Hello Josh and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum.

Your SVM has a pad switch, right? Is it engaged?

Live music events are very taxing on any recording setup. Alternative rock groups are among the hardest to get clean. It's virtually impossible to get a good capture with any mic on the camera. Neither the camera or the mic are well suited for the job you would like them to do. A board feed is a much better way to go.

a dynamic mic is designed for loud sounds. Good ones are expensive because they can handle loud db range(check the specs page on them, they'll say like up to 120db). All you have to do is either hook up an external dynamic mic to your camera or get a mixer guy to give you a perfect output(like Ty said). probably a xlr or 1/4 adaptor would be needed.

but it seems to me that any recording that is far away from the band, will have echo, room distortion, and reverb problems anyway. That's why they have recording studios.
