  1. This album is an onslaught of brutal drumming and bowel-loosening riffs, occasionally leavened by surprisingly delicate vocal interplay.
  2. Continuing where the dark grooves of 8's Nude With Boots left off, The Bride… exhibits the perfect marriage between the Big Business boys and Melvins main-men King Buzzo and Dale Crover.
  3. After its so-so start, the disc settles into a grinding yet angular groove that feels as fresh and energized as anything the group released during its â??90s heyday.

    After 25 years, The Melvins are still showing rock's terrible pretenders how it's done.

    The first song will BLOW YOU AWAY! the album starts out very stong but does sort of lose some power along the way, BUT this is the melvins soThe first song will BLOW YOU AWAY! the album starts out very stong but does sort of lose some power along the way, BUT this is the melvins so that means that this album is **** metal. The melvins have still got it, as proof by the amazing guitar work of the King Buzzo and the brutally awesome drumming by Dale. And the big buisness boys show they know how to keep up with King Buzzo and Dale. a great album, but not their best (but hey 18 albums and they all kick some real ASS) Full Review »
