He has toured world wide with international metal bands such as INCANTATION (US), SHINING (SE) and THE MONOLITH DEATHCULT (NL).

From local drum band to Asia tour

“I got my first snare drum lesson at the local percussion group when I was eight years old. A full drum set followed quickly. I started taking lessons in all kinds of styles like pop, rock, funk, jazz and latin. In secondary school, guitarist Guido de Jongh and I started our very own metal band (later to be named DEVIOUS in the year 2000). From then on, I’ve always been active in one or more metal bands. By playing live, recording albums and teaching drums I’ve been improving my drumming skills on many levels.”

Dictated in Nepal en India
