If there was a genre of music called Alabama beard metal, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster would be the forerunners of it. These Birmingham, Alabama native have created a band based on the concept of the backwoods story of Ma Barker and her sons. MATSOD have their tongues firmly placed in their cheeks and don’t appear to take themselves too seriously. This was evident when the band opened their July 21st show at The Masquerade with Hamilton,Joe Frank and Reynolds singing the 70s hit , Fallin in Love.
Dallas Taylor got in the faces of zealous fans with his metal vocals backed by a band that had as many southern rock licks as a hound dog. The enthusiastic crowd filled the room to the point of density that Dallas was able to walk on top of them. They in turn dove onto his stage at one point causing a human tangle. It was nice to see so much energy exchanged between performers and fans.

Wood Brothers at The Buckhead Theatre
Fantastic time shooting the wonderfully talented Wood Brothers – This is from their Buckhead Theatre show in Atlanta.
Fear Factory at the Masquerade
Fear Factory destroyed the Masquerade on September 4th with an amazing set. Fear Factory was one of the first bands to pioneer industrial metal. It was great to see them back in Atlanta after a long absence. Fear Factory is on tour promoting their new album Genexas, which lead singer Burton made sure we pronounced correctly (ha). Their show was great and I found myself singing along while I took pictures of the band. The only thing I didn’t like was the fact I could hardly SEE the band. Once again the Masquerade didn’t bother to turn up the stage lights for the bands. This of course makes it very hard to photograph. Nonetheless, I still really enjoyed watching this band play some of my favorite tunes live like Shock, Edgecrusher, Damaged, and Demanufacture!
