On the Lips of Disaster (self-released)
By: Mike SOS
Aleda is a NYC-based quartet whose five-track EP contains heaping dollops of smart rock that combines the art of Stone Temple Pilots, the dissonance of Deftones and the grooves of King's X. Not only do songs like "The Weight" smack you in the face with its pulsating wall of guitars, but the raw emotion behind tracks like "Fifty Dollars at a Time" suggests that this band has a lot of displaced aggression which it productively places within spurts of its songs, making the overall disc an extremely dynamic listen. Brace yourself when putting this one in the CD player, as the bumpy ride will leave you roughed up but ultimately satisfied.
