Title: Favourite Melvins monster-song
Post by: Erikkerik on March 22, 2007, 05:54:30 PM
The dialectic respons to Schnabels short Melvins-tunes thread.

Less (and probably more predictable) choices:

Favourite Melvins song of 10 minutes or more.



Anti vermin seed

From the opening drums of aVast Flthy Prison and then the guitar I love this song. This was not always the case.

The vocals seemed out of tune and I thought it was lyrically challanged when I first heard it. I loved all of (A)SA and thought: the songs you don't like by the Melvins the first time through turn out to be your favorites.

At 5:52 the ending drum beat by Dale, awesome, then the slow soundscape, just the right amount of pure digital silence to start back at the beginning of (A)SA, the Talking Horse.

a profound statement.   all the best songs take about 5 or 6 listens to really grasp where they are coming from. 
this is some of the magic of the MELVINS and their "cult" following (thats us).   MELVINS are not for the common ear.
I think they understand that just as well as we do.

see how pretty, see how smart. hands down.

The song just keeps building and building and then finally just fucking rips your face off. No matter how often I listen to this song I'm always surprised by the end. You never know when it's coming. "oh here it comes... wait no... now... no..."

Hag Me is like that for me too, I can't use it 'cause its under 10 mintues, but every time I hear that intro, I can never tell when the song is going to start.  Every time I think it is, I'm early or late in guessing.

Brilliant.

if it counts, lysol as a whole is a close second.

I fucking love that album, and to hear it may be played in its entirety live well...

Ive already seen the four peice ballad of dwight fry, and heard the biz soundcheck to sacrifice,

So its gonan be boner popping material when that shit surfaces.

Post by: CaptainPungent on May 02, 2007, 10:06:40 AM
yeah, yesterday i put in lysol while i drove to unc to help my sis move out for my pop
he loved the fucking album, he was headbanging when it got right to dale doing that straight rhythm on the toms and snare on hung bunny.  always awesome to see someone enjoying it as much as you, makes the song that much sweeter.

I don't think lysol can be counted as one song.

One track (CD), yes. One song, nope.

Pigs of the Roman Empire for me. I love when the riff kicks in towards the end. Fuck me...really good song.
