What got you interested in heavy metal? I was influenced early on by Hard Rock bands and other musical styles – namely from the 70s. But after hearing “Fast as a Shark” by Accept one day in 1982 … I quickly conned my parents into buying me a double bass pedal. The rest is history!
What keeps you involved in music? My love of drumming
What would you like to achieve with AFTERSHOK? I’d like to see us play a stage or two at the summer metal festivals in Europe.
