In a recent interview with Arizona Central, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM singer Eric “AK” Knutson said: “We are very hungry for it. We think it is our turn to reach that higher level as WILL Where ANGEL OF DEATH or any of those other groups that have been around as long as we have been. They have all reached this next level. And they merit this. They worked hard for it. But we never quite got to this point. ”
“We’ve learned that you have to put the work in. These guys do the work. [MEGADETH leader] Dave mustaine, he’s not the nicest guy in the world. But he’s a hard worker. And he’s worked every day of his life to get to where he is. ”
Knutson went on to say that METALLIC put the work too. “But they were also very lucky and were in the right place at the right time to make the right kind of songs,” he said.
