Power Wound Nickel Electric Custom Gauges: 11-14-18-28W-38-50
At the age of 15 I formed my first REAL band with the REAL attitude and direction with the own songs and that was the melodic death metal squad Omnium Gatherum - the band I’m playing and leading still after the 15 years of ups andCreate downs, 5 albums and mcd released worldwide and a big pile of demos and hundreds of gigs behind.
I also played in progressive metal band called Manitou that released 3 albums “The Mad Moon Rising”, “Deadlock” and “No Signs Of Wisdom” between the years 2000-2009, and I’ve been playing in progressive metal band called Malpractice since 2005 and played on their album called “Triangular”. At the moment I’m also playing in a hard rock band called Wolftrap and the debut album is on the way. So I’m pretty used to having many musical projects going on at the same time as like I always say, i have a diagnose of musical AD/HD… I spend way too much time with the guitar, as I’m also working as a guitar teacher!
Last two years I’ve been filling a lot in Finnish metal bands Diablo, Barren Earth, Pressure Points, and Insomnium as a substitute live member. That’s how the guys of the Inso-crew hooked me to their band business. Of course I’ve been knowing the Insomnium guys for years by now as we’ve been bustling in the same musical pigeonhole since the late 90’s - the Finnish melodeathscene!
I’m the least educated guy in the highly academic group of Insomnium, but I still have something in my pocket on that side - a bachelor of business administration from the Kymenlaakso University of Applied Science. That’s what I’m gonna do when I retire from the guitar business. Not.
