Monster Mash


A round-up of some of today's biggest 'Monster Bands'. I mean, just in case you were wondering...

MONSTER MASHERS

By DANICA LO

December 14, 2006 -- LORDI

Sound: Balls-out rock straight from the '80s

Looks: They're from hell

Shtick: Lots of pyro, and Mr. Lordi wears animatronic wings.

MUSHROOMHEAD

Sound: Melodic industrial metal

Looks like: Dead alien dolls with fangs

Shtick: Most critically acclaimed, tend not to decapitate anyone.

SLIPKNOT

Sound: Platinum-selling heavy rap-metal

Looks like: Horror-movie rejects

Shtick: They call their fans maggots.

INSANE CLOWN POSSE

Sound: Rap-metal rage

Looks like: Psycho carnies

Shtick: High-drama live shows featuring chain saws and free-flying soda.
