I am personal excited about this album, I have heard two single and they are great.
Mudvayne was produced by Daves Fortman's right-hand man Jeremy Parker and is "a little more retro for MUDVAYNE" from a songwriting point of view, according to Vocalist Chad Gray. "We've been kind of making this natural progression, and I think for this one, we just sort of naturally regressed," he told Noisecreep. "We took the smarter songwriting guys that we've become and mixed it with the not-smart songwriting guys that we were." The album is completely done and was recorded during Summer 2008 in El Paso, Texas. However on October 7, 2009 Mudvayne posted a bulletin on Myspace saying that they will be releasing a self-titled album on December 22, 2009 followed by a tour. They also have two new songs called "Beautiful and Strange" and "Heard it All Before" on their official Myspace page."Mudvayne" has been described by drummer Matt McDonough as "the best" CD "the band has recorded since our second album,'The End Of All Things to Come'." The effort will be released in three different formats — a standard jewel case edition, a deluxe version packaged with a black light and a super deluxe edition that features a larger black light, a special edition blacklight-reactive poster and more.
The artwork for the CD will be printed entirely in blacklight-reactive ink, making it only visible under a black light (a source of light whose wavelengths are primarily in the ultraviolet)
