Yesterday (April 19th), Mudvayne had nu-metal true believers in a frenzy with the news that they will be reuniting to play U.S. festivals this fall. The shape-shifting alt-metal group — known for their meme-immortalized single "Dig" and their penchant for elaborate makeup and bizarre pseudonyms, not to mention their unique take on heavy music — have been on hiatus for 12 long years. In that time, the band members — vocalist Chad Gray, guitarist Greg Tribbett, bassist Ryan Martinie and drummer Matthew McDonough — focused on various other projects, including Hellyeah, Audiotopsy and Soften the Glare.
Among those endeavors, one of the most notable took place in 2012, when Korn bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu sat out the band's shows in Europe for a month so that he could be home for the birth of his child. Who filled in? None other than Mr. Br Br Deng himself: Martinie. Flashback to this clash of the nu-metal titans above via Korn's official 11-minute mini-doc on the experience.
