Tribute album-We Reach: The Music of the Melvins
« on: August 29, 2013, 04:44:40 AM »
Just wondering what peeps here think of this tribute album from a few years ago, 'We Reach: The Music of the Melvins'?

The liner notes are done by Ipecac's Greg Werckman and it was released on Fractured Transmitter which if memory serves was/is a label started up by a guy from Mushroomhead.

Track listing:

Mare-Nightgoat
The Dillinger Escape Plan-Honey Bucket
Mastodon-The Bit
Strapping Young Lad-Zodiac
Pig Destroyer-Claude
High On Fire/Keelhaul-Oven
Meatjack-Shevil
Strapadon Factory-Joan Of Arc
Isis/Agoraphobic Nosebleed-Boris
Absentee-Revolve
Eyehategod-Easy As It Was
Dog Fashion Disco-Anaconda
Disengage-Raise A Paw
Blessing The Hogs-Hog Leg
CKY/Gnarkill-Laughing With Lucifer At Satan's Sideshow
Maritime Murder-Copache
Made Out Of Babies-Bar-X-the Rocking M
Pincer 2-Echohead/Don't Piece Me

Been a long time since I listened to it and only just remembered I still had this CD so looking forward to giving it a listen again.

i think Eyehategod did a great job,you can tell these guys know how to cover a Melvins song without transforming it in a generic metal song

I really liked the Mastodon, SYL, Isis/AN, Dog Fashion Disco, Blessing The Hogs, Made Out Of Babies covers but thought Absentee's was the best.
