Which band do you think is the best of these three? If you vote, try to explain your answer.

I like Mudvayne the best, they have a great sound and their bass quitarist is pretty good. Their one of the few metal bands that has a more distuginshed and recongizable bass guitar sound to them.

Not a fan of either; though I respect Corey Taylor and James Root as musicians. So I'll go with Slipknot.

Mushroomhead had the gimmick first, but I definitely think Slipknot are the better band all round.

I prefer old Mushroomhead--their "XX" album. I just find them a lot more interesting than Slipknot. They have more complex song structures, a generally more complex sound, and more going on than just "ARRRRGH I HATE EVERYTHING AND EVERYTHING HATES ME!" XD I know that's a gross oversimplification, but Mushroomhead isn't as monotonous, I mean. They have more variety...I can generally respect them more in terms of real creativity. And yeah, I'd say that even if they came after Slipknot. I'm not one of those people who thinks Slipknot ripped Mushroomhead off. I just mean that Mushroomhead's more interesting and experimental to my ears, whereas Slipknot isn't as daring and thus are more popular.

That said, I'm also a fan of Slipknot's self-titled album. It's just fun and relentless and intense and probably more emotionally effective than Mushroomhead.

In both cases I find their second studio albums to be fairly mixed bags, and their third studio albums to both be mostly bad with only a few good songs--in Slipknot's case, "The Virus of Life" is great but that's about it.

As for Mudvayne, I just never got into them, partly because I never heard any songs by them that had synth. I don't like pure intense metal, I like it to be combined with other elements.

See, I disagree, I think that Slipknot's third album is their best, and it's that which clinched it for me. It shows a lot more variety than their previous work and proves they're a more multi-faceted band than the hype would suggest. Mushroomhead are a great band, without doubt, though.

I'm not trying to be "that guy" but I like Mr. Bungle the most. They also had a similar gimmick at least as early as 1990.

Their first album changed my life.

Haha, thanks!

I do like some Slipknot and Mudvayne, too. I've never heard Mushroomhead though.

Mushroomhead, just because they're hometown favorites and they were here forever before they blew up (if they ever really did).

I've never heard Mushroomhead or Mudvayne.

However, I've heard Slipknot. I'm not going to vote though because my view is biased.

And who was it that claimed they were death metal before you mentioned it?
