„As a child of the 80s I was blown away by Nicko McBrain's (Iron Maiden) colorful cymbals back then and that was my first meeting with Paiste. Later on, when I actually started to play, I found that Paiste stood for quality like no one else and they have continued to deliver excellent products to this day. I am a proud endorsee!“

I'm the drummer for the Swedish melodic death metal band Scar Symmetry. I've been a member of the band since its formation in 2004 and we have recorded seven albums and toured in Europe, the US, Canada and Japan through the years. I also have a solo band called Apocryphon. In the past I played with bands like Theory In Practice, Mutant, Altered Aeon, Diabolical and Beyond the Katakomb.
