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 2019, I'm planning to do a bit more electronic-influenced stuff, but still with plenty of guitars and experimentation 😀 Trying to come up with a couple of hard-hitting club hit thingies with some nasty twists 😀
All my FAWM songs (2015 - 2018) are available on Youtube with a simple video for each: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyfw...
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my main band, I have written 100+ published songs (including the almost-ready new album), and about 20 more that are unpublished outtakes.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.

Hey thanks for your comment on my track (now called) 'Beggars would ride', appreciate it. I'm impressed with your music - much more developed and produced than mine. Way too noisy and fast for me though! I just can't handle that much energy 😀
Thank you so much for all the song comments. It means a lot to me.
Thank you for your comments. Actually I had reverb on vocals but I think it was too much.
FAWM ends too soon again. 🤪
Thanks for checking out so many of my tunes. Really appreciate the feedback! And, to be compared to "almost NY Hardcore"... WOW! Honored!
Thanks for the awesome comment!
Thank you for your comments. Cheers and have a cool fawming!
Thanks for the great comment!
Hahah, thanks, man! I'm glad you enjoyed it! : D
Thanks for your kind comments on “Via Sacre”, much appreciated!
Thanks for the comment, man, really appreciate it! Yeah, I love both speeding violence and suffocating doom.
Thanks for your kind words on 'Fourteen'. I agree, there's a lot of great stuff to discover, and Internet makes that easier than ever. But I found myself enjoying new bands when they have a familiar sound, like Wolf Alice or Cloud Nothings. So the names have changed, but my taste basically stayed the same over the last 25 years, I never got into HipHop, Grime, Afrobeats or whatever is hot at the moment. So that's what the tune is about. But at least I still try to be open minded and up to date and not just stop discovering like many of my peers do.
Cheers and FAWM on!
Hey, that's a link to your track with my vocals. If you want me to redo any of it, let me know. If you're happy with it, then update the demo and add me as collaborator. 😀 Oh, and please add the following to the liner notes:
@cblack says: Thanks @torniojaws for letting me add vocals to your awesome track! It was actually a lot of fun. Is it perfect? No. But am I happy with it? More or less. 😀
I hope everyone listening enjoys it. 😀
Awesome. I'll try to get some vocals done soon! It might have to wait 'til Monday or Tuesday though. We'll see. 😀
Hello brother and thanks for comment... I'll tell SS to blast more lol...
\m/ Thanks for listening dude!
Thanks for the comment! Evoking the satanik icy winds ov ancient kvlt spirit was all I was looking for ; )
Thanks for the comment, let's see if I can summon some Arney tunes!
Hi @torniojaws, thanks for the positive comment, much appreciated, especially since you clearly have much more idea what you're doing than I have. I won't admit that I've never heard of Wumpscut and never knowingly heard anything by Skinny Puppy - but I'll check them out as well as your stuff. 😀
Hey! Could you possibly email me the .mp3 or .wav of From Beyond. Going to try to add some vocals. No promises, but I'll give it a crack. 😀
Do you have specific lyrics in mind?
Thank you for your thoughtful comments. I very much appreciate it ☺️
Thanks for checking out Dividing Surfaces, funny you mention adding percussion, I intend to do that on some later tracks already 😀
Nice to see you here again!
