I'm in the same boat as Uncle Fester.  I have a guitar/amp and can play decently (enough to cover certain Melvins songs at least) and achieve a good enough quality recording, but don't know anybody that plays bass or drums or even anybody who has a bass or drumkit.

Anybody that plays music around here just does crappy Misfits covers.

Anyone notice the similarities between Dies Iraea and the Theme song for the Movie "The Shinning". Sounds like a cover.
It's a cover of Hector Berlioz's rendition of Dies Irae.  So yeah, I guess King Buzzo was watching The Shining one too many times during the recording process :o

i think it sounds just fine.

just like the 'lo fi' sounding parts in pink bat, it fits the song and you should love it.
Yeah, Real Fucking Nasty (or The Savage Hippy as is it now) fits perfectly at the quality it's at.  That's why it's real fucking nasty.

I can't see how there could be such a massive difference of recording quality on the same album between the songs.
Maybe you got a bad copy?

All of the songs sound the same to me in terms of quality, except The Savage Hippy of course.

Unless that's the only song you meant had a massive difference of recording quality.

I like Jared in general more than any of the other bassists, but as for what I think fits best with the Melvins sound, I'd have to say Kevin and Mark.

Hopefully Jared will put out a few more great records with them and prove me wrong.  :D

Please, don't forget The Bootlicker. What would The Bootlicker be without the bass.
I agree COMPLETELY.  One of my favorite basslines ever is Jew Boy Flower Head.  It will blow your head off in a car with a good system and big subs.

His bassline in Missing (originally a Cows song, covered for Electroretard) is also pretty damn epic.

I love how Jared and Buzz seem to share vocal duties on a lot of the songs.  One verse Buzz, one verse Jared, the chorus throws in the whole band sometimes.

Great stuff.

Jared's vocals at the end of Billy Fish where there were originally no vocals is probably my favorite part of the whole album.  He changes it up COMPLETELY while the song continues and it just grooves so damn well.

so... anybody wanna actually describe the album? instead of just saying its awesome.
I dunno about anybody else, but describing Melvins albums is pretty hard for me.

I can't really get anything past "it's awesome."

Just downloaded this.   So far its great and a bit different than what I expected but thats a good thing.  I will be buying this when it comes out and hopefully see them on tour for this record


Buying the record is more like pitching in to buy the food that feeds the cow that producess the sweet, sweet, milk.

Unless you're planning on sending Buzzo a $200,000 check, I doubt you'll have a chance to buy the cow itself.

Quote from: Like Stee on April 12, 2008, 12:51:47 PMI have a hunch that the advance copies that this leak originates from might not be mastered.  Has anyone else noticed how quiet it is compared to other records?  In any case I'll be buying it the day it comes out, from my local record shop and immediately making a fresh rip straight from the CD.
That's not a result of no mastering, that's a result of good mastering.  The CD is mastered, otherwise it would be even quieter.  The mistake (an honest one, usually) most people make when mastering albums is submitting to the idea that "louder is better", even though this usually results in a good amount of dynamic compression, meaning there is less difference between the loud and quiet sounds in the album, resulting in a distorted and muddy feeling that can either be an unwanted or a desired effect.  Nude With Boots seems to be mastered to the point where none of the sounds reach the point of being distorted and muddy, but it's still dynamically compressed in the way that most digitally recorded records are nowadays to make them seem "louder" and less "dull" to some people.

While I prefer very little dynamic compression (Bullhead is a good example of very good mastering... listen to the drums on Boris and you will hear a distinguished punch that is missing from more recent albums simply because dynamic compression is so widespread and common nowadays), Nude With Boots and none of the recent Melvins albums have been plagued with anything terribly bad in terms of bad effects from the "loudness wars."

Quote from: glen on April 12, 2008, 11:06:26 AMas far as leaking.   to some extent I see the thought process.  like FART says.    it finds its way here to the most intense of fans who are more likely to dish out praises and spread the word.     a marketing scheme on some level.

see?  i can be an open minded team player.

The internet music revolution has been a huge benefit to independent record labels.  The only reason music revenues have dropped is because only the big 4 and it's subsidiaries really report sales to the RIAA.  Sales to the big 4 record companies have gone down because people on the internet purposely avoid buying music associated with the RIAA, or spend their money on great bands on great independent labels that they discovered by ILLEGALLY DOWNLOADING.  It's not as if the music industry is being held up by the ignorant/dedicated who either don't know how to download music or are blatantly opposed to it.  People are more than happy to support the creators, but most major label artists get advances from the record companies anyway, with the profit of sales going to the label (while the artist is paying for everything that creates the product using the money from the advance!).

That said, I buy new releases from bands I like, and everything I can from bands I love.

How do I find the album cover on the Ipecac website? How do I browse there?

It takes a while to load, and has hi-res images of every album released on Ipecac and of their artists.

Also, the font seems to be recycled from the Colossus of Destiny album cover.

I just don't see why someone wants a shit quality recording which is what 100% of leaks are.
Most leaks are CD rips, and sound exactly the same as the finished product unless they are leaked before the mastering or recording process is finished.

It's not like somebody got a directional microphone and pointed it into the studio while they were playing the songs.  :lol:

I really don't want to get into it,  maybe that was the case years ago, but I doubt there will be any difference in distinguishable audio quality between the CD you'd buy at a store and the MP3s floating around the internet at this point in time.

And if there is, it's because the person who ripped it used a crappy encoder and a low bitrate.  If they had ripped it to a lossless FLAC file or a higher-quality (V0) MP3 using LAME, there'd be no distinguishing the sound at all.

Seeing Pink Bat live would give me four erections.
