First off, if you want to hear some intense rock 'n' roll
with a mix of both gruff and polished vocals and guitar check
out Lake City band, 5 Day Beginning (5DB). On Friday,
August 10, the band returns to the Metro in West Melbourne
(3220 W New Haven Ave).

This quartet rolls around in the rock 'n' roll mud
somewhere between commercial friendly music and sticky,
gritty and driving melodic-metal. Exhibit A: "Decay."
Whatever you do, don't let these guys get away without
playing this tune. Another must hear is "Pink Roses Skulls,"
a song that has something to say about sheep: "gather roundto see the show/ they all match head to toe/ and your all thatI hate/ cut along the dotted line/ everything was all inside/ isthis all to feel safe/ your all dead inside." But the best songthis band has written to date – at least that I know of – has
got to be "Eye." Hear for yourself: http://www.myspace.
com/5daybeginning

These guys are putting together a mini-caravan to truckover a bunch of Lake City rockers. So if you want to meetsome new people and hear some fresh music, go to the Metroon the 10th. As the band put it on its myspace, "This venue
is the coolest venue we play and unless you're a dumb assyou will find a way to make it." Couldn't have said it better
myself. Cost is $5, show starts at 9pm. For more info call(321)727-0170.

Recently Brevard Live asked 5DB guitarist and vocalistJeremy Hunter a few questions about the band.

Brevard Live: You guys have talked about breaking past
rock-clichés. What's special about your music?
Jeremy Hunter: Well, there are only so many notes you can
do and every song you hear is probably another song, but wetry as do most bands to put our unique twist on the music.
We focus on power and bounce; we write as a unit and it's
all about emotion, and lyrically I don't really focus on me.
I write about the way other people feel and it's easier for
people to grab a hold of, although sometimes I'll write downsome things that I'm feeling. But when people walk into aroom, even if they don't like our type of music, their head is
bouncing and then the beat is stuck in their head. And that's
what we like to do.

BL: What's the Lake City scene like?
JH: The scene is mainly hardcore and punk and it makes it
easy for us to separate ourselves from the crowd. And we
like it that way. But the scene is small. Hopefully it will keep
growing.

BL: How did you end up playing the Metro?

JH: I believe my guitarist got in contact with Brenda and she

listens to all the bands before booking them. Within like 15
seconds or so she knows whether she wants a band to play at

her venue and she liked us so. Yeah, that's it.

BL: What's the current line-up?

JH: Me-Vox/guitar, Lou-Guitar, Brandon-Bass, Shane-Drums

BL: Are you recording any new music?
JH: No recording but writing a lot of new music, musicoutside of our "box" if you will

BL: Talk about your favorite song to play live.
JH: I don't know about the rest of the guys but my favorite
is probably "Pink Roses and Skulls." The energy and power
comes out so big in that song and it's one of the few songs
that is about how I (personally) feel.

Too many melodic hard-rock bands come off as tepid pop bands dressed up with guitars, giving the genre a weak image and bad name. However, Lakeland-based 5 Day Beginning pours a healthy dose of rock 'n' roll grit and guts into its stew of rock and melody. Formed just a year ago, the band has written some truly impressive tunes. You can hear for yourself at www.myspace.com/5daybeginning. In "Pink Roses Skulls," the boys let the guitars run the show while the vocalist chaotically drifts between easy, melodic musings and gravely, anger-laden lyrics. "Gather round to see the show/ they all match head to toe/ and you're all that I hate/ cut along the dotted line/ everything was all inside/ is this all to feel safe/ you're all dead inside." Straight out of the gates, "Eye" brandishes the kind of intensity and passion rockers have grown to appreciate from model melodic-rock bands like Mudvayne. Here, the vocalist perfects the balancing act of unfurling a voice that shows off the virtue of good, emotive singing while staying true to the unmatched expression of emotion via raw, jagged screams. "Silently" comes off like a jarring, slowed-down indie-rock tune. The ferocity of other songs is extracted from the track, which the band openly acknowledges is a more radio-friendly tune. Thank goodness the tune is saved from the pitfalls of a perfectly cliché format by some driving, creative rhythm and lead guitar work, and vocals reminiscent of Zo Vizza of the now-defunct Pulse Ultra. The only question is, if the band does crawl out of the dark of independent artist obscurity, will it retain its allegiance to rock 'n' roll grit, or turn the cheek toward a watered-down sound that's drowning us on the radio? You can see the band live at 9 p.m. Saturday at The Metro in West Melbourne. Cost is $5. Contact Nall at www.MySpace.com/SpaceCoast MusicWriter or sabletide@yahoo.com.

