SICK OF IT ALL's KOLLER Brothers Discuss Sandy Hook And 9/11 Conspiracy Theories (Video)

Germany's EMP Rock Invasion recently conducted an interview with Lou (vocals) and Pete Koller (guitar) of New York hardcore legends SICK OF IT ALL. You can now watch the chat below. A couple of excerpts follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET).

On how the U.S. mainstream media is owned directly by large multinational corporations, which are connected to a plethora of other major global corporations and elite interests:

Lou: "It's owned by, like… Two or three families own all of the media — newspapers, television, all that — and they're all connected to all the politicians, to the big politicans, so..."

Pete: "CNN's slogan, isn't it 'the most trusted name in news' or something like that? There was a shooting in Connecticut [Editor's note: Pete is referring to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, which occurred on December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut when 20-year-old Adam Lanza fatally shot 20 children and 6 adult staff members], and then CNN had to admit that, 'yes, we had to hire actors to portray the families, because they were too distraught.'"

Lou: "What is that? Why would you hire actors to portray grieving families?"

Pete: "And they were caught. Everyone saw it. It doesn't matter. We'll keep watching."

Lou: "CNN's still on."

[Editor's note: The Sandy Hook conspiracy theories have been repeatedly debunked in various articles, including this one on HuffingtonPost.com.)

On whether they do any research on certain topics before writing their lyrics:

Lou: "Yeah, if something really hits us. I mean, Armand [Majidi, drums] wrote a song on the album called '2061', and it's the year they're supposed to release the 'uncensored' findings of the 9/11 investigation.

Pete: "Which is never gonna happen."

Lou: "Because, in 2000, they were supposed to release the uncensored findings of the Kennedy assassination, but then they deemed it, 'It's still too sensitive a subject. We have to wait for another 20 years."

Pete: "[Laughs] How crazy is that?"

Lou: "It's, like, they're waiting for people to be, like, 'Who got shot? Who's Kennedy? When did this happen?' And they're trying to drive it home with, like, 'Don't look at that. Hey, look, Kim Kardashian got married in a fucking castle.' And that's what they want you to look at."

Pete: "It's, like, 'Look over here. Don't look over there. Look at this. Look at the pretty people.'"

SICK OF IT ALL's new album, "The Last Act Of Defiance", will be released in Europe, Australia and New Zealand on September 29, and in North America on September 30 via Century Media.
