NYC Irate Interviews and Features
Below are our features and interviews with NYC Irate.
There's been a bit of an ongoing verbal war between the infamous hardcore thrash metal act from Bronx, New York called Irate and the west coast I.R.A.T.E. - over the ownership of well, the Irate group moniker. My past interview with Erik Ulrich of the latter mentioned I.R.A.T.E. - who are currently travelling across the country with The Project Independent Tour - stirred up literal blood dripping over the curbs into the streets from the anger and frustration expressed by the New York Irate's devoted legion of fans. I wanted to be fair and give both sides a chance to tell their story. Jeff Totten of Project Independent has already spoken on his band's behalf in concern with this over-heated issue and now I give that opportunity to the other Irate and hopefully we can finally bury this battle six feet under. I personally thank Nando and Nick from NYC Irate for being real standup and giving me the honor of discussing not just the name ownership situation - but also giving all of us true metalers a bit more history of their band and what is to come from them as they move forward in life. I respect both sides, for I am merely a rock journalist who loves metal music and at the end of the day on all of this, I hope that's what we walk away talking about: music not destruction. Maybe the White house could learn a thing or two from this themselves.
