Editorial Reviews

On their their brilliantly upsized sophomore release, MAYLENE AND THE SONS OF DISASTER expound on the true tales of 1920's gangster Ma Barker and her prohibition era real-life crime family, pushing the ingredients from their critically acclaimed, self-titled debut toward a more complex assault. Running wild with a monolithic three guitar assault and a metronomic rhythm section, MAYLENE's hit men unleash furious fire, while lead kingpin Dallas Taylor's (ex-UNDEROATH) salty rock croon and smoky bar room swagger dispatches gripping lyrical lore with a wholly original, powerful narrative delivery. These young guns will hit the road in support of "II" for the whole of 2007, starting with a two-month tour along side Haste The Day and From Autumn To Ashes. They be moving city to city, hideout to hideout, to spread the word: MAYLENE AND THE SONS OF DISASTER is not only one of heavy music's most exciting new bands, it's an attitude. ROCKS LIKE: Pantera, Lynyrd Skynyrd, He Is Legend, Mastodon, Underoath, Willie Nelson.

Usually I find myself having to make excuses and giving the old "I'll let it grow on me" response when it comes to sophomoric efforts. However, with Maylene and the Sons of Disaster's "II", this is not the case. Putting this album in is like slipping into a pair of comfortable shoes--"Memories of the Grove" kicks off the journey by taking you down a familiar road paved with gritty southern rock and hardcore melody peppered with Dallas Taylors's coarse vocals.

The band has made a conscious effort to change their chemistry with varied guitar rhythms and solid song structure (for example: "I'll take back everything if you stand by my side"-- the chorus in "Dry the River".) Some riffs come off as sounding very "country", yet gritty and unrefined, which makes for a very good potion. Often times, the mention of something new scares away potential long-time fans and angers fanboys, but Maylene pulls the right punches unlike some groups can. One notable change, "Tale of the Runaways", is a soft/slow ballad that will hopefully warrant the band more critical acclaim and recognition than they have received in the past and may act as a segue to mainstream radio.

After a steady stream of tough as rocks attitude and mud drenched rock the album closes with "The Day Hell Broke Loose At Sicard Hollow"--an instrumental piece that fans of the debut self titled will find very familiar (Hint: "Just Wanted to Make Mother Proud").

Still intact are the fresh and southern fried lyrics that hooked us in the first time around. Dallas's belts with southern swag, "I've covered this country far and wide, though I'll always be a son of the South" in "Raised by the Tide".

Who would have thought that Southern Rock could get so heavy and insane with catchy pounding goodness? It almost takes a step towards classic rock and then at the last second it's all like "Hey, I'm gonna rip your face off instead."

Good answer. Awesome album. Buy it.

I bought this CD on a whim at my local Hot Topic store. I was listening to random music at the listening booth and I came upon this CD. Never heard of the band before in my life but I started listening. Hardcore.... but something different about it. I couldn't put my finger on it at the time, but I liked it a lot. Since I already knew I liked it, and for $9.99, I couldn't really go wrong so I bought it. It was the following day when I realized why the CD was unusual.... it was Hardcore southern rock... like Lynyrd Skynard crossed with Comeback Kid. Its really pretty unusual and quite good. I really enjoy the guitar riffs and vocals.

My only complaint is that some of the songs can drone on and sound the same sometimes.

Sweet sweet Southern Hardcore.

After getting into this bands first release I was amped to get their second album. On the very first listen i was EXTREMELY dissapointed, I went half-way through and had to take it out. A couple weeks later i decided to give it another go, this time i started to recognize what was good and what drew me away from this band. It's simple, these guys tried to be more true to their southern roots and took out a lot of things that made them stand out. They are just another Southern rock band with slightly heavy vocals now. Dallas is an amazing vacalist, even on this album i dug most of it but it fails in comparison to his dirty and sometimes outright CRAZY screaming on their first album. Who knows, maybe this album will grow on me. Definatly worth a listen if your really into southern rock, as for old maylene fans like myself its a hit or miss. 3/5 stars.

This album is Maylene's continued honing in on Southern Hardcore. I think this album isn't either improvement or degradation from their first, which is to say that this album is well done. It's just a clear advance in how they interpret Southern style and rhythm. The Southern parts have been more strongly integrated into Maylene's hardcore style. There were parts in the previous album that sounded distinctly Southern (like the intro to "Tough As John Jacobs), and others that were more hardcore (like "Caution" and the intro to "Road to Panther Creek"). However, with this album, everything sounds like even parts Southern and Hardcore through and through.

Maylene is now my most listened-to band.
