Johan Berggren

Metal drumming is intense, fast and extreme. What Johan does, is adding the groove. He doesn’t merely play the drums – he translates his parts into rhythmic percussive riffing.

Being a perfectionist, his brawls with his arch nemesis; the almighty metronome, always turns out in his favor. He is a human punching machine that gnaws his sticks down to small splinters not even worthy of being turned into plywood. Due to monstrous drum abuse his newly bought drum heads constantly change tuning, enraging him even more.

When Johan is not manhandling his Tama,
he rides on his motorbike or spends time with
his family.
