Musical Background:
I started playing drums at age 7, and went to a local music school for about 12 years. I’ve also played in a marching band for 6 years, and during my highschool time, I also played in a couple of metalbands with friends of mine. I got my bachelor degree of music at the Conservatory in Rotterdam. I’ve been playing in God Dethtoned for more than 6 years now, and have done three albums and quite some tours with them so far. I also worked as a session drummer for Delain’s first album ‘Lucidity’, and I participated in the project of After Forever guitarplayer Sander Gommans, called HDK. And I’m teaching drums from time to time.
