Sami is the newest member of Kreator. In the early 2001 he replaced the previous lead guitarist Tommy Vetterli who chose to part from the band. Sami is a 29 years old guy from Finland and he also plays guitar in three other bands: Jimsonweed, Waltari and All Human Substitutes. But even though his other bands are nothing like Kreator, playing fast thrash metal isn't new to the man. When Mr. Vetterli broke his arm a few years ago, Sami was asked to fill him in on some gigs and summer festivals. He also has played songs like "Tormentor" with his first band a decade and a half ago, so he obviously is a long-time fan too.
Here's a little rundown of his bands and projects:
1987-1989 guitarist in Brainwash
1989-1995 guitarist in Waltari
1995-1999 living in Berlin and Dortmund; tours with Kreator, session studio musician with Tiamat, Kyyria and Grip Inc., making music in In Rags
1999-2000 replaced Roope Latvala in Waltari on "Radium Round" promo gigs and on a European Tour, acoustic guitar on "Evangelicum" live shows at Finnish National Opera
2000-2001 back in Finland, occupied in four bands: Waltari, Kreator, Jimsonweed and All Human Substitutes.
2001- full-time member in Kreator, still plays in the other three bands, as well.
After quite a few years away from the visible hard rock scene, Germany's legendary Accept have returned to the metal forefront with an elated new singer, a euphoric new album and global tours. Yes, Accept are back to carry on the timeless tradition of the infectious, immediately identifiable Accept sound, but with fresh ideas and a matured outlook on music and life. A new era begins!
Early Years (The 70s – 1982)
The band's career began in 1976, when the initial stable and professional line-up of Accept (vocalist Udo Dirkschneider, guitarists Wolf Hoffmann and Gerhard Wahl, bassist Peter Baltes and drummer Frank Friedrich) was invited to play at one of the first rock and roll festivals from Germany — Rock am Rhein. Following the festival, the band received their first recording deal. It was the self-titled Accept album. Friedrich and Wahl quit the band after the release of of the debut record, as they did not intend to pursue a professional career in music. They were soon replaced by new drummer Stefan Kaufmann and guitarist Jörg Fischer. This line-up proceeded to record the sophomore record, I'm a Rebel in 1980. The title track originally was written for AC/DC but they never released it. This was the album that finally brought initial media attention to the band.
1981 saw three major events in the early history of Accept. First, the acclaimed album Breaker was released. Second, a contract with manager Gaby Hauke was signed, an agreement that is still in effect today. Third, Accept joined Judas Priest's world tour and obtained a fair amount of success, making the band known outside of Europe.
The next album, Restless and Wild, was released in 1982. Restless and Wild saw an evolution in the band's personality and sound, which incorporated several characteristics of a revolutionary new genre which would later be called "speed metal". This recording however, did not include Jörg Fischer, who quit the band a short time before the studio sessions took place. Jan Koemmet was hired as Accept's new guitarist, but departed from the band before the recording sessions for the album. The line-up was eventually completed with Herman Frank on second guitar.
Swallow The Sun
For a prolific band (they’ve released five albums since their inception in 2000, three in as many years since 2006), Swallow The Sun have surely not been one to disappoint. Reliably bottling the gloomy atmosphere of Finland into equally gloomy metal.
