Another interesting note, the album comes out the same day they go on tour.  There won't be any live bootlegs or leaks this time.  This will be interesting.

PS That is the cover.  http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=136333  Is it big enough to fit on the back or are they going to start putting it on the front again.  I hope not.

"All dates feature MELVINS (2 sets) with TOTIMOSHI except:

* = MELVINS / ISIS / TOTIMOSHI
** = MELVINS / ISIS
+ = MELVINS"


Are the Melvins doing two sets on all the dates without Isis? The way i read that it makes it sound like Totimoshi is opening and then the Melvins come out for two sets :shock: Sorry if this has already been discussed, but I didn't see anything that indicated that it had.

Perhaps its a Mastodon type thing. Play all your new record straight through and then a set of other stuff.

That's the way I understand it.  Which is awesome.  Unless I go east coast again this year, I don't have to see Isis, I do get to see Totimoshi, and I get two Melvins sets.  I can deal with that just fine.

It's definitely different for the Melvins. In the same way that NWB was a departure
from their layered, graphic-filled covers of the past. I personally thinks it's neat!

Let's hope more imagination went into making the music on the album than went into making the cover art.

That's two strikes for Mackie, if she's responsible for this one.

I live in San Diego. The spot where they start the tour. I really am looking forward to hearing the new stuff live before anything else. Though I seriously think that they will probably book at least one show in LA before they hit the road for good. There is still plenty of time for that to happen. So I might even be seeing them before June 1st. Fine by me as long as I get to hear the new stuff!

i think it'd be super easy to leak unoffocial artwork and dozens of websites will put it up their website immediately without hestitation.

maybe anaconda could tell us more :P

also..  sometimes I think the contents of an album can reflect positively on the artwork.  like you think the art sucks and then you hear the album and you say "okay, I get it now. the artwork actually fits".   so I am thinking if this is the artwork it will "fit". if that makes any sense.

yeah, I hated the POTRE album cover before I actually listened to it. after that, I didnt mind it at all.

but still... this album cover is pretty bad, and the title kind of has... a cheesy attitude to it.

buzz has a thing for retro-wierdness.   alot of the song titles over the last 10 years have come from freaky sci-fi television shows, etc.

There is no way that is the cover!!!!

Even if Mackie wasn't designing it, which I'm sure she will, (or atleast have an opinion on whoever does) she wouldn't let this happen. The Star Spangled Banner artwork was pretty bad, but that was a 7". This is a full length record. Some of you may argue that some of their record covers are poorly designed, but you're reacting to the color scheme or subject matter, like the guy who mentioned not liking POTRE. They still took skill to design. You can tell.

C'mon. This is a Melvins LP, not a junior high punk band's demo. The artwork in question is just amateur-first-computer-class-graphic arts, looking. I think someone is shitting us.

I'm open to all sorts of design ideas myself. Maybe they felt it was
time to change it up a bit. How many times can you go to the well
and have little dingbats, animals, typographic icons, decorative
flourishes and pastel colours. Ultimately it's about the music inside
at the end of the day anyways.

The album title will be something completely different.  Like the Chicken Switch leak it's to throw off illegal downloads.  Poor saps will be typing "The Bride Screamed Murder" into Soulseek while the real album is called "Toe Jam Pop a Wheelie Big Time."   :wink:

Post by: nickoctane on March 10, 2010, 06:29:36 AM
After looking back at all the past covers i've come to a startling conclusion. That is, that virtually ALL Melvins cover art sucks!!! Sorry folks but thats how i see it. I have an MA in fine art so hopefully i know a little about what im talking about here (just a little mind!). Then again perhaps not!  :? Anyway the only Melv related covers that i think don't suck and are actually pretty darn fine are:

A Live History Of Gluttony And Lust
Nude With Boots
(A) Senile Animal
The Bootlicker
The Crybaby
Chicken Switch
Millenium Monsterwork

I dislike most album covers by most bands except for Converge, Baroness and Agorophobic Nosebleed.  I like the illustrative style more than photoshop images and text.

After looking back at all the past covers i've come to a startling conclusion. That is, that virtually ALL Melvins cover art sucks!!! Sorry folks but thats how i see it. I have an MA in fine art so hopefully i know a little about what im talking about here (just a little mind!). Then again perhaps not!  :? Anyway the only Melv related covers that i think don't suck and are actually pretty darn fine are:

A Live History Of Gluttony And Lust
Nude With Boots
(A) Senile Animal
The Bootlicker
The Crybaby
Chicken Switch
Millenium Monsterwork
Singles 1-12

As for all the dislike of the NWB cover that's probably my fav one!  8) :lol:

I went to art school too. This is just proof that all taste in art is subjective. Because I've always loved Melvins cover art, and their whole visual concept. I've frequently used it as an example of their superiority over other bands. They do things differently, and in my humble opinion BETTER than other bands.

how about something in the vein of lysol?   ONE.... BIG....  PUNISHING...  TRACK.

It's about the music for me. They could just put out a CD without artwork and I would be happy. But what matters is that THEY like the artwork. And thats just the front cover. It could be have some other cool stuff within.

I'm just happy that they are covering "Let Me Roll It". I have listened to that live cover many times.

The cover of the new one is fucking shit.

Melvins cover art was fucking awesome until the POTRE.

Houdini's cover - isn't it fine? The Trilogy's style is just something awesome - nice lovely flowers on the covers. Man, your mom loves it! And your mom probably doesn't love what's hiding behind the cover.

They had their own style now it's like fucking stuff of a fucking teenager who met the photoshop a few months ago and he's trying to make something weird.

Don't say the covers are unimportant because we love not only the Melvins music - we love the Melvins style.

That's all, fanboys.

What? POTRE's cover is a schlock. It's like 95% of the indie albums covers - it seems like it has a concept but it only seems. Even the simple white cover would be better than white cover with a smeared bloody shit on the right border.

very subjective - some people's tastes do not mirror others. what one considers
a masterpiece, another considers a piece of garbage. since it's all about personal
taste, both are right. it's like comparing an El Greco to a Jean Dubuffet. Both are

My point exactly. This is why it totally sucks.

I'm trying to convey why cover art is important (to me) and this is what I came up with:

I know that many of you are angry over the way that Bullhead (or Ozma) was recorded. You feel like the drums are too quiet, or tinny (or whatever). You dream of a re-issue with proper levels, etc. That is important to you and affects how you feel about those records. When I listen to them. I don't care. I don't play drums or know anything about the recording process and I think Bullhead and / or Ozma fucking rocks.

For me, artwork is important. I do graphic design for a living. It is what I know. It is all I know. I always look forward to the new artwork and I respect what Mackie (or any skilled designer) comes up with. Their art concepts are an important part of the Melvins. They are, for the most part, an art or avante metal band, so their visual process is important. Not equal to their musical process, but cover art is still important. The new cover is embarrassing. The equivolent to a badly recorded album.

Fair enough. Wait to you see the vinyl art for the album. That will knock your socks off.
I'm not sure if anyone's noticed yet but the child in the cover art is actually Buzzo when he was around 9yrs old.

Post by: Angus Khan on March 12, 2010, 12:35:23 PM
I think what it all boils down to is not so much opinion of art per se.  It's more people's disgust at what looks like 5 minutes work on Photoshop.  And this coming from a graphic designer is lazy no matter what way you look at it.  If they want camp horror flick style they could've taken ideas from Fantomas first two albums or many others.

Anyway I will be buying it and I will be enjoying it but I'd prefer if Mackie used some scissors,  glue, pencils and paper next time.

i agree with you here molotov... but potre has  some amazing art on the inside, I know the cover isnt very special at all, but inside is fucking cool. has a nice pattern background with weird creatures with human bodies and animal heads. like the woman in the nice dress with a big parrot head... shit like that is cool and really weird. it looks great on vinyl at least... im not sure what cd version is like.

I can't remember in all my days as a Melvins board member, having this much debate over a Melvins album cover. Seems like "the Army" is divided, with most folks claiming indifference or that the cover is awesome. Only a few have come forward to admit that it is not up to snuff. The one thing we all agree on is that all art is subjective which is, of course, a fact.

This is definitely not Mackie's work, so I am eager to find out who designed it (probably some high school kid that won a contest)

I am excited to see the whole package. Can't wait for the music...

I think it's funny how you(the bloat) come here and trash the album cover like it was done in 5 seconds. How is that a valid argument?

There's plenty of art that's done quickly. Ever heard of improvisation? Automatic writing? Sometimes some of the best art is done quickly and without thinking. An uninterrupted(by thoughts, reflection, etc) stream of creativity.

Above all, though, as this is the covert art, it must have been approved by Buzz & co. In the end all that matters is what the band thinks, and as I'm sure you know, they don't give a fuck what you, I, or any of their fans think. If they did, they wouldn't be the melvins.

I'm not saying you're not allowed to dislike it, I just don't agree with your harsh criticism.

I donno kinda hit an miss actually ... none I think are outright bad ... but some are definatly gems! HAT is fucking brilliant ... three jackasses ... that colour scheme ... fuck yeah! Eggnog kicks all kinds of ass, the Trilogy art cd and wax is fantastique! Alota the 7"s are pretty awesome ... As for cover art beyond the Melvins ...

Guys, I did it. Ok? Sorry to be such a disappointment. I only got the trial Photoshop so I learnt and designed this cover in 30 days.

They have done covers of classic rock before without problems. The recent Cream song comes to mind.

"Let Me Roll It" is a song that would sound really good with their line up. Especially the chorus with Buzz, Dale, Jared and Coady.  I would see it as having an epic feel to it like A Civilized Worm does.

The Devo song sounds great though and has a lot of energy.

Every time the Melvins do a cover of a tune it ends up better than the original. Well bar Smells Like Teen Spirit!


As a big Nirvana fan I'd have to disagree with that. Personally I thought the Melvins version sounded much better. It had alot more beef to it and I thought Leaf's vocals were a mile better than Kurt's.
Title: Re: The Bride Screamed Murder
Post by: Mad Arab on March 13, 2010, 08:23:24 AM
Well, I'd credit that to the very polished production of the Nevermind album. The cover by the Melvins was more of a clever yet obvious joke than anything else. Which is why I think some think it is a so-so cover. I like the cover. But David Yow with the Melvins did a better live version I think. Was it at the 40 watt club?

If it's about the music for me, then that is what it is about. Melvins style??? Is that some sort of boutique line of fashion and lifestyle? Did you buy the Nikes?
yes      yes          yes

While I would have enjoyed doing a Melvins cover, it would have been one of the lowest profile jobs I'd have worked on this year. You people probably see something I've designed on a person every day without ever realizing and I don't care if you do. My ego takes a backseat to the almighty paycheck.

I'm no record reviewer. I predict some of you will really like it, some of you will say you hate it but then say it grew on you and some of you have no taste anyways and like anything the Melvins put out cause your friend does. Some songs will be more popular than others. On one song you'll probably say 'Whats up with all the Jared?' And then someone will say they hope this is the last record with the BB guys and you'd like Deutron and Lorax to have a kid and you want the kid to play bass on the next one.

And somewhere else in this very thread some dipshit will say something about me knowing Moss. Which I do.

12 point buck is an awesome album that would be hard to top. 

been away for awhile and glad the last few pages got off the crying about the album art.  i could care less of the album art.  i don't display it or use it as a guage of what i'm going to hear.  it could have unicorns vomiting rainbows and i'd still buy it.  my 5 year old would listen to it then.  at least it is not a band shot. that is a lazy way to go.

Some guys from my hometown.  They're good friends of Coady's, and he's been known to wear Vomiting Unicorns t-shirts:

The Melvins - Ballad of Dwight Fry (live 2007) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fye_ba4zv6k#)

You can't really see it too well in that video, but in some other shots from that show it's more visible.  That seems to be the only clip of that show online anymore though.

Update:  Here's a clean picture of him in the shirt:

as far as the cover is concerned
i believe the Melvins are informing us about the pirate nature of politics
seeing as both John Kerry & Georgey Bush were Skull & Bonesmen
matter of fact they have been telling of that for years (see singles 1-12)
just as informative was the ASA cover, due to it's fore telling of the age of aquarius that is just around the corner
Buzz's lyrics are always on the esoteric tip

I don't know. I think art has a reason behind its creation, and that it's not always art for art's sake. What with the alleged humor of both Big Business and the Melvins collaborating on ideas for an album's title and cover art, and with the lowest common denominator in mind when selling music to their fan base (sex and violence), I think the Melvins are capable of a sleight joke. They don't have to be Tool to make something so hilarious.

But, it's just an interpretation. I'm sure it actually, REALLY, means nothing more than, "Hey man, get drunk and/ or stoned while listening to my murderous bong riffs and date raping drum blasts, dude. Let's party and shit!"

Post by: MrLuck87 on March 30, 2010, 08:59:07 PM
  I may not be the best person to review a new Melvins album because I am a huge fan and love pretty much everything they have ever done, but when it comes down to it that doesn't really matter.  The new Melvins album sounds very little like anything they, or any other band, has done ever before.

  If you've listened to the clips off amazon.com you may be under the impression that this a relatively straightforward rock album that sounds like a mix between their earlier efforts "The Maggot" and "A Senile Animal".  If that's the vibe you got you will be completely shocked hearing this for the first time!

  What makes "The Bride Screamed Murder" stand out more than anything is how inconceivably unpredictable it is.  One minute you'll hear a powerful riff that could easily be stretched into an entire song and then, seemingly out of nowhere, it completely changes.  This change could be as subtle as a jazzy drum solo or notes shifting around on each speaker, or it could be as drastic as having an army chant in the middle of a song.  Although this makes each song sound a little daunting at first in the long run it adds an incredible amount of depth.

  One of the best examples of how completely unpredictable this album is comes at the end of "Hospital Up".  The surprisingly thought provoking lyric "Hey remember - it won't be how you found it.  Hey forget it - it won't be what you wanted" comes up and it is almost immediately followed by what appears to be a stab at John Zorn's "goose honking New York jazz scene".  But wait, there's more!  Then THAT is immediately followed by the semi-traditional Melvins rocker "Inhumanity and Death".  Of course this song only seems normal by this albums standards.  It still makes "The Bloated Pope" and "The Smiling Cobra" seem completely normal by comparison.

  "The Bride Screamed Murder" is complex, challenging, heavy, weird, and completely unlike anything you have heard before.  But that certainly isn't a bad thing.  You'll discover new, interesting, and intriguing aspects about every song on each listen and it's extremely rewarding.  I'll be surprised if a better album comes out this year.

It's racist to make fun of people in your own country and that's not cool. Not cool at all...racism is a very bad thing.

However, for shits and giggles, over the net, it's perfectly fine to make wise cracks at foreign apes, beaners, rag-heads, ching chongs, charlies, yanks, slopehead, capheads, seppos, dagos, frogs, curry munchers, wetbacks, spearchuckers, wiggers, wogs, fobs, chinks, sand-niggers, pikey's, dune-coons, gooks, bogans, thicklips, timber niggers, ferals, jerry's, kaffirs, kikes, paddy's, quashie's, spics and oven-dodgers.

If I have offended anyone I make no apologies - lighten up! Here's a few that I'd probably get called; convict, ocker, bogan, skip, gubba, dingo rooter, feral, drongo, foster, shackle dragger, skippy poofter.

Like a mixture of the maggot and a senile animal.

That's a pretty accurate description. I had a feeling that this would be much heavier than ASA or NWB.

Side note - I think the drums are going to sound a lot better on this album. These are only 30 second MP3 quality samples but I can already tell that the drums sound a bit punchier than they did on the last two albums.

Yes, I agree with Dubby and Ego, that is a melodica: a toy- like instrument made famous by Augustus Pablo in his dub releases.

And the people who said its a mix between The Maggot and ASA has hit the mark based on the samples. Me Likey. Me likey a lot!

The excitement builds...much better than getting spoiled right away.

Part of the riff of Pig House sounds a bit like ZZ Top's Nasty Dogs and Funky Kings. Don't you think?

I can hear a lot of different eras of Melvins in there.  The Water Glass sounds very H.A.T. to me.  Evil New War God sounds a bit like the description a couple have given, a cross between Maggot and (a)S.A.  Pig House almost has a Sky Pup vibe to it.  Electric Flower sounds a bit like the last couple records with Jared's harmonizing.  Hospital Up sounds a little Bootlickerish.  If this album does leak it's going to be very difficult to resist the temptation.

*My Generation - Who song is like 3 min., sounds like it''s not a huge part of this track
*P.G. x 3 - I bet there's some heavy shit after that intro....or before that endtro.

Other than the sense that it's a 'rock' album & not 'experimental', these samples aren't very telling.

Based on those clips i'd say it still does sound quite a bit like (A)SA & NWB!!

Call me crazy but I'm not even tempting myself with those samples, not one...I have the luxury of being able to see the Melvins on the opening night of their tour and I don't intend on (purposefully) listening to any of the new material until I get to hear it live! I definitely understand the anticipation you all have after hearing the snippets but can you imagine how great it will be hearing the NEW, FULL songs live for the first time EVER? Will I make it? I think so. It's not like any of you could "spoil" this "feat" I'm trying to accomplish. The reviews are great and I can't wait till June 1st!

Call me crazy but I'm not even tempting myself with those samples, not one...I have the luxury of being able to see the Melvins on the opening night of their tour and I don't intend on (purposefully) listening to any of the new material until I get to hear it live! I definitely understand the anticipation you all have after hearing the snippets but can you imagine how great it will be hearing the NEW, FULL songs live for the first time EVER? Will I make it? I think so. It's not like any of you could "spoil" this "feat" I'm trying to accomplish. The reviews are great and I can't wait till June 1st! Plus I'm on a heavy HAT trip lately and I am in a very good place.
opening night of the tour should be also the day when the album will come out !i don't think you're crazy,i think yours is the better choice

Good call with not checking the snippets. It is more "magic" to hear the album for the first time proper. I was weak though and had to check the snippets.

I'm hoping they don't screw around and just release the vinyl at the same time as the cd like everyone else does!

I hope the radges come to Scotland this time. I haven't seen them since the ASA tour. I'm hoping even more that they come to Edinburgh seeing as the Picture House venue is getting "big" rock band names recently such as Killing Joke, Mudhoney etc etc

Still can't get enough of that Evil New War God clip. Gonna be my new favourite Melv tune it seems. Weird how i always end up loving track 2 on the albums. Bloated Pope, Blood Witch, Billy Fish, Queen, Night Goat etc!  :shock: :D

I'm more of a song 5 guy:
Pink Bat
Brain Center (5th song, 6th track)

I like the tracks where Buzz` vocal dominates, and I don`t like the tracks where there seems to be all 4 guys singing or Jared dominating. It doesn`t sound like a whole
different record than the two other with BB either, btw. Still good, if I go by the little percentage I`ve heard. Will of course buy it.

I really like it, and if those clips are anything to go on, I'll probably end up loving the shit out of this one.
I have a feeling "The Water Glass" will become my all-time favorite melvins opening tracks.

Am I alone in thinking that most people who will download this album in event of a leak are already fairly established Melvins fans who are 97% likely to buy it anyway? I've been a fan since '04 and have downloaded all the leaked albums but I also snatched up the CD and vinyl editions as soon as they came out. I dunno, I just don't think a leak will take all that much money away from them. Even in the event that a curious listener downloads it on a whim, they'll probably either like it and buy more material or they won't do anything.
Maybe I just hold too much faith in the non-record-buying public?  :?
If it weren't for my 13-year-old (at the time) self downloading Hostile Ambient Takeover and consequently discovering (and spending plenty money on) one of my favourite bands, I doubt I ever would have gotten into them some other way.

