Blockk 16 was formed in New York City by ex 24-7 Spyz bassist Rick Skatore in 2001. Their first album - Too Brutal For Radio - was released in 2002 (actually more like an EP). It remains their only album release. It sounds somewhat like the heavier moments of 24-7 Spyz without their other musical influences mixed in. Savatage\'s Cris Caffrey did some of the studio guitar playing.
