Title: New Double Album: A Walk With Love and Death
Post by: blewis on April 06, 2017, 10:22:07 AM
Announcing our new, double album, a first in Melvins history:
A Walk With Love and Death, out July 7 via Ipecac Recordings

Not only new music, but also short film of the same title directed by
Jesse Nieminen, watch there trailer below!

Buzz, Dale and Steve bring forth Death, a proper Melvins’ release and Love,
the score to the Jesse Nieminen directed, self-produced short also titled
A Walk With Love and Death. A release date for the short has not been
announced yet.

Buzz: “This was a huge undertaking. All three things: the album, the
soundtrack and the film are benchmarks for us.”

Dale: “A Walk With Love and Death is one giant, dark, moody, psychotic
head trip! Not for the faint of heart. You'll sleep with the lights on after listening.”

Guests include: Joey Santiago (The Pixies), Teri Gender Bender
(Le Butcherettes/Crystal Fairy) and Anna Waronker (That Dog).

A North American tour is in the works for this Summer with dates
to be announced soon.

A Walk With Love and Death pre-orders will launch soon, with
the collection available as a double-CD, on vinyl and digitally.

I couldn't watch the video properly because I have a very shitty internet connection here (and this laptop is a piece of shit, too), I'll watch it as soon as I get home. By the way, I just could see a few images of the video but it seems to be very "Seawhores(ish)" in its aesthetic.

hey the ether bunny, that was fast, thank you!

So they included "Euthanasia" as well... assuming it's the well known cover song and not a new one.

I'm willing to bet the vinyl version has some disc 1 songs on side A and disc 2 songs on side B.  :lol:

But jokes aside I'm really excited about this album and if there's a band that can pull off a solid double album without the obvious "they could have cut a few tracks" it's gonna be The Melvins. I second the comment of EUTHANASIA!!!

EDIT: I also noticed "and other delights" a few seconds in from the Herb Alpert Whipped Cream album as well. If that teaser video is any indicator of the short film we're in for a trip.

Holy shit. I felt so sick today I had to go home from work and couldn't even enjoy it, but this is a real pick-me-up.

I got a chuckle out of seeing them advertise a guest spot by the lady from That Dog though. They're one of those "oh yeah, I saw them in an old Beavis & Butt-Head and absolutely nowhere else ever" bands for me and I didn't realize anyone had even heard of them. Her being married to Steve makes sense though.

Yeah POTRE certainly walked onto that path tho it was tempered and anchored by song structure ... COD was just so full out; love that release ... love POTRE too tho. Seeing as it's a twofer it'd be cool if one was just too full out warped. Guess we'll see.

Yeah, I'm pretty much expecting a more straightforward metal disc paired with some awesome noisy creepy ambient-noise on disc 2 that goes kinda like early industrial. Hopefully Buzz's love of Throbbing Gristle will come out here.

So I got a copy the other day and I have been listening to it the last couple days.
The soundtracky disc is weird fun and silly.
The "songs" disc is really good. Starts of with two moody slow burners before launching into the ultimate version of "Euthanasia", finally making it onto an album decades afterwards.
The rest of the record is good. It sounds exactly like what these three guys would do together on a full album. And there is some cool groovy seventies rock influence. I mean that in a good way.
The bass playing throughout is really good.
And it really grows on you.
Keep an ear out for the song "Christ Hammer".
I think the kids will like it.

Post by: DToxico on May 05, 2017, 01:27:09 PM
Maybe it's because I've been listening to a whole lot of power electronics lately but I heard "Porg" for the first time in years and loved it more than ever before (and I've always thought it was cool). Honestly kind of forgot it existed until putting on the Buzz EP on kind of a whim today. Made me even more excited for this record; This is the kind of thing I'm hoping there will be at least a little of on disc 2. Maybe like a combination of this and the styles COD and parts of PotRE are in?

and the #1 in my book,
The Fool, The Meddling Idiot.

