So this interview is actually a bit old but my computer has been out of commission for quite some time now (a speaker claimed its life) and half this interview was still on it…but I’m back bitches.  I’ve been able to copy the hard drive and finish writing this whole thing up so here it finally is.  Once upon a time, my partner in crime Tyrus and I got the opportunity to hang out with the one and only Wintersun‘s drummer Kai Hahto and bassist Jukka Koskinen. Due to my issues, the interview hasn’t been published, until now.  We had a pretty amazing conversation ranging in topics from musical influences such as Busta Rhymes, right down to The Muppet Show, and even drunken Santa Claus.  We had an awesome time with these guys and hopefully you’ll enjoy reading the interview as much as we did conducting it.

You can click right here to check the whole thing out.  Our good friend Butcher came along for the ride as well, so in the interest of not confusing everyone with our names I’ve only listed anyone from Metal Riot where appropriate.  Wonder Twin powers activate!
