Acey Slade & the Dark Party - Acey Slade & the Dark Party

New York-based musician Acey Slade is trying to make a name for himself as a solo-artist after stints with glam rockers The Murderdolls and metallers Dope - 'The Dark Party' is his debut release with his band of the same name.

This is pretty much a one-man project (until it comes to the live shows), and comes across as a great mix of rock and electronica music, with goth elements thrown in the mix in places.
The songs are all pretty strong, from the commercial 'Sugarcum' to the harder edged 'Coming Down'. Other stand out tracks include 'She Brings Down The Moon', 'Spiders In A Snowglobe and 'Plastic Lego Queen'.

This is a great album and if bands like Plastic Toys float your boat then you're sure to love this album!

Rating 9/10