I feel the same about the song, so far I'm not impressed and the artwork is quite meh... I was expecting something more like this:

(https://d1wtzzt4oxg683.cloudfront.net/images/covers/large/225/162225.jpg)

Agreed, the artwork is rather disappointing, it seems almost identical to Basses Loaded.
Literally the same color scheme, and once again a skull on an "almost plain" background.
Napalm Banana split cover on the other hand I think is some of Mackie's finest work and makes me want to buy the record if only to look at it.
Then again the Basses Loaded color scheme was changed the last second before release, maybe it'll be the same for this one. I hope so.

The song is totally the opposite of what I was expecting.
I love them being unpredictable.
Although the vocal melodies in the song are very, very typical Buzz.
Could this be the mellowest song on the album? Hmm...  :-k

The revealed artwork could be just the outer sleeve.  The underlying print on the skull might suggest something like what we saw on a recent bundle offering (with the recycled vinyl collages)?  I am really excited for the entire audiovisual experience. 

Small thing I also find cool is the return to the maggot-bootlicker-crybaby font styling of "melvins".

It's very 90s/grunge with a hint of pop to it. That said I dig it though I liked Christ Hammer as well.

I'm more curious to hear something from the "Love" disc at this point.

I guess at the veast they aren't repeating themselves, they're just going through a classic rock phase the last few years. Lynch and Ridley Scott went back to their roots 20/30 years later, maybe melvs might do this one day.  :lol:

"Speaking about processed sounds, the "Love" disc of the upcoming Melvins record, A Walk With Love and Death, is the first noise release you guys have done in 15 years.


Yeah, one disc is all songs, as much as you can call them songs, and the second one is definitely way more experimental. Like a soundtrack, which'll have a movie that goes along with the soundtrack rather than a soundtrack that goes along with the movie."

I think the opposite might be true.  Recent fans from the past five to ten years seem to love the poppier sounding Melvins.  If you'd said "older fans aren't looking for accessibility", I'd probably agree with you.

I've heard the album.

The noise LP is just that. Much of it is just ambient sound (recordings of people talking or kids playing in the background) mixed with guitar freakouts and sci-fi noises. It's, sadly, almost totally pointless. "Give it to Me" is a 60's-style rave-up that's okay, because it's a band playing music, at least. The whole disc sounds like something the band could've farted out in an afternoon. What's the point of even doing this? "Prick" at least had "Larry."

The "rock" disc is...okay. Sadly, the ancient outtake "Euthanasia" is the best, heaviest tune. "Flaming Creature" is up there, too. First two tracks are moody numbers. A lot of it is kinda clean-tone, half-cocked stuff that just doesn't do it for me. It's just verse, verse, verse, out. These songs don't really go anywhere.

Your mileage may vary. I've felt like these guys are impressive for never becoming a bad band, ever, but I've also felt -- and this album really exemplifies this -- that they're coasting, and have been for some time. The Melvins used to blow my fucking mind every time around. Now, they land a couple punches here and there, but it's all very ephemeral.

Steve's bass playing is phenomenal, though. What a killer musician. Best player since Mark D.

This all sounds fair and accurate. I'm hoping that Melvins eventually have a late career kaboom where they release some mindblowers. But I am glad they are still at it and continue to rock harder than most contemporaries.

I think that's a fair statement that I agree with. IMO they've fallen into a bit of a trap of churning out album after album perhaps to keep getting tour offers from promoters rather than genuinely waiting until they have enough quality material, that's okay their choice they wouldn't make much off album sales they need to keep constantly touring.

However, the danger is the fans start losing interest with every sub par release I don't think it's coincidence that during this time their songs have for the most part become more straight ahead and accessible and Buzz keeps going with that clean mediocre guitar tone.

To me the rot started to set in with the last BB album TBSM and it's been slim pickings ever since. I loved the Bulls & Bees EP as it felt like genuinely creative material to me it doesn't even sound like modern day Melvins. But one thing that Three Men & A Baby album did for me last year was make me nostalgic for the old heavier crunchier Melvins.

