Melvins + Lustmord
Pigs of the Roman Empire (IPECAC)

By: Mike SOS

Underground kings of rock meet legendary noise terrorist for eight tracks of unabashed skull crushing. That's what the headline reads for the release of the latest project between The Melvins and Lustmord, an unlikely combination on paper that bares stunning results. Just when you thought the grunge-rock feel of King Buzzo's crew couldn't be enhanced, enter ex-Throbbing Gristle collaborator Lustmord to the fold, who puts his creepy electronic spin on tracks like "Safety Third" and "The Bloated Pope" like a chef garnishes a fine meal. While, thanks to the programming genius of Lustmord, there's a lot of ambient spaces throughout the duration of Pigs of the Roman Empire, but it's a welcomed addition and daresay a time to rest up before the metallic maelstrom that is The Melvins churn out another noise rock classic like "Pink Bat".
