Alice In Chains, Mad Season, Screaming Trees, Hole, L7, 7 Year Bitch, Mudhoney, Melvins, Paw, and the Judgment Night soundtrack.
This week we're focusing on 10 incredible grunge/alternative rock albums from the magic '90s. Think about Alice in Chains, one of the darkest bands to emerge from Seattle. Their 1992 album Dirt was a milestone in the grunge-genre. The Seattle-based supergroup Mad Season recorded Above as their only studio album. It was released in March 1995, featuring guest vocals from Mark Lanegan. Screaming Trees, fronted by the same Lanegan is known for its raw psychedelic, whiskey voiced garage rock. Their breakthrough album Uncle Anesthesia is produced by Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Audioslave) and metal producer Terry Date, known for his recordings of Pantera.
Celebrity Skin by Hole was a huge commercial achievement, successfully bridging the gap between Grunge and guitar Pop. The band revolving around Kurt Cobain's widow Courtney Love carved a niche for themselves as the seminal female-fronted Grunge group. L7 is a punk rock band from Los Angeles, often associated with the grunge movement of the late 1980s and early 1990s. Their album Hungry for Stink is available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on transparent vinyl. Gato Negro is the final album by the American punk rock band 7 Year Bitch. It spawned three singles: "The History Of My Future," "24,900 Miles Per Hour" and "Miss Understood". This record is available as a limited edition of 500 individually numbered copies on moss green vinyl.
After their successful period in the early days of the grunge, Mudhoney spread their wings to the blues and garage rock on their album Tomorrow Hit Today. The iconic fifth album Houdini by the Melvins captures the band's power, vision, and musical strangeness. It's their ultimate classic and a must-have for every grunge and music fan in general. Paw released their debut studio album Dragline in 1993. It is widely considered among fans and critics as their best album. The last title we're mentioning is one from our At The Movies soundtrack label. Judgment Night's seminal '90s Rock/Hip Hop collaboration featuring heavy-hitting combos such as Slayer & Ice-T, Helmet & House of Pain, Sonic Youth & Cypress Hill. It also features a highly sought after collaboration between Pearl Jam & Cypress Hill.

The only album to be completed by the Seattle-based supergroup Mad Season, Above has achieved mythic status among hard rock aficionados. This expanded double 12" vinyl edition includes the original album in its entirety as well as three songs from the band's unfinished second album with newly recorded vocals by Mark Lanegan, a previously unreleased instrumental "Interlude," and a remixed version of Mad Season's cover of John Lennon's "I Don't Wanna Be A Soldier".
Gato Negro is the final album by the American punk rock band 7 Year Bitch. It spawned three singles: "The History Of My Future," "24,900 Miles Per Hour" and "Miss Understood". Some songs even got melodies of the grunge sound of the '90s, while the album is still punk dominated.
Gato Negro is available as a limited edition of 500 individually numbered copies on moss green vinyl.
