Album Review

Released hot on the heels of their fifth album, Disguises, Aiden strike twice in the same year with Some Kind of Hate. The album finds the band stripping some of the metal edge of their previous release and getting back to the dark, driving punk sound that they made their name with. With all the breakdowns and chugging riffs out of the way, Aiden is back to putting their head down and charging full-bore into the darkness, which is something they do well. Some Kind of Hate also finds the band giving a nod to some of their influences with a pair of covers, with Aiden putting their own spin on the Misfits' “London Dungeon” and Joy Division’s “Transmission.” While Aiden don't stray too far from the originals musically, they do up the intensity considerably, bringing the classic bands into the energy drink era with a snarl, while still feeling like they’re paying tribute to the people who paved the way for them. If Disguises was Aiden trying to branch out a bit to snare some new fans, Some Kind of Hate is an album that is definitely a treat for old fans who will easily assure anyone who was worried about the new direction the band was going in that the old Aiden is still alive and kicking.

Customer Reviews

It's good to see them moving forward

I was worried after Disguises, this is so much better.

Thank Gandhi, so much better Disguises.

That is all. Buy this album.

a little lacking

This album is more or less what i expected it to be, a rushed to market, half assed excuse for a full album with a primary objective of ending there contractual obligation with victory records, and a secondary objective of "make sure the fans can still enjoy it". this is there 2nd album released this year and in my opinion, Disguises (the other one released this year) is much better. it is a much more complete record that i thought set a new benchmark for Aiden that all of there forthcoming work from here on should be judged by. some kind of hate does not come very close at all to matching that benchmark. the album art is pitiful, i dont see how it has anything to do with anything. and really, theres only 4 songs on it that are worthy of being on an Aiden album (the first 3 and the 5th the 2 cover songs dont count but they are pretty decent.) if you like Aiden, buy it, (just dont expect Disguises pt.2 its more like Disguises: the leftovers)

Biography

Formed: 2003 in Seattle, WA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Hailing from rainy Seattle, Aiden combine post-hardcore and punk attitudes with gothic aesthetics and a love of all things horror (not to mention, of course, the Misfits) to create surging, darkly melodic music. Aiden formed in the spring of 2003 while the bandmembers were still in high school, taking their name from the young ghost-seeing boy in the 2002 horror flick The Ring. A few lineup changes occurred early on; the quintet — Nick Wiggins (bass), Jake Davison (drums), Angel Ibarra (guitar),...
