Coming Soon… MELVINS Working With GOD

13 January 2021

Most musicians love to work and collaborate with other artists in order to get inspired,
or to benefit from the famous status of the other one(s), or to just jam around for fun. It happens all the time. But as far as I can remember nobody worked with the Almighty so far, which what proto-punk veterans MELVINS will exactly do on their new 24th (!) album, coming your way on 26th February.

While you wait, check lead-single Caddy Daddy, dropped
on the first day of this new year. Wow! God sounds just
like Black Sabbath

The Holy One Is A Punk – MELVINS Thunder On New LP ‘WORKING WITH GOD’

18 March 2021

Band: MELVINS (Montesano, Washington, U.S.)
Making havoc since 1983

Album: WORKING WITH GOD – 24th (!) LP
Released: 26 February

Info: The second release from the Melvins 1983 iteration of
the band which features Buzz, Dale and original drummer Mike Dillard.

Kerrang! wrote: “As with the rest of the Melvins’ lengthy back catalogue is that the guitar takes centre stage for the duration; enormous, bouncy riffs lay the foundations of every song like a wrecking ball, while Buzz’s vocal delivery adds a leisurely juxtaposition to the breakneck speed of the instrumental dynamics. As far as sludgy, frenzied noise rock is concerned, there are few who do it better than Melvins, and Working With God is tangible proof.” Score 4/5.

Turn Up the Volume: If this is the first time you hear legendary metallic-punk-rock engine Melvins you’ll defintely think that they are some young glue-sniffing bastards who just left their smelly basements to rock their asses off. Expect Black Sabbath going paranoid (Caddy Daddy/Hot Fish/Negative No No), Ministry speeding with their hot rods (Boy Mike/Bouncing Rick), Metallica with balls (Hund/The Great Good Place), The Beach Boys chasing Californian Riot Girls, and enough fucks to make Tony Montana aka Scarface sniff another series of fucking coke lines. Hell bloody hell yeah! No rest for the wicked!

It’s official now: God is a devilish punk and Melvins are his messed-up Apostles.

New single: WITCH

Holy cow! If Black Sabbath wanted to make a mad tower-of-Herculean drones impact
with their last reunion they should have had the dynamite force of these three manic motherrockers like here on their new ballbreaker Witch, a colossal sledgehammer with
a skullcrushing fierceness

No mercy!

their right to party. Wait, don’t go yet. Midway a pyrotechnics Tony Iommi guitar solo

KERRANG! says: “This is an album that’s compelling and will leave you

Score: 4/5.

7 years to load their batteries for this new head-banging LP. Let your

Punch-Powered-Punk-Passion – Play ‘i became birds’ by ‘Home Is Where’ Very Loud

9 March 2021

band: home is where
who: inspiring punks from florida, america producing a unique blend of whirlwind hardcore aggression and warm, open-hearted folksy melancholy. the bittersweet
folk melodies seep deeply into the band’s DNA, adding an element of accessibility
and immediate nostalgia to otherwise churning and angular song structures and
sonic assaults. vocals range from an intimate, gentle, and disarming croon to a full-
bodied expectoration of the soul. gothic post-punk and staccato-heeled screamo.

album: i became birds
released: 5 march 2021

score: i’m damn sure this incredible punch-powered-punk-passion turbo was here
before, about 40 years ago, inspiring bored kids like black flag , shellac, melvins, jello
, and other anarchist snotnoses, to leave home, steal guitars and drums in order
to have some wild fun while scaring bad people with their deafening racket that’ll teach those old-fashioned adults watching all day long.

so here they are back again, inspiring young social media junkies to steal guitars and drums instead of watching their phones all day long. home is where it all starts when you have no money to rent a smelly rehearsal room to rock your heads off. so you move into your own smelly basement and scream your poor lungs to pieces. listen up all you lost teenagers out there, play i became birds over and over again ’cause these hungry florida misfits can and will save your lives…
