Adelitas Way - Adelitas Way (2009) ☠

Country: U.S.A.
Genre: Post Grunge
Label Number: 509992 65760 2 2
☠: Selected by Lass

AllMusic Review by James Christopher Monger
Las Vegas-based Adelitas Way's polished, chrome-laden modern rock draws its water from the same angsty, aggro-well as bands like Hinder, Godsmack, Burn Halo, Avenged Sevenfold, and Three Days Grace. Bolstered by the admittedly infectious single "Invincible," which wound its way onto the pop culture carousel through TV as the theme song for the weekly World Wrestling Entertainment Superstars show, the band's eponymous debut sizzles with rage, sex, and regret, occasionally veering into "pick yourself up and dust off your coat"-style self-improvement. Founder and lead singer Rick DeJesus sports a familiar, even-handed set of pipes that can go from full-throated metalcore scream to emo crooning at the drop of a needle, and the band kicks up enough noise to satisfy even the most dogmatic hard rock junkie, but Adelitas Way's focus is clearly on the commercial side of success, not the artistic, resulting in what feels more like a calling card than a lightning strike.

  1. @ Angel dead - before you post your usual thank you, just say "thank you Lass" or whoever posted the link. There's no need for the "by". It makes you look illiterate. I may be shot down in flames or this may be deleted but it had to be said!

    1. That profile and it's associated profiles have been banned permanently by our bot. If I read our Spam bot's analysis correctly, the illiteracy, the random characters, the fact that the profile "Angel Dead" would later re-comment again as "anonymous" with the same bizarre patterns on the same posts on the same day, lead the bot to investage the activity. The first red flag was the sheer volume and output by both profiles. Case and point, it was determined by our bot that it was bot activity and that profile will never be seen here again.
