90’s Grunge/Rock Band Alice In Chains releases new album “Rainier Fog”

On August 24th, Alice In Chains released a new album in succession to their latest album from 2013: The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here. Now their newest achievement hosts a new hit single “The One You Know.” This album contains 10 songs and is now a part of the band’s North American tour, which has just been extended.

Alice In Chains’ flair for that old fashioned dirty sound has not withered through the years, even after losing member Layne Staley some time ago. The impression their music leaves is an attempt to be saved in a world where you aren’t the only one drowning, the melody being the water and the lyrics- such as “Lay me out with our guilt
Watch the explosions fall, rain
Cannot live within this tilt
Carryin’ over I’m not the one you know”- being the weight that drags you down.

Personally, having listened to Alice In Chains all my life, the content is not at all disappointing. The quality of songs was good and this weathered band knows what they are doing after the many years they have been performing. If I had heard any of these songs without knowing they were new releases, I would have assumed them to be straight outta the 90’s. Alice In Chains is going for new and fresh sounds rather than the same ole same ole but this album just shows they have matured as a band and can still produce good content.
