Melvins Double Feature:

The Colossus Of Destiny: A Melvins Tale A 2016 documentary directed by GIMME DJ Bob Hannam, The Colossus Of Destiny – A Melvins Tale is a film about a band who have defied all the rules, for over three decades and counting, and still managed to succeed and do it their own way. Witness first hand the beliefs and attitudes, values and obscenities, slows and fasts, triumphs and toils, loves and hates, and wits and giggles of a hugely talented and highly influential band. Hear what the countless number of peers, collaborators, understudies, admirers, even haters, have to say about their encounters with The Melvins along the way and come away with a lesson in how to survive in the wicked world of the music biz without taking yourself too damn seriously.

Melvins Live Show at the Roseland Theater in PortlandVortex said it best, “On the fourth night of their fall tour, Melvins’ Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover alongside bassist Jeff Pinkus were an absolute powerhouse trio from beginning to end… their approach was heavy and relentless as they played a nonstop, fourteen-song set.” Tune in tonight, Friday, December 11 at 9:00pm EST / 6:00pm PST and see why, even after all these years, the Melvins still got it!

Upcoming on GIMME METAL:

Serpent Omega Guest DJ Special – Melding sludge, doom, metal, and crust into a unique and sordid brew, Sweden-based Serpent Omega’s self-titled debut full-length sold out in a few short months back in 2013. The long-awaited sequel, appropriately titled II was recently released via Icons Creating Evil Art. To suggest the final product is grotesquely heavy and good is an understatement. With II, the quartet offers a perfect soundtrack to what may well be the end of the world as we know it. It’s all here: despair, hopelessness, fury, and perhaps a glimmer of bloody triumph and distant hope in the inevitability of a new beginning. Join vocalist Urskogr and guitarist Jonsson for a very special guest DJ special. The pair will also be hanging out in the chat. Don’t miss it!

Khemmis Guest DJ Special – When Khemmis released their Hunted LP in 2016, the Denver band turned plenty of heads with their perfect fusion of Iron Maiden-esque harmonies and crushing doom riffs, landing on Decibel’s Top 40 Albums Of The Year list among so many others. Now, the GIMME METAL Vinyl Club offers up an exclusive clear/splatter edition of the crushing release along with a bonus enamel Khemmis pin for good measure! Go to THIS LOCATION for further info. In conjunction with this month’s vinyl pick, GIMME is pleased to welcome the band’s Ben Hutcherson for another guest DJ appearance!

Autopsy Guest DJ Special – Autopsy formed in 1987 in San Francisco, and was among the early breed of death metal bands to emerge, releasing four albums on Peaceville before disbanding in 1995. After a fifteen-year hiatus, Autopsy officially returned from the grave with the 2010’s The Tomb Within EP. This was followed by the release of the band’s fifth studio album, Macabre Eternal one year later, spearheading a resurgence of the legends with multiple subsequent albums and EPs. Autopsy recently released Live in Chicago, their first ever official live album. Recorded at Reggie’s Rock Club March 7th, 2020, the record boasts 66 minutes of classics spanning the band’s 30+ year career. Live in Chicago also includes brand new track “Maggots In The Mirror,” giving fans something to chew on while the impending next studio release takes shape. In the meantime, GIMME welcomes co-founding vocalist/drummer Chris Reifert for a guest DJ takeover!
