Music has always been a huge part of my life. When I was young, I used to listen to CDs on repeat all the time. My brother and I would spend days just listening to music and watching music videos.Through the years, we would listen to heavier rock and metal music more and more, even though I had a really hard time listening to the screaming vocals at first. But with time, I appreciated it. I still really enjoy melodies in music, which is why I would say I’m especially into metalcore and progressive metal. Bands I enjoy would be Periphery, Memphis may fire, Dream theater, As I Lay Dying, Blessthefall, etc.

I started drumming at 15 years old and, funny enough, I began learning through the game Rock Band 2. I went from easy to expert really fast and that’s when I knew I had some potential. Luckily for me, I already had a drum kit to practice at home, since my brother plays the drum as well. It wasn’t long after learning the drums that I got into a band and I started to take music more seriously. For a couple of years I would drum pretty frequently, even though I wasn’t in a band anymore. There was even a time where I stopped playing for almost 3 years because I just didn’t really have the time anymore. In February 2018, my brother announced that the drummer was leaving their band and he asked me if I would be interested in joining. I saw it as an opportunity that I couldn’t refuse, since I really missed playing and I had a lot more free time than I used to. So here I am playing with my brother in Eternal Closure! I just love doing shows and I can’t wait for the recording of our album, it’s going to be a blast!
