I consider myself a metalhead since crib, hearing vinyl records of my father, bands like Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Led Zeppelin and others ... I started on guitar at age 11 and had a small passage through the bass. From when I was 16, I played guitar in various cover bands of metal and rock. The vocals have been developed over time, because I was always encouraged to take the backings, and the great singers who have passed in my life left a mark in my evolution. Now I keep two channels on YouTube publishing my musical work, Guys From South and Shattered, and I took over the vocals of Lost Forever now!
In 1984 I’ve started to listen to bands such as Queen, Dire Straits, Kiss and Van Halen. When I was 11 years old, this bands already had made a great impact in my life and made me begin to think about become a musician. By the age of 13 I’ve asked my father for an acoustic guitar, which he refused to give me. Only when I was 18 I could buy my first guitar and start realizing my dream of becoming a musician. After a whole year playing this guitar, I’ve joined Straggler (Hard Core/Thrash Metal). After that, I put together some friends and created the band Blind Hate (Thrash Metal). I’ve also played at Advena (Heavy Metal) and Abalone (Blues/Rock n’ Roll), basically at the same time that I started to organize LOST FOREVER with some friends from my town. Furthermore, I played in some gigs with the Arte Profana band (Pop Rock) in 1999, but since then I’m fully dedicated to LOST FOREVER.
The first contact I had with heavy metal happened when I was 15 years old, when I heard the albums “...And Justice For All” (Metallica) and “Live After Death” (Iron Maiden). At first I thought the way this bands sounded as somewhat odd, but quickly I got used to it. At the age of 17, I’ve watched my first metal concert: Sepultura – on their “Arise” tour, in Rock in Rio II (1991). Man, that was a punch in the stomach! I just couldn’t believe the energy between the band and the crowd, all those “mosh pits” during their concert and the mass of sound coming out of the P.A.’s... From this day on I was hooked and never stopped listening to metal. As a drummer, I started playing when I was 16 years old. By the age of 18, I started to study the instrument and took it more seriously. I had some private lessons with some great musicians from my town. When I was 21, I joined some courses and workshops with drummers such as Dámasso Cerruti, Claudio Infante and others. After this period I kept as self taught musician, always keeping up to date with any news in the drum world.
