I love Bryanís vocals, but seems like a lot of people donít like the growls on that cover.

Anyway rest of the album is here, iím enjoying what has been released so far. AiC was one of the bands that lead me into metal.

I've lived a thousand times. I found out what it means to be believed.



When it comes to Thou I like their albums, and I enjoyed the first few covers I heard. However at this point after hearing an entire album of nirvana covers among tons of other covers I think I'm just a bit oversaturated, and don't feel the need to hear his voice over every song by other bands.

That being said I loving WISH i had been at the Thou/Emma Ruth Rundle misfits cover set at the skatepark at roadburn.

Anyway...

Just noticed this in the OP

Melvins - Houdini - I... don't think I can quite explain The Melvins


Man I loving love Melvins. Pretty sure I've made that known since I began posting in this thread, but it never hurts to say it again. One of my all time favorite bands.

I havenít listened to anything of theirs thatís come out in the last 15 years or so but I still consider them one of my all time favorites even if Buzz is turning out to be a dick.

I dragged a friend to this show at cbgbs 30 years ago because of all the things I had read about them in MRR.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2etSqqzJSbw

Turns out it was a full bullhead set but I didnít know any particular songs at the time.

I was tripping on some green windowpane acid and the whole thing was revelatory. Now I feel like I already mentioned this here before but gently caress it.

After the show I had to tell the band how blown away I was so I pour my heart out to the bass player who finally says ďthanks but Iím only in the band for this tourĒ

Then I leaned against the rotting wall which bowed in, and combined with the acid I felt like I was falling through the wall. I think while I was bugging at that the dude snuck off.

Woof, that article makes him seem like an even bigger douchebag.

The whole "the totenkopf is just a skull u guys" thing is really infuriating.

quote:

Thereís no swastikas, thereís nothing like that on there, thereís nothing promoting [Nazism]. Itís just a skull. Thatís it. If people wanna associate that with Nazism, every skull could be. I like skull imagery. I like all that stuff. It doesnít scare me.

And then the fact that Iím a Jew anyway, even if that was the angle we were going through, ironic and weirdÖ thatís a part of our whole deal. Weíre a band called the Melvins. [laughs] Itís like, CíMON, yíknow? Weíre not called Satanic Death. Weíre the Melvins. Thatís by design. We wanna make you think. We donít sound like what our name sounds like. Thatís on purpose.

Am I misreading this or is he basically saying "we called ourselves the Melvins because it sounds like a Jewish name, and because we don't like it"

I think he means it is a silly-sounding, inconspicuous name rather than something that is more controversial.

Sounds like a hell of a time. Of course I'll always be most fond of early melvins, but I've found great appreciation for the (death) side of a walk with love and death. Nude with Boots is my easy favorite of their later catalogue.

And yeah, buzz... he's definitely wired differently. I mean poo poo he literally goes by "King"

I saw Melvins a few years back in London on the same bill as Yob, Sleep, Slayer and Wolves in the Throne Room.

It was a loving incredible gig, Melvins had two drummers.

Saw them at GAMH in SF in '11 or '12 with 2 drummers, that was a fully epic show. Last time I saw them was with 2 bassists, and that was definitely not as cool as 2 drummers, and to be honest I just found the sound too muddy with 2 bass players live. Still rocked though.

I have a question and I trust goons to answer to the best of their ability. Is mephistofeles nazis? I like a lot of south american doom like Arteaga and Las Historias. Apparently their was some something going on with I'm heroin. I've just found a lot of different things. Their lead singer did a song with Devil's Witches and like, 90 percent of their work is about female empowerment. Just seems weird to me.

the only Nazi related things I could find about them a few months back was the imagery on a couple album covers. and just being Argentinian.

im thinking they used the imagery for ~shock value~. they seem to have switched from nazi shock to sex and satan shock

there really aren't many nazis in doom metal(I can't actually think of any off the top of my head), and nothing about this band looks particularly objectionable.

We've never been into punk. It was too traditional.


I realized Buzz was a dick a while back in some spoken word thing where he was talking about how shortly after Kurt Cobian killed himself, one of them was wearing a shirt that made a joke about it, and krist novoselic saw it and stormed off. But he was telling it like it was some super funny joke, and it was hilarious how they owned krist, who afaik was a friend of theirs. It was so tone deaf and you could tell the audience was just like ,"uhhhh...ok"

it was also like the worst spoken word I have ever seen. He basically just did nothing but name drop the entire time.
