L.D. 50 by Mudvayne was appraised by critics for its technical and heavy style of music. It's has been referred to by the band as math metal. For the album they experimented with a ragged, dissonant sound; a sound collage prepared specially for the album that was used as a series of interludes.
Furthermore L.D. 50 was produced by Garth "GGGarth" Richardson and executive production by Slipknot member Shawn "Clown" Crahan.
