Heavy metal, Metalcore, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Killswitch Engage, Breakdown of Sanity, Pantera, Avenged Sevenfold
I started playing bass after a trade deal, I traded a skateboard for a bassguitar and started to play along with some Iron maiden songs and really fell in Love with the deep powerfull tone of the bassguitar. After a few weeks I started to play in a coverband and did a lot of gigs, but I didn't want to play other bands songs. I had bigger plans.
In that same period I met Kevin at a local Band event and he asked me to join his band. We played some pop rock songs that we wrote ourselfs but the band split up after we spoke about what kind of style we wanted to continue with. Me and Kevin wanted to play heavier music instead of pop rock and so we continued with different band-members and under a different name. We wrote songs like Spread my Wings, Bliss and Reign of Bullets.
We all liked the name Reign of Bullets and decided to change our name to Reign of Bullets.
I feel happy to be in this band with these great guys. We are like a family and we love to make heavy melodic music!
Heavy/Trash metal, Metalcore
Pantera, Trivium, Testament, Avenged Sevenfold, Tremonti, Machine Head and Killswitch engage
When I was a kid I saw Dimebag Darrel play the guitar like a god, I was blown away! I knew immediately: "I want to learn and play this insanely awesome metal and be a rockstar one day." For some time I kept playing with that goal in mind.
I met a few guys that played black metal and they invited me to play with them. At first we did some covers from Dimmu Borgir and played a few gigs. Soon I felt to urge to write our own music and so we did. A long the way the band fell apart. I got invited for a new black metal band and in this we also made our own music. We played at various stages and recorded our songs in a studio. It was epic but after all it wasn't exactelly the style I truly loved.
Again the band fell apart and also my hope and vision of my life goal faded away .
Untill a few years later Sonny asked me if I wanted to play in a new band with influences like Pantera, Machine Head and Avenged Sevenfold and here we are Reign of Bullets with amazing musicians and living my little boys dream!
Thrash, Hardcore, Punk, Heavy metal, Progressive metal, Blues and Rock music
When I was about ten or eleven years old my parents thought it was a great idea to give me some music education and put me on guitar lessons. By that time I already knew my biggest interest would be drums, the only problem was that I did not have a place to practice.
So after a years of not doing my homework for guitars and not even looking at the damn thing, my parents brought home my first drum kit and o man! I killed the damn thing! In that same year me and my dad went to see Metallica and Slipknot live!
Man o man this was one of the best nights of my life and right there and then I decided I wanted to become good at playing drums. After a few years of playing in several bands I’ve met Sonny and Dyon and this is where we are right now!
Loud and angry!
