I'm a dude from Finland playing guitar, bass and drums. I play guitar and write for my band Wayfaerer. I also do whatever vocal duties necessary, and I quite enjoy belting out those deep tasty grunts from my bowels. I make no claims that I listen to every music there is, but in general I am pretty open minded. Still, all kinds of Metal are closest to my heart.
Outside music, my biggest interest is literature. I can digest pretty much anything,
though science fiction is, and has been for long, my dearest fascination.
Favourites? Pretty much everything from classic sci-fi godfathers Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Philick K. Dick and Stanislaw Lem. Also some "newer" authors from that field like Iain M. Banks and Alastair Reynolds.
As of specific ones, short list of bestestness:
Stanislaw Lem - Peace on Earth, Eden
Philip K. Dick - A Scanner Darkly, Ubik
Iain M. Banks - Walking on Glass, Use of Weapons
Outside science fiction, my deepest love goes to Raymond Chandler, with The Long Goodbye being one of my favourite novels ever.
