The Creative Process Podcast – Ep. 1: Buzz Osborne of The Melvins

the melvins

New album, A Walk With Love And Death, is out July 7th via Ipecac Recordings.

Simply put, The Melvins are legends. Since forming in 1983 in Montesano, Washington they have released an astounding 25 studio albums with a 26th, A Walk With Love and Death, due on 7th July. Pioneers in both sludge metal and alternative rock they have influenced everyone from Nirvana to Tool to ISIS (the band) to Mastodon. I recently spoke to Buzz Osborne, vocalist and guitarist with the Melvins, about how his creative process is like wading through crap and just what he thinks of constructive criticism.