Surprised to see people other than parenthesis-guy complaining about this one. Still really looking forward to it if only because I feel like I'm going to get more out of the ambient/industrial/noise half than a lot of people here are. People going "what's the point" must not be aware of Throbbing Gristle, their genre, and/or Buzz' fanboy status.

Are they really releasing stuff with more frequency than before? Other than the gap when Rutmanis fucked them, it seems like it's always been this way. But I do agree that they do seem to be doing some relatively samey stuff lately going for that younger audience and tour opportunities, and like others I wish Buzz would at least change his guitar tone.

really well put.
and i totally expect the band to turn around eventually and start writing more creative and experimental music again. i think it's inevitable that any creative person/group will run into a period of less inspiration that they will have to manage to get through with not too much harm done.... bowie comes to mind, or iggy, or neil young.

at least with melvins (as with neil young or iggy!) they were always and still are an incredible live band. i've yet to see a bad melvins show, and i must have seen a few dozen.

Glancing through the stream now. Right off the bat "Cardboro Negro" reminds me a lot of "Foaming" and I agree on the Bootlicker vibes for the opening, an overall more poppy outing compared to earlier works.

Well we finally got Prick 2 with the "Love" disc and what better way to sneak it in as a second disc to an album. I do dig "Scooba" to bits, though!

Buying it today if I can find it at the local shops and curious at least.

Done with the first side for now. Not bad at all, I have to admit. Though it doesn't sound too far removed from their other recent releases, I dig the song structures a lot. Also cool to get Euthanasia finally on a proper album release, love the atmospheric background guitar noises in it at the middle break.

Does anyone else think that Buzz sounds better these days when he's singing in a more clear style w/ less shouting as in Sober-delic or in Edgar the Elephant? Reminds me of the Stoner Witch / Stag as well as the Bootlicker days, as has been noted before.

Digging the second disc much more to be honest. Prick 2? Hehe. The Death disc unfortunately I felt kinda played it too safe. I'm not into the classic / early psych rock vibes so that's another bummer for me (sorry, Steven). And unfortunately I noticed some melodies almost repeating the other tunes, even within the same album - too obviously not to be bothered. Frankly, I'm hoping that the next bassist will make a major stir in the Melvs' sound.

UPD: On second listen, Black Hearth's sound is rather unusual. I have to take a few more listens to the disc.

Got the CDs in the mail today. Fucking awesome. Death is great, didn't want it to end. Just got through Love now, quality entertainment! It reminds me more of Prick than COD, in that there is a good mix of some guitar/bass/drum jams and dialog pieces, where as most of COD is more like soundscapes of electronic bleeps & blips. Artwork is beautiful. Time to order up the vinyl now.

 Some of you people are nuts, or should just move on, critiquing this for the usual reasons - "where's H.A.T. or Maggot pt 2?", "When's Buzz gonna go back and clone his exact guitar tone from 1991?" :lol: On first listen I don't think this is a re-tread or "on auto-pilot" mission at all. It's pure Melvins and doesn't sound like the last Melvins album or the one before that.
I really hope Buzz/Dale do not read the reviews here, if so they must not think much of this place. :facepalm:

That's Steven on What's Wrong With You, right? Have to say the song grew on me, sounds pretty much like a combination of Melvins and Red Kross. I guess that's what they were going for with this song, so it's a success.

I'm now done with the first half of the "Love" side. Whew, it's fucking awesome! At least for longtime Melvins listeners. It's a stark contrast to the first side of the album and shows the Melvins from their more experimental side. It's basically a Prick Two (maybe even better than Prick, even though it doesn't have a Larry), and while this might not be everyone's cup of tea, I enjoy it a lot. It shows the more abrasive / free-spirited side of the Melvins again that didn't come out that much on their last few albums.

Love sounds nothing like prick or cod. Sounds like really cool incidental soundtrack music by people who love and respect old movies...like forbidden planet etc. Not nearly as 'hard' as i thought it would be. Its lumpy gravy 2017.