This issue of Getting to Know… Our Artists introduces us to the band 5 Day Beginning. This group has a definitively high energy, rock sound. If you like rock that is like an energy drink for your ears, you should take a listen.
The band has been playing with the current line up for about 7 months now. The name came from a passing comment about things being “just the beginning” and evolved into the moniker 5 Day Beginning. The name was initially going to be a song title. They get their inspiration for their songs from anything that has a lot of energy, emotion and bounce. Singer Jeremy Hunter also says he is inspired by Bullet for my Valentine and Breaking Benjamin.
When asked about how they feel about the concept of a record deal being the equivalent of “making it” in the music industry, Jeremy Hunter said;
“Well, now that I have heard stories about them and bands...a little
scared...I have heard horror stories about bands that would have been great
and had things going for them but ended up owing the label so much money at
the end of the contract and things like that, but it’s what we're working
for...I mean a lot of people cal us "Radio rock" as to offend us but that’s
what we like and that’s what we write and aspire to do.”

I asked what the top 5 things one should consider when trying to make it in the music business as both an artist and a business person. Their answer showed great wit and charm, and was sincere I think. With regard to being an artist, here was the band’s advice;
“1.Find band-mates that are dedicated and who have the same goals
2.Don’t be afraid to experiment and go outside of your own box. Too many
bands label themselves before they even write one song and then that’s the
type of music they have to play
3.Make sure to have good equipment...so tired of hearing bands with poop
equipment
4.Play and write music that makes you happy but also that complements your
goals
5.Realize it’s hard work and it won’t happen overnight.”
As for the business advice, here is what they offered regarding that topic;
“1.Find something that is catchy and fresh
2.Making contacts and networking (also an artist should too, I guess)
3.Image is sadly important
4.BEING DEDICATED
5....not sure IM AN ARTIST... (laughs).”
The band has left us with these compelling parting words, “Stay away from moving vehicles.....and eat your vegetables!!!!”

Too many melodic hard-rock bands come off as tepid pop bands dressed up with guitars, giving the genre a weak image and bad name. However, Lakecity-based 5 Day Beginning pours a healthy dose of rock ’n’ roll grit and guts into its stew of rock and melody. Formed just a year ago, the band has written some truly impressive tunes.

5dB is band that is seperating itself from the mold by writing songs that are catchy,hard-hitting and passionate. Formed in 2006, the band began writing and trying to find thier sound. After a few line up changes the band was completed and Jeremy (Vocals and Guitar), Lou (Guitar), Brandon (Bass), Shane (Drums) began fine tunning thier mix of commercial friendly music and sticky, gritty and driving melodic-metal. 5dB writes and plays with inensity and bounce, "The key is to have people bouncing to our music right when they walk into the room" stated the Lou (Guitarist). With screamo/hardcore and all in between being the current flavor of the week, 5dB feels it"s a great time to be the kind of band that they are. "People are wanting something new and fresh. The current scene is all the same, all the bands wearing chic pants and playing the same music." says Jeremy (Vocals). When you combine the Raw Melodic sounds of Lou’s guitar riff’s, and the driving and weaving bass lines from Brandon, the big, loud, and groove-oriented drums from Shane and the ripping vocals and accompanying guitar of Jeremy’s, you get what 5dB represents....Power, Bounce and Emotion with lots of intenseity." Straight out of the gates, "Eye" brandishes the kind of intensity and passion rockers have grown to appreciate from model melodic-rock bands like Mudvayne. Here, the vocalist perfects the balancing act of unfurling a voice that shows off the virtue of good, emotive singing while staying true to the unmatched expression of emotion via raw, jagged screams." (Jeff Nall-Florida Today). 5dB is already began to slowly but surely conquer and leave nothing but jaws on the floors where ever they go. The song "EyE" made www.epictunes.com "Track Of The Week". Receiving air-play on WRUF’s Rock 104’s "Locals Only" and "Dark Cloud Radio" (An independent online radio station that plays both signed and unsigned bands). A killer review by Jeff Nall of Florida Today.com, and article in "Brevard Live" ( A Local Melbourne Magaizine). 5dB is a band on the verge.....ready to devour and conquer anything in it’s way......Either get on or move out of the way!
