Aiden - Some Kind Of Hate

Rating: 6

For the second time this year, Aiden are smearing on the eyeliner and thrashing out a punk album with a big bleeding gothy heart. Certainly an improvement on its underwhelming predecessor ‘Disguises’, ‘Some Kind Of Hate’ is at its best when it doesn’t take itself too seriously. Take the B-movie horror homages that run throughout: ‘Grotesque Vanity’ is punctuated by blood-curdling screams and ‘London Dungeon’ has an Alice Cooper-esque charm to it. Sadly though, the rest is a something of a same-old-same-old affair, and anyone familiar with Aiden’s output won’t be surprised to hear hackneyed poetry about thought police and voices in the head.
