Biography

“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

5.0 out of 5 stars The Melvins leave Boner with Greatness August 27, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The final release on Boner Records before leaving for the majors. I must admit this is one of the best Melvins releases to date only five songs but well worth it. The Melvins like to dick with your mind and this record is no exception. They neglect to list any of the songs, and the orginal title of the record was Lysol before they were threatened to be sued. The song listing goes as follows. 1. HUNG BUNNY 2. ROMAN DOGBIRD 3. SACRIFICE 4. BALLAD OF DWIGHT FRY 5. WITH TEETH.. Sacrifice is a cover of the classic flipper tune, while the ballad of dwight fry is an alice cooper cover. The best song in my opinion has to be with teeth this song alone is well worth the money.

this one came out in '91. its one of the very few albums that included the almighty Joe Preston on bass. one of the great things about this CD is that all the songs are all on one track. so it forces you to listen to this long, winding, sludgefest in its entirety. as most Melvins fans know, this (along with Houdini) was the pinacle of their musical career. after this, they made some great albums and some good ones, but never better than their self-titled album (previously titled "Lysol", but they decided to change it once they were threatened with a lawsuit). it would be ultra-cool if Ipecac records would give this album a deluxe re-issue treatment. it definitely deserves it.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent October 24, 2010
Format:Audio CD
It is amazing what grunge brought to the top. When Nirvana got big, a lot of Kurt Cobain's favorite bands got exposure they could have never dreamed of. The Melvins, who Cobain drummed for and produced, were one of these.

I had not heard these guys since that grungy flood of the early 1990s, but when something is this out---be it from a Beefheart artsy instinct or just pure post-punk noise, I bite. As I did yesterday hearing this in a use shop yesterday: fresh with a yearly work bonus and on one of my vinyl eating binges.

I am not sure if you would call these pieces songs or slabs or song slab fragments. Then again, who gives a Stratocastor: The huge, Black Sabbathy riffs here are like you are hearing 1970s metal at the wrong speed, and then there is that voice, that booming, tormented vocal, so deliberate and menacing. Listening to this is like drowning in very delicious mud.

No one should be allowed to make sounds like this, not even cavemen. But the Melvins do, and in lies the brilliant idiocy of this album

Back to this art/noise deal, as if it did matter. Is this post rock statement, rock after nuclear attack, some kind of genius ramshackle deconstruction of music after the blast, or bored over grown children in their garage, playing with GI Joe Les Pauls.

I don't know, but I love these geniuses, these morons. I love every second of this music

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint of heart! December 7, 2004
Format:Audio CD
If you're thinking about buying this album and you don't know that much about the Melvins, be prepared for something different. This is not like Slayer or Metallica. These are not neat programmed tracks with lots of screaming and flashy instrumentals. This is a monstrous, lurching, foreboding journey into the genius of Dale Crover and Buzzo which culminates in the hair-raising finale of "With Teeth." This album is an atmospheric experience - you will need to listen to it in such a way that you are not looking for catchy hooks or interesting changes - it builds gradually and must be "felt" rather than heard. Crank it up and let the heavy waves wash over you... just be forewarned, this is NOT for those of you with high blood pressure, lol!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best......song ever?!! December 24, 2003
Format:Audio CD
On their last album before going major, the Melvins created, arguably, their best....song ever. Originally titled "Lysol", its one track is actually six songs fused together as one lumbering beast. They are: Hung Bunny, Roman Dog Bird, Sacrifice (Flipper), Second Coming (Alice Cooper), The Ballad of Dwight Fry (Alice Cooper) and With Teeth. Though the majority of the material on the album is not theirs, the Melvins sucessfully make it their own with crushing precision. Like a huge, lead wrecking ball being lowered upon you from above, you start to feel the weight of these songs about midway into it and by the end you are choking and gasping for air.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definition of HEAVY April 7, 2000
By MC
Format:Audio CD
Look no further, this is it. The heaviest album ever! When I put this album in unsuspecting people always say, "What the hell is that". After the drums kick in they just sit there in disbelief. The next statement is usually, " I have never heard anything like that, who is it?" Do youself a favor and buy this album, you won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars the definition of heavy music March 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
if you don't know what's up with the backstory of this album read the reviews below this one. i'm gonna try to just cut to the chase, cause i know that i hate reading long winded reviews as much as the next guy or gal!

this is a really heavy album that is condensed into one super track. every song on it is fantastic, with the stand out being "with teeth", which is the final song on here.

if you're into heavy music already and don't own this you'll love it. if you're looking to get into the melvins i'd recommend that you start with either this or stoner witch. aside from what everyone says about post-lysol melvins, they're actually not really that bad. they changed a bit, but i still like it.

Some of their best music. Really heavy riffs. The ballad of Dwight Fry is on here, an old Alice Cooper song.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for every Melvins fan
Yeah, it's one 31+ minute track, but it is 31 minutes and change of awesome. It takes about 12 minutes to start rolling, but once it does it is a beautiful slab of sludge.

31 minutes, 21 seconds of pure Melvins magic.

One of my favourite albums, along with Bullhead, Ozma, Gluey Porch Treatments and (A) Senile Animal

Enough said.

This album basically invented the slow, droney sludge metal that bands like Sunn 0)) and Earth play. The first 2 songs are kind of connected and are slow and extremely heavy. Read more
