The Bride Screamed Murder

June 9, 2010

The Melvin’s released a new album entitled The Bride Screamed Murder (Ipecac Recordings). Some of the tracks sound like Adam & the Ants with that sludgey Melvin’s edge that I happen to really like.

Here’s a description from a writer at Chicks with Guns magazine (CWG):

They’ve been described as sounding like an explosion in a machine shop, a drum set falling down stairs, a wolverine and a trout in a blender, ice cream and pickles, talentless geeks and a several other flattering epithets.
King Buzzo describes the Melvins music as Captain Beefheart playing heavy metal… I guess that’s a pretty good description.

If you’ve liked the Melvins over the past 25/26 years they’ve been playing you’re going to love this album.

Here’s a preview of the album I found on you tube:
