Genres

Made available for the first time on vinyl, Melvins’ Hostile Ambient Takeover was originally released in seven 7” chunks — and as such, there’s a certain comprehensive diversity to the LP package. You could think of this is an excellent primer for any would-be sludgers; ‘The Fool, The Meddling Idiot’ and ‘Foaming’ are classic Melvins chuggers, flowing with the unstoppable force of a sewage river, while ‘Dr. Geek’ and ‘(untitled)’ hint at the group’s documented penchant for Tad-flavoured breakneck hardcore punk numbers. In the proud tradition of Melvins closing epics, ‘The Anti-Vermin Seed’ does it all with its glorious noise jam and subsequent sonic collapse.
