The immense popular and influential American rock band The Melvins recorded their eight studio album Stag in 1996. It doesn't sound like anything they recorded before. The first notes of opening track "The Bit" make it clear that on this albukm they're experimenting with all kinds of sounds; bringing together the drone sounds of the sitar with the greatness of King Buzzo's guitar riffs. The schizophrenia can be heard by the introductions of noise and ambience. The album even includes prog based music, like in the epic "Buck Owens". This album is one hell of a ride, from sludge metal, experimental grunge to blues rock and pop. Another classic tune is "Bar-X and The Rocking M", which explodes in the power of the trombone and monster riffs.
From the early days of on Melvins guitarist Buzz Osborne and drummer Dale Crover created some influential pieces and are releasing records on a yearly basis. The variety of different musical styles used in their music, made them popular in all kinds of different fanbases.
