The main influences for me are many different schools of metal, from Neo- Classical Speed Metal, European Power Metal, old school hard rock and speed/thrash metal. Now a complete new adventure is about to conquer the world: HOLYHELL ! We will shake the earth and wake the dead!!! Nothing beats playing live. I 'm never tired of it. Whether it's a live show or guitar clinic or whether it's a big venue or a small dive of a pub. As long as there are fans there that enjoy killer guitar I'm happy.
