  1. The Bride Screamed Murder is the sort of album one might expect from a long-in-the-tooth group trying to rediscover its purpose and rejuvenate itself.
  2. It's hard to be impressed by The Bride Screamed Murder, if only because it sticks so closely to the Melvins's routine, but jadedness aside, it's song-for-song as good as anything they've done in the last decade.
  3. Uncut

    The Bride Screamed Murder channels the band's two-kit battery into intense percussion romps topped by burly call-and-response bellows, like a military drill conducted on strong hallucinogens. [Aug 2010, p.88]

    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 »
