Colossus of Destiny question
« on: August 13, 2009, 02:32:34 PM »
I have read several reviews for this album that state this was released by Melvins as a joke Just wondering if this was true. I love the album no matter what, I was just curious. Either way, I think it was a brilliant idea to play a "noise/experimental" show and then release it as a live albun.
What would a woman that fine want in a big, fat, nasty, greasy, fat, stank, bloated, cheesy-backed, 12-sandwich-eatin' bastard?

i don't think it was a joke and the fact Buzz considers COD as one of his favourite Melvins albums proves that.

thanks. glad to finally understand. I like to play that album when I want people to get the hell out of my apartment. Plus I enjoy the looks they give me when they hear it

Nice to meet you too. Not really sure which one I prefer, I like them both equally I guess.  COD gets more play time than Prick but that is about it.

I donno ... Eye Flys ... it's brutal sure ... but more than simply that ... IMO it gains alot of its' charm also that it is birthed from the 50 min malestorm that preceeds it ... perfect flow ... it just works ... kinda like the 2x4 shows w/ DSS noise intros ... or the bass intro to Manky ...
It was a big night out on the town for the Id and the Reptile Brain ...

Even if you don't like the album the artwork is great.  I think there are plenty of used copies on amazon.
