The Melvins' Buzz Osborne aka King Buzzo has shared a third track from his upcoming acoustic album, This Machine Kills Artists.

"Instrument of God" starts off as a dark acoustic rocker, with layers of chugging, powerful riffs stacked up behind Buzz's oddball vocals. The track splits off halfway through for a slow-strummed breakdown and outro, but the heavy rock impact remains. Like other Buzzo acoustic tracks we've heard, the unadorned shredding only serves to solidify his status as a guitar genius.

The recording process for the album didn't involve any electric guitars, DI boxes, or amplifiers. Buzz talked about his choice of instrument in a statement on SoundCloud:

I recorded most of This Machine Kills Artists with my red white and blue Buck Owens American acoustic. It's a great guitar and is pretty much irreplaceable so it's staying home for tours. It's too bad really. Maybe I can paint the Chinese one I use live red white and blue! Ha!
