I liked Screaming Trees too. I forget his name, but the Melvins' singer has some of the best rock hair this side of Claudio Sanchez.

That whole album like that? All anyone ever shows me is Houdini. Might add to my spotify if so.

I'm not enough of a Melvins aficionado to remember but they were definitely moving in a more experimental direction by that point (two albums after Houdini). Stag is definitely a banger album though by my recollection. I'm in a pretty Melvins mood atm though so in the near future I might be able to give you a more informed recomendation.

I remember Melvins being one of the heavier bands out of that era. Mudhoney was up there too, if I remember correctly.

Throw Stoner Witch in there too if you dig it. And Lysol since I remember you being into drone maybe?

Not drone so much. Very discerning with the drone. It's easy for drone to be bereft of character IMO. I'll throw Stoner Witch album in the pot too though.

Is Melvins a METAL band?

I don't know if they're considered metal.

With Soundgarden, Kim was interviewed for a metal documentary a number of years back (Metal evolution). They never considered themselves to be metal.