Death is wonderful. Im an emotional listener, i uglycried to soberdelic stone sober on my way back to work after picking up the album on lunchbreak. Sue me. While i have enjoyed all the albums to varying degrees, i am very critical. I take every release as being the most current view of what is going on in buzz and dale's heads. I dont feel like ive swallowed any kool aid by enjoying on some level each new album. I dont and have never liked everything, but i have always felt WOW at some point on every release. How lucky i am to be a fan of this band. Even if i dont dig pieces of it ... doesnt matter. NO ONE SOUNDS LIKE THEM. And its that uniqueness that makes those WOW moments hit so hard, and makes me shed a tear when they are really good.

I agree, listened to it last night and some of the riffs are too similar to other songs like the second part of "Suicide in Progress", "Dog Island" or "Sesame Street Meat", just to name a few. The soundtrack was not as strange as I thought it would be, I was expecting something like Throbbing Gristle or Merzbow but there are a lot of melodies in it, specially in tracks like "Give It To Me" and "Scooba".

"Queen Powder Party", "Black Heath", "Scooba" and "Flaming Creature" are my favorite ones so far.

Giving this a serious listen and main thoughts in mind:

- In terms of visual aesthetic this is one of the finest releases the band has ever put out. Both digipaks and the design are utterly phenomenal. Mackie knocked this one right out the park!

- Agree 100% with Black Santa on Soberdelic (acid only) as a standout, musically to me a mix of Dwight Fry and Suicide in Progress but lyrically it's really strong, maybe one of the strongest songs they've done. Even now when Melvins pull out some memorable songs they really become unforgettable.

- Euthanasia in re-release form is good. Wishful thinking at best but to see a proper recording of Rabbit's Revenge would be lovely one day.

- The second half from track five on up on Death is where it kinda blurs together for me though Edgar has some solid guitar work. Flaming Creature kind of resembles City Dump at times and Cardboa Negro definitely made me think Foaming but if you've got this much output you're going to hit some similar sounding tunes at one point. Every band is guilty of that, some cases far less endearing than The Melvins.

- A buddy of mine heard it and felt "Death may well be lighter than Melvins Lite". I don't disagree but I don't mind Melvins getting a bit poppier either as I can dig into poppy stuff personally. Plus it's nice to have a Melvins album without a bunch of bloopy noise tacked on at the end for the sake of length. That said...

- A friend of mine who does experimental/noise music for a long time said once to me "Good experimental goes wherever it wants but is ultimately heading on a path, building towards something while some people go avant-garde, sonically shit in a bowl and call it art.". It's an assessment that stuck with me and something I keep in mind going into "noise" records. In the case of Love it feels like a bit of both but leans towards the former on serious listen though there's some definite shit in there! Some of it really showing creativity and going into good weird places (Eat Yourself Out, Halfway to The Bakersfield Mall, Park Head) while some of it does utterly fuck all for me (Street Level St. Paul, Chicken Butt, Pacoima Nornal, Track Star, The Asshole Bastard).

- I still love Scooba to bits.

- T-burg is deceptively heavy.  I can imagine adding more "organic" instrumentals and vocals to the song based on it's structure and it being a really heavy death march kind of song, like heavier than the entire Death disc. I can see the Love disc actually growing on me quicker than the Death disc to some extent. I've heard worse experimental outings (Boris comes to mind on this thought, sadly.).

- Overall both records are pretty good but don't entirely click just yet, maybe they'll be growers with time. I'd give the overall product a 7 or 8 out of 10. I'm also glad the Melvins don't give a shit about any critics (and I can see Pitchfork and Decibel having an utter field day with this one!), do whatever they want and keep on chugging along like a train of pure heaviness.

