This has probably been done before hundreds of times but wheres the best place to start for a Melvins newcomer?
Big huge heavy drone bastard = Lysol (aka self titled)
Fairly normal rock album = Stoner Witch
But I would start with Hostile Ambient Takeover because it contains all of the above. And awesome riffs. And no ambient whatsoever.
Who had 22:00pm - 23:00pm as the time Mug would reply?
I was betting on 23:31...
So i guess you win Fully darling.
I win the right to dispense bad advice.
i've become predictable :(
The board always looks more interesting in the daytime, but i'm a busy man ye kna.
Surely someone else on here listens to the Mevlins.
Two spelling mistakes in the same thread!!
Mevlins and Melivns. I like it.
Actually i'm in the same boat as Peter... Never actually heard anything. Was always put off by the Nirvana link, but I guess you're gonna shout at me for that...
It's better than the Tool link!
Listen to this! The perfect combo of cheesy riffs and noisy goodness.
that you're only 21 man. Always saw you as one of the older maturer posters.
That was quite cool actually! May have to check out more...
it's because I don't post all the time no mo I think. If I did then Smoosh would look like grannies in comparison.
Wow I didnt even notice my spelling mistake, my eyes are screwed.
the better I say, Houdini is kind of borderline, and then after it gets a bit samey, apart from the album with a cover of Youth of America by Wipers, which is amazing. Not the album, just that song.
