Founded in 2018, Between The Lines Media is a way for me to give back to the metal community. Im 28, 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. HAIL NIMROD!

“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.”

“The more I listen to and discover metal and all of its many subgenres, the more I fall in love with it.
I've always enjoyed rock music, and over the years as I've grown and matured, my musical tastes certainly have done the same. From the humble beginnings of whatever I could get my hands on from radio and the limited amount of MTV that I had access to, to now having Playlist after Playlist and subscriptions on multiple streaming platforms - music has always been a big part of my existence.
And now through getting involved with things like working a major annual music festival last summer, becoming part of a promotions team for Midwest area metal, and helping with this blog it seems metal's presence in my life is here to stay!
And I'm happy to have it.”