Yep.

On the wider point, I've always said that downloading actually helps a band like the Melvins, as a pretty good example of a band that are quite difficult to 'get' unless you hear their whole (or a sizeable chunk of) discography. If someone downloads the entire back catalogue, and likes it, they are going to go and buy the records, or at least go out to some shows, etc.

I think Buzz has said in the past that downloading isn't something that concerns him, has he not?

Holy FUCK! I've been watching videos of the melvins playing My Generation live. I can't wait to hear how it sounds on the album.

The Melvins are the only band that can take a song that's been covered ad nauseum, make it their own while keeping the essence of the song intact. I know I'm preaching to the choir here but GODDAMNIT I CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR THIS FUCKING ALBUM!

For me the release of a new Melvins is always weird. I really love the band yet i never get as hyped up about their releases as some other acts or as some of you folk seem to. I find its not until i've had their new LP a while that i actually really get into it or devote much time to listening. Dont think i even brought NWB until a week or two after release and it feels like i've only just started to love it this last six months. Probably get TBSM on release day tho.

Amazon now has the cd available for preorder.  $14 but I'm going to wait to see if there is a special version like there was with Nude With Boots.

Does anyone remember when they put Nude With Boots on their myspace?  I can't remember if it was before or after the official release date.  The album leaked by that point so no one cared.

*Edit* After reading the picture it's obvious they put it up before the release date.  Maybe they'll do the same this time.

after one solid listen through, i will say this: this album is really far out. it's a far cry from the last two albums, and those 30 second clips on amazon leave you with NO IDEA of what this album actually contains. it's a brand new melvins era ladies and gentleman. for the fans of melvins experimentation... you will get it in flying colors on this one. it sounds like a whole new band. the BB lineup has culminated, and it's like a fucking volcano.

I'm not good at reviews so I'll leave that to others. But I will say this, TBSM is WAY better than Nude With Boots in my opinion. They have some traditional Melvins style riff rock and a bit of weirdness thrown in as well. Though I get the impression that the weirdness is sort of forced for no good reason. The first song after the 2 minute mark reminded me of the boot camp section of  the movie Full Metal Jacket , with the call and response military vocals. Over all it's a very solid album. It's better than the last Melvins record and that's good enough for me. Can't wait to see these songs playerd live.

Anyone care to mention whether that last track P.G. x3 sounds like the 30 sec amazon clip all the way through??

It sounds like that for about half of the song and then the ending gets really weird.  Not in a COD weird way, just...weird.  It's one of the few parts of the album I'm not sure if I like but that's what make The Melvins so great.

i find it a little hard to listen to.  it has a strange structure to it, ie:  i expect a heavy part here or there but they are in different places and it throws me off a little bit.  to my ears it seems the parts i like most of the cooler parts are dominated by BB. 

anyways, when i gave it a full first listen i didn't like it nearly as much as NWB, and i probably wouldn't listen to it that much.  and i'm pretty damn sure i said that about the last 3 or 4 albums and now can't understand why i would feel that way.  they are amazing albums.  so i hope Bride will grow on me more than i currently expect it to

I can already picture myself expecting the weird changes on the 20th listen and totally rocking out to it.  This is a very challenging album but that's why I love it so much.

I also second the guy who said this doesn't sound like any previous Melvins album.  It really doesn't but you can tell it's The Melvins.

At first listen, I didn't really enjoy it, but that means nothing (it took me veeeery long to enjoy the Maggot, but now I dig it!)
It's really a weird album, with strange changes, a strange structure and everything.

But I love when they do a bit of "My Sharona" ending it with "My Generation"!

Anyone feel that the end of Hospital Up is making fun of the whole John Zorn crowd? I know Buzz has had a sly dig at him before.

It's funny too, I remember reading this board when A Senile Animal leaked and everyone was very subtle and coy about hearing it. Now a few years later and no-one gives a shit  :lol:

Actually those are my exact thoughts!  At first it annoyed me but now on my 6th listen I laugh my ass off every time that part comes up.  I'm actually kind of surprised they didn't make that a separate track like they did with Flush.  If they play Hospital Up live I will seriously be amazed if they play that part.

Oh oh oh!  And then it goes into Inhumanity and Death!  Dammit I love this album so much already!

My first thoughts while listening to the album are that it's just beautifully retarded.   While ASA and NWB are two Melvins albums, along with Stoner Witch and HAT, that you could recommend to somebody to start with . . . this album is nothing of the sort.   It's all over the place (in a good way).  There is a style/influence represented on this album to keep everybody happy and turn everybody off all at the same time. 

It's wonderful.

Here's an idea, get off your fucking high horse. The majority of the people on this board support the Melvins financially in more ways than one which includes but is not limited to buying the albums. Take a quick peak at "post your melvins collection" and you'll see what I mean.

If anyone here wants to get a taste of the album before the buy it (because most will), then so be it.

Who needs a "taste" of the Melvins in here before the album actually hits the stores? Do you doubt them or their ability to put out an album that is worth the money? COD or Prick is an arguable point I guess, but 2 albums out of the rest gives reason to try it (illegally at that) before you buy it?

People can wait a friggin month. It's not that hard to do. Plus there are no guarantees for the Melvins that those who do download it claiming that mindset will follow through. There is no rationalization for it other than not having a problem with stealing. Again, my opinion. They are losing money because of this. You cannot claim that 100 percent of those who download the album will in fact buy the real thing when it comes out. We look at them as a band. But another way of looking at them is that they are a small business that wants a profit for the product they put out. But that is hampered (and I don't know by how much) by people downloading their albums illegally. They do lose a certain amount of money.

There is no rationalization for it other than not having a problem with stealing. Again, my opinion. They are losing money because of this. You cannot claim that 100 percent of those who download the album will in fact buy the real thing when it comes out.

No but I can claim that the links will exist no matter what and that I am going to buy it.  If I went to Buzzo's house and stole the recordings then yes, that would be stealing and that's wrong.

Here is my review.  Feedback is appreciated since this is a really tough album to review.

  I may not be the best person to review a new Melvins album because I am a huge fan and love pretty much everything they have ever done, but when it comes down to it that doesn't really matter.  The new Melvins album sounds very little like anything they, or any other band, has done ever before.

  If you've listened to the clips off amazon.com you may be under the impression that this a relatively straightforward rock album that sounds like a mix between their earlier efforts "The Maggot" and "A Senile Animal".  If that's the vibe you got you will be completely shocked hearing this for the first time!

  What makes "The Bride Screamed Murder" stand out more than anything is how inconceivably unpredictable it is.  One minute you'll hear a powerful riff that could easily be stretched into an entire song and then, seemingly out of nowhere, it completely changes.  This change could be as subtle as a jazzy drum solo or notes shifting around on each speaker, or it could be as drastic as having an army chant in the middle of a song.  Although this makes each song sound a little daunting at first in the long run it adds an incredible amount of depth.

  One of the best examples of how completely unpredictable this album is comes at the end of "Hospital Up".  The surprisingly thought provoking lyric "Hey remember - it won't be how you found it.  Hey forget it - it won't be what you wanted" comes up and it is almost immediately followed by what appears to be a stab at John Zorn's "goose honking New York jazz scene".  But wait, there's more!  Then THAT is immediately followed by the semi-traditional Melvins rocker "Inhumanity and Death".  Of course this song only seems normal by this albums standards.  It still makes "The Bloated Pope" and "The Smiling Cobra" seem completely normal by comparison.

  "The Bride Screamed Murder" is complex, challenging, heavy, weird, and completely unlike anything you have heard before.  But that certainly isn't a bad thing.  You'll discover new, interesting, and intriguing aspects about every song on each listen and it's extremely rewarding.  I'll be surprised if a better album comes out this year.

Based on the reviews (and I still haven't heard a single note, Day 2: still going strong, big whoop) the vibe I get is similar to my feelings on the albums Stoner Witch and Stag. They way you all describe the character of this one is similar to how I describe those two albums to other people. Now it probably sounds NOTHING like those two albums but based on what I'm hearing...it seems to be that sort of caliber.

And Buzz's comments about "the next album" being a "step in (whatever it was) direction" seem to be accurate as well.

The Bride Screamed Murder is really crazy.

Yup the BB/Melvins thing has completely flowered ... or exploded! What they've been pushin' at since absorbing those boys is finally realized ... for those expecting/hoping for that Maggot kinda feel predicted ... best dig Fuzzy Dice Swingin' Big Balled Camero Rock!! While up until now that push was kinda rubbin' me wrong ... now it's a happier ending! Indeed, sounds like nothing they've pulled off before ... while firmly in the "rock" vein it's got some great arrangement that keeps the ball curving ... that's where alots' comin' from I think ... on first listen I heard alota what kinda seemed predictable heard 'em before "classic rock" style riffs and tunes ... much like the lighter more accessible fare from NWB ... a kinder, gentler Melvins ... but this time around that

Hey guys I've gotten a few e-mails already saying that people were posting download links to the leaked album on this message board, I know there's nothing I can do about the album leaking as this is the nature of the world in which we live but do me a huge favor and please don't post links and/or buried treasure maps on how to acquire the album illegally on the bbs. By the time I got to the computer to remove the link it appears as though another moderator already did which I really appreciate. Independent bands and labels struggle to make ends meet, and if the people that put the music out don't post the music for free on the internet then that most likely means they don't want it done and this message board shouldn't be turned into a tool to circumvent their wishes. Thanks!

It's hard to wrap my head around this new album.  I know that I like it.  I'm curious about the inspiration behind the army chant in the water glass.  There's not alot of slow building ambient noise and the sludge factor seems to have been removed.  I miss these things but I also understand that every album cannot be sludgy.  It feels a bit surreal, kind of like one of those Melvins dreams where they release an album of showtunes or something.  

