Melvins - The Maggot
Starts off with a cooker. Then heavy plodding grooving march that seems to go on for a very long time and that's before the feedback fest. Que the riff rockin' and do it like Slayer. Zip. Stop. Cycles. Get Heavy tourted guitar. Judas Priest! More rockin'. Ends with a big slow dirge, the kind not heard on a Melvins since Lysol, Eggnog era. This is a solid album. The heavy gooves on these songs last a very long time so you can get your mosh on. This is part one in a trilogy of albums. This is the essential one of the three. One of the Melvins top ten releases. More straight forward than a lot of them.