Death tracks I like the most: Sober-delic (acid only), Euthanasia, What's Wrong With You?, Edgar The Elephant, Cardboa Negro
Love tracks I like the most: Queen Powder Party, The Hidden Joice, Eat Yourself Out, Scooba, Halfway To The Bakrsfield Mall, T-Burg

By all means, I know there will be fans that dig this. I don't. Not enough for me to shell out 20.00
for it.

A DOUBLE ALBUM that I went completely spoiler free on, I was thinking this was going to be one of the best albums they have ever did and we got this...

There are literally tons of this type of stuff out there from rank amateur bedroom musicians to names you may recognize.

You can't say that however about what the Melvins' "proper music" that we as fans are more accustomed to.

And I know their attitude toward constructive criticism and criticism in general. I don't care about that. I'm disappointed in it. Euthanasia is about the only track on it I like because it never had gotten a proper release like this and the song is awesome.

Listened last night and then again this morning.

The 'Death' disc is good, but not as good as I was hoping. Not anything bad on here or anything but a lot of it kind of blurs together and, like other people have said, plays it kind of safe. Will probably like it more after a few more listens but so far the only ones on here that really grab me are "Black Health" and of course "Euthanasia".

The 'Love' disc, however, was fantastic from start to finish. I have to raise an eyebrow at the intensely negative response I keep seeing for it, because I'm pretty used to hearing Melvins fans crowing almost constantly about how much more evolved and esoteric and 'weird' their music tastes are compared to all the 'normies' and 'plebs' they know, because I think it's the most daring and interesting thing they've done in a while. Reminds me absolutely nothing of Prick because this clearly had a lot more effort and love (pun not intended) put into it. Some parts of it make me think of Throbbing Gristle or SPK or Foetus, but more than anything, a lot of it made me think of Swans' "Soundtracks For the Blind", which makes me a happy camper. Been waiting a while to hear the Melvins do something like this, I knew they had it in them.

The only lens of objectivity I can put on about the "experimental" tracks is that aren't they supposed to be a soundtrack/score to a movie? If that's the case, I can understand and be less critical of it from a proper album standpoint.

"Death" is more consistent than their past couple of albums, i'll give it that. i don't like it anywhere near as much as Freak Puke (still the last great one they've put out to date) but it's also the best one since then. i really like "Sober-delic" and "What's Wrong with You?" and it's nice to see Euthanasia on a proper album.

"Love" is interesting but more a curiosity than a proper album. I would imagine it goes well with the supposed film that it's the soundtrack too but maybe the movie itself is even worse. can't really say much else about it after hearing it once (and i probably won't listen to it again until i actually pick up a copy of the album)

The Northwest Film Forum in Seattle will show movies without the sound and have a band sit in to play a musical interpretation of the film.

I attended the THX138 screening and really enjoyed it. My wife fell asleep. Neither one of us had viewed the film proper so I bought a directors cut edition. One of the special audio features of the edition is a musical interpretation of the film with no dialog.


http://www.themelvins.net/8-melvins-news/56-melvins-w-cameron-jamie-films-in-the-netherlands

This is not new to the Melvins. Can't believe the Cameron Jamie shows were in the beginning of 2008, Jesus.

Can't wait to see the movie with Love playing.

Something else I've forgotten to mention, I really like Steve's bass work on the Death disc.
Title: Re: New Double Album: A Walk With Love and Death
Post by: immoraliste on July 10, 2017, 10:52:01 AM
Some thoughts about this one :

My primary mode of listening to music nowadays is while walking my dog. I've spun the album a number of times since Friday and I love it.

The more traditional release (not sure which is which since there seems to be an printing error, wtv) didn't sound much like I expected it too. It has a Stag and Bootlicker vibe to it which I thoroughly enjoy. I'll admit I expected a heavier album, but I still love it. Steve's dirty fingers are all over this one, he covers so much ground with his bass style that it opens the door for Buzz to play a more virtuoso or noodling style and rely less on crushing riffs. There's a song where Steve and Buzz go back and forth playing the same riff, there's kind of a interplay there which really tickles my fancy.

