The Melvins coalesced as a band in 1983 in Montesano, Washington, at the base of the Olympic Peninsula. They influenced the sludge and drone subgenres, including Nirvana, and were themselves influenced by Black Flag's mix of punk and metal on their album "My War," and other slow punk acts like Swans, Flipper and Wipers.
