Practicing for the, as promised, upcoming drum cover. Can you guess what band/song it is? 🇵🇱
Yesterday's show in San José, Costa Rica was so much fun! Thank you so much! Tomorrow we head for Mexico and the last four shows of this amazing eight weeks North, South and Latin America tour!
Today was magical. I had the honour to play in my city of birth; Santiago, Chile. I held a small speech in Spanish (I don't speak Spanish) and I loved it. Thank you Santiago for being a lovely city with so many lovely people. I love you all. Here is a video of the speech filmed by my drum tech Krisz. I will be back. I promise. 🇨🇱♥️

While we wait for other things to happen..
Here's a song from the upcoming album I recorded for my friends in VOODUS last autumn.
I'm looking forward to the release of this album!

It's somewhat fast, so blast it LOUD!

Country: Sweden | Year: 2018 | Genre: Black Metal Track from the upcoming album 'Into the Wild'. To be released by Shadow records somewhere in 2018. - Voodus...

Throwback Thursday to August 7 last year in Italy. We were, for some reason, escorted to stage (50 metres) by armed guards. Earlier the same day I did my two hour warm up with two guards with machine guns next to me. DON'T FUCK UP!

Sorry about potato quality - it was dark.

I got to see the incredible, and somewhat weird, performance of the mighty Terry Bozzio yesterday.
I have no words. He is one of a kind.

Meanwhile I decide what song to cover, here's a brand new drum video of me playing Twilight Of The Thunder God!
Huge thanks to all the crew at Sick Drummer Magazine!

Jocke Wallgren - AMON AMARTH - Twilight of the Thunder God. Filmed at the Boulder Theatre, Boulder, CO on May 17, 2017.

Many of you are often requesting more drum covers.
I thought I might actually do one again, but which one?
Avantasia - The Seven Angels ?
Let me know in the comments what you want me to cover!

Well... Apparently Facebook did not want to remove this page. I tried, waited the two weeks without cancelling my request for deletion, but I’m still here. Weird.
Anyway, I might as well update:

Today I started recording drums for a session job. Most likely my last one for a while. Fast, melodic and blistering metal! 🤘🏼

After this current tour (September 5/6), I will remove this page (my artist page).
I will keep my private page and will also be available on my Instagram.
So, follow me there -->

When you want to warn someone for a major life threatening happening.
Thanks to my drum tech, who didn't die today because of this 6 cm of horrible devil winged hornet mother fucker.
