Also my favorites are Bullhead, Houdini, and Gluey Porch Treatments.
You could go with Lysol, Ozma, or Electroretard. But its up to you what you wanna do.

I honestly don't understand why Bullhead is the most well known Melvins album. I mean, it's good, but I don't see it.

I honestly don't understand it either. I mean its a good album but its not exactly their best.

Yup, Amazon was the only place that had it, and I found myself paying for music (haven't done that in a looooong while.)

I know that feeling in a different sense. There are certain songs by Slough Feg and Manilla Road that I simply cannot find on the internet at all. They have the odd rare demo track or two that has not seen the light of day on a compilation release or anything. They're rare songs that we may never get to hear at all and not even torrents can help me find them.

Not bad. I know they've done similar electro stuff before, but I love how they are doing stuff that is anything but stoner metal.

1. Warhead (Venom; Guest: Scott Kelly of Neurosis)

One of the sludgiest Venom tracks. I can imagine they'll do good things with it, and Scott Kelly is always a treat.

3. Black Betty (traditional)

I like their version of this, I wonder if they'll be going for a more traditional sound as opposed to the Ram Jam sounding one.

4. Set It On Fire (The Scientists; Guest: Mark Arm)

Fuck yes. Love TheScientists

7. Female Trouble (Divine a.k.a. John Waters)

HAHAHAHA

13. Heathen Earth (Throbbing Gristle)

YES...YES!

Duff, I'd say Stag, (A) Senile Animal, and Gluey Porch Treatments are their best albums, Stag being their best. I personally think they've gotten a bit better as time went on, so don't be afraid to give newer albums a try. Also, check out Flipper, to see a proto sludge/grunge band that even predated Melvins.

So... any Amebix fans?

You can't really go wrong with Melvins. They're impressively consistent. Personally I'm not to crazy about Houdini, but a lot of other people seem to be.

Flipper is always awesome.
You should totally check out Wipers along with Fang. The guitarist from Fang (Tom Flynn) founded a label that both Fang and Melvins released stuff on. Though Fang are more Hardcore Punk and Wipers are Post-Punk.

I like Fang, and I've heard of the Wipers, but never checked them out. I'll put it on my before-i-go-to-bed-to-do-list.

Also, I like how Melvins were once with Slap-a-Ham records. I know it's not uncommon for punk bands (despite the Melvin's metal tendencies, I consider them to be punk) to play on diverse record labels, it's funny how far away they were from the other stuff on that label. Melt Banana too.

So the band Pallbearer recently had 3 guitars stolen from them.

They are
1970's Harmony Les Paul copy (no name on headstock) tobacco sunburst, carved body, and Lace Pickups installed.
Mid-200's PRS - Red with a considerable amount of black gaffers tape on headstock (covering name and a very large chip in the upper headstock point.) Stock humbuckers with cream pickup surrounds.
and a Mid-2000's Hofner - Black double-cutaway Les Paul Junior style, with P90's, Upper horn strap peg is likely missing.

They were stolen from the North Little Rock area. So if anyone has any info about them I guess you can contact them on their Facebook (they have a pic of the stolen guitars on there).

I've listened to some stuff by Anaal Nathrakh lately, and these guys are rather interesting. I don't know quite yet if I'm really enjoying their stuff, or if it's just... so brutal, so raw, so in your face and original, that I have to listen to it. However, I've only listened to one of their albums, and I have yet to explore more of their discography to know if they progressed in anyway throughout their career. The album I own is In the Constellation of the Black Widow. If you guys are interested by killer black metal/grindcore, I'd say these guys do quite the job.

In conclusion, I've still added these guys to my imaginary list of very very brutal bands alongside with Balrog and Infernal Stronghold. Anyway... if you guys know them, let me know. And if you know any other raw and brutal bands, outside of noisy and distortined disembodied "music", I'd be really happy if you could share.

Anaal Nathrakh are awesome. I still love how they program their drums, gives it that cold, mechanical touch. I can't exactly recommend any one album, but I personally still think their debut full length is their best, but that's probably nostalgia.

I'll get back at you with some recs later.

That's why I love Aborym's earlier stuff too; the drums had this cold, mechanical feel as well.

I wouldn't trade the vocals of greats like Bruce Dickinson, Ozzie Osbourne, Ronnie James Dio, James LaBrie, Alice Cooper, hell, even James Hetfield or Dave Mustaine to have just instrumental metal.

Instrumentals have their place in Metal, just not all of it.
