Image of Mushroomhead


Known for its theatrical live show and the black masks that most of its members wear on-stage, Mushroomhead is one of the more unique and adventurous alternative metal outfits that emerged in the 1990s. And the Cleveland band's music is as interesting as its image; Mushroomhead's forceful yet melodic alterna-metal incorporates elements of hip-hop, punk, and goth rock as well as ...

Product Description

February 14th, 2014 - Mushroomhead, the influential industrial metal band from Cleveland, OH, will release its eighth studio album The Righteous & The Butterfly May 13th via Megaforce Records. Recorded in Cleveland, the band self produced the record with longtime co-producer Bill Korecky. The CD consists of 14 tracks, ranging from songs about survival and balance (Devils Be Damned, Qwerty, Son Of 7) to emotionally charged anthems (For Your Pleasure, Worlds Collide) to a riff heavy rendition of Adeles #1 hit Rumor Has It. Mushroomhead is comprised of drummers Skinny, Robert Diablo and Stitch, Vocalists J Mann, Jeffery Nothing & Waylon, guitarist Church, Keyboardist Schmotz, and bassist Dr. F. The albums title The Righteous & The Butterfly is a dedication to original guitarist, J.J. Righteous and the bands former photographer (and drummer Steve Skinny Feltons wife) Vanessa Solowiow who both passed away too soon. J.J. was a key member of our band says Skinny. He played on the first three records and Vanessa was our photographer and the mother of my children. They were both huge pieces of Mushroomhead and this record is dedicated to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic return to form 18 Jun 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Having been underwhelmed by both 'Saviour Sorrow' and 'Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children' (both have moments of excellence, but were a little bit too hit and miss, in my opinion) I bought this album with a slight sense of hesitation. However, even on the first listen, I knew that this was Mushroomhead back to their best, and, having now listened to pretty much only this album for the past week, I can confirm that. This is right up there with 'XIII', which, until this release, had been my favourite Mushroomhead album (though 'XX' wasn't far behind). In fact, I'd say, right now, that 'The Righteous and the Butterfly' has the edge over 'XIII'. The return of J Mann is definitely welcome. Stand out tracks, personally, are opener 'Our Apologies' , 'Portraits of the Poor' and 'We are the Truth', but, as with 'XIII', there really isn't a bad song on this album at all. Highly recommended.

A variety of styles shine through, but a great new outing by Mushroomhead. Songs like; Childlike and Son Of 7 really make you want to listen. The majority of the album follows suit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Notch Effort 14 May 2014
By James Frail - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a Mushroomhead fan for a very long time. This latest offering from the guys in Filthy Hands does not disappoint. Overall, the sound is very reminiscent of the first three albums. New members Church and Dr. F bring a slightly new flavor, but their learning of the back catalog is apparent in the styling on guitar and bass. Like many 'shroomheads, my favorite album is XIII, but there's a little of everything on this album. Tracks "Graveyard Du Jour" and "Out Of My Mind" are very similar to XIII. "All Apologies" is a great opener, though not as strong as Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children's "Come On." On the flipside, while BSfUC has a couple of standout tracks with a chunk of studio filler, this whole album is pretty solid. As a collection of tracks, this is probably only second to XIII, but I don't see any individual tracks here that top some of the previous offerings, like "12 Hundred," "Come On," or my personal Favorite, "43."

The Adele cover Rumor Has It was an odd choice, but they managed to make it fit. Like covers of Pink Floyd's Empty Spaces and Seal's Crazy, Mushroomhead gave it a different twist, while remaining true to the original. Sticth's fingerprints are all over this tack, with lots of scratches, sirens, and whistles in the background. Vocals? If you like Jeffery Nothing, Waylon, or J.Mann, you'll be happy. All three feature prominently on this album. Skinny's drums are solid, as always. The only weak point for me was the additional percussion. I hoped for more from Roberto Diablo. Live performance highlights are always the water drums. There just wasn't anything that I felt had the same power as "43," 12 Hundred," or "Come On." I just don't see anything on this album that I expect to blow my mind or eardrums in that way.

Gems in my opinion, include "Qwerty," "Our Apologies," "We are the Truth," "Son of 7," and "Childlike." Anyone who loves the smoother keyboards that Shmotz does, will like "Childlike."

Still, if you're a Mushroomhead fan, you cannot miss this album. If not top 2, it's unquestionably in the top 3 of the 7 studio albums.

Edit: After listening through a few more times, this is definitely their 2nd best album, and I'm bordering on heresy here: maybe even better than XIII. Many reviews are down on other albums, but that's because most fans have XX as their first exposure, and that was a compilation of the best tracks from Mushroomhead, Superbuick, and M3. Taken individually, none of those albums can compare to XIII, either. I like this more with each listening.

Also, read the fine print on the CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Album! Excellent return to form!! 16 July 2014
By Shaun Rucker - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was unaware that J-Mann had returned to the band before listening to this album, but right off the bat I knew he was there. I think I go against a lot of fans who have been with Mushroomhead for a long time in saying that I LOVE what Waylon brings to the band; his vocal range is just something that J-Mann and Nothing don't have and I really enjoy his screaming/growling vocals as well. That said, having J back is also a huge addition, and just seems like he never left.

I'll also go against the grain and say Savior Sorrow WAS my favorite Mushroomhead album, but after feeling a little let down by Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children, this one is nearly perfect! It opens incredibly strong with Our Apologies, which prominently features all three vocalists. I like the comment by another viewer that Stitch has his fingerprints all over this one and agree wholeheartedly.

I can't think of another song as just plain different as QWERTY in recent memory. I cannot listen to this song enough, it is so perfectly Mushroomhead. Devils Be Damned is another favorite, along with For Your Pleasure.

Really the whole album is great, I don't think there's any filler on this one!
5.0 out of 5 stars Todays Mushroomhead is even better than the Mushroomhead of yesteryear. 1 Sep 2014
By Peter Faden - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This album is sort of an exercise in displaying a lot of influences while still maintaining the Mushroomhead identity. You can hear some Faith No More, some Slayer, and so on, but this is Mushroomhead though and through. However, there has also been an evolution of the band which incorporates more straight ahead rock and less metal.
Personally, I'd say this is by far my favorite Mushroomhead album yet. I cant stop listening to it. Just so good and so diverse that it deserves peoples attention.
5.0 out of 5 stars A good way to start listening MRH 30 July 2014

This 2014 is a very productive one in music. This albums sends us to another phase in Mushroomhead's history. We have 3 lead singers developing one of the most face off albums ever. Track to track they put anger or depress with power. Just great, if you are a fan from MRH get it now, if you are not a fan of MRH, also get it. This is rock and you will love it.
