Story:

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!

Story:
I was a bad student at school, not because I lacked the intelligence but because I  was occupied doing other things. Mostly chasing broads and hanging out.
So yea, born to rock so it seems.
When I was little I used to go dit behind my uncle Ciro's drumkit Everytime (former Within Temptation drummer).
I also started in a Marching Band when I was very young and learned to play multiple instruments (saxophone and the flute for example), so I've always been Busy making music.
I started singing when i was in my teenage years because my father thaught I had talent.
At first I wasn't really interested in singing but later on I actually started to like it and started playing in bands.
After I sang in multiple bands I met Sonny.
He was a student at my father in law's guitar school.
So thats how I joined Reign of Bullets.

Story:

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!

 Story:
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!

Story:
My parents Where big rock fans, When i grew up there was a lot of music in the house always. Specialy guns 'n roses and slash s guitarsolo’s is what got me in to guitarplaying. 
Couple of years later i met Kevin at school and he got me into the more heavier bands like Pantera and Testament.
Now these days I'm trying to find my own style and 
I like to combind heavy riffs with melodic guitarsolo’s!
