About

The pioneers of sludge rock Melvins, one of the most iconic American bands of all time, with 40 years of continuous presence on the music scene, are coming to Athens to give us the most important live show of the summer!


The Melvins are one of the most influential bands in modern music. Formed in 1983 led by singer/guitarist Buzz Osborne and based in Montesano, Washington. They combine with great mastery, punk rock and heavy music, forming a new subgenre in itself. They belong to the school of musicians who do not limit their sound and dare, with comfort and success, to move in various genres, such as grunge, stoner, sludge, doom metal, hardcore punk and alternative rock. During the band's nearly 40-year history, with Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover still its mainstays, the Melvins have released over 25 albums, numerous EP's, live albums, singles and rarities. They paved the way and were a source of inspiration for most bands in the Seattle grunge scene, such as Nirvana, Soundgarden and Mudhoney. It is worth noting that the Melvins were one of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's favorite bands, while Tool's Adam Jones - an old Melvins fan - referred to them in a 1994 interview as the inventors of grunge.

They recently released the 36-track acoustic compilation, "Five Legged Dog," featuring re-runs of some of their heaviest songs, as well as covers by favorite artists. Over the course of their discography, the Melvins have collaborated with Jello Biafra, Mudhoney and Fantômas and toured the world numerous times.
