1.Introduce yourself and your band and tell us why we should listen to you.

Wade Kindel I am in the band ROT. We are writing music that makes you feel good to go out and tear it up.  If you’re surfing a wave, skating or just want to cruise in your ride and jam out ROT is good sounding vibes.  Music the makes you feel positive.

2.What do you classify your sound as, Who do you tell people you sound like?

Heavy Metal sounds like a rock/thrash/punk mix.

3.With digital music in today's world would you vote to keep or eliminate physical media? 

Keep physical media.

4.What is the reason you decided to be a musician and has that reason paid off? 
For money and women, keep in mind I was fourteen years old. No.. 
5.How do you feel about females in metal getting special attention? Do you feel it is fair? 
I think if they are good then they deserve the attention.

No, I think Metal can break that mold and portray a positive energy to rise above and succeed.
6.In the world climate with hatred being at an all time high and metal being an “ angry” music Do you think your music contributes to anger and hatred? 
No, I think Metal can break that mold and portray a positive energy to rise above and succeed.
7.Are you opposed to religious beliefs or politics being used in music? 
Yes, I like to write about things in life I have done but try to stay positive. I take from the bad and try to get to the better side. But also write about Death something we will all face sooner or later.

8.We have dive into some pretty deep issues here do you think your music sends a message and if so what is it? 
It is tough and with the internet so may more banks. At the end of the day Good Music will make it, the tough part is finding the people that like that style. A record label has connections in place so that could be a big help to get you to your fans.

9.The market has changed and many bands believe that record labels are a thing of the past, with many labels now charging bands to “sign” how do you think a band can make it in todays scene? 
Listen to because it connects with your soul ROT is the energy you need to complete your goals.

10.Why with the thousands of options including netflix , sporting events everything on demand Why do you think people should take the time to listen to what you have to say in your music? 
If the show is big enough to be in front of a great audience then yes. You are going to need to put some skin in the game if you are going to succeed.

11.How do you feel about pay to play? Do you think it is fair for a band to have to pay money to play? 
Dedication, hard work and the passion to keep going even when the rewards are not there every day.

12.It is fact that you are the talent and the entertainment explain what you think is the most important key to success? 
You bet; a good song is something people want to hear even if someone else wrote it, but you perform it well.

13.In country music and even in some cases rock music is written and performed by different people would your band perform a song written by someone else? 

Not really, although I have sung about sex, without sex there would not be life so music would not exist.  So, I think everyone does have some sort of a link to it.

14.If you are pro female in music are you pro using sex to sell your music? 

I think people should be respectable in their lives and the music the perform. So, I am not into lawsuits, spend your energy on something more productive.

15.What is your view on the lawsuits against people saying lewd or unprofessional things to women or men and how does that affect an art described as sex drugs and rock n roll ? 

Super tough but it started with Iron Maiden and Judas Priest.

16. Ok lets lighten up a bit. What is your favorite band of all time and why?

Traveling, enjoying life, adventuring, going to concerts.

17.What would you be doing if you were not in a band?

Washington Capital 

18. Do you have a favorite sports team?

Washington Capitals

19.If you could get on stage with anyone dead or alive who would it be?

Randy Rhoads.

20.This is your shot to let loose, Throw down your biggest complaint about the music biz 

The music biz is a big crazy world, but if your making music you are alive, and you are already successful in creating art that will outlive your existence.  So, you do not have to be famous to be living your dream. I think now is the best time to be writing and getting the music to so many parts of the world that would be super hard without all the technology.  In the end the fans till always keep music alive and rocking. That is what I am is a big fan of music.  So, I like the music biz. Does not mean it is always fair.
