MELVINS/LUSTMORD: Pigs of the Roman Empire: CD

Jul 11, 2007

No notes came with this, so I’m speculating in a second: I think Lustmord is an old industrial outfit or guy who’s probably been on the underground music scene even longer than the Melvins, and who here apparently remixes some parts of some new Melvins songs in the direction of ambience, while the new Melvins songs themselves, when not being remixed, are top-notch riffy Melvins fare, some of the best I’ve heard in years. Perfect for every mood there is, including: excited, sleepy, sulky, beaming, wistful, hungry, and stung by a bee.
