A playlist filled with death metal, Finnish rock and punk and random songs I like

Which is your preferred poison?

Caffeine for sure! Fast food takes second place.

All of them! Wacken would be pretty cool though.

A Huge thank you to the guys in the band for giving me this opportunity to play music again! And thanks to all the fans, hope to meet you on the road soon!!!
