Join us for an insightful conversation with Shan Dan Horan. President of Artery Recordings, and an all around accomplished gentleman. Shan Dan helps us shine some light on today’s recording industry, shares stories of his life and career in the music business, and has a few laughs with us.
Join us for a conversation with Zac Sawyer of Sawyer Family. A truly unique, stand out band hailing from the Pacific Northwest. Sawyer Family bring a haunting, dynamic, one of a kind approach to modern music. We were lucky enough to see them perform in one of our local haunts a little over a year ago, and have been fans ever since. Not only have these talented artists managed to create a sound all their own, they also have a commanding stage presence you will never forget. Zac takes some time out to talk with us about all manner of things, including what in our opinion is one of the funniest and most entertaining gig stories ever.
What do you get when you take precision, passion, heart and make it metal? Dreamshade. Honest Brutality had the opportunity to speak with Fernando “Fella” Di Cicco and Gian-Andrea Costa, who enlighten us to the European heart of metal fused with notorious Swiss exactitude behind their newest album “Vibrant”. Fall down the rabbit hole with us as we discuss the struggles of international touring, getting away from the “standards” of music, and much more.
Get to know Jeremy “JT” Tollas of Famous Last Words with us. Jeremy took some time recently to talk with the Honest Brutality crew about growing up, life on the road, life at home, his band Famous Last Words, and their new album “The Incubus“. This is the third full length concept album from Famous Last Words, and one you should definitely have in your collection. Join us for some laughs, some insight, and a great conversation with JT.
Every now and then you meet people who change your perception, and quite possibly your life. We were lucky enough to have such an experience this year at the Monster Energy Drink Aftershock Festival media tent when we met, hung out with and had a conversation with Brandon Mendenhall and Mike Lira of The Mendenhall Experiment. After watching their set on the main stage, we headed in and met the band. This group of young men had been working their asses off all weekend in the media area, and the experience was nothing short of amazing. Brandon Mendenhall has spent his life pursuing his passion and dream of becoming a musician all while living with Cerebral Palsy. Our time with them left us all feeling introspective, thankful, and grateful we had this amazing opportunity. We can’t wait for our follow up conversation coming soon. We will also be collaborating with the band very soon in a charity auction event. Please take some time to listen to their story, their awesome music, and support them.HBMNDNHL download

Join us for a conversation with Ashes In The Sky. A killer metal act from Long Island that blew us away the first time we heard them.
