5ive biography
5ive are an instrumental band from Boston, MA consisting of the duo of Ben Carr and Charlie Harrold. The core of 5ive's sound progresses from the Psychedelic/Space Rock of early Floyd, like the albums Saucerful of Secrets and Ummagumma, but bring their own brand of brutality to stoner rock. Ben Carr in an interview with Carl Shultz, 5ive shapes tones and experiments with analog waveforms. Our sound has always been described as an Organic sound, it has natural truth to it and though it is not always a happy or uplifting message, you cannot deny it.

In 2001, 5ive released their self titled first studio album on Tortuga Recordings, which included Jeff Caxide (ISIS) on bass. Later in the same year, they released their second studio album, The Telestic Disfracture, which included vocals on the first two tracks by Jonah Jenkins (MILLGRAM). In 2003, the band changed their name to 5ive's Continuum Project and released, The Hemophiliac Dream (EP) which again included Jeff Caxide (ISIS) on bass. In 2004, they released a Split with Kid606. In 2006, they changed their name back to 5ive and released Versus, which originally was a tour only EP from 2004, which included a two stage remix of the track Soma, the latter being remixed by Justin Broadrick (GODFLESH, JESU). In 2008, they released their third studio album, Hesperus.

5ive mixes space/post metal/experimental/sludge elements that make their sound vast and infinite. They should be a welcome addition to ISIS, PELICAN, NEUROSIS, and OLD MAN GLOOM fans and are highly recommended.