On the other hand, I fully expected not to like the film soundtrack, expecting to struggle through it once and never listen to it again. That's not what happened, by the time the first track off the soundtrack starts I'm locked in. I'm into it, I dig it, I definitely feel there's a meter and flow to it, like Buzz says and I feel it pairs nicely with the first album. I also feel, however, that I've matured as a listener over the years and am better equipped to listen to an album like this now than many years ago when I couldn't make much sense of albums like Prick and COD.

I also thought it was interesting how the film soundtrack comes after the more proper release rather than before like on COD. COD felt like a noise build up to a crushing rendition of Eye Flys. Whereas this one feels like a build up to a crushing payoff that never really comes. I'm probably putting way too much thought into this, though.

With regards to the criticism :

I get that people long for the earlier days of heavy melvins albums, but those days are gone. Go back and listen to the back catalogue. It's not gone, it's not erased. It still holds up and is still fresher than a lot of what is considered "heavy" music nowadays.

I don't, however, get how anyone can say this album is safe. The songs on the "proper" release aren't safe, they don't phone it in and they don't incorporate traditional song structures. I'm not sure what is being referred to as "safe"specifically.

To me the Melvins are a lot like Zappa. There many different eras, different bands, different styles, etc. There's stuff for everyone. Are their periods, bands or styles of these artists I prefer over others? sure, but I still enjoy all of it.

TL ; DR This new release is fantastic and the crybabies should go listen to their favourite melvins albums and just quit being a bunch of whiny bitches.

Post by: blacksanta on July 10, 2017, 02:30:01 PM
I've noticed that everyone considers Love the second disc but I think it's first based on the catalog numbers on the spines (Love is 1, Death is 2).

I can't speak for anyone else, but when I say 'safe' I guess I just mean more or less sticking to the sound they've had for a while. I can't even really consider it a criticism though, because I do have the entire second disc. I bet you could mix the two together with the second disc's songs being like interludes, obviously wouldn't fit on one disc but it'd be a great Stag sort of vibe.

Agree with your whole post though, and think the Zappa comparison is pretty good.
Title: Re: New Double Album: A Walk With Love and Death
Post by: amazonAMAZON on July 10, 2017, 05:04:18 PM
Here's where I'm at with this record: I can't stop listening to Death.

First response was perhaps underwhelmed. I think I was expecting something more doomy from the title, but maybe that's part of the trick. Some of my favorite parts so far are reminiscent of the Bootlicker.

I do experience some listening fatigue from the mix which is consistent with pretty much everything from Bride Screamed Murder onwards. I, too, would like to see the guys switch up something in the recording process. I really do miss the supreme mix and mastering of Stoner Witch. But that's a minor wish.

LOVE is going to get repeats. If I judge it against Prick, COD, Chicken Switch, POTRE or the experimental sides of Buzz/Dale/Joe it's already on the top half of that stack. I argue that it feels crafted, not "thrown together" as some suggested. Editing and sequencing alone are a daunting task and this has a very intimate feel. Who knows. I'm a gullible skeptic.

"Euthenasia" sounds better than ever. "What's Wrong With You?" is fun -- in terms of the Melvins digging faux British classic rock this runs circles around "In The Rain". The odd sound of a drum tuning up and down while being played towards the end of the record is my favorite Dale moment so far (or is that even what I'm hearing?) But in a lot of other parts I feel like Dale was told not to rock the boat. (I could have used some capsizing.)

There are Steven flourishes everywhere. Very happy with him on this release.

There appear to be coherent lyrics throughout. It almost seems thematic or perhaps sociopolitical.

Dumb question: is "Cardboa Negro" pronounced like "Turbo Negro" while implying a flimsy stand-in?

NOTE: I'm listening on spotify since my hard copy hasn't arrived yet so take any judgments about sound/mix with a grain of sphalt.

Excellent points. On the older style/songs, just look at the current setlists. They're still playing a lot of pre-Atlantic material, and as brutally as ever. A lot of bands with 25+ yr career rarely touch their early material. Melvins revisit most of it.

