Album Review

Madina Lake's second album is produced by David Bendeth, the same man who helped turn Paramore's Riot! into one of the most popular emo-pop albums of 2007. While Paramore's album melded big, bright choruses with teenaged angst, the boys in Madina Lake prefer a darker blend of electronic flourishes and anxious, brittle rock. They also pepper their music with futuristic story lines, although the fictional town that inspired much of the band's debut is largely absent from this sophomore effort. Instead, Attics to Eden takes up residence in the intersection of post-grunge and emo-inspired rock.

Madina Lake... a New Zealand Students view

We have all heard of twins starting bands, Benji and Joel, Veronica and Veronica, well there is another band that you can add to the list of twins in a band, Madina Lake. But these twins are no ordinary twins, if you are an avid Fear Factor spectator; you may remember a twin’s episode. Nathan and Matt Leone won Twin Fear Factor and put their US$50,000 towards Madina Lake making an EP. Madina Lake comes to you straight out of Chicago Illinois. The twins Nathan (vox) and Matt (Bass), joined forces with guitarist and backup vocalist Mateo Camargo and drummer Dan Torelli. Madina Lake uses to be 2 separate bands; the twins were in a band called The Blank Theory, while Mateo and Dan were in another band Reforma. These guys then joined the ranks of bands such as Velvet Revolver and Audioslave, where they broke up the bands that they were originally in and morphed into the band that you have today. Madina Lakes sound is somewhat different to what the mainstreamers may be use to, and definitely different to the other bands on the Roadrunner Record Label (Roadrunner brings you such bands as Slipknot, Fear Factory, Sepultura and Within Temptation). Their sound is more of an electro pop punk feel, the use of distorted guitars, fast drumming and impressive lyrics really will get you into this band. Madina Lake have only released two full studio albums, From Them, Through Us, To You was released in 2007, even thought this was their first studio album, the sound that you get makes these guys sound like seasoned veterans, so with that album under my belt, I couldn’t wait for album number 2 to finally come out. 2 years later and the wait was finally over with the second album Attics to Eden, like the boys from Green Day I was expecting big things from this album, the pop punk sound that their first album produced, just needed to be recreated and morphed in this album for me to absolutely love it. Attics to Eden has shown that the band has matured in the 2 years between albums, even going as far as to say that their lyrics are a “psychological refuge from today’s intense fast paced world”, but were they right? With lyrics like that in the song Never Take Us Alive, maybe they have, I like what I am hearing so it’s all-good, and I am pretty sure that all you readers/ listeners out their will enjoy this album. Songs I enjoyed on this album include; Never Take Us Alive, Criminals, and Never Walk alone. Madina Lake’s Attics to Eden, is a great album and would suit those of you out there that are into Lost Prophets, H.I.M, and Cute is What We Aim For.

Attics To Eden

Madina Lake's new album, Attics To Eden, has become an instant favourite of mine. Songs like Let's Get Outta Here and Legends are so catchy and upbeat. The drums will have you tapping you foot and banging your head. Its very Punk-Pop esque but I really like it that way. Now for Madina Lake to come to New Zealand . . .

Biography

Formed: 2005 in Chicago, IL

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Fusing the forceful guitars of heavy metal with crisp harmonies, electronic accents, and the melodic conceits of indie rock, Madina Lake is a conceptually ambitious group whose songs tell the stories of the imaginary community of Madina Lake, a secluded hamlet in the woods where life is much as it was in the 1950s. However, beneath the town's peaceful façade lurks a disturbing undertow that reflects the most destructive aspects of American culture, which manifest themselves in strange and unexpected...
