Hi guys!

30.8.2016


Hi!

This is my latest little song called Raindrops. I had this thing going on with a clean sound where I'm using some tapped arpeggios over a barre chord. I thought that it was a really interesting sound to play two different chords on top of each other. So I needed to make a little song out if it. I hope you dig it.

The video is here: https://youtu.be/DmGC5yTyrT4

For a long time I’ve been wanting to do a cover video of some of Steve

Also some gigs added.


19.4.2014


Some gigs added for Reversion and Playa. Check out the gigs section.


9.4.2014


Cover song no. 3.


As a son of the 80's I couldn't avoid being exposed to the all synth pop music. I've always thought that this techno or other dance music is very close to heavy metal in terms of arrangement and overall feel. Just add real drums and electric guitar and you'll have a awesome melodic metal song. So this is my tribute to this genre of music. It's not an 80's song but it fits the same category. Hope you dig it!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEozX2vVRnQ&feature=youtu.be


24.3.2014


Hello guitar fanatics!


Here’s a little selection of solos from the tours I did with Playa Band last year. Hope you dig it.

http://youtu.be/OD_cMZvlfY4


11.3.2014


On next Sunday, 16.3. I’ll be performing with Playa at Tampere Arena and on vocals we’re having the legendary Michael Monroe. That’ll be interesting! Be there!


6.3.2014


Cover song no 2.


When it comes to metal, the heaviest this there is for me is Pantera. The heaviness doesn't come by wearing a corpse painting and walking like a crab. It's the touch, tightness, phrasing and overall taste that counts for me. Dimebag had it all, chops and great taste of melodies as well. I love all of Dime's solos but this one sums it pretty well up. Hope you dig it. Rip Dimebag.

8.1.2014


Happy New Year people!


I'm starting this new little video series where I'm covering the artists, bands or musical genres that have influenced me the most. The first video shall be this very tricky yet beautiful piece called Aquarium. It's a part of a big masterpiece titled as Carnival of the animals by Camille Saint-Saens. The dude roamed this earth during 1835-1921.


So this cover is to show my love for classical music. I hope you dig it.

Happy holidays everyone!


During my little vacation I’m preparing a new video. It’s a cover song and is probably the most difficult piece of music I’ve ever recorded. Hopefully I’ll nail it soon and you’ll definitely going to dig it. It’s something a little different and one thing I can tell you about it is that it’s not a heavy metal song...
