Founded in 2018, Between The Lines Media is a way for me to give back to the metal community. Im 29, married, and I have two amazing cats.

My metal roots started back when I was in grade school. my dad used to blast Metallica, Pantera, and Slayer. I slowly grew and found bands like Slipknot and Korn during my teens.

Then after high school, I found bands such as Whitechapel, Job For A Cowboy, and Suicide Silence. ever since, ive been on a journey to find the heaviest music I can find, and im not stopping.

“Hi everyone! I'm Sam Ochoa founder of Mystic Fae Photography and I will be working with this amazing page! I've been doing photography for about 7 years now, but just recently started my own business. I fell in love with film when I was 16 and to this day it's still my favorite. I started falling in love with metal at 13 and haven't looked back. You can normally find me at shows on the weekends or at a dog park. I'm excited to start this amazing journey with between the lines media and can't wait to show y'all amazing photos of the bands you love.”

“My name is Vince and I'm a passionate music enthusiast. My musical journey began practically the day I was born. My furthest memories are filled with my dad introducing me to countless bands he loved throughout his life. Anywhere from Classic Rock to Thrash of the 80s, and the Grunge of the 90s. At around 9 years old is when my world opened up even bigger when I was gifted Guitar Hero for Christmas. Ever since, it has been a hobby of mine to dive into discovering endless amounts of music of all different genres. And that goal continues through Between The Lines. I hope I can help open your world to new music as well.”
