Melvins

Melvins are an American band that formed in Montesano, Washington in 1982. In the early days of their career their dark, heavy, oppressively slow sound made them innovators of genres like sludge, grunge, and doom metal. Melvins' music is influenced by Flipper, Black Flag's My War-era hardcore punk and Black Sabbath-style heavy metal, but their idiosyncratic approach, bizarre sense of humor, and experimentation make neat categorization difficult.

Artist Type: 

Budd

Thundering, mostly instrumental, mid 90s band from Australia. Heavy basslines with heavier guitar melodies punctuated by vintage synth sounds and chanting, Budd was a unique band. With some occasional quieter tracks that borrowed from vintage surf sounds, Budd's real claim to fame was their heavy jams. With a revolving line up and based in different cities at different times, the only constant was / is Jeremy "Budd", a respected sound engineer currently working in Brisbane. The group formed in Brisbane, Australia before relocating to Melbourne.
