Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something devastatingly brutal might best describe the new self-titled Mudvayne release.

While Mudvayne lacks the commercial luster of last yearís The New Game and 2005ís Lost and Found, the strength of this album lies in its raw, stabbing sound and realness.

The gashing opener, "Beautiful and Strange", is fast, furious, no-frills musicianship; driven hard by drummer Matt McDonough.

The insidious "Scream with Me" deeply sets a hook with its infectious melody as Chad Gray sings a tale of isolation and dark despair.

This album, as any fan would come to expect, is loaded with Grayís mad-minded, cobalt-fellating, poetic musings.

"Heard it all Before" is a mother fuck of a metal song, one respectfully paying homage to Pantera with Greg Tribbett displaying the kind of guitar work that would surely make Dime proud.

The scathing, apocalyptically grim "I Canít Wait" is the epitome of Mudvayne; crushing rhythms you can bash your step-dadís brains in to, complete with three blood-curdling screams of lunacy from Gray.

"Dead Inside" is a mellow, but downcast acoustic dirge--a finale that could evoke thoughts of suicide, homicide, or even deicide in the minds of some. Most, hopefully, will want to give this great album another listen.
