Blistering rock-doc The Colossus Of Destiny: A Melvins Tale tells the extraordinary story of a band who have defied all the rules for over 33 years and counting — and still managed to succeed on their own terms. The film charts the journey of band members King Buzzo and Dale Crover, through rarely seen behind-the-scenes material from their early days to captivating footage from their multiple modern incarnations speaking to the enduring influence the band has had throughout their long and storied history. Throughout it all, The Melvins have overcome pitfalls that would’ve ended lesser groups with a sense of humor, a shrug and, more than anything else, a determination to continue following their muse no matter what. Don’t take our word for it, with a veritable who’s-who of musicians attesting to the influence and legacy of the band, including Mike Patton, the late Chris Cornell, Jello Biafra, Gene Simmons, Krist Novoselic, J. Mascis, Josh Homme, David Yow and many more. Capped o with truckloads of ear-bursting Melvins rock, this is mandatory viewing whether you’re a die- hard fan or simple lover of music history.

Introduced by Jack Sargeant.
