[Gunshot Bride]

I was born on September 17, 1990 in Voronezh, Russia. I started playing in 2007. Band, where I was playing was “Project M”. I left t of Project M in 2009 and founded “Hämärä Loiste” band.
In the 2011, I became a drummer in “Hammer Rage” band. In 2012 i left “Hammer Rage” and became Live and Studio drummer on [Gunshot Bride] band.
I like jam sessions with different musicians, because it helps to develop your unique style and feel the music.
I think the drums is not a just a part of the rhythm section, it’s very important member for the team. Drums give the temper for a song, making songs more vibrant and recognizable.
The greatest influence on me, had such drummers as: Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa, Stewart Copeland, Keith Moon, Neil Peart, John Bonham, David Silveria, Matt McDonough, Gavin Harrison and Shannon Larkin.
