, "Silenced", Chüd, Rü-D, Spüg, and Güüg deliver high-energy offerings. Here's a track-by-track breakdown:
1. "Silenced"
This is one of the best songs on the CD, and delivers a clear message on censorship that, in concert, sees hundreds of fans waving their middle fingers in the air, too.
2. "Trapped in the Wake of a Dream"
Slower than "Silenced", this song attacks with fierce guitar riffs and dark, melodic lyrics.
3. "Not Falling"
My favorite song on this album, "Not Falling" is also the album's first single. Debuting MuDvAyNe's new 'alien' look, this song also debuts their new sound, with an anthem that keeps rocking after it's over.
4. "(Per)Version of a Truth"
This track, while slower than the previous ones, further show's just how varied Chüd's vocals can be. One minute he's singing a high, melodic chorus, and the next he's screaming. Fortunately, it fits together perfectly, and the chorus gets stuck in your head like peanut butter to your mouth.
5. "Mercy Severity"
Another hard-hitting introduction leads into one of the album's better songs. "I can take you if you leave it all behind..."
6. "World So Cold"
This song, in my opinion, is the best song MuDvAyNe has ever composed. The introduction literally gives me chills down my spine every time I hear it, and the faster rapping is another showcase of just how talented this band is.
7. "The Patient Mental"
Although it's hard to follow "World So Cold" on any album, "The Patient Mental" manages to do just that in its own fashion.
8. "Skrying"
Reminiscent of "L.D. 50", this track has a hook like a boxer, and won't let go until it's infected your mind, causing you to sing along helplessly. Be careful with it.
9. "Solve et Coagula"
Probably the album's weak link, "Solve et Coagula" isn't a bad song per se, but rather it's not great when compared to the album's other offerings.
10. "Shadow of a Man"
Along with "World So Cold", this song shines as one of the album's best. "Do you reflect me or do I reflect you? Are you inside of another world? I wanna break through..."
11. "12:97:24:09"
12. "The End of All Things to Come"
As a title track should do, "The End of All Things to Come" blends the styles found on the album into an amagalm of fast, addictive music.
13. "A Key To Nothing"
A good way to sum up the album, "A Key to Nothing" is the icing on the cake for one of the best albums I've listened to in a long time.

Mud - men - metallers are back.... 29 May 2003
By A X - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is perfect. No song, no album, no artist is better than Mudvayne's END OF ALL THINGS TO COME. This is twice as different as LD.50...
...and twice as good. If you're into Mudvayne or really heavy metal, I AM SURE YOU WILL LOOOOOOOOVE THIS!!...Chud's vocals and lyrics are more intellectual and more sensible than it's prequel, Guug's guitaring is awsome, Ru-d's bass is alot btter than LD.50, and Spug's drumming is more crazy and blinding.I have put thought into this and brung you my own review of the songs:
SILENCED - 9/10 - Incredible start to the album. Crazy and weird - just what I'd expect.
TRAPED IN THE WAKE OF A DREAM - 10/10 - Brilliant lyrics, awsome chorus and the solo is at least three different things. Well done!
NOT FALLING - 10/10 - Brilliant single. Explosive and thoughtful.Chorus is amazing.
(PER)VERSION OF A TRUTH - 9/10 - Nice chorus and overall brilliant.
MERCY, SEVERITY - 10/10 - brilliant verse guitar and exellent solo with an angry chorus. Good.
WORLD SO COLD - 10/10 - ballad at start, cool aggressive chorus, strange solo but blinding song.
THE PATIENT MENTAL - 8/10 - Overall pretty good song with a decent chorus.
SKRYING - 9/10 - Wonderful song. Different from all the rest, brill lyrics, Nice chorus.
SOLVE ET COAGULA - 9/10 - Explosive and crazy. Strange name.
SHADOW OF A MAN - 20/10 - Best song in the world. Greatest chorus I have ever heard. Verses are cool, and solo is fascinating. Completely covered my brain. The best reason to buy the album.
12:97:24:99 - N/A - 11 seconds of nothing. I would never thought of that.
THE END OF ALL THINGS TO COME - 10/10 - fastest in the album. Strong, offensive lyrics, guitar bit too simple for GUUG.
A KEY TO NOTHING - 9/10 - Amazing finish to the best album to date. Could be a little more heavy. Well done!
Can you see the ratings I gave for each song? This is the best metal album up to date. LD.50 was good, but I've forgotten all about it. Buy it. I did, and it was the best decision I've ever made.
