I mean no but they got enough metal influence and influenced metal enough so that calling them metal or not is academic.

I don't think they ever bothered to think of themselves as anything but an experimental rock band tbh. What a band think of themselves as genre wise is kind of important.

Whatever they thought they were what they really were was a reincarnated Black Sabbath

Their approach to their music is rather important to categorization since whatever they think of themselves will inform their direction and I don't think the Melvins ever thought of themselves as metal and likewise their music never did anything but touch on metal. They're just a rock band.

They’re pioneers of the Black Sabbath Revival Movement

Like Faith No More, they're tangentially related to metal, but it depends a lot on the specific song.

I don't think that's a thing. They were just down with My War.
