CD review (round two): DEAD AISLING

DEAD AISLING

CD review by Tim Fennell

I am thinking this music would fit well within the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Mastodon, Mondo Generator, or any other desert dock stoner-metal but, as we dig deeper and follow this music further down the rabbit hole, we quickly realize that we are wrong and its not quite so easy to categorize. I’m certain DEAD AISLING is trying to make exactly that point as well. The record is a concept that takes you on a ride that weaves through sludge, electronica, desert rock, goth, industrial, and I would even venture to say shoegaze. Tracks one and two pique your interest and make your head bob involuntarily, and by the time song number three, titled “Overcome the Monkey” hits the air, you will be a fan of this band. The next track “Song for a Darkened Sky” is a down shift, and I’m not so sure its the smartest follow up to the previous song, however, when the guitar joins in on top of a slow, dreary and gloomy electronic groove, I’ve got goose bumps, and I am wrong. The album mellows out for a little while and stays that way until “A Broken Body” comes on and lights it up, and showcases the band’s ability to set it on fire. As I listen to this song, over and over, I am reminded of The Misfits while I can hear an influence of Glenn Danzig. I can picture rows of fists in the air, pumping in unison, and I want to be there too. DEAD AISLING hails from glorious Bakersfield, CA, and their profile can be found at myspace.com/deadaisling. I would suggest downloading and taking a listen, and if it is for sale, buy it.
