Their debut proper still sounds fantastic, and their third has a couple of good tracks in amongst the shitty sounding commercial metal.
Also a contender for best band name ever?
played at the release show for that dvd at the underworld, there were five people there. Ten Masked Men headlined and were less than hilarious.
they were truly frighteningly insane live, and the album was a bit of an eye opener too. however within a year or two the stage show had become routine and the albums started getting stale
The first few times i saw them (oh yes there were a few) they were utterly captivating and actually disgusting but once you've rolled in someone else's puke there's only so much you can do to keep being 'extreme'.
The self titled album (not technically their first) ahs some great stuff, the first 6 or 7 songs on Iowa are powerful and Vol 3, although a bit more commerical certainly has depth in scope.
So yes, very under-rated and forever lumped in with "nu metal" shite when quite clearly they are a cut above.
was impressive. i spose it was more commercial but a couple of tracks were really atmosperic and textured
When their second album got to number one? they neat the strokes i believe.
