    Dump Mudvanye. Get metallica. It's easier, and more interesting. Well, if you think Lars being a nancy wanker is interesting....

    :D

    Because Miscellaneous is for music related discussion that won't fir into the other categories, such as Basses, Amps, Setup, etc.

    Off Topic is for non music related discussion.

    unless you are the IRS it´s difficult to get how much money a band does...

    maybe a look at the FORBES list...

    That's kind of subjective, if you've ever heard the band....

  11. There'd really be no way to find that stuff out I'm afraid. Mudvayne are not a PLC, they don't have to make their accounts available to the general public. You could probably hazard a guess, but it would be very hard to do.

    Sorry:(.
     
  12. Find the website for their record companies and ask them! duh! :)

    Their album has gone gold in the US, so they have sold at least 500,000 copies...their contract is most likely in the 15-20% range, meaning they have receved $750,000-1,000,000 in royalties so far. These are just estimates of course, I doubt you could get real figures from the band...you would also have to know how much they spent on recording to figure out how much they made this past year. They also receive money from merchandise and touring.
