Melvins

Melvins was founded in 1984 in Seattle as a Alternative Metal and Grunge Music group. For 1988, the band Nirvana and many other Seattle-area bands, the Melvins' sludge was inspirational; the younger bands took the Black Sabbath-styled heaviness of the Melvins, while adding an equally important pop song structure, which the group tended to lack. While all of their disciples became famous after Nirvana broke big in 1991 (including Mudhoney, who featured former Melvins bassist, Matt Lukin[?]), the Melvins only expanded their cult slightly. In addition to their Melvins activities, Buzz Osbourne[?] joined Mike Patton (and former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo[?] and Mr. Bungle[?] bassist Trevor Dunn[?]) for the experimental outfit Fantômas, resulting in a pair of releases thus far (1999's Fantômas[?] debut and 2001's The Director's Cut[?]), while the Melvins' latest bassist, Kevin Rutmanis[?], joined Mike Patton in another side project, Tomahawk[?].
