Dredg - The Pariah, The Parrot, The Delusion

2009. USA
Progressive Rock/Alternative Rock

Dredg is an interesting very melodic prog/alternative rock band from California, USA. They have an amazing ability to write songs and take them to life through the intelligent use of melody. Very good grooving and mind-blowing guitarwork by both singer Gavin Hayes and guitarist Mark Engles (including lap-steel guitar) make the footprint of the band. 

After succesful begginings with Universal by their hand the band decided to move onto more independent kind-of record labels. Their latest album The Pariah, The Parrot, The Delusion continues to dig the band's own style with quality melody commanding the boat, meaning it may differ in some aspects from their previous efforts, but their natural sound just remains untouched, even enhanced to a new level.

The album songs could be classified into two groups: The first, composed by the core 4-6 minute songs, heart-driven, from the epic to the uplifting to the emotional and so on. Anyhow impressively well-written tunes. The second, the various interludes including the Stamp Of Origin passages, helping the way through and giving the album another dimension. After giving the album some listens they result as necessary as the other, they are gorgeous, inspiring and entertaining.


  • The Pariah: "Ohhhhh Delusion..." The kind of chorus that will goosebumps your soul, epic tune.
  • I Don't Know: The chant of the agnostic, profound themed song impulsed by dredg's collosal melody composing.
  • Drunk Slide: Groovy stunning instrumental track. Love the xylophone.
