We decided to put
some info about ourselves to these pages. So here is my story:
I was born in 1980
in the city of Pori, Finland.
I moved to Vantaa at the age of 15.
I have always liked music, but never had the chance to play anything 'til
I met Janne. Janne taught me few tricks and I started to practice at home
We founded my first band. It was called Disillusion. After Disillusion
we played together in several different projects.
And about a year I played with Lustig-brothers. That was also first band
where Mika Immonen and I played together. After that I took some break.
Then Janne contacted me. I joined his band Avatar as a lead-guitarist.
After few line-up changes Avatar changed to Dawn Of Eternity.
Dawn Of Eternity had a little break in the year 2000 and
I joined in a band called Alliance. But Dawn Of Eternity found a new place
to train in and I was back in my own band.
During the early
days of Dawn Of Eternity me and Dan Vaaranen founded a side-project, black
metal band called Kärsimys MAXIMUS which is on a break for now. Meaby
for good... but who knows?
My first guitar was
my self-made "stratocaster". It actually worked pretty well.
I bought my "RR" few years ago and have never regret it.
My biggest influences on guitar are Timo Tolkki, all guitarists of Iron
Maiden, Judas Priest and Metallica and many others.
On vocals: Michael Kiske, Ronnie James Dio, Bruce Dickinson, Ozzy Osbourne,
Rob Halford and so on.
My other hobbies are
Karate, in wich I have gained a brown belt, and of course some Heavy Metal
drinking takes place...
I also like to sing in karaoke-bars. Friends think I'm nuts, but I just
like to sing.
So here's a little
piece of my life. See you around!
Hail to metal!
