Musical background:
As a kid I played instruments like flute or piano. Then when I was
16 years old I started playing the bass. 3 month later I played in my
first band, a Black Metal band, and the first concert soon followed.
After that I was in a jazzband at school, but I soon found out that Metal
rather is my cup of tea and so I played bass in a couple of bands over the
years. Their style reached from Meldic Metal to Death Metal (e.g.
Commander, Rapture). Since 2002 I play the bass guitar at Midnattsol
and since 2006 I additionally join the band R:I:P (Raw Intense Power).
