In his own words:
Drumming is my life and groove is the air I breathe…
My trip to the world of music started at the age of 15.
I was not sure what instrument would fit me and after some unsuccessful attempts at the violin and bass guitar, I noticed that I was more and more attracted by the rhythm.
I started by playing traditional Greek percussions and two years later I ”moved” behind the drum kit.
My biggest influences are Gavin Harrison, Dave Weckl, Richard Christy, Scot Travis, Thomas Lang, Igor Cavalera.
Last but not least Fotis Benardo who is my drum mentor and teacher.
I have worked with many bands and many artists in different genres but my main field is metal music and this is something that Hatetrend are specialized at…
Everything in life is a matter of timing! And that’s a drummer’s job…
