One week from today! The big
show in New Jersey! March 14, 2020 at The Wellmont Theater.
Rob Moschetti about this upcoming show: "There is something
very cool about next weeks show with Overkill. I was a fan of
M.O.D. and Overkill in the late 80s. The first time l saw both
bands was at LaMours in Brooklyn on the same bill. That was 32
years ago. 3 years after that show, as an envious fan, l was in
the band. To share the stage with Overkill as a member of M.O.D.
is a full circle event in my life. I hope to see you all there
to share this moment with me."

In March 2018 I interviewed new
M.O.D. guitarplayer Jason French. Last January I spoke with
rejoined bassplayer Rob Moschetti. But although we've met a few
times in 2014, I never did a real interview with drummer Michael
Arellano who's in M.O.D. for 6 years already! So it was finally
time now to also do a proper interview with M.O.D. drummer
"I wouldn't be where I'm at today if it wasn't
for the Texas Hardcore scene."
Rob Moschetti recently
rejoined M.O.D.! That's awesome news! Here's a short interview
with Rob in which he explains when and why he was asked to
become the 'new' bassplayer and what future plans for M.O.D.