I'm trying hard not to burn it out.  

Which song was from the 90's

I'll spare those that haven't heard the record a song-by-song breakdown (for now), but this sounds like the most fun our boys have had in the studio yet. Someone posted earlier that it reminded them of Prick meets the Maggot (or something) and I can see that, but not in a literal sense. The Bride Screamed Murder is peppered with moments that remind me of "Roll Another One". Brief flashes of heavy-handed wackiness, drum-offs, a capella sing-alongs, right turns, whistling, left turns, upside down, heaviness, melody, drunk jazz, kazoos. It's not experimental in the Honky or Stag sense. Maybe more in the vein of "Flush". You know, weird for weird's sake.

I mean just look at the fucking cover. Buzz will tell you that they were totally serious, but I get the sense there was a lot of goofing off in between nailing down some fucking cool, intricate riffage. It's not inherently heavy or anything, so it's hard to compare to any of their other stuff. In fact, if anything can be said about TBSM, and I think it already has been, there is no other record in their catalog that sounds like this one. Those of you who are choosing to wait, get really excited.

There is a lot to absorb here and it's still Big Business era Melvins, so don't be expecting the Maggot or Ozma or some shit. Those came out a long time ago, but it's easily the best batch of tunes they've cobbled together since HAT / POTRE.

PS. Can anyone tell me what is happening at the 3 minute mark of "Ill Finish You Off"? Is that a Skin Horse thing going on?

I caved.  I DON'T feel bad.  They're getting my money the day it comes out.  Probably a few times.  Cd, vinyl, whatever else it comes out on.  It's those that don't pay the band for their time and effort that should be ridiculed and harrassed.

That said, I cannot wait to see how some of this material translates live, and to see how some of the crowd reacts to it.  This record is all over the place.  VERY different from ASA or NWB.  Not as rock accesible, even though it has the pounding riffs, but they come and go just as fast as they start.  

I'd watched interviews where Buzz has said he likes to keep it simple.  Use pedals and equipment that can be easily replaced, should it break down on the road.  It got me to thinking I'd like to hear an album with some experimentation in the sense that the band work with some things that would be difficult to reproduce live.  Weird pedals, weird changes, vox, and just use things that cannot be possibly be recreated live without having 20 people onstage.  This isn't quite it, but it's certainly going that direction.  The organs, harmonica, military call and answer;  PG X 3 !!  Those vox are amazing.  I keep listening and forgetting it's just vocals at times.  I hope they finish the live sets with this song.  The guitar after the vox only part is beautiful.   Then the kid  1 2 3 4 5 6.....They can do what's needed to finish the show with it, I just hope they do.  4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 44444444444444444444444

This was a weird first listen, but like many have said, it grows on you.  



Oh, and they know it's been leaked.  So just either d/l it and buy the cd when it comes out, or wait for it to come out and buy it.   Just don't be a dick and d/l it and not buy the album.  Because then your ripping off my favorite band and I'll hate you forever.  :)

when you see a photo you like on the net do you track down the photographer and forward him/her some money, moreso when you use the photo for a blog, message board or desktop?
same goes for alot of various art and media?
ill prob buy the album on vinyl but thats besides the point. the rules have changed for the music recording industry, thats the way it is. guilt trips are for the church and mothers with young children.

I disagree with the people who say this album sounds nothing like earlier albums.

I especially hear some parts in some songs which are similar to "Let God Be Your Gardener" (Pig House, Electric Flower), some Maggotesque music (first part of THe Water Glass, Inhumanity and Death) and some melodic stuff similar to lets say the first half of "The Bloat" (Hospital Up).

"some parts in some songs" doesn't mean the entire album sounds like something they've done before.  If a new fan came up to me and said he loved The Maggot this wouldn't be the next album I'd recommend.

I haven't heard it yet simply cuz I've been too busy procrastinating and attempting to study for an exam next week.  I will buy it of course but if it's leaked so be it.  I think Melvins fans are loyal.  This isn't top 40 disposable stuff you steal and forget about.  I can pretty much guarantee that every member here will buy it, some will even buy it on a few formats so whoever this high horse dude is- he is completely mistaken.  Nobody likes opinions and values forced down their throat.  I'm against downloading if all you do is download but I trust that the members here only download to sample the product.  Just look at some of the member's collections that they post, shelves and shelves of cds and vinyl  not a hard drive full of random shit.

It's truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Well, for this album at least. It would be interesting if I tried to do that for every album from now on too. I have a good chance at that as long as I can hit up one of the shows early on in the album's tour. They usually start somewhere on the west coast.

What's the big deal? Listen now, buy on June 1st (I'll be buying it at the murch table to ensure the Melvins get as much of my money as possible). There, my conscious is clear.

I just prefer to hear it live first, I believe I've stated this opinion on numerous occasions (but that was, shit, like 30 pages ago)...and I could care less about downloading it...

It's truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Well, for this album at least. It would be interesting if I tried to do that for every album from now on too. I have a good chance at that as long as I can hit up one of the shows early on in the album's tour. They usually start somewhere on the west coast.
See you at the Casbah?

If no LA shows are announced..I will make the drive..
I have a sneaky suspicion the MELVINS will announce an AMOEBA day set and a Troubador set. :-k

I have to say, I agree with norecess and others... to an extent.  I felt that BB had ruined the Melvins in the past, and I'm still not enamored with ASA and NWB.  But this album really is the best thing they've done with BB so far, and a vast improvement over the last two.  It's the best album since Pigs, which is to say, not as good as Pigs.  I still miss Kevin, like I think a number of fans here do, and I miss Dale drumming solo (way heavier than dueling drums every time), but that said this is the new Melvins, and the new Melvins have just made a giant leap forward from ASA and NWB.  It's got a bit of everything.  The only classic Melvins album that's really missing for me personally is the slow heavy  (See How Pretty, Hag Me, At The Stake, Anti-Vermin Seed).  My Generation comes close, but doesn't quite make it to that former level of heavy they used to reach fairly regularly.

I could understand that ASA and NWB rubbed people the wrong way, it had a strong classic rock feel to it. That's fine, I understand that. But, man, this one is just too damn good. It sounds like nothing they've ever done.

IMO, the fact that Kevin was held in such high regard as the bassist par excellence for the Melvins has a lot to do with some people not being all that into the Melvins/BB.

At the same time, though, isn't it kind of ironic that so many people here went ape shit over Here Come the Waterworks, rightly so, only to turn on BB once they were usurped by the Melvins.  :-k

Yes and no.  I love Big Business.  Just don't love 'em in the Melvins.  Honestly I like Here Come The Waterworks and Mind The Drift better than ASA or NWB.  Mind The Drift was more like a Melvins album than either of those.  I really dig Bride though and it's still growing on me.  Took a looooooooooooong time to get into ASA and NWB.

I miss Kevin's dance and the fact that they used to play songs from The Maggot and H.A.T.  Other than that I think this is the best line up yet.

The Mechanical Bride is slow and heavy but on the album it sounds a little weak.  It's hard listening to the studio version after hearing it live.

I successfully downloaded The Bride Screamed Murder(sorry guys I couldn't wait), and it is everything I was hoping the new album would be. Since downloading it yesterday, I have listened to it 10 times and will probably listen to it another 20 or so over the weekend. While I love ASA and NWB; BSM blew off the top of my skull. It is weird, and experimental just like a great Melvins album should be. In my opinion it is the best thing they have done since H.A.T.,even better than POTRE which I thought was amazing.

i like chocolate and i like cheese, but not the combination of it. i do love big biz on its own, maybe with the exception f their last album.

it does seem better than NWB, which was already better than (A)SA, but for a MELVINS album i use different standards.

It's the best album since Pigs, which is to say, not as good as Pigs.

POTRE, the pig skin/starve already EP and the stuff with Haze XXL are among my favorite things they've done the past few years (see a connection there?). POTRE was the last new melvins album that really made me want to listen to it over and over again.

but please don't call me a hater -- that's such a big word.

King Buzzo should use his Les Pauls again, this blech-guitar sounds weak!

I hate that sound too, live and on record.
But he is deaf in the lower registers, so there's no way switching back to a bassy guitar tone.
Solution: Melvins need a new guitar player.
Kick Buzzo out now!!!

Yeah, Bass is arguably one of the most important parts to the Melvins. The band is very different throughout each era of bassist and it's quite easy to break it up that way, so it's not surprising a lot of people don't like Melvins with BB because there is obviously a huge influence on the band because of it. I don't mind it to be honest, just glad they're still going.  :P

By the way who was the longest bassist? Kevin? What was that? 7 years? BB has already been with them for 4 or 5!

Yep.  1998-2005.  Big Business will break the record in 2013 or 2014 depending on what months Kevin joined and left.  Big Business joined in Jan 2006.

He's probably right tho. I can see the Melvins/BB thing lasting quite some time yet, who knows perhaps 10 years more! Although somehow, in the end i do think that they will both go their seperate ways and change things up once again.

Based on the reviews (and I still haven't heard a single note, Day 2: still going strong, big whoop) the vibe I get is similar to my feelings on the albums Stoner Witch and Stag.

One LP in the past 10 years doesn't count as frequently releasing albums.  Their tours seems to be pretty rare too.  However if you count the Hanson Brothers I'd probably agree.

Until Green Honey gets a TBSM lyric topic going..........

PG X3

The title seems so obvious now :)


They change around the lyrics and structure slightly.

O Peggy Gordon, You are my darling
Come sit you down upon my knee
And tell to me the very reason
Why I am slighted so by thee

I wish I was in some lonesome valley
Where womankind could not be found
And  little birds sing upon the branch's
And every moment a different sound





I hope they close the shows with this.

Shit, I could listen to a whole album of them singing like this.  The vocals are hypnotizing.

