Melvins are Worn Down by “The Decay of Living”


Man, whether you like them or not, you gotta admit that Melvins put out cool art at an impressive rate. Less than a year since their split with Le Bucherettes last year, the band is preparing to put out a 10″ entitled War Pussy (awesome), and have released a new track from it that you can hear below.

The song’s called “The Decay of Living,” and man if it isn’t super creepy. It’s classic slow sludge mixed with a lot of psychedelic yearning and topped off with this really melancholy hollered vocals. The whole thing reminds the listener of a march through a field of smoking bodies. Thank Christ there are still bands out there making mindfuck drug music like this.

Listen to “The Decay of Living” below. The War Pussy 10″ will be available on the band’s tour with Napalm Death that kicks off next month, so make sure you attend it at one of the dates listed here.
