The Cover – For some people it is the cover of an album that draws them in. The cover of Maylene and the Sons of Disaster’s album “IV” is very retro, and clever. Not a fan of the creepy, dirty band members on the cover, but it resembles an old record cover. It even comes complete with the faded look and worn circular pattern.
The Music – Maylene and the Sons of Disaster fall into the hard rock category from the very first musical note. Honestly, I’ve never heard of this band, but their music is tight and their lyrics are easy to understand. The lead singer, Dallas Taylor, has a very pleasing and intriguing voice. There are no boring songs here.
My Honest Opinion – If you like real rock music, with an edge, I highly recommend that you check out this newest album from Alabama’s Maylene and the Sons of Disaster. My favorite song is the opening track, “In Dead We Dream.” But, all twelve songs are definitely worth a listen… or two, or three….
