Features "Revolve", "At The Stake" and "Queen"!
The true gods of the stoner underground music, the Melvins, released their album Stoner Witch in 1994. The album is one of their most successful efforts and one where their musical capacities can be heard in depth in the powerful and experimental sounds. It melds the sound of their earlier records with some ambient and hardcore influenced tracks. The monster anthem "Revolve" is a true masterpiece that breathes southern rock and has a handful of well crafted riffs. Another epic track and one of the best recordings by the Melvins is "At the Stake". The droning riffs and bass/cymbal driven sounds are mind-blowing and it's full of fantastic changes. "Queen" is a much more radio friendly approach, but even in this song you'll feel the traditional Melvins sound.
The 1983-formed Melvins can be classified as one of the most versatile bands. They recorded albums which included the influences from blues, pop, metal, rock, grunge and doom music. Even now they're still performing and recording music like there's no time to waste.
"The early to mid-'90s proved the Melvins' golden age, and the three principal albums from that period -- Stoner Witch provides the centerpiece -- are virtually unassailable in their range, depth, power, and experimental courage. Picking up on the basic framework of Houdini, Stoner Witch resolves into an ear-catching workup of classic rock themes, tempered, of course, with a fairly judicious sampling of acid-trip detours. Where Houdini resided more in an expansive -- though lugubriously heavy -- metal vein, refining the techniques built up through the band's early struggles, Stoner Witch truly showcases the band at the apex of their wide-ranging creative abilities." - AllMusic
