The Melvins.

I decided to do this series of posts just because i like a lot Drone music, and how can i start posting Drone without mention the starters of all, The Melvins.

The Melvins, the beginning, the fuck genesis of  Drone and Sludge, some people call those subgenres of doom, some people think those genres are completely dissociated of Doom Metal, i think they can be mixed, but Drone is another genre, without Doom in it, Sludge, most of Sludge bands (for not saying all the bands) also play Doom or Doom influenced, this band in particular, changed their style in every release, from Doom to Stoner to general Metal to Punk Rock, but only few of their releases influenced the creation of this two Sub genres of extreme music (yes extreme music, i don't consider extreme music only thrash, doom, death and black, i think extreme genres, those who lack of limits and boundaries, those are extreme, i.e. Drone.) so this band, having lyrically themes almost every random shit you can imagine, it just lacks of pattern, that just adds interest in my opinion.

In this time i will only post two of their full length releases,  i think two releases that influenced the creation of Drone and Sludge.

The Melvins - Houdini (1993)

Cute cover huh?, believe me, if you like doom, you'll like this, and if you wanna know the beginning of those beloved subgenres of music, listen to this.

Band: The Melvins
Disc: Houdini
Year: 1993
Country: USA
Genre: Doom/Stoner.


The Melvins - Stoner Witch (1994)

Another great release, mostly stoner influenced, doom and shit, just listen.

Band: The Melvins
Disc: Stoner Witch
Year: 1994
Country: USA
Genre: Stoner/Doom Metal/Rock


Obviously these are not the only releases of this band, i will post some of them later, also some Drone of course, and if you like raw black metal only and true madness and that shit, step away, you'll hate this if you're narrow minded and shit...
