Artist Bio

Influences:   Fear Factory, Front Line Assembly, Emperor, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Arcana, Dead Can Dance, sci-fi and futuristic movies

A musician and software developer from Finnish Lapland, living in Southern Finland. Been playing guitar since 1997 and writing music since 2000.

For FAWM 2021, it's time to try some interesting concepts again. Arcane genre combinations. Mysterious sounds. Deep space moods. Let's see what will happen 😀

All my FAWM songs (2015 - 2020) are available on Youtube with a simple video for each:

I have been fortunate enough to never have run into a writer's block, which is quite nice for this kind of a thing 😀 For my main band, I have written 100+ published songs (including the almost-ready new album), and about 20 more that are unpublished outtakes. Songwriting has always been my passion and it's always just as exciting to surprise even oneself!


2015 - My first year in FAWM, where I created 14 songs of crazy genre combinations and some songs in genres I've never tried before. I've been lucky to have 965 plays of the songs to date! Thanks all!

2016 - A bit more traditional and many of the songs ended up on the 8th full length Vortech album (still unreleased as of Feb 2018, but next in schedule!). There were also some different styles of songs here and there. 319 views on Youtube, where they were added a month after that FAWM ended. I guess the real count is around 1000.

2017 - I did a special themed FAWM where each song was written as a dystopian scifi "series" where each song followed the previous one in the theme and was very much a concept album. So far, a cool 1049 views!

2018 - Already my fourth time around - cool! Got my win and did mostly straightforward industrial metal, with the aim for the songs to be included in my future Vortech album. Also did a bunch of experimental things, like a futuristic film noir piece and some ambient/electronic stuff.

2019 - A bit more electronic-themed metal, along with a bunch of experimental dark ambient inspired by Cthulhu and the vast space.

2020 - I had a clear vision of machine-powered teeth-disturbing industrial metal with themes from grindcore to ambient. Which I mostly managed to do 😁

    Thanks for your comment on "Weight off my shoulders". We will finish this one for sure. What do you mean by occasional lowered semitones? These stepping down line in the end of the chorus?

  • @hmorg  Mar 4

    Thanks for the comment on "Black Magic Battalion"! Almost as an afterthought I decided to add those little industrial seasonings.

    Ah... the secret is revealed!
    It works so well. Thanks for giving me a peek behind the curtain 😁

  • @torniojaws Feb 24

    Another 3 songs coming in today-ish 😀

    Actually there was 0% of Boss HM2 in the song, I created the guitar tones myself in Guitar Rig 5. I guess I'll have to cease and desist Boss Corporation now.

    Thanks for the comment!

    Thank you my friend, I appreciate your kind words 😀 actually, I have encountered your work elsewhere. I think it was either on Soundcloud or Youtube. Either way, your stuff is phenomenal! 10/10 in my book!

  • @avidfanman  Feb 13

    Thank you for the kind words on “Give Up & Die”. That is a heeeeaaaavy set of influences you have there, looking forward to having a listen 🤟🏻

    Kiitoksia kommentista! Nyrjähtänyt viba oli juuri se mitä hain.

  • @thefinalfrontier  Feb 11

    Thanks for listening to Contact - I'll take Moonspell! 😁

  • @ianuarius  Feb 11

    yo! kiitos kommentista 🙏

  • @leka Feb 11

    Juuri näin!

  • @torniojaws Feb 5

    Fear not, I haven't had time to record guitars yet, but I do have 3 songs nearly ready with just the guitars left to add 😀

  • @cblack Feb 3

    Wow, thanks for all the comments!

    The invocation probably will remain a cappella. I'm rubbish at putting multiple parts together. It's something I'm working on this FAWM, but I love the invocation so much, I doubt I'll fuck with it.

    Male witch would be Strego in Italian, but I prefer Strega. Rolls off the tongue a bit better. 😀

    Lol, Devin Townsend going to the circus. 😝

    And yeah, that one-synth challenge was surprisingly fun!

    Looking forward to more from you. And hey, if you want to put the invocation to music, be my guest. 😀

    Hi there up north. Am waiting for your power sound to move me again this year. Need to rock. Enjoy being.