Not only thieves but lazy too. Can someone write up a decent review? Only one has so far. People seem mixed up. One says Bullhead. Another says Stag. Another says The Maggot.

I say it doesn't sound anything like any other MELVINS album I've heard.  in fact, I don't even really hear any songs that remind me of previous MELVINS songs.  for example: ______ is this album's Civilized Worm.

.......is something I might post had I heard the new album in its entirety.

well, no review but i'm gonna add another one in there and say ozma.
not so much in tone or the songs are similar, more as in the flow of the album. leaving the listener (or maybe just me) confused as to which song im listening to at times. the songs go through many changes, yet never descend into free rock. and thats the beauty of the album.
i never really liked nwb and asa and can safely say i never will. but i love this one. ill finish you off gives me the smiles and the nods.
the irony of this for me is that i saw melvins tour those albums maybe 5-6 times and i doubt ill see them tour this due to geograhical distances.

I agree, I disagree............It just seems that some people are looking for something to compare this to, and if they can't, the don't like it.  When I first heard the Melvins, I became a fan because I loved the songs, AND because it was different than ANYTHING I'd ever heard.  I stay a fan because I still LOVE the songs BECAUSE they are different than anything I've yet to hear. 

This isn't in direct reply to anyones opinion, it's just a stream of thought.

1 listen through and I'm not totally blown away. Not really a surprise.

There are parts, similar to the last two, where it's almost like, Melvins cliches built into the riffs or fills. A bit samey. I guess that'll happen almost 30 years into a career. Other parts make me stop and say "This is interesting", especially that damn pump up first song. They feel like they are really coming together, not just as big business playing what the Melvins want, but as a legit 4/5 piece.  Pig House sounds like Judas Priest hung out with Morricone.

i have to admit, i'm really starting to like this album a whole lot, it took some listens though...when i was listening to it for the first time, the way the band sounds like especially stuck out, rather than the music. i was disappointed, slightly annoyed even. they're one of my favorite band after all, how could i betray them! i want to like it, but it sucks! or doesn't it? after a few listens you're starting to familiarize with some of the music, and then.. oh boy, the fun part is slowly starting..

a new album, there have actually only been a few (maybe none, lysol?) melvins album that i loved upon first listen, most leave you somewhat puzzled but there is always an aspect that makes you go back and listen to it, and again, and again... even melvins classics like charmicarmicat (does it really matter how you spell this?) or "at the stake" take at least a dozen or so to be fully appreciated, and with every listen you find yourself peeling off another layer off the core of the song, hearing parts that you're sure weren't there the first time you listened to it!

i have noticed some of the outros/second parts especially are brilliant (inhumanity & death, pig house... my generation!), loving the screeching, maggot-resembling, high-pitched guitar attacks high on the fretboard... who knows what he's playing exacty?, but it sounds fucking cool!!! lukin forward seeing this material live in full combat mode.

Based on the reviews (and I still haven't heard a single note, Day 2: still going strong, big whoop) the vibe I get is similar to my feelings on the albums Stoner Witch and Stag.

 and my immediate reaction has been: seems like Stag, more than anything else.
my thought exactly.love every single track of this album,especially Evil New War God and Hospital Up (Bootlicker vibe?). i consider I'll Finish You Off a Big Business song.


and with every listen you find yourself peeling off another layer off the core of the song, hearing parts that you're sure weren't there the first time you listened to it!

oh yes!this is Melvins my friend  :D

a friend of mine was telling me the other day that this is the reason that she doesn't like bands like the melvins. it's not predictable enough. she'd rather listen to bands like the rolling stones all day because with every album you know exactly what to expect.  :|

on the other hand, i'm with you on this all the way. this is the exact reason i like a lot of the bands i like. it always seems to me that a lot of the people around here either want the lysol days back, or the rutmanis days back. the melvins are still on that path forward. i just hope for these peoples sake that they like the next incarnation more...

I was driving home one of my cooks the other night. He's a younger guy, into more modern metal, and i've been turning him onto the Melvins for a bit now. So I had the new album on and he's grooving on it. Then My Generation comes on and it blew his mind. I actually said while we were listening 'It's like he keeps throwing in little bits of the Entwistle solo'... Anytime you can get compared to 'The Ox' I'd say youre doing a good job on the bass.

Independent bands and labels struggle to make ends meet, and if the people that put the music out don't post the music for free on the internet then that most likely means they don't want it done and this message board shouldn't be turned into a tool to circumvent their wishes.

I could have lived without the Jared song though... but there are eight other great tracks to make up for it. The vocals are so much better than NWB's.

The military cadence caught me so off guard the 1st time. Awesome. But the best part of all is I got my 9:30 club tickets yesterday, I cannot wait to hear how this is all done live.

Ya, that was a pretty retarded statement. They're just re-interpreting the stutter on the original
in their own Melvin-y way by using a different speech impediment. Dale took out his retainer
and came up with the lisp.

From the Administrator of this site:

Hey guys I've gotten a few e-mails already saying that people were posting download links to the leaked album on this message board, I know there's nothing I can do about the album leaking as this is the nature of the world in which we live but do me a huge favor and please don't post links and/or buried treasure maps on how to acquire the album illegally on the bbs. By the time I got to the computer to remove the link it appears as though another moderator already did which I really appreciate. Independent bands and labels struggle to make ends meet, and if the people that put the music out don't post the music for free on the internet then that most likely means they don't want it done and this message board shouldn't be turned into a tool to circumvent their wishes. Thanks!

I think it was sold at their shows with Hostile Ambient Takeover in limited supply. They show up on ebay from time to time, anything from $10 to $50 I reckon (mine was $25). A cute little CD-sized book with random photos, nonsense, riddles, etc, artwork by Burlesque and Mackie. I'll keep my eyes peeled for you.

Thanks for the heads up about Evil New War God being posted on their Myspace. My first impression is that I like it! I hear elements of The Maggot and a faint reminder of Pigs Of The Roman Empire from the riff starting around the 3:10 mark. Mix that with the sound of the Melvins as they are currently and that, I think is an accurate description of the song. A potent mix of marvelous!

Post by: Dumpster D on May 13, 2010, 03:58:08 PM
yeah as LONG AS IT DOES BUZZ'S LAUGH!!!

that is a laughing fuck-riot!

I'd push the button really fast...YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN...I can hear it now...it's fucking hilarious!!

Dale has almost gotten buzz's laugh too...like beavis and butthead...two guys that have spent WAYYY too much time together...

I LOVE IT!

get prouction rights and I'll support this operation, I want a kenner brand Buzzo with "life like" hair, and a set of mu mu's...and accessories that include a chihuaua...uh...crackerbarrel take-out box, and uh...44 magnum, not to include the more obvious Custom les paul...sold seperate.

Origional Dale should include gardening gloves, sticks...he is obviously just going to have a weeeny bender and nothing more.

heh...good fucking times.

a good accessory figure for all this would be the "drunken colledge kid"

Buzz should come with an El kabong guitar smashing action arm...HI-YAH! *KRAWSH*

what would be the BEST 10 quotes for a talking Buzzo figure?

or, "I'm not your parents, I don't care if someone kills ya!"

but yeah, I killed kurt cobain is defenetly number 2 apart from that laugh of his!

As awesome as this box set is, am I the only one who is more excited by the fact that The Melvins are re-releasing Electroretard?

They better fucking re-release Electroretard individually.

The box set is limited to 300. This is going to be a fucking pain in the ass to get a hold of considering they'll have to split the 300 somehow in two. Not only is this going to sell like fucking hot cakes but there's inevitably going to be a bunch of fucking asshole cock smokers who are going to be buying at least two copies just so they can sell one on ebay. Ugh.

Like I said, this box set is awesome and I would love to get my hands on one but the price is going to be ridiculous and 300 just doesn't not sound like a lot. Again, especially considering the pricks who are going to buy copies just to sell them on ebay.

UGH.

Maybe they'll limit it to one per customer, hopefully. Otherwise it's like asking people to make money off their backs.

either way, re-release electroretard individually please.

Best pop-oriented song by them in 10 years or more
easily. Harmonies on the 'hey remember ' part are
so addictive.

goes: "giant penguins silly, tear up filthy airwaves.."

well...it's been recorded and obviously undergone some mastering applications, I wouldn't say it's a big deal or nuthin' (us raving about something NOBODY OWNS YET!)

it's only the best thing to ever happen in your life, don't worry about it.

don't look a me, I'd post about melvins albums that don't exist at all...then again, feel free to point and stare all you want.

I don't really have any answers why this thread got so huge...I just felt like posting too many irrelevant things, it adds up a bit over a few years.

we shouldn't be so exited...I don't know what anyone is really talking about...I have heard a few short samples off youtube and damned If I know any better if this album will be worth this petty fan-based HYPE!

tell you what, you find this thing for 16.99 at your local record store when it comes out in a month or so, be happy you got anything at ALL!

  ooOOoo colour vinyl, rare pressing...limited edition, big deeeeeel

...pressing shmesshing...edition shmedition....I hope you all get mugged on the way to the record store.

FUCKIN MAKE THAT SHIT...I think that would totally be THE best pinball machine in the world

the best fucking Idea I think I've heard since I got here!!!

god damn I can see it exactly what It looks like and EVERYthing!!

It could get annoying though...but damn, it the samples constantly changed and there were hundreds of

Eeep , Ork...

damn I think you've got something that would be totally market-able...I'd keep that Idea all to yourself around here dude.

what edition would it be (1, 2, 3, 4) or all albums combined...extra bonus points should cue something HEAVY when you score!!!

like that sludge break in suspended animation...god damn BUZZ's guitar is sooooooOOOOSOOOOOOsooooooo tastey in fantomas!!!

that is a pretty "for real" Idea!

