Mutoid Man Videos
Nick, Ben, and Steve have a month-long jaunt planned.
Mutoid Man are touring in support of Bleeder.
Support comes from Sweet Cobra, Wild Throne, Indian Handcrafts and more, with additional stops scheduled at Wrecking Ball (Atlanta) and the Gwar-B-Que (Richmond).
Bleeder is one of our favorite records of 2015.
Here's why you need to see the band.
• Mutoid Man boasts an impressive lineup of Steve Brodsky (Cave In) on guitar and vocals, Ben Koller (Converge, All Pigs Must Die) on drums and Nick Cageao on bass, and has quickly established itself as one of the dominant new power trios in the world of heavy music. The band was initially meant to be an exercise in flexing the creative chops outside of the members' other projects, but Mutoid Man kept going.
• Brodsky distills the melodicism and metallurgy of Cave In into a concentrated elixir of frantic fretboard work, big riffs and undeniable vocal hooks. Koller continues to batter his drums with unmatched force and dexterity. With the recruitment of bassist Nick Cageao and his driving low-end growl, Mutoid Man keep things heavier than granite sans any hipster pretense.
• They are noisy without being unlistenable.
