The Melvins were the first post-punk band to revel in the slow, sludgy sounds of Black Sabbath, picking up where Black Flag left off with My War.

Their music is oppressively slow and heavy, only without any of the silly mystical lyrics or the indulgent guitar solos; it's just one massive, oozing pile of dark slime, rising from the swamp to bludgeon your eardrums. The Melvins' first record was released in 1987; they've released dozens of albums since then, but it wasn't until 1993 that they went to a major label, thanks to their protégé, Kurt Cobain. While some may find the Melvins dull and repetitious, their place in rock history is interesting, with the band's cult following slowly but steadily expanding thanks to constant touring and a remarkably prolific album release schedule.

Two unusual releases from the Melvins arrived in 2016. An album the group began recording in 1999 with Mike Kunka of Godheadsilo was finally completed and released as Three Men and a Baby, credited to Mike & the Melvins. And in mid-2016 they issued Basses Loaded, where the group recruited a handful of favorite bass players to collaborate on songs. The guest artists included Krist Novoselic of Nirvana, Steve McDonald of Redd Kross and OFF!, Jeff Pinkus, Trevor Dunn, and Jared Warren. One of the few things the Melvins hadn't done was release a double album, but finally they were able to cross that off their list in 2017 with A Walk with Love and Death. The 23-track release included material written and recorded as the score to a film by Jesse Nieminen. Come out and see Melvins at A&R Music Bar on August 4th!
