    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 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) Expand

  1. As they prove constantly on The Bride Screamed Murder, though, there's so much more to this band these days than merely crushing riffs; there's more than enough room to go nuts with the experimentation and still come up with a top-tier Melvins record.

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

    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]
