MW: Please introduce yourself?

CN: Chuck Nasty
MW Please introduce your band?

CN: The hateful kind

MW: Tell me about your band?

CN: We are four people doing what we love to do playing loud, heavy and at times melodic. We are still considered a new band but we have been working at this for a year now and things are taking off nicely. We are just trying to keep the underground alive and to destroy the mainstream pop world…one chord at a time.

MW: Are you promoting a release as of now?

CN: At the moment we have a few people who want to record us. It has become a slow process. It’s been extremely crazy lately but hopefully within the next month or so we will have something recorded. We would like to have something done to have for Rocktopia.
MW:  How can fans buy your merchandise?

CN: We are getting our shirts made as well as stickers. When those are done it will be one of those things, just hit us up at shows or through our face book.
MW: Why did you get involved with ROCKTOPIA 2012?

CN: We like doing benefit gigs like this one. There are a lot of talented bands and musicians all coming together for a good cause. It gives us a chance to hang with new people as well.
MW: What do you think of the lineup?

CN: I think it is a killer fucking line up! A few bands we have played with before are on the bill too. There is a good mix of hard rock and heavy metal. All walks of musical life. It’s gonna be crazy!
MW: What band are you looking most forward to see?

CN: Well, our boys in Kentucky Ugly, Creature of Exile, Atomic Thrillride and I am super happy that The Speed Hearts are on the bill as well. I am really just hyped to check out some bands I have never heard before.

MW: What are some live dates you have coming up?

CN: Well, August 25th in Harrodsburg, KY at Fort Harrod along side Kentucky Ugly, Creature of Exile, and Succumb to Demise. It should be a killer show. We are in the process of getting more shows booked for the next few months.

MW: What would you like to say in closing?
