ABOUT

I create my own music, i play guitar, drums, bass, synth, ...

I have about 30 songs that are about 90% done and over 120 sessions that i've started recording but they are mostly ideas with big potential.
As much as i would like to do everything myself i am giving in and have to look for other musicians to help me finish it all.

I have a home studio of my own in my house, my living room has been transformed into a studio. Nothing major but i can record anything anytime.
I've played in different bands, from rock, metal and even Christian church band playing drums and guitar.
As a teenager i've spent 3 years singing in a church choir in Slovenia, Europe.
Since i was born and raised in Europe i grew up listening mostly to European style metal, along with everything else of course.
My friends who i have grown up with have played in many different bands, a few of them played for Belphegor, Noctiferia, Nothnegal, Dusk Delight, Scaffold etc... which means i was there with them, helping setup stage and even had a chance to practice with them and record in a studio.

Dusk Delight is a 1st band i started playing in 1997 but that following year i left for the USA so they had to find a replacement drummer to record the album and when i came to US i started playing guitar and stuck with it ever since.
I still play drums and everything else i listed.

My music contains lots of elements from Swedish Death Metal - Norwegian Black metal styles, it's classical music inspired with very little western type classic rock and blues licks.

So if you're interested in this type of madness send me a message.
