Electroretard is an album by the Melvins, which was released in 2001 through Man's Ruin Records. The album contains an experiment in backmasking ("Shit Storm"), three covers and four reworked versions of old Melvins songs. Though released on CD, it was going to see an LP release, but Man's Ruin closed beforehand. Electroretard will be packaged with "The Bulls & the Bees" in June 2015 via Ipecac Recordings with a vinyl issue to follow.
