Contributor’s Note:  “”The Don” spends some time with guitarist Rob Wharton of the Metal band Cognitive. We go through Cognitive’s entire “Matricide” album and identify the ‘goosebump’ moments in the music. Rob and his band were dealing with touring vehicle troubles as well as recovery from the flu to do the interview. Despite having 103 degree fever, the band never cancelled one show. That is dedication!  Fans can find Cognitive at the following locations:
