SXSW Song Of The Day: Victim Mentality – Way Of Steel

If I learned one thing from the recent Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, (other than the fact that a lot of people are kind of obsessed with whether or not Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir are romantically involved) it’s that South Koreans love their metal.

The sight of a 13 year old guitarist shredding his ass off as he played a variation on Vivaldi’s “Winter” followed by a brief performance by heavy post-rock band Jambinai made for perhaps the most metal Olympics closing ceremony ever. So while the most heavily hyped Korean acts playing SXSW this year are likely the K-pop ones, the presence of retro glam metallers Victim Mentality is also welcome as they represent all that’s heavy in their homeland.

Victim Mentality play the very metal Dirty Dog Bar on March 15 at 9:00pm. Go see them and then grab a slice at Hoek’s next door for the full Austin metal experience.
