Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster - II
Now here’s an interesting bandname; Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster. This of course refers to the legendary mob family of Ma Baker, as praised in that Boney M track. For a full background story, check the site of their label. For now we are dealing with a fantastic band in heavy music, ready to rock your ass!
 
This is the band’s second effort as you probably could’ve guessed from the title. MATSOD operate between the thin lines of metal and rock, with hints of punk, stoner and Southern rock. Combined this forms an innovating steamroller that can probably get one hell of a party started. The changes in style are made very subtle, so you never get irritated by a certain difference in the amount of heaviness thrown at you. All you can do is nod your head, until it is time to headbang.
 
The album is produced very strongly with an in your face approach. It reminds me a lot of El Guapo Stuntteam’s latest release Accusation Blues, probably due to the fact that both bands have a grooving three guitar attack and use the elements of Southern rock to let a relaxed atmosphere shine throughout the album. I do feel like MATSOD has a better production on this one than those Belgium rockers though, and of course they have ex-Underoath vocalist Dallas Taylor giving his rock ‘n’ roll sound to it. The entire album basically sounds like a real good party, but it’s just as fine to kick back to. The last two tracks of the album are a very good ballad and an instrumental track that both really show a country feeling. Great closure to a marvellous record.
 
So if you’re into diverse rock ‘n’ roll music, be sure you don’t miss this one. I am very sure I will play this record every once in a while in the future, especially with those sunny days coming up soon.
