III [edit]
by Maylene and The Sons of Disaster | Genre: Hard Rock/Metal | Release Date: June 23, 2009

Every Southern town has its legend's, men long since deceased seen walking at midnight through marshy mists, things not quite human at all lurking even in daylight, shaded by Spanish moss. Some of those legends, though, are mostly true, and Ocala, Florida, has the last stand of gangster masterminds, Ma Barker and sons. Three-quarters of a century later, the sons are back, and raging out their tale of divine justice.

Maylene and the Sons of Disaster are: Dallas Taylor (ex-Underoath, vocals), Roman Havaland (bass, backing vocals), Chad Huff (guitar), Kelly Scott Nunn (guitar), and Matt Clark (drums). Their eponymous debut, released in 2005, ignited a tumult of touring, including the 2006 Vans Warped Tour and spots alongside P.O.D., Throwdown, and Zao. The stakes were raised when the Sons were one of APís Bands You Need to Know for 2007, and named one of Metal Hammerís Hot 100:Metals Most Important Troops for 2007. Their sophomore release, II (FerretMusic), didnít disappoint. The record is critically acclaimed and the public agreed; to date, II has scanned over 40,000. Since then, the Sons have been seemingly unstoppable, tearing through cities alongside fellow madmen like A Static Lullaby, Clutch, From Autumn to Ashes, and Norma Jean, and opening fire on Warped Tour stages for two more summers.

III surges forward with as much savage twang and fearsome melody to inspire the wrath of any just god. Itís a barrage of crunch and stomp, a tirade of licks and rapid-fire snares. Whatever your hometown legends, whether you remember Ma Barker or not, you can be sure her sons are back for vengeance, and theyíre coming for you.

4.5/5 | Posted September 24, 2011
Maylene and the Sons of Disaster's III continues their trend of awesome sounding southern metal music and it also gives us a bit of change, essentially a preview of what is to come.  Fans of the previous albums will enjoy this album as well as it contains everything they like, the harsh metal with a southern twang, Dallas Taylor's harsh scream, and a whole lot of southern attitude.  

The changes here are mostly subtle with some songs just being straight forward hard rock.  It's a refreshing change and provides a break in amidst the chaos.  

III has everything that any Maylene album has and more.  Some tracks drop the screams and sound like normal hard rock songs and the final track is an instrumental that ends everything on a melancholy tone.  This album has got me excited for what Maylene can bring to the table with the upcoming IV.