 Sober-delic is an awesome track, & easily the most catchy. I have a feeling this could stay in the setlist for years, much like Let It All Be was for a time. I also am thinking Sober-delic was originally from the Freak Puke sessions, or maybe I'm dead wrong. I remember a few Buzz interviews from '12 where he said they had something like 25+ songs in the can from those sessions. It definitely has that vibe, maybe with new drum tracks and new Steve bass added?. Could be others too, someone should ask Buzz.

Listening to the vinyl version now. The Love (pink vinyl) is actually Death and reverse. Am I missing something? I thought I was listening to Love even on the vinyl it says it's the Love album then Euthanasia came on. Is Live actually Death and Death actually Love?
Yep, other people are reporting this as well (Love=Death and Death=Love).

 Interesting. At the Ipecac store it clearly states that the pink vinyl is Death. So maybe just the circle label on the vinyl is wrong, or they were simply misfiled in the sleeves at the plant? Check the insignia on the runout. Each side should have etched A, B, and C, D. I would think the Love disc being "first" would have A & B etched in.
 I could care less about vinyl colors. I was sort of hoping for the option of black, especially if it knocks the price down a few bucks. Weird that with Crystal Fairy the pink color sold out real fast, and I had to settle with black. But then maybe the $38 price tag now is keeping random vinyl collectors away for awhile. Gonna order the current pink/violet set now, and should have it in a few days.

I don't think that people long for the days of old Melvins or for them to release another Bullhead but there are elements from that era that are missed imo.

While it's heresy to mention it (sorry Stallion) I do find the drums are pretty normal, in the sense of a rock band, since a while now on their recent albums. The drums are no longer playing a centre stage role which was always a staple of this band. Although, I think they're doing it on purpose now to concentrate more on vocal lines. Its curious departure. That's my only obersvation with this album after soaking it in. Apart from that it's pretty different for them and I do like it. Not my favourite though!

Of course that type of fan exists but there is something objectively stale about the last couple of years.
Not saying it's not good, just a bit of a slump. I think a lot of listeners would be ok with them laying out for a minute and giving a record 1-2 years to marinate.

 Death is the comfortable melvins I feel like we've been enjoying the last decade but with better vocals. Which  is nice to hear and understand full sentences out of the Kings mouth.
 Love is the deep love for the weirdness that I discovered way back with Lysol and Prick. Great to hear it again.

I'm liking the Death album more and more. It took me about 10 listens to finally appreciate each song. Euthanasia is my favorite at this point.

Yes, I can't seem to get Flaming Creature out of my head the last few days. After some spins, I pretty much love the whole album. For me, this might be their strongest effort since Nude With Boots overall.

As mentioned, they will be available tomorrow at noon @ http://utechrecords.com/

Too spendy, but I like the new album too much to skip this. Got one.
I mean, who in their right mind spends $60 on a cassette, or two? And I don't usually even buy cheap cassettes. But I don't care, it's at least a lot cheaper than a clown 7" on eBay.

Another banger, this time I'm getting a whiff of contemplative, almost somber Melvins in moments. Almost. Re-ranked for me I'd go:

Black Heath
Edgar the Elephant
Flaming Creature
Christ Hammer
Sober-Delic (acid only)
Euthanasia
Cardboa Negro
Cactus Party
What's wrong with you?

I'm Just checking out some of these Tracks off youtube for the first time Aw It's GREAT!!! I'm really enjoying these tunes!

I'm really happy about these new Tracks, they are excellent!!!

