Mushroomhead Xmas

When: Sat., Dec. 26, 7 p.m. 2015

When the local metal act Mushroomhead first formed in 1993, few critics imagined the group would still be going at it years later. And yet the masked band is now more popular than ever. Its latest album, 2014's The Righteous and the Butterfly, embraces a wide range of musical styles, including hip-hop, electronica and hard rock. Recorded at the band's studio in North Royalton and mixed by long-time collaborator Bill Korecky, the disc is arguably the band's most polished effort to date. Expect to hear songs from it as well as from the band's back catalogue at tonight's annual Christmas show. (Niesel)
