Saosin/Maylene and the Sons of Disaster
Before the writing of this article, I was under the impression I had just about everything I needed in life in order to have a fulfilling existence, but apparently that was not actually the case. According to the Internet, the one thing that was missing was listening to Lil’ Wayne vocals remixed with Saosin guitar shredding. Clearly, there’s no reason to continue living once you’ve experienced such a thing. Despite the real life face-palm I did at that, I really do love the Saosin boys. The homegrown Orange County rockers can destroy a stage like nobody’s business, with all five members having mastered the art of making big-effin’-rock on their respective instruments. A definitive example of a band being so much greater than just the sum of its parts, the fivesome manage to cohesively bring their monstrous instruments together for some truly epic melodic rock. While Saosin have seen their share of love in past Frequency columns, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster are relative newcomers to these pages. Re-injecting the badassery in southern rock, the Alabama fivesome can evoke the darker undertones of modern metal while maintaining the party rock vibe of decades past. Equally as big-sounding and anthemic as their tour mates, the gritty thrashers’ music begs to be yelled and drank along to with nothing but reckless abandon. As if there’s any other way to do it though, really. - Brien Overly
