Steven Aanonson Despite the genre rift between the two acts (Melvins being sludgy crust-punk and Lustmord working the ambient- drone angle) they manage to play off each other spectacularly, as evidenced by the 22 minute mammoth of a title track. Definitely one of the better collabs of the decade. Favorite track: Pigs of the Roman Empire.

Andrew Pearson "Pink Bat" is, without a doubt, one of the best songs ever put to tape, even with the Japanoisy introduction. And indeed, several other bits of the album live up to its rabid hype! (not least among which is "Pigs of the Roman Empire," nor "The Bloated Pope" nor "Idolatrous Apostate.") I have to say, I enjoyed it more upon repeated exposure than I did "Hostile Ambient Takeover," but that's me. BRING THE NOISE!!!!!!!!!! Favorite track: Pink Bat.
