      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.

        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.
