Musician at: The Faces Of Sarah
1. Roger Waters - The Pros & Cons Of Hitch Hiking
"Always been a huge Pink Floyd fan, but over the years I've grown to love Waters solo material more and more. Simply sublime album."
2. Black Sabbath - Heaven & Hell
"Ronnie James Dio was an incredible singer and had a huge influence on me musically and vocally. This is an incredible album from start to finish."

4. Marillion - Clutching At Straws
"Lyrically and musically stunning."

"When I was asked to name my top five albums I already stormed through my head and thought: “How is it even possible to reduce my choices to five albums.” Well I really need to say that this is not easy at all and a lot of compromises need to be done. Another important, non-Metal thing is the fact that actually a lot of my inspiration and “top” music is actually cinematic or orchestral music."

"Summer has always been one of mine most fruitful periods for writing music, therefore I listen to mainly my own demos for constant analysis. Music by other artists is mainly for background purposes which results in my all-time familiar albums that I like and lots of ambient and soundtrack based music which I listen at home, and in my car is mainly electro, techno and trance to decompress."
