[gallery type="slideshow" link="none" size="full" ids="118172"] What got you into music, and if you had not gotten into music what would you be doing today? I was around 13-14 when I was in grade 7 or 8 when my classmate (a real metalhead) got it into his head that he was going to make me into a metalhead as well. Up until then I listened to Nirvana, Pink Floyd, etc but also whatever was popular at the time like Eminem and the like. He made me listen to Children Of Bodom’s song “Bed Of Razors”, and after the initial shock due to the growling vocals I was hooked. Bodom was all I listened to for about a year. Before Bodom I had played drums as a hobby for about four years, but it all changed then as those insane melodies made me want to learn how to play guitar. It was also then that I found my calling, I was going to make music the main focus of my life (to the chagrin of my parents). I’ve been playing and writing music ever since. There was never really any alternative, but I’ve always been fascinated by languages (and it was the only thing I was ever consistently good at in school) so maybe I would’ve gone into linguistics.
