The future of Mudvayne currently remains unknown. In 2011, the band went on an indefinite hiatus which continues to this day. The members have made indications that they will return someday, but exactly when was not made clear. This is partially due to Chad Gray's involvement with Hellyeah, though statements from Gray have made it apparent that serious personality conflicts are the main reason why nothing has happened in a while.

Hailing from Peoria, Illinois, [[HeavyMetal metal]] band Mudvayne was formed in 1996, and is probably the only [[Music/HeavyMetal Metal]] band to cite Creator/StanleyKubrick as an influence. Originally solely an AlternativeMetal band, a lot had changed by the time they got to their debut, ''L.D. 50''. The band members dipped into their ''extremely'' technical backgrounds to combine elements of ProgressiveRock, DeathMetal, ThrashMetal, SpeedMetal and HardcorePunk into something they called "math metal", which owed to the fact that the composition involved riffs chosen via numbers symbolism directly related to the song's subject matter (I.E., "Nothing To Gein", about SerialKiller Ed Gein, uses a riff which alternates in bars of four and five, because nine is a lunar number and Gein's activities were usually performed at night).[[note]][=McDonough=] later rejected the "math metal" label, saying that it was a joke he cracked in an interview that was taken seriously and that he doesn't think that Mudvayne was a pioneer of anything.[[/note]]