I did not download it, however I was able to listen to an online stream of the entire album. I think it's good overall but the last track PGx3 in my opinion is a throwaway track much like Spread Eagle Beagle from the Houdini studio album. I never listen to it. I'll Finish You Off is probably my favorite off the album. This opinion is just based off a one time listen though. As for The Who cover they call My Generation?, it's decent but I was underwhelmed by it. Makes me wish even more that they would have put their version of Let Me Roll It on the album instead.

I think they chose My Generation because there was a lot more room to 'play around' with it.  Plus, their take on it is different from the original, whereas they kind of did a straight cover of Let Me Roll It.

PGx3 in my opinion is a throwaway track  I never listen to it. As for The Who cover they call My Generation?, it's decent but I was underwhelmed by it. Makes me wish even more that they would have put their version of Let Me Roll It on the album instead.
I completely agree. i've listened to Bride probably like 30 times now but P.G.x3 only about twice. Not my cup of tea at all! Let Me Roll It would have been way way WAY better. Gotta disagree about My Generation tho - sounds great to me.

I think P.G.x3 is awesome ... on it's own as a stand alone tune it is great ... even if it wasn't the Melvins ... but because it seems like such a left turn for them ... it's even better ... confounding and confusing expectations ... Although not overtly ... it is somehow creepy as shit even while being angelic and tender ... and that ending 4444444444444 ... fucking awesome ... real Surfers' vibe ... Definatly one of the standouts for me! The way it works as closer reminds me alot of Prig from Bootliker ... another killer tune ... underrated and definately not a throw away!

I don't get the Surfers vibe myself, but I do agree it was totally unexpected.  I still hope they close out the shows with it.  It'd be a great ending and totally upset all the beefheads wanting to hear Revolve or Honeybucket again, so they can get one last punch on someone in the pit.

when they say "my generation" at the end of track #2 it's like wtf?  there are a few stupid parts, and My Generation is really boring as a track, but overall I am loving the album.  There are a few parts where I'm like wtf but overall it's weirder than the previous 2 efforts which I was hoping for.  Just wish it was longer and there were more tracks.

After listening to this multiple multiple multiple times over the past week and4 days I can honestly say there isn't a bad track on it. 

Anybody bitching about anything is out of their friggin mind.

I would like a nice studio version of Let Me Roll It . . . maybe on a single or something . . . in the near future.  I'm not bitching.  I'm just being greedy.

Because it's been done before?  An "indy band" saying Rock Me?  Because all the big label bands say "ROCK ME!" ?  Because the Melvins said "Rock Me"?

Words don't mean a thing.  It's who says them and how they are said that matters.  ( That's pretty much a George Carlin take on words themselves, but I think it applies. )

Granted, it struck me as odd hearing it the first time, but I know Buzz has a deep interest in war's, and in military cadence's.  It makes sense that one has been added in to a song.  And as I've said before, I would love to hear this cadence open the show.

I do want to point out that this is the best album with this lineup yet. My critiques of it are minor. You can tell that they have fun with these guys and at this point in their lives I think that is very important to Buzz and Dale. You can tell with this album by the little weird parts that they are happy or am I off my rocker?

I think your right.  But I think they've always had fun. 

There is never going to be another album you can compare to a previous album.  Never has been. And I get the feeling that's the biggest complaint from a few people on this board.  The Melvins/BB lineup doesn't sound like Kevin era, or Mark era, or Lori.....It never will.  The past is way in the past.

No it's not that and I can't stand the "elitist" or "indy" attitude that you are talking about. I leave that to college aged individuals who thinks thats a really "cool" way to be.  My angle was that Buzz is like a genius when it comes to cool lyrics and hearing him say Rock Me Rock Me Rock Rock Steady threw me off is all.

The military cadence concept is really cool. A cadence is supposed to be catchy and keeping it simple is a way to make it easily memorable, perhaps that was why he chose "...Rock Steady".

But there's nothing wrong with liking an older incarnation of the Melvins over this one, despite what a few flogs here are saying.

The fact you can have 25+ years worth of favourite albums to pick from is a testament to how fucking great this band is.

Oh, don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with it.  We all have our favorite lineups.  I just get weary of hearing people complain about how it's not like this album, or that album, or blah blah.  It's never going to be like anything else.  That is why it's so good.

I think the Fantomas pinball machine idea Is a scorcher!

FUCKIN MAKE THAT SHIT...I think that would totally be THE best pinball machine in the world

the best fucking Idea I think I've heard since I got here!!!

god damn I can see it exactly what It looks like and EVERYthing!!

It could get annoying though...but damn, it the samples constantly changed and there were hundreds of

Eeep , Ork...

damn I think you've got something that would be totally market-able...I'd keep that Idea all to yourself around here dude.

what edition would it be (1, 2, 3, 4) or all albums combined...extra bonus points should cue something HEAVY when you score!!!

like that sludge break in suspended animation...god damn BUZZ's guitar is sooooooOOOOSOOOOOOsooooooo tastey in fantomas!!!

that is a pretty "for real" Idea!

I was thinking that there could be one for each album.  Alot of pinball machines are made in a series anyway.  My favorite is the Elvira series but FANTOMAS would quickly change that. 
I would like it to include a magnet trick that makes the ballseem to defy gravity like in the elvira machine

It feels a little rushed at points. Like, they were having a great time in studio, and didn't think additions through. That's what keeps it from being great or awesome.  They choose to go from a goddamn awesome drum stomp to my sharona and someone yelling "my generation"? What is that shit. That's stupid. I'm sure you guy'll find some way to say "Oh, that's the secret dadaesque humor post-good neoabsurdism blah blah blah don't question them they know what they are doing blah blah blah" bending apologies, but that sucks.

It's about on the same level as NWB. ASA was better.

I just think the Melvins are feeling a touch samey at some points. Chord progressions and riff styles that just feel typical. There are flashes of brilliance, such as on Inhumanity, or Pig House, but overall meh.  I know, it's not bad it's different, whatever. They make fun of people like me, therefore I'm wrong in my assessment.

Post by: Justafilthylurker on May 17, 2010, 03:26:17 AM
Okay, someone streamed this right at me, I haven't fully stole it or anything, just heard it.

The best songs are the first and the last ones. I agree that the riffs sound very Melvinsy, but each song has enough I think to overcome this. The more emotional singing style stops it being Melvins by numbers; Pig House and Electric Flower come to mind. I'll Finish You Off is a like a really moving Big Business song with a hint of Melviness and great/weird vocals. The stupid jazz joke thing is actually pretty good and then flows straight into crazy hate riffs in Inhumanity and Death. The whole album flows really well in fact.

P.G. x 3 is excelllent and I feel sorry for metalheads who can't appreciate feeling and beauty. This whole album is really life affirming, in fact. The Water Glass is FUN which leads into Evil New War God which is kind of a nihilistic heavy metal kind of thrill. Then you get Pig House which goes from ROCK to SOARING AFFIRMATION OF LIFE. Then the moving Big Business song. Then the moving but rocking Melvins songs (see: two heavy and emotional songs in a row, you need the My Sharona as a breather and contrast from the guitar sounds) which turns into awesome rock. Then into the slower moving Melvins song in whats probably the best transition of the album. Then the Jazz joke and the face melting METAL. Then the Brooding cover which turns into an awesome stoner jam. And then the folk song.

Totally buying this.

"Ok anyone not satisfied on the whole with this record...I'd like to see the critics make anything better."

That's a totally bogus line of reasoning.

No, it's not the same. I don't own a physical copy of the album nor do I have the music  files illegally stored on any digital device. Otherwise YouTube and other streaming sites would be shut down and sued out the wazoo. It's not like YouTube is some kind of underground site that hardly anyone knows about.  Nice try.

So, what do you all think about "I'll finish you off"? It's a stand out track for me, solely based on how BB influenced it seems. Not just because Jared's singing... It sounds like something that would have made it on the next BB record, if Buzz and Dale would have helped out. Does this make any fucking sense? Regardless, anyone wanna chime in on this one? :?

It sounds like BB wrote most of this album to me.  Buzz and Dale have gotten lazy. 
to me it sounds they just wrote I'll Finish you Off,the rest is pure Buzziness

Spin "reviews" The Bride Screamed Murder.

By Christopher R. Weingarten

(3.5 out of 5 Stars)
These expressionist metal muckos have always jammed a little bubblegum in their bristles, dating back to the punked-out Cars and Kiss covers of their earliest days. But King Buzzo, et al.'s 19th studio album is downright sugary, a sludge-pop romp that mostly plays like a distortion-charred version of the Bay City Rollers or Sweet. Their double-drummer lineup is more playful as well, developing colors other than "bludgeon," while indulging in cartoonish free jazz and devilishly funky Adam Ant pummel.

That's just awful writing.  Love or hate the album I don't see how you can pull anything out of the review.  It's not even the least bit entertaining. 

Anyway, I don't know if It's been mentioned but Mark Prindle gave the album 8 out of 10 and the review is pretty funny too.

http://markprindle.com/melvinsa.htm#bride (http://markprindle.com/melvinsa.htm#bride)

"Also, I totally made up that bit about Jared coming up with all the ideas. The mastermind of the project was, of course (as always), The Christian Jesus God. The Melvins' bodies were simply a conduit through which he delivered his message of musical commandments. Thank you, Christian Jesus God, for another ass-kicking Melvins album! "

It's funny because it's true.  :lol:

After hearing the internet stream of the album

you mean you downloaded it, because that's what it technically is. from now on you can you just say you downloaded it. and yes, that is illegal where you're from.
No, it's not the same. I don't own a physical copy of the album nor do I have the music  files illegally stored on any digital device. Otherwise YouTube and other streaming sites would be shut down and sued out the wazoo. It's not like YouTube is some kind of underground site that hardly anyone knows about.  Nice try. Also I did not upload the album anywhere. So there is no theivery on my end.  

i was half-messing with you, i know you like to spar.

so instead of robbing the candy store, you let the other kids do the robbing, keeping your own hands clean. you may not own a physical copy but watching the album on youtube doesn't make you less of a thief than the next guy.

the only real thief here is the guy who leaked the album. you use technology as much as we all do, and using google isn't any less obscure than youtube. and no one's gonna sue youtube under the motto 'if you cant beat them, join them' -- something the melvins could learn a great deal from.

