My musical background goes back to 1985, where I at an age of 15, started to jam with a friend. This was later to become the heavy metal band Invocator. I'm the main man in Invocator, which so far has released 4 albums and have played successful shows with bands like Entombed, Paradise Lost, Sepultura, Edge Of Sanity, Psychotic Waltz, Gorefest, Incubus (now Opprobrium), Dark Angel, etc. etc. My main instrument is guitars and vocals in Invocator but I play the bass + drums as well. Among many other things, I recorded the drums on the death metal album of project-band Maceration, which also featured Dan Swanö on vocals. In the spring of 2004 I was contacted by Beyond Twilight, who asked me to be their new rhythm guitarist – a position I gladly accepted. Since 1990 I’ve worked as engineer/producer and have produced bands like Hatesphere, Mercenary etc. My own favourite producers are Jeff Lynne, Brendan O'Brien, Bob Rock, Zed. My musical inspirations are Ripping Corpse - Dreaming With The Dead, Morbid Angel - Altars Of Madness, Dark Angel - Leave Scars, Queensryche - Empire, Slayer - Reign In Blood, Pestilence - Consuming Impulse, Soilwork - Steelbath Suicide, Darkane - Rusted Angel.
