Mutoid Man is: Steve Brodsky – vocals, guitar Ben Koller – drums Nick Cageao - bass

There was a buzz about Mutoid Man before they ever even took the stage. Like many ‘members-of’ projects, there was an automatic interest in what heady metal luminaries Steve Brodsky (Cave In) and Ben Koller (Converge, All Pigs Must Die) were working on in their tiny Brooklyn practice space. Mutoid Man offers up the best of Brodsky and Koller’s respective worlds. With the recruitment of bassist Nick Cageao and his driving low-end growl, Mutoid Man quickly established themselves as one of the dominant new power trios in the world of heavy music.
While their first EP, Helium Head, wasn’t a severe sonic departure from its makers’ previous endeavors, it still offered up a kind of frenzied excitement and ecstatic energy that was new territory for its members. Their debut full-length Bleeder, recorded by Kurt Ballou at God City Studios, built upon the triumphant barrage of Helium Head with bigger production, increased ferocity, and the bolstered confidence from writing as a three-piece unit, garnering worldwide critical acclaim and popularity from fans of Koller and Brodsky’s other projects as well as completely new devotees.
Since signing to Sargent House in 2014, Mutoid Man has had headlining tours in North America and Europe, as well as playing support to bands such as Dillinger Escape Plan, Baroness, and Kvelertak. They’ve become a favorite on the festival circuit, playing everything from Fun Fun Fun Fest, Wrecking Ball, and Hopscotch to Roskilde, Pukkelpop, and ArcTanGent. With a blistering live show and beloved recorded material, Mutoid Man have already surpassed the expectations set by their lineage and only have higher to climb.
Guitar-oriented ambient project founded by Isis (6) guitarist Mike Gallagher. MGR stands for "Mustard Gas and Roses."