Well I caved and downloaded the album seeing as amazon told me I'd have to wait an extra week for dispatch.

After my first few listens it really isn't a stand out Melvins album imo. The Who cover is great, but apart from that there really isn't any real stand out tracks for me so far. Even both of the other Big Biz/Melvins records had tracks that instantly stood out as real belters. Most of the riffs on Bride even sound quite banal.

Obviously this opinion may change after a few more listens......I especially need to listen to it under the headphones without any distractions too........regardless I'm really hoping that this is the last friggin Big Biz/Melvins record.

Bring back Melvins as a 3 piece!!!!!

as far as i know those albums just say MELVINS on them...i get what yr saying and do agree somewhat.  i think it's just Jared's voice.  shit stands out too much sometimes.  even though he has his moments in the band (I'll Finish You Off, Civilized Worm), i wish he would sing less.  i wonder how much he contributes to the lyrics as well?  the lyrical style seems more BB than Melvins since they joined the band.

just to stay on the subject, the new album ROCKS!!!  Electric Flower can suck a dick though.  the intro's pretty sick, but they're shitting all over the song by the second half.

Idle's right.... after the first time I listened to it, I had literally no idea what to think of it & it went  over my head which is what the Melvins probably set out to accomplish. But I've been listening to it alot ever since I heard it, and it's definitely as good as anything else the band has put out. There's no point in comparing their pre and during BB albums, I like it how Buzz can switch things up and keep it fresh, I don't want to buy the same album over and over again.
I think we all hold the band in such a high regard that listening to a new release is overwhelming in a way.

so addictive.

Buzz said he had the idea to do some of the stuff on TBSM 10 yrs. ago.  If they would've put out an album like this 10 yrs. ago I would've stopped buying their albums 10 yrs. ago.  Wouldn't matter who was is the band.  I am glad I got to listen to it before I bought it.  ASA was good, they started to lose me with NWB.  This is not even worth it.  They will be embarrassed when they look back at this record.  My prediction:  Jared and Coady will have some "issues" that Buzz just can't deal with anymore and they'll be gone.  Then the next Melvin's record will sound like the new bass players old band did.  Sound familiar?

I wouldn't say folk are shitting on the new album? I'd say a few are voicing their opinions about it. Personally I think it's time Melvins ditched Big Business as it's getting a little tiring hearing collaboration after collaboration after collaboration Melvins/Big Biz albums instead of pure digital unadulterated FRIGGIN MELVINS albums!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I mean if they love Big Biz so much they can keep making albums with them.......but throw us a few crumbs and release Melvins albums too!!!!!!!!!!!!

And so what if some won't pay for the album??? If i'm going to buy a damn album I want to hear the friggin thing first.....if I don't like it I'm not FRIGGIN buying it. The folk that don't buy it after hearing it obviously don't like it. I personally think it's not bad due to The Who cover and a few other soundbites here and there. I could name 10 other Melvins albums that kick it's ass though in a flash.

Yeah that'll be interesting to see how well Justin remasters it.

The original recording did sound like a shark attack underwater which made it the special album it is though, so having a swanky clear sounding remaster will take something away from it imo.

please tell us more about the bigger picture! teach us, master. :-?

Just that these guys (Buzz) considers his own music to be getting better and better because it is changing and evolving. Like it's been said here before, they have never gone back. And that they have no interest in that. My statement sounded fucking ridiculous but I felt like I mirrored Juan's very appropriately.

Well...except for the whole 1983 thing....

But June 1st is so close!  Since Newbury won't be delivering  my cd on day one I feel more anxious to find out what the setlist is and how much the boxset costs.  Seriously, whoever is going to the first show better not hold out on us!

*crosses fingers for just some H.A.T. and Maggot material*

The album makes perfect sense after listening to it a few times. The harmonies are great, the guitars kick ass. The more I listen to it the more I like it.

TBSM is like a soundscape that gets better as it goes on culminating in the harmonies of P.G. X 3.

I think The Water Glass will start off the Melvins set this tour and P.G. X 3 will end it. Throw in all the other new songs, a bunch of older stuff, drawing heavily on (A)SA and NWB and it will be a rocking show.

I'm ready for San Diego now.

When all is said and done. and even though the Melvins/BB era kicks ass it dont EVER get any better than that Euro festival show with Kevin in 2003. The absolute peak of the Melv's career ascendancy. I mean, i sooooo wanna get a moded Delorean and go back in time 7 years to attend it.
Yep.  I was fortunate to see them on that amazing tour in a tiny little club in Tacoma called Hell's Kitchen.  Two feet from Kevin gyrating his way through HAT.  Nothing beats The Fool live.

After I heard it was on youtube I had to check it out... I listened to it... then downloaded it because I needed it in better quality... god damn it. so much for waiting til june. Ill buy the album for the artwork and support regardless.
but the album.... it's really seperated from that asa and nwb sound. they are way tighter this time around and really showing more experimental elements going into a deeper musical realm. the random organs in some songs give alot of personality. now that I have heard the album, the title seems very fitting.

I've avoided all TBSM related threads since it leaked, and made myself wait until tonight - the night before the AZ show - to finally take a listen.  I have to say that I got a slightly uncomfortable feeling when the album started.  It's weird, not in the usual Melvins weirdness that I've become accustomed to, but different this time.  It was as if I forgot what the Melvins were supposed to sound like, and I was listening to them for the first time again, and being slowly drawn into their awesomeness all over again.  I think it's going to take a few more listens for the album to really grow on me, for sure on certain songs (I'm not digging The Water Glass), or maybe after I see it live it'll all make sense again.  But for now I'm reliving the first time I was exposed to the band, and being further imersed in all their glory.

Hospital Up, classic.

Best pop-oriented song by them in 10 years or more
easily. Harmonies on the 'hey remember ' part are
so addictive.

goes: "giant penguins silly, tear up filthy airwaves.."

I hear bits similar in sound with NWB. The slowed down cover of My Generation hearkens to the Lysol album. PGx3 is a nod toward Honky and Pigs Of The Roman Empire. It may be the Melvins Revolution #9. 4...4...4...4...4
I'll Finish You Off is an epic power song in the Civilized Worm vein. I hear bits that reminds me of Stag, The Maggot.

I still stand by my original review but I'd like to add a few things.

After many listens later I finally hear Alice Cooper.  The end of PIg House before the "ohh a ohh" part really sounds like Halo of Flies to me and the beginning of Electric Flower sounds like Second Coming on steroids.  However, I don't think they ripped off Alice Cooper.  I just hear some influence.

Also, The jazz part at the end of Hospital Up still makes me laugh and I really do think it's a bit of a throwback to Prick.  I was listening to Prick the other day and during the song "Chief Ten Beers" I was suddenly reminded of the jazz part.  I think the jazz part was a way to weed out the fans and critics who want everything to sound like Honey Bucket the same way Prick weeded out people back in 1994.  It pissed off the Pitchfork critic so I'd say mission accomplished.   :lol:

I swear I saw a picture of the Melvins in the studio holding a a rubber chicken and I think I hear a rubber chicken on the jazz part.  Does anyone have that picture or know what I'm talking about?

I've thought, since the first time I listened to that song. That it was them 'pinching' balloons. You know, when you let the air out slowly and sort of pull/pinch the opening to controll the air coming out. When you're doing that you can kind of bend the pitch and that what it sounds like to me. Think about it next time you're listening.

Big Business still release Big Business records.

Melvins on the other hand don't still release Melvins records........they release Melvins/Big Business records.

I think the time has come for the Melvins to release Melvins records again.


well, they did. it's called The Bride Screamed Murder and it's great.

dude, they give you songs like Pig House, I'll Finish You Off and Hospital Up and you still keep bitchin about the BB guys being part of the lineup? listen to the songs instead of being prejudiced because you didn't like the BB era so far ...

people are always like "best melvins line up was with kevin". they were great with kevin on bass, but they were great before and they're great now. they just keep on moving. You don't like it - so be it. It mystifies me how fans of melvins music can be so narrow-minded. you gotta stop living in the past.

I think this is THE Epic melvins album, It's a great mix, sounds like Buzz uses his new custom guitar for most of the way through.

It's got me too exited, now all I can do is wait to catch a show!

when the melvins come out after the show, someone needs to be like "TEN-HUT" and everyone should salute!

anyway if you don't stand behind the melvins ARMY, feel free to stand in front of them!

this album is a total mutant.

I swear I saw a picture of the Melvins in the studio holding a a rubber chicken and I think I hear a rubber chicken on the jazz part.  Does anyone have that picture or know what I'm talking about?


For anyone who doubts it's a rubber chicken  :lol:

Screaming Rubber Chicken (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fc3lojct2e4#)
I thought balloons as well.
I've thought, since the first time I listened to that song. That it was them 'pinching' balloons. You know, when you let the air out slowly and sort of pull/pinch the opening to controll the air coming out. When you're doing that you can kind of bend the pitch and that what it sounds like to me. Think about it next time you're listening.

BSM has been rolling on the car stereo in Schnabs rental car all the week i sunny france, and the verdict is that this a severly good record. Not a fan of the chants and stuff, but the highlights are so strong that it doesn`t matter. And, Dale should vocal more, Inhumanity or Death is awesome, allthough it`s too short. This record will also function live VERY well.

