Maylene & The Sons of Disaster

Southern rock lives on in the grooves of Alabama’s Maylene & the Sons of Disaster -- country-fried like Skynyrd and the Allmans, and plenty battered with metalcore and hard rock so it’ll stick right to your guts. Those heavy textures come from frontman Dallas Taylor’s past as frontman for metalcore heroes Underoath. Taylor split from Underoath under less-than-friendly circumstances back in 2003; he formed Maylene a year later, and since then the quintet has issued three albums, their latest imaginatively titled III. After six years, the band has cultivated a look straight out of Deliverance and perfected the art of sounding like the beer-soaked party on the infield of a NASCAR track and the brutal crashes happening on the track at the same time. Righteous. With For Today, Blessed By Broken Heart, A Plea For Purging, The Color Morale, The Crimson Armada, I The Breather, The Great Commission, In The Midst Of Lions, Hundredth.
