Some music is created to caress and envelop the senses in a delicate and sumptuous manner... some music is created to soundtrack the passion and intensity of romance... and some music is created to rip your head off and bounce your bleeding skull down the street. Meet Hondo Maclean.
Named after an 80's cartoon character, this Welsh quintet are a stunning example of post hardcore fury. Embodying a tasty hybrid of Slayer style intensity and Poison The Well like invention and progressiveness, they are a potent and exciting force in an era of increasingly soulless replication. And like all the best extreme bands, they know when to temper their assault with a mammoth hook or a well-placed insidious melody. They may crush you, but those chorus lines will be stuck in your head as they do it!
Such is the band's passion and drive that even movie superstar Asia Argento (of 'XXX' fame) has fallen for the Hondo Maclean charm! After hearing the track that the band named after her, she called the guys up and offered her services! And that's why you see Asia 's picture adorning the cover and reverse of the band's debut EP.
Shows with Poison The Well,
Anthrax, Sikth, Funeral
For A Friend, The Lost Prophets
and even Steve-O (of Jackass
fame) have primed the guys
for ever more ferocious
performances and the live
Hondo Maclean experience
can be intense to say the
Hondo Maclean - not your average rock band!