Best track on the album, by far. It has so many twists and turns, so mean riffs, so bla-bla-bla. The track gave me goosebumps when I heard it for the first time, with my brother in law on full volume, in thre rental car in France, on the way to the grocery store.

well, it has this sort of "anit-flow" in a way, I mean It flows, but the flow somehow feels like it's been broken apart here and there.

well, It feels like a short album, and yet it's not, most of the tunes go by me in a blur.

they are cramming a lot of material into this, but you wouldn't exatly notice everything, Ie; it should grow on you.

I think they really focused on getting their vocals refined more than anything.

Title: Re: The Bride Screamed Murder
Post by: blacksanta on June 10, 2010, 05:22:24 PM
Another year, another Snivlem. I think this is a huge improvement on NwB and is at least as good as aSA. AND it cracked the pop charts at #200!

Water Glass -Opening riff is an album highlight, just a churning heavy monster, and I'm a sucker for military cadences.
Evil New War God - Epic, pretty, heavy, a new classic is born.
Pig House - I enjoy the stop-start rawk riffage alternating with the pretty melody, and the end is a total homage to Alice Cooper's Halo of Flies. The whistling/vocal part at the end....wow.

After the first three songs, all I can say is how lucky I am to be a lifelong fan of this band. This is some of the most complex music yet from these guys. It's so intricate and detailed.

I'll Finish You Off - The pop sheen hinted at with Animal and developed more fully on Nude really comes together on this. Then again, when I heard Lysol for the first time as a teenager I found it to be the most beautiful thing I have ever heard, so I'm a weirdo when it comes to matters of taste. My fiance, whose taste is decidedly not heavy, really really like this album. She kept commenting on how gorgeous the melodies were. That creepy Halloween organ wind-down with the cascading drum flutterings sounds great on the headphones. Hilarious My Sharona parody.

Electric Flower - It sounds like a retread.....but not. Its a great rock tune that sounds like a mish-mash of all the best traits of Big Melvins when they decide to go for rawk broke.

Hospital Up -  Beautiful flying music, perfect for driving fast in a convertible on a summer's day.....and the snotty vocal parts elicited a hearty chuckle from me. And then a nice free jazz parody at the end. This is one of the best songs on the record. I hope Phish doesn't hear it and ruin it like they did with Ween's Roses are Free.

Inhumanity and Death - Jesus, they make most metal sound amazingly lame don't they?

My Generation - Heavy as fuck and one of the funniest parodies of faux-punks and hipsters I've had the pleasure to snicker to. Yay for awesome covers....

PG X 3 - Old folk song. Buzz based his version off of Nick Cave's version in The Proposition (great movie, Cave wrote it and did the music). Fans will either love it or hate it. I'm actually walking down the aisle to this, but fiance and I are arguing over whether we are keeping the retarded counting at the end. Stunning stuff.

My final thoughts: I was a little skeptical before I played it. They have been recorded by Toshi since 2002 which has lead to a certain sound, and since hooking up with BB they have developed a certain style or formula which is very distinct. Since the 80's to HAT every album seemed to have a vastly different style than the one before it. Its been an interesting ride listening to the current feel develop organically over time. That said, NwB felt somewhat stale to me. The album didn't have much of a flow to it in my ears and felt like a batch of lesser tunes left off of Senile. It wasn't a bad album to me, but it didn't grab me. TBSM, by contrast, surprised me and moved me, as it sounds like Melvins are growing and experimenting with their current sound/feel/style. It's one of their best in the last decade, as good as HAT and Senile.

After looking at the artwork again I've noticed that all of the kids hat's have skulls on them.  It kind of reminds me of the singles 1-12 logo.  Maybe that's why they choose these pictures.  Or maybe I'm looking into it a little too much.

Seconded...the very first day I listened probably a dozen times...then, didn't listen for about a week and went back to it in a strong way. Since then (2 1/2 weeks ago) it has been the constant in my listening catalog. I can not get enough of Hospital Up. The sets at all the shows going on lately have been absolutely great, but I'm extremely excited for the day I will get to hear them play it live. I have a feeling it will be a real treat! The song is like a classic rock Melvins ballad, unlike Civilized Worm, but still very familiar with an extremely fresh, clean sound..dope riffs, great lyrics, heavy drumming and of course the bass line is (uh-oh) devastating..one of my all around favorite Melvins tunes for good reason..Hospital Up and The Water Glass are probably my two favorites from the album. Those two have managed to give me the chills and goosebumps on many occasions.

Title: Re: The Bride Screamed Murder
Post by: gesundheit on June 26, 2010, 03:49:25 PM
I really don't see whats the big deal. I don't mind it one bit. Of course, the jazz part holds little merit on what I consider to be the song Hospital Up. I, in fact, think that listening to a minute of jibberish is a nice "come down" to that song. Somebody spoke about tension/release and they couldn't have been more right. The Melvins did it and there is nothing you can do about it. So why the fuck is there any complaining, at all??? Especially considering the jazz/wackiness I would consider it one of my favorite Melvins 'tracks' of all time. I doesn't take anything away from it, at all.

The only time I've actually skipped that part was on a pleasant drive around town yesterday when I was basically blaring and continually repeating Hospital Up as loud as I could handle. The song would finish and within ten or so seconds I would just repeat the track from the beginning. Lots of goosebumps, almost cried a few times, lots of singing, it was good times!  :)

why do people care so much about the jazz part and my sharonation?  those aren't even really part of the songs, they're just fucking around  after a few seconds of silence at the end of a couple tracks and it only last for a few seconds.  it's kind of like saying "i would give blues for the red sun a 10/10 if it wasn't for that stupid filler track yeah, so it only gets 9/10.  that's no way to end an album".

i agree with gesu about it doesn't take anything away from the tracks.

i liked the album as soon as i first heard it, but with each listen, i find it gets better and better.  and, much like ASA and NWB, after seeing the songs played live, they get that much better.  i couldn't get into "the water glass" at first, until i saw it live...  then it all made sense for me. 

then again, i can't think of any melvins release i haven't liked...

(a) Senile Animal I find to be a more straight-up riffage type beast.
Nude With Boots is the more rock'n'roll, fuck everything type madness.
And The Bride Screamed Murder is just like.. fuck. It's the pitchfork that caught (a)SA/NWB on a good day.

also, does anyone else get a 'Jesus Christ Pose' vibe out of the 1:04 - 1:44 part on Inhumanity and Death,
and then a Honky vibe from the 2:00 til the end point?

Not sure about the JCP comparison...

As soon as I heard the second part of Inhumanity and Death I was immediately reminded of the second part of Mombius Hibachi.

actually I got that too, and for that matter the last three albums ALL have riffs that sound like different era's come back, like the most obvious one it the bass line from Crybaby's 12 minute death mach turned up in senile animal, my theory is jared and coady probably were like "yeah, buzz..remember the riff in THAT song? it's awesome! we should splice it in with this other older sounding melvins riff!"  well some of it's a little modified but I'll be damned to name everything right off the top of my head.

I dunno, they did that a couple of times where they mixed two older sounding riffs together, or back to back and it REALLY worked out great!

some of it is more subltle and may be more reflecting buzz's style more than anything...but out on a limb there's a handfull of things to the notice.

next time I go through all those albums I'll try and compile the "re-issue" riffs, an post it up one of these days.

The next album will be entirely free jazz with Jared scat singing. The Melvins are just preparing you is all. They will cover the jazz standard "It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing".


i heard the new album in my dream this morning
it sounded like a lounge jazz version of gluey porch treatments

I want to be yet another one to extol the virtues of "I'll Finish You Off," which I think is up there with "The Fool, the Meddling Idiot" among melvins epic sludgefests. It's drone metal with a choir of Rob Halford clones harmonizing in a wind tunnel -- tremendous, relentless, withering.

Overall, two months later, this album gets more and more spins each day. I like what Sweet said: It's like relearning to like the melvins. It's challenging and catchy at the same time. It's arena math-metal for stoners. It's also the closest I'll ever get to my dream of an all-Who-covers melvins album, and I'm not just talking about "My Generation." The songs have an off-kilter sort of falling-down-the-stairs-in-fits-and-starts flow to them that reminds me of The Who, ca. 1966.

I agree about Adam and the Ants.  The minute melvins got two drummers I instantly thought Adam and the Ants but now some songs on this album actually sound like they were influenced by kings of the wild frontier.  I don't mind adam and the ants they have some great tunes and some woefully shit ones but adam is an interesting character and his autobiography is worth a read.

Everybody know that every new Melvins release it's something new and special in a different way with a twist. Long wait was like a torture, especially when everybody on this board discuss various aspects of album, and this interviewers guys talking about military cadences and Water Glass. 26 of july cd finally arrives, and I start Discover it very much. Listening to it many times I realised how amazing it is.

Everything: Unusual songs structure, military cadence, evil organ from Transylvania, dual drums, a lot of percussion, surf guitar, vocal harmonies, whistle and chant, little funny things, voice distortion, free jazz stuff with Dale's vocal, and of course that My Generation song that Dale wrote was awesome.

I like it as a fan. Can't wait to see them live... They have it, we want it, let's get it :)

I can't seem to form an opinion yet. It took me a year to finally appreciate NWB, which is definitely one of my favs so I'm guessing this will be the same. Some great moments, most of which seem to change drastically as soon as they begin. I think I need to improve my 'handle' on it in order to get the full effect. That's okay though, I like a challenge when it comes to music and Melvins never fail to in that sense.

Probably just a fan interpretation. So far I know only one album that is confirmed to have a story go along with it - The Bulls & The Bees, which is about "animal royalty... just before the slaughter". Nothing else has been confirmed, and in a recent interview Buzz even said he doesn't even remember which order the songs were in on the older albums.

Yeah, I thought it was a big drop off from (A)SA and NWB at the time it came out. But once I put the heavy stuff like Electric Flower on a tape with the first two albums, I could see that the whole band had evolved a lot in ways I couldn't detect before. Probably helped that I had heard Freak Puke and Tres Cabrones at that point.
