    The Isolation Sessions: Vol. 16 - Bryan Harris. (Death Before Dishonor)

    The Isolation Sessions: Vol. 16 - Bryan Harris. (Death Before Dishonor)

    The sixteenth in a series of podcasts during the Coronavirus pandemic. "The Isolation Sessions". My guest is Bryan Harris. Singer for Boston Hardcore band "Death Before Dishonor". I've been wanting to sit down and talk with Bryan for a while now. So, what better time than now while we can't even go to a show or even meet in person? We go back to the formation of the band, signing to "Bridge Nine Records", all of their records, line-up changes, and the future. The last time I saw "DBD" was at last year's "This Is Hardcore" Festival in Philly, and they were one of my favorite sets of the weekend. Great band, super cool guy. I hope to see them at a show sooner rather than later. As always, thank you for always listening. Support "Death Before Dishonor". Respect.

    The Isolation Sessions: Vol. 15 - Bane. (Pt. 5/5) Bobby Mahoney.

    The Isolation Sessions: Vol. 15 - Bane. (Pt. 5/5) Bobby Mahoney.

    The fifteenth in a series of podcasts during the Coronavirus pandemic. "The Isolation Sessions". Part 5 of 5 in the "Bane Series". My guest is drummer Bobby Mahoney. He was also the drummer for "Reach the Sky". This episode concludes the "Bane" series. Definitely my personal favorite stretch of episodes so far. As with the previous episodes, we go into his history and what steered him into the direction of the hardcore scene. We go from his earliest bands who didn't release music, to an early band, "Black Belt", then into "Reach the Sky" who had a nice run of success, then into "Bane". His thoughts on that final tour, the last couple shows and of course, the final show at the Worcester Palladium. At this point, if you have listened to this series, by the end of this one, you'll get a good feeling about the future of "Bane" and what may or may not need to happen in order for them to play again. Bobby rules, so does "Bane" and whatever the future holds, I appreciate all they have done. I will forever hold those moments. Much respect and thank you all for your time and to everyone who has listened, I thank you as well. Respect.

    The Isolation Sessions: Vol. 14 - Bane. (Pt. 4/5) Aaron Dalbec.

    The Isolation Sessions: Vol. 14 - Bane. (Pt. 4/5) Aaron Dalbec.

    The fourteenth in a series of podcasts during the Coronavirus pandemic. "The Isolation Sessions". Part 4 of 5 in the "Bane Series". My guest is founding member and guitarist Aaron Dalbec. He also plays guitar for "Only Crime" and bass for "Be Well", as well as former guitarist for "Converge". Aaron also owns and operates his own company, "Essex Coffee Roasters". We go into his history along with the early days of "Converge" then quickly go into the formation "Bane". Being he is a founding member, there's a lot. A dedicated 20 year run with a band that couldn't stop touring... until they did. I ask him all about the final show and the possibility of reforming. While they were still active, he played bass for a bit with "Only Crime" along with the singer for "Good Riddance" and "Creep Division". After "Bane" was over, it's apparent that Aaron has a drive and passion for creating music, so "Be Well" was formed. I wish his band and his coffee company nothing but success. It was great to speak with him. I hope you enjoy this one. Will "Bane" ever reform? We shall see.

    The Isolation Sessions: Vol. 13 -Bane. (Pt. 3/5) Aaron Bedard.

    The Isolation Sessions: Vol. 13 -Bane. (Pt. 3/5) Aaron Bedard.

    The thirteenth in a series of podcasts during the Coronavirus pandemic. "The Isolation Sessions". Part 3 of 5 in the "Bane Series". My guest is singer Aaron Bedard. He also sings for "Antagonize" who have 2 demos and a full length out now! Check it out, it rules! We go deep. We touch on movies we love, since we both have an appreciation film. We touch on his history growing up and his influences. I always love talking about the first bands people were in when they were kids, because usually they're over the top and cheesy, and Aaron's first bands are awesome! Then, of course we start talking about "Bane". As everyone already knows, they're one of my favorite bands and appreciate what they have done, their message and how they never cared what anyone thought. They did what they wanted to do. Aaron has a deep passion for the band to say the least. His response to my "will 'Bane' ever play again" question was both heartfelt and in an odd way, for me, was a bit of a relief. His honesty and in depth answers are second to none. We touch on "Antagonize" then quickly bounce back into more "Bane" talk and "Bane dreams". You'll understand when you listen. It was a pleasure and an honor to speak with him. Respect.

    The Isolation Sessions: Vol. 12 -Bane. (Pt. 2/5) James Siboni.

    The Isolation Sessions: Vol. 12 -Bane. (Pt. 2/5) James Siboni.

    The twelfth in a series of podcasts during the Coronavirus pandemic. "The Isolation Sessions". Part 2 of 5 in the "Bane Series". My guest is bassist, James Siboni. He has also played bass for the bands "Loma Prieta" and "Faze". We discuss his upbringing and having parents as musicians, and his introduction to punk and hardcore. Then of course how he met, became friends with and started working with "Bane". I had never met or spoken James before we did this episode. But I will tell you, joining "Bane" for him was like a dream come true. A super nice guy with a passion for hardcore. He now lives in Florida and owns a record store, "Tiger Records". Support him. He deserves it. I'm glad we did this. I hope you enjoy this installment of the "Bane Series" as well. Respect.

    The Isolation Sessions: Vol. 11 - Bane. (Pt. 1/5) Zach Jordan.

    The Isolation Sessions: Vol. 11 - Bane. (Pt. 1/5) Zach Jordan.

    The eleventh in a series of podcasts during the Coronavirus pandemic. "The Isolation Sessions". Part 1 of 5 in the "Bane Series". My guest is guitarist, Zach Jordan. He is also the singer for "Silent Drive". Zach and I have been trying for literally about two years to do an episode of the podcast. This was before the pandemic hit. We just never were able to line up our schedules and geography got in the way since he was constantly on the road with other bands. So, I figured I'd reach out to see if he was down to do one of "The Isolation Sessions". I must give him credit for coming up with the idea to do a "Bane Series" with all of the members after he caught wind that I was also trying to line up an episode with the other guitarist, Aaron Dalbec. This was the first podcast that he has done since "Bane" called it quits on June 18th, 2016. To my knowledge, nobody in the band has... until now. One of my all time favorite bands, and the nicest guys. A true Hardcore band. I hope you enjoy this series. These are some of my favorites that I've done so far. Respect.
