THE COLOSSUS OF DESTINY: A MELVINS TALE
The Colossus Of Destiny: A Melvins Tale is a documentary film about a band who have defied all the rules for over 33 years and counting, and still managed to succeed on their own terms. This is the journey of band members King Buzzo and Dale Crover which takes us from the backwards-waters of the Chehalis River in Washington State to the Los Angeles River Basin in southern California, with the rest of the world thrown in along the way. Witness first hand the beliefs and attitudes, values and obscenities, triumphs and toils, loves and hates, wits and giggles of a hugely talented and highly influential band. Listen to what their many peers, collaborators, understudies, admirers, even haters, have to say about their encounters with The Melvins over the past 3 decades. Featuring truckloads of ear-melting Melvins rock, A Colossus Tale is mandatory viewing.
