As sponsors of the No Mercy Metal Showcase series here in NYC, Rob and I caught a number of great bands last Thursday for the inaugural event at Crash Mansion. One band in particular caught our eye at the show: Resolution 15, a unique and equally dynamic band that is sure to raise your brow.

Upon first impression, the term "folk metal" immediately crossed our mind when watching not one, but two performers break out their violins with no guitars in sight. Folk metal is far from accurate in describing the band's sound of technically articulated electro-violin riffing, a painfully tight and bewildering rhythm section, and a front man who adds to the musical composition with screams of various notation. Everyone of these things is what makes this band stand out, and if being different wasn't enough, they're fucking awesome too! Metal with distorted violins. Huzzah!!

Check out their music video above for the track "Sufferers Rise" taken from the band's recently released EP Satyagraha.
