METAL | Mushroomhead


Short answer: Cleveland's Mushroomhead is a metal band. But on upon closer inspection, the band is a culmination of all the cool aspects of hip-hop, industrial, and prog-rock all ensconced in bio-mechanical gore. The stage show is gloriously gory, awesome with the masked band cavorting around a set that resembles something out of Saw. Mushroomhead is menacing, doom-laden fun, and makes Gwar (whom I love) look like the Three Stooges.

Mushroomhead with guests Erimha, Unsaid Fate, and Thira performs Friday, January 9, at Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut Street. 6:30 p.m. $22-$25.;
