ABSOLUTExclusive: Aaron Rothe

Posted by - 06:30 AM on 10/26/12
Following successful stints with Drop Dead, Gorgeous and Sonny Moore, keyboardist Aaron Rothe began working on solo material. His long-awaited debut, The Freaks EP, will be released on October 31st. The Halloween release is appropriate, as the music sounds like Lady Gaga and Marilyn Manson had a baby. Don't believe me? Stream the first track, "Freaks," on his AP.net profile.

I'm pretty sure he was in this band before, right? I'm not sure what to expect.

Aaron is cool, but I don't like it. It sounds way too boring, like a pop industrial kind of thing. He has a great voice though, can't take that away from him. Reminds me of Cove Reber.

Indeed he was (didn't you read the post?!), but this is totally different. I do miss DDG though.

Was never a fan of DDG, but after he left he released a few solo songs which I really liked. They were pretty plain and simple; just him and a guitar, or him and playing piano, and he was singing his heart out. I really liked those songs. With this one, I definitely like he took a poppy approach, but it just doesn't feel right.. seems something is missing. I don't know what.

I can't think of many bands I found more annoying than DDG back in the "screamo" days.
