Today, we shine a spotlight on the remarkable progressive rock collective, Aisles, hailing from Santiago, Chile. In this review, I delve into their latest single, "Disobedience," exploring its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Aisles first caught my attention with their debut album, "The Yearning," back in 2005. Since then, they have consistently impressed with three more albums: "In Sudden Walks" (2009), "4:45 AM" (2013), and "Hawaii" (2016), along with a collection of diverse singles and EPs. Their latest single, "Disobedience," released on July 15, 2021, demonstrates their continued growth and musical evolution.

Aisles proudly claims to be the most influential South American progressive band of the past two decades, and their music undeniably supports this assertion. Their impact extends beyond the realm of progressive rock, resonating with fans of various rock genres. One cannot help but appreciate the richness of their musical blend, which draws inspiration from jazz, fusion, progressive, and math-rock. The collective has carved out a distinct and captivating style that has earned them recognition within their communities, positioning them as worthy contenders for any rock festival worldwide.

Their latest single, "Disobedience," showcases a multitude of strengths, including its innovative approach, intricate instrumentation, energy, dynamics, and top-notch production. Upon my initial listen, I was reminded of the early Dream Theater era, while also detecting influences from virtuosos such as Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and Animals as Leaders. Such creative thinking, pushing the boundaries of convention, is a rarity in today's music landscape. The song's exhilarating energy never wavers, seamlessly delivering its message with world-class production. Throughout the composition, one can revel in the progressive marvels of jazz, fusion, and math-rock. Furthermore, the individual musicianship shines brightly within the collective, highlighting one of this band's distinctive characteristics.

The technical prowess of a song plays a crucial role in determining its fate, and Aisles, having established their musical pedigree over the years, uphold the highest standards in "Disobedience." The meticulous production is truly captivating, a testament to the exceptional work of producer Angelo Marini, Germán Vergara, mixing engineer Pepe Lastarria, and mastering engineer Randy Merrill. Their combined efforts breathe life into a composition that will undoubtedly be cherished for years to come.

When considering the entirety of their achievement, I find myself thoroughly blown away by Aisles. They stand as one of the most impressive bands to have graced Metalhead Community's radar in 2021, earning our utmost admiration with their magnificent work.

In conclusion, Metalhead Community Team congratulates Aisles for their single, Disobedience, and wishes them the very best in their future careers. Thank you for reading.
