Mudvayne With Special Guests Zero 9:36, Hyro The Hero, & A Killer’s Confession Storm Through Grantville

1 min read

Last Saturday night, the Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in Grantville, PA played host to a killer lineup of heavy hitters. Mudvayne headlined the rain-soaked evening, with support from Zero 9:36, Hyro The Hero, and A Killer’s Confession.

A Killer’s Confession, led by the ever-charismatic ex-Mushroomhead frontman Waylon Reavis, tore through their set with the kind of energy that could power a small city. But let’s cut to the chase and talk about the real showstopper of the night—“Martyr.” This track isn’t just a song; it’s a full-on assault on your senses, blending the raw aggression of nu-metal with the melodic hooks of hard rock that could make even the most stoic headbanger tear up a little.

Next up, Zero 9:36 and Hyro The Hero braved the elements to keep the energy high. Zero’s unique blend of rap and rock translated well live, with his dynamic stage presence shining through the downpour. Hyro took things to the next level, literally jumping into the crowd to incite a mosh pit frenzy during his rap-meets-hardcore set. The rain only added to the raw intensity.

Of course, the main event was Mudvayne. The alt-metal legends took the stage and immediately launched into the classic “Dull Boy,” whipping the drenched crowd into a frenzy. Frontman Chad Gray sounded as unhinged as ever, while the band was firing on all cylinders behind him.

The setlist was a greatest hits collection with a few deeper cuts sprinkled in for die-hards. Songs like “Happy?” and “Not Falling” inspired massive crowd participation, while the band’s famous makeup and visual flair added to the spectacle. An epic rendition of “Dig” closed out the night on the highest of highs.

All in all, Mudvayne’s return to the stage did not disappoint. The band sounded as vital as ever, while the supporting acts more than held their own. A Killer’s Confession proved to be a powerful opener, while Zero 9:36 and Hyro The Hero overcame Mother Nature to keep the crowd hyped. Mudvayne may have brought the rain, but they also brought the pain in the best way possible. Don’t sleep on them if they comes to your town.
