Post-metal, post-industrial, and post-grunge before there was grunge, Melvins are among the most advanced and most challenging of underground artists. The Colossus of Destiny is a two-track escapade of live, noisy experimentation. More like avant-garde electro-acoustic than anything else, this abrasive collage of bleeps and samples is the segment of Melvins' live shows that sends the merely curious out of the room and draw the dedicated close to the stage.
