One of the rare gems in the Melvins post 2000 careers. Lustmord (I don’t even really know or care who he is) adds some nice textures to the Melvins music and they provide some of the best riffs they’ve written in a while. The album is mostly instrumental and has some really fucked up shit on it but it’s probably the last Melvins full-length album I enjoyed.
Best Song: Pigs of the Roman Empire (I can't find a link to the full twenty minute version, but this is my favorite part)
