    Two bands that really inspired me to write my own music were Aerosmith and Evanescence. I have many, many, more influences now, but those were the first ones, and yes that is an odd combination. I wanted my songs to groove like Aerosmith but at the same time have the dark hard rock lyrical poetry characteristic of Ev.

    My biggest inspiration are Iron Maiden and Therion. It´s strange combination, isn´t it? And my music unite these two music styles at one. Strange or interesting? You have to wait a couple of months to release my first solo album, which will include these songs.
