Bay and Rick Cortez are the founding fathers of SADISTIC INTENT and DARK REALM RECORDS. Their passion and devotion to metal is one that made for an awesome conversation for this interview. We talk about the early days as brothers getting into metal and the rise of SADISTIC INTENT. There are a ton of great stories sprinkled within like seeing SLAYER rehearse in the garage days, LA scene in the 80s, analyzing Mexican metal influence, Darkthrone, the list goes on. If there is an underline theme in this video it is how far one can go with passion and ambition. This episode is certainly a treat for INTO THE DARKNESS.
