Melvins released a re-recording of the song “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath”, Black Sabbath classic. The version counts on the participation of the singer and bassist of Sleep, Al Cisneros.
The Melvins version for “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath” comes to the public as a single and doesn’t include the tracklist of any studio album. The band’s latest album, “Pinkus Abortion Technician”, was released last April and features previously unreleased tracks and covers by Beatles, James Gang and Butthole Surfers.
The Melvins are an American rock band that formed in 1983 in Montesano, Washington. They have mostly performed as a trio, as well as a quartet with two drummers in recent years. Since 1984, vocalist and guitarist Buzz Osborne and drummer Dale Crover have been constant members.
The band was named after a supervisor at a Thriftway in Montesano, Washington, where Osborne also worked as a clerk. “Melvin” was disliked by other employees, and the band’s members felt it to be an appropriately ridiculous name. Their early work was key to the development of both grunge and sludge metal.
