D. Linsk - Speed\Kill/Hate
New Yorkers Speed\Kill/Hate definitely face the pain and crumble the walls of hate with serious impact. I had the distinct priviledge to spend some quality time with founding member and guitarist David Linsk and overdrill him with some pernicious questions.
MettleAngel: Why did you decide to form Speed\Kill/Hate?
MettleAngel: Why did you choose Mario as your vocalist?
MettleAngel: What's a more obscure thrash influence?
MettleAngel: No, let me rephrase that, I'm referring to an obscure metal band with whom many fans may not be too familiar.
MettleAngel: Yeah, they were better than Sepultura back in the day, since early Sepultura borrowed heavily from Sodom & Destruction, before creating their own sound with "Beneath The Remains".
MettleAngel: Did you ever hear Steeler with Ron Keel and Yngwie Malmsteen?
MettleAngel: What about some of your death metal influences?
MettleAngel: Yeah me too, that and the debut by Brutal Truth. Who would you love to open for on your "Dream Tour"?
MettleAngel: What message do you hope to impart to your fans?
MettleAngel: What about those harsh and disgruntled vocals performed by Mario?
MettleAngel: I see your point, after all, who can forget the groundbreaking vocal effort by Chuck Billy on Testament's "Low".
MettleAngel: Gene Hoglan, Steve DiGiorio, James Murphy, what a great combination of death and thrash. Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions about your band and not so much about your life with Overkill.
