On May 13th, Cleveland, OH industrial metal band Mushroomhead will be releasing their 7th studio album The Righteous & The Butterfly. And in anticipation of this upcoming release, we’ve got not one, not two, but NINE Top 5 lists, one from each member of the band! Starting today, each day will see a different Top 5 list from each of the members of the band.

Today we kick the series off with drummer/percussionist Skinny as he selects his Top 5 Takashi Miike Films!

My friend David “House” Greathouse, mask creator extraordinaire, was the first to show me Takashi’s work. “He’s a twisted fuck,” House said to me. So I bought a copy of ‘Audition’ and House was correct! Check it out!

Head below for Skinny’s list!

Audition

A widower takes an offer to screen girls at a special audition, arranged for him by a friend to find him a new wife. The one he fancies is not who she appears to be after all.

    Why do we care what a member of a shitty, talentless metal band thinks about horror movies? Jesus Christ. This dude’s mask is the lamest thing I’ve ever seen.

    • Quentin Avery Curran

      Because he’s earned recognition from his talent. What popular band are you from, you dumb cunt?

      • Caitlyn Gessing-Putz

        He has? Never heard of him.

        I may be a dumb cunt, but I certainly don’t wear a dumb cunt mask like this toolbox.

          How would you know he’s talentless if you’ve never heard of him?

          And since when is someone like this embarrassing to the horror genre, do you know ANY metal band that’s related to horror and ISN’T embarrassing? Rob zombie, slipknot, murderdolls, mudvayne… if someone from cannibal corpse, bloodbath, or aborted made a list of movies would it be any more relevant because they play more technical music?

          Personally I’d be more worried about how i present myself as a horror fan than how the “talentless nobody” says on the subject. You can’t control the stupid shit he does but you can do that for yourself, at least…

          Not trying to start an argument, but the comment and point your making come off as incredibly childish and ignorant. Trying to point it out politely ;)

          • Caitlyn Gessing-Putz

            I don’t know any metal band that isn’t embarrassing, which is why I’m saying this shit doesn’t belong on a horror movie website.

            And I listened the the linked song. Not good. Not music.
            :) :)

          • no

            “Not good” is legit. “Not music” is an incorrect statement. Static noise is music, the sounds of nature are music, fucking silence is music. The reason why it’s on a horror music website is because he’s talking about horror movies. Nothing to do what kind of music he plays or whether or not you consider it music.

          • Caitlyn Gessing-Putz

            music (n): vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) combined in such a way as to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.

            nice try, bro. :(

          • Quentin Avery Curran

            Don’t act like a professional when you don’t know obviously don’t know shit, and have to google the definition of music. Beauty is a stretched term, because everyone has a different perspective on it. Harmony can be as simple as time signature, it doesn’t mean that synchronized sound has to come from everything. The harmony of the song, the beat, and the backgrounds can very well be different. Sometimes songs will leaving you puzzled, you don’t need to feel good or bad by the end of a song. All music, whether you like it or not, is art in its own right.

            Furthermore, how is Skinny and the rest of the band a “toolbox”? They actually use these masks as well as other equipment for a theatrical sense. Have you ever been to a concert? It’s pretty fucking boring seeing different bands doing the same thing, which would be standing in place and doing nothing while performing. It’s called having a stage presence.

            You seem to have a Napoleon complex, because you’re a nobody complaining on an article you can simply ignore. Let me give you a scenario: You’re walking on a sidewalk, and you see a pile of shit. Instead of avoiding the pile of shit, you start rolling around in it while complaining about how bad the experience is.

            That is how dumb you look, now please get off of the internet. We’re retorting back toward your idiotic comments, because you’re on a page with people that support this band.

          • SYN Karnage

            Nice definition, now if you understand what you just posted, than yeah, any form of sound is music, a rock bashing off a surface, two sticks hitting together, or the sound of a car could even be considered an instrument, everything you do in life is an expression.. still not getting the point you’re trying to make here… Its a guy talking about horror on a horror site. Not sure what you’re problem is…

          • Garbageface

            Okay, yeah. You are a dumb cunt.

      • Caitlyn Gessing-Putz

        He has? Never heard of him.

        I may be a dumb cunt, but I certainly don’t wear a dumb cunt mask like this toolbox.

      • Garbageface

        Yeah, because popularity is really a factor in whether or not music is good, you dumb cunt.

        • Quentin Avery Curran

          Are you kidding me? I’m saying popularity is earned through good music, or music that appeals to certain groups of people. Get out of here, you piece of shit.

    • Chandler Of-Adelaide

      You’re herping that derp just a bit too much there, Caitlyn.

      It’s not exactly the first time BD have gotten persons from a band to list their favourite horror movies from a specific genre or director etc.

      • Caitlyn Gessing-Putz

        Totes magotes, bro. Just giving me some major fatigue. It’s embarrassing for the horror genre to be associated with bad metal music.

        • Chandler Of-Adelaide

          The only bad metal music is metalcore, hardcore, crabcore, deathcore basically anything-core. Mushroomhead are industrial so they’re fine.

  • WhoreWhisperer

    One of Miike’s best is one of his least well known. You guys got to check out GRAVEYARD OF HONOR. The movie has been made twice under the same title, but Miike’s version is better.

    Really loved Imprint. Such absurdly twisted fun. Glad to see it get a mention. ^_^

  • Sioux Michel

    ha glad to see I am not the only big fan of his work! Takashi Miike is definitely not for the faint of heart, easily offended or easily grossed out person. This shit is twisted, unnecessarily bloody, taboo on ALL different kinds of levels and most grotesque. Highly recommended!
