Dislikes: Greed and narrow-mindedness

Have been playing guitar and written the songs in, as it was described in media, “one of Sweden’s most promising heavy metal bands”, VII Gates, on their first two albums. Got fantastic reviews and not-so-fantastic sales. Now my main duty is The Rockford Heroes, which is a true pleasure. Since I moved to Stockholm in 2008, I have also participated in some other things. Have been a “resque” guitarist a couple of times in some bands like The Queen Of Hardrock, Rough Diamond, Nightfish and Dollies, made some music for a TV production and been helping people who want to send recordings to various competitions with recording and producing. Everything should all be available under Bands&Projects, but as I write this, I’m not at all finished with uploading all of it. Any suggestions and feedback are highly appreciated!

    Hi! Great to hear from you, and thanks for your kind words about the music 🙂

    So far, we haven’t made any physical releases. We have talked about maybe make some vinyl copies to have something to sell on shows, or maybe add some “print-on-demand” CD-shop to the extensive list of stores/services who distributes the music. But so far, there have only been digital releases.

    But keep checking on the site, I update it pretty often (even if it’s usually about completely different things than just music :)) and will definitely post when/if we start to sell vinyls/CDs.

    Have a nice day!
