“Tres Cabrones is as close as we’re willing to get to the Melvins 1983 line-up,” explained Osborne, of the 12-song album that reunites him, Dale Crover and original drummer Mike Dillard. “The best part is it’s all new songs. I specifically wrote tunes that would be good for these guys to play and it worked out great. We had no interest in rehashing tunes we ... Read more in Amazon's Melvins Store

Editorial Reviews

2010 release from the veteran Al-Rock outfit. The Melvins did all the good things a band can do and are still relevant after more than 25 years. They keep it exciting by ignoring any set of rules, by their exorbitant ability to make the most beautiful noise ever heard and by their humor, which is an essential brandmark of The Melvins. They never compromise or apply for anything: they just do their own thing in their very own way. They always keep it challenging for themselves and potential listeners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great new record, want to see it performed live! June 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First, I'll admit I am biased, I'm a huge fan of the Melvins current lineup with Jared and Coady, Buzzo and Dale. I was incredibly happy with A Senile Animal, Nude with Boots didn't hit me in the same place, but is a good listen, The Bride Screamed Murder takes things to another level though, start to finish I listened transfixed.

The intro track The Water Glass as mentioned previously has a blistering military cadence section that I can only imagine being perfromed live with both drummers, and he album finsihes with the unsettling, but oddly beautiful P.G. X 3

If you have enjoyed recent releases with the current lineup, I highly recommend you give this one a try. If you thought they were OK but love The Melvins in general, I'd still say it's a buy because IMO it may be their best release in many years.

5.0 out of 5 stars It grows on every listen June 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
The Melvins are one of favorite bands and the new line up rocks. I'm a huge Big Business fan and have been a fan of Karp for a long time so when I heard Jared was going to be in the Melvins I was excited. All 3 records have a new energized feel this record is more of the same goodness. But this one enters new territory with the excellent slow & heavy My Generation cover, the jazz infused tune, the opening track sounding like a military chant after the crushing riffs and drums and the last tune a has an old timey folk/western feel. But on a whole it still rocks like the Melvins do! Give it a couple listens and I think you'll learn to love it. They continue to do new things after so many glorious years, heres to another great Melvins record!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Heap of Melvins June 8, 2010
Format:Audio CD
For the Melvins to do an odd album, it would probably have to be a techno-rave, keyboard only something with no vocals. That said, this is one of the Melvins odder albums, and it may take a few listens to get used to it, but the effort is worth it.

"The Water Glass," at 4'16", kicks things off with one of those seemingly-in-an-odd-time-signature power-chord crunch fests for about a minute, collapses into a nice big heap of mayhem ... then turns suddenly, and pretty much literally, into an army march callback (including the "huuuus"), albeit with not quite military lyrics. Well, there's a bit of a drum solo first, then the callbacks. It's of course pretty amusing and, with usual Melvins self-indulgence, probably goes on longer than it needs to, but after a few listens to the album, it's pretty groovy. The only decision is, is the water glass half full or half empty then?

"Evil New War God," at 4'48" once again kicks off with more power chords, crunching away gloriously with Buzz howling in the center of the mix somewhere, coming up every occasionally on something like chorus chords for a breath of fresh air. Then at approximately 1'40 the riff shifts into an even chuggier, more compelling guitar thing and one of those wily throw-away guitar solos Buzz is so good at. And then, at 3'00", everything falls apart into a drum/power chord callback session with a death metal horror theme of some sort just to round out the song. So, that's two songs that are both more than one song smashed interestingly together. The Melvins have been doing this a long time, and they're surprisingly good at it. What's interesting is how they somehow make the parts seem like they belong together.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very solid load June 1, 2010
By io loki
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Slow and heavy. Guitar work reminiscent of Gluey Porch Treatments. Drums loud, heavy, dominating. Widest range of the Melvins sound on one album, from the heavy to the "weird." A touch of Mike Patton in there somewhere.

This is not quite on the level of Bullhead, but it is up there, especially the first 5 songs. The only problem with this album is that it leaves me wanting more.

My ratings are based on other Melvins songs. So a 5 means one of the best Melvins songs; 3 is an average Melvins song.

The Water Glass
Melvins marching song
4 stars

Evil New War God
Solid Melvins heaviness with a Fantomas ending
4 stars

Pig House
Melvins doing Fantomas doing a marching song
4 stars

I'll Finish You Off
Gluey porch treatments at its slowest best. Close your eyes and meditate to this one.
5 stars

Electric Flower
Uptempto, sludging, layered vocals, complex, leaves you wanting more
4 stars

Hospital Up
Mellow song, could be off of Stag
3 stars, but may grow on you

Inhumanity And Death
Fast, thrashy, essentially a musical interlude
3 stars

My Generation
Slow, heavy, good, but not the best cover the Melvins have produced
3 stars, but may grow on you

P.G. x 3
Is that a harmonica? Is that a hymn? Epic guitar solo? A child counting? Has an eerie feel of
Delirium Cordia by Fantomas.
4 stars (if you like this song, Delirium Cordia)

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't put it down! July 19, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This album is full of odd hooks and rhythms that get inside your head and set up residence. I have listened to it 50 times and it still sounds fresh to me. It is too easy to underestimate the range of these great musicians and just think they are all about noise and distortion. There is a reason The Melvins have been around for over 25 years and continue to influence so many other bands. That reason is apparent in The Bride Screamed Murder; they are making the complex seem simple. The buzz saw guitar, unique use of percussion and the beauty of the last track should make it clear just how good The Melvins are and how wide their range is. I think one reviewer referred to them as "defiantly noncommercial". If they keep making CDs like this they are going to fool around and make a chart busting hit someday.