This is my Transcribing of Chicken butt, Let me know how close I am getting, some lines are tricky with Buzz using weird cut-up random Verbs all the time

you close your eyes and count to ten
weekend time not noticing again
sometimes the world doesn't seem so strange
Little germs running all around the room
but I didn't think those things would live too long
we were warned to keep away
I'm gettin tired of yellin till I fall alone
that hen dog rooster workin' down on it's own
watch it all going down the drain
theres one thing that you can never lose
that never ending scream wont bring is fools
close your eyes and count to three
sometimes the world doesnt seem so strange
a half baked plan to take the good lords place
now its all coming back to me
It's a beautiful thing that no mystery for all to see
I count sixteen but you can't count to three
watch it all going down the drain
we were warned to try to keep ourselves away
a half baked plan the good lords place
close one eye and count to three

I haven't listened to it many times either. I got my CD pre-order just over a week ago, the cassette less than a week ago, and the regular 2LP has not been dispatched yet. I don't want to listen to entire albums from YouTube or wherever in inferior quality, unless I'm very doubtful of some band/album.

He played on 'Christ Hammer' at least. Buzz said so in an interview. Probably some other tracks too i guess.

Anna Waronker appears on 'What's Wrong With You?' - which makes sense being that Steve wrote that one.

Finally got the 2LP! I got a replacement copy from Amazon.de last Friday, because the original package never showed up. Well, the original surfaced yesterday... It had a label on it that said "Missent to Canada", dated 3rd of August. How can Canada be mistaken for Finland? Well, the climate is somewhat similar, but it's on the other side of the world. And why was it not sent here earlier, but it took two months more from that?   :disagree:

At least I finally got it!

100% agree with you Stallion. It’s music, not songs. I never understand people’s mentality when they review something, to compare what they want with what they hear. The first time I listened to Heathen Earth by Gristle, I just couldn’t get my head around it. My answer to people when they asked me was “I don’t know. But I have to go back to it.” I’m at the same point here with Love. I have listened a few times, but I still don’t hear it. Something will click at some point.

Alternative Tentacles released it on DVD in 2010 at the same time as The Widower. For me The Widower was even better! Please watch it. Shithead, Ani Kyd and Nardwuar are all in it, so it's full of mad Canadians (Virus 408).

As far as the Love & Death movie is concerned, it'll probably appear in 40 years time with the Vinnie Interview and Idle and Bob's Colossus of Destiny Special Edition. All on the same day. I'm already planning to sire a child to snag them all as I'll have probably snuffed it by the time they all come out.

I think the jist (gist?) was that the soundtracked running time of the film will be less than the runtime of the soundtrack album. I'm expecting more of a megamix for the movie. Or maybe there's some abrupt cuts.

It has the same relation to the actual movie soundtrack as a soundtrack album does to that of an actual movie in that you might only hear snippets of tracks and there might well be stuff on the soundtrack that's not on the album. Is my understanding
Title: Re: New Double Album: A Walk With Love and Death

Listening to the vinyl version now. The Love (pink vinyl) is actually Death and reverse. Am I missing something? I thought I was listening to Love even on the vinyl it says it's the Love album then Euthanasia came on. Is Love actually Death and Death actually Love?
Yep, other people are reporting this as well (Love=Death and Death=Love).
Are there two versions of this on vinyl? A 'correct' version and a love=death version? (Ignore what Discogs says)
Title: Re: New Double Album: A Walk With Love and Death
Post by: (PAUL) on August 01, 2019, 11:49:13 AM
Well the one I got is the Love soundtrack. I'll give it another listen (not sure I actually listened to side 2) but it's basically what was used for the movie so about 33 minutes of music.

The original Love & Death double LP I have is like this:

Sleeve: LOVE; Labels: LOVE; Vinyl: PINK; Matrix; IPC-195-A and B; Tracks on the LP; the DEATH songs (9 tracks)
Sleeve: DEATH; Labels: DEATH; Vinyl: PURPLE; Matrix: IPC-195-C and D; Tracks on the LP: the LOVE songs (14 tracks)

So the LOVE album has the DEATH songs on it and vice versa. My question is, is there a double-LP version with the correct songs on the correct record? All the ones I've seen (I've seen a few) are like mine. The double CD is different - the DEATH CD is in the DEATH sleeve and has the DEATH songs on it, etc.
