Severed Fifth are an innovative new metal band based in Oakland, California that are not only delivering a solid burst of metal, but are hell bent on changing the music industry while doing so.
Founded by Jono Bacon in 2008, Severed Fifth blends together Bay Area thrash with British metal, all the while infusing their wide range of influences, and delivering a tight, competent, rhythmic attack that has a constant heavy undertone. If you like metal, you are going to like Severed Fifth.
Severed Fifth is not just another metal band though, but they are changing how the music industry works. Led by founder Jono Bacon’s philosophy, Severed Fifth make all their music freely available under a permissive license, helping to bring their fans closer to the band, and encouraging fans to use Severed Fifth content in their own creative work. Severed Fifth’s vision is a music industry that is fairer for bands and fans.
To make this vision possible, Severed Fifth are growing a global community called the Severed Fifth Street Team that is advocating the band, producing content, and helping to make this vision a reality.
