I have added a new page to this website, Video Game Music, with a playlist featuring my concepts, ideas and demos for video game music.
Thomastik-Infeld Power Brights.
Handwound in Vienna.
Percussive attack and excellent projection with a beautiful, balanced response and rich harmonic overtones.
In addition, taking into consideration my music’s symphonic elements and the company’s rich heritage in creating strings for classical instruments, I can think of no more suitable brand for me to support.
Truly god-tier guitar strings, pictured here matching wonderfully with my equally god-tier Timber Tones bone plectra.
After months of arduous collection sidequests, overcoming fierce trials in the Temple of the Riff and ultimately receiving divine blessing from the Shrine of Melody, my ESP Eclipse-I CTM Dark Purple Satin has been reborn, her true power awakened, imbued with the spirit of the gods.
Equipped with premium Gotoh hardware, Schaller straplocks and the magnificent Lundgren Black Heaven ceramic pickup set, she has become a truly regal, majestic instrument – thus, I have bestowed upon her a new name and title befitting her beauty and grandeur: Zelda, the Twilight Princess.
My epic debut album “The Sword That Slays the Darkness” is now available as a beautiful digipack CD! This first run is strictly limited to only 40 copies, so be quick to get yours! Shipping worldwide!

Audio-Technica ATM650 hypercardioid dynamic microphone to replace my Shure SM57. The ATM650 has a slightly more aggressive midrange and less high-end fizz than the SM57, whilst retaining all the best qualities such as a weighty low-end response and superior isolation. I shall henceforth be using it to mic up my guitar cabinet, so prepare thine ears for some serious crunch.
ESP LTD EC-256 Goldtop! A very affordable yet absolutely solid guitar to back up my ESP arsenal.
Maidens and warriors, it is my great honour to announce that “The Sword That Slays the Darkness” is OUT NOW! It is available immediately to download via Bandcamp and all other online music retailers shall follow suit over the next week!
Tomorrow I release my very first full-length album: “The Sword That Slays the Darkness”. The product of a year and a half of writing, recording, mixing, mastering, making countless mistakes and thus learning countless lessons along the way. I’m incredibly proud of the album and I’m confident that I could have done nothing more with what I have to make it as great as it can possibly be. I’m certain that you’ll all think the same when you listen to it tomorrow!
P.S. My heartfelt gratitude for the positive comments and pre-orders thus far!
