Marching to the beat of their own razor-sharp drum for decades, Mudvayne’s fearless concoction of death metal, jazz, progressive rock, and world music is as infamous as their penchant for face paint and ferocious live shows. A band who are widely, if not unofficially, credited with sparking math metal, Mudvayne’s ongoing legacy spans more than six million albums sold worldwide, nabbing the first ever MTV2 award, and even a feature on The Sopranos (courtesy of AJ “Can I Go To The Mudvayne Concert Or Not?” Soprano).

Hailing from Illinois, Mudvayne have withstood everything since officially declaring themselves to the world via their 2000 debut album L.D. 50, from an ever-changing industry around them to a hiatus that spanned just over a decade, officially returning to the fray in 2021. With their head-turning technicality, bombastic aesthetics, and permeating brute strength, no one can or ever will sound quite like Mudvayne, and they are an absolute must to tick off your live bucket list if you haven’t already.

A band equally versed in traversing a hiatus or two and also defining a genre, Coal Chamber to this day remain one of the most prolific forces in the origins of nu metal. Erupting out of L.A. in the 90s, Coal Chamber’s delectable darkness bridged heavy metal with stabbing, gothy, and swampy industrial flavours. A haven for fans of down-tuning, chugs, wall-of-sound textures, and hip hop elements hurled into a sonic blender, Coal Chamber’s 1997 self-titled debut has since landed on multiple best album lists thanks largely to its poker-faced bounce, grooves, and rap metal outbursts.

Also an ongoing festival favourite over the years, Coal Chamber’s subsequent releases Chamber Music (1999), Dark Days (2002) and Rivals (2015) continuously flexed the band’s progression while still staying close to their nu metal roots. And while two disbandments and reunions may have paused the band’s journey along the way, fans have certainly never lost their love for the colourful quartet, nor have Coal Chamber lost their insatiable live chops, as North America fans can attest from their recent run alongside Mudvayne and GWAR.


A tour that will make metal fans weak at the knees, you definitely won’t want to miss Mudvayne and Coal Chamber bringing the brutality down under next February. Playing some of the country’s favourite venues, including Brisbane’s Fortitude Music Hall, Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion, Melbourne’s Festival Hall, Adelaide’s Hindley Street Music Hall and Perth’s Metro City, prepare for total and utter sonic assault that’ll tickle your nostalgia and rattle your bones.
