There are so many ways to describe the great Melvins and none of these words will ever describe them more perfect then “restless”. The combo around Buzz Osbourne cannot let a year go by without releasing a new record – their newest masterpiece is called “Pinkus Abortion Technician”. To realize it, the trio got Butthole Surfers bass player Jeff Pinkus involved. We know the Melvins’ line-up with two drummers or two guitar players, but two bass players are something innovative for the band. The record itself is a variation of new songs and covers. The opener “Stop Moving To Florida” is a combined cover version of the James Gang song of the same name and the Butthole Surfers’ song “Moving To Florida”. A Beatles track is as well part of the album as the band’s own songs, which breath the well-known brute-noise sound of the Melvins. Even if you’re not a fan already, you should definitely check this record out and become one.

Wiegedood – De Doden Hebben Het Goed III

Author: Felix Hølter

Band: Wiegedood
Album: De Doden Hebben Het Goed III

Label: Century Media Records

With „De Doden Heben Het Goed III“, Belgium’s Black Metal avant-gardists Wiegedood continue playing their atmospheric, monotonous and epic style of Black Metal. Once more, they succeed in taking the spirit of bands like Weakling to the next level, adding that dark intensity, which makes every single Church Of Ra band so special. This third album is a solid sequel to Wiegedoods‘ two other releases. You shouldn’t expect too many experiments, but another record of constant Wiegedood quality.
