    Things are about to get plenty real. It’s been my pleasure to take some time to ask “Knife” Sotelo some questions and find out about his life in Nu-Metal and what sets him apart from the rest. We cover the map from personal philosophies to music and perhaps for the first time in my life…I’m ...
  • Eyes Like Oceans Interview

    Gotta say it was an extreme pleasure to talk to Kristoffer Szczerbicki of Eyes Like Oceans.  In a somewhat rare occurrence here on our pages I found out doing my research and briefly chatting with KS that he was formerly in the band Amy’s Ashes – a band I not only knew of but still ...

    I must say, dear readers…this was a very interesting interview to conduct.  After researching and learning about Kenner…I came out of it all with my questions in hand, but also left with two stunning impressions of how this band operated.  The first…after watching numerous videos in their catalog…was that this band has an extreme sense ...

That’s not the ...
