The first instrument I played was the recorder in a musical school at the age of six. Eight years later I suddenly felt like learning the electric bass. My little brother instantly copied me and started learning the electric guitar, but cast away the idea a few months later – just like little brothers sometimes do. I picked up the guitar additionally, since it was there already and started jamming every now and then.
A couple of years later the idea of founding a band dedicated to my favourite game series came to my mind. I asked Steiner and Mathias to join this cause, since I thought they both might be interested. After some time the line-up became stable, resulting in the current one.
My first two or three bands sucked pretty much, but practice makes perfect – even though I am still far from perfect. The bands that followed were On Concrete (2009-2012), Nuclear Monstrosity (2010-now) and Squirrels with Lightsabers (still active, I just quit the band because of university), which were projects that I enjoyed or am still enjoying and really proud of.
