I started playing guitar when I was 14, trying to play Iron Maiden and Metallica songs. I eventually got better and joined some local bands playing hard rock and metal. I actually played in a few bands with Fredrik in the early days. Then I got into shredding and guitar hero stuff for a while, Joe Satriani and Yngwie Malmsteen etc. But I always wanted to write my own songs, that’s how Fredrik and I got together and formed Bloodbound.
