MM: First up can you give us a brief history about yourself and your bands and influences

Hi, my name is Jay and I am 54 years old. I am a musician from Germany. my influences are punk and metal music of the eighties. especially black and death metal. my first band was Berzano, which I founded in 1998. very noisy black metal. then followed On Horns Impaled, old school black metal. After that I played in Discovered (Discharge Cover Band) and Kadaverficker the Bass. From 2017 we founded GSTNK and in 2021 I founded Skinpeeler. There are still a few projects, but they only release songs every now and then.

For example Buster X Keaton, Disvirus, Sore Humanity...
