Interview with Mike Lock from BEYOND DISHONOR @beyonddishonor @beyondreese

beyond dishonor

Trenton, NJ’s Beyond Dishonor are a 5-piece playing some pretty brutal stuff, but they also seem to have quite a sense of humor about them. Their Facebook page looks like metalheads dream, with plenty of show announcements, links to some heavy jams, and all the while peppered with what looks to be some mighty fun gags.

Svaha cover high res

New York City 4-piece Resolution15 play thrash inspired hardcore metal with a violin… THAT is frickin’ awesome! Seriously… Check THIS SHIT out! If you like metal and can’t get into that, I don’t know if there’s any hope for you, but I digress…

Interview with Peter Ewen from Polaris Rose; At @SXSW right now as a duo! @polarisrose

Los Angeles, California’s Polaris Rose currently in Austin, Texas for SXSW as a duo, and it looks like I have to block off some time to catch them perform. Upon my very first listen to “Chartreuse,” the opening cut off of their self-titled EP, I was immediately impressed when their indie-pop- soulful-swagger hit my headphones. Polaris Rose bring an easy, ear-pleasing listen for anyone looking to catch up with some worthy upstarts.

Boston, Massachusetts sextet Mellow Bravo are making their way to SXSW this week, along with just about every other band hellbent on making their mark in the music industry. Steeped in the Rock n Roll sound and attitude, Mellow Bravo’s spirited approach will suit anyone who wants some straight forward ragers nicely. Check out this great video for their track RIDIN’ and judge for yourself.

Introduced by another band, The Lights Out, who I spoke with here on Live High Five a little while ago, I caught up with bassist/vocalist Seager Tennis via FB Chat (of all places) and got the skinny on who Mellow Bravo is, what they’re doing, and where they’re playing in Austin during SXSW!

Oh boy… I’ve been here before. Boston, Massachusetts 5-piece The Venetia Fair’s social media reads “Hanging out with us is probably more aggravating than anything else, but I think we’re all best friends. If we actually were 12 years old, we’d be in a secret club and have an awesome fort.” Sometimes you just know you’re in for an experience.
