KONSTA KAIKKONEN IS CURRENT MEMBER IN
Instrument: Vocals & Guitar
Musical background: Konsta's first contacts with music happened before schoolage (7 years in Finland) thorought a music-oriented kindergarten and some piano lessons. When going to primary school, the interest, however, ended and Konsta didn't basicly have any contact with musical instruments. Many years after that, Konsta de(i)cided to play bass in a school ball, at the age of 13 years. And thus his interest towards music was reborn. Later that year, after starting lower secondary school, Konsta got his first electric guitar as a Christmas present and started to study playing it independently. A year later Konsta joined the Kulosaari school band and formed a band called The Jugurtters (later known as The Legendary Northworld) with Roni and Matti. That autumn Konsta also began taking guitar lessons with Martti Huttunen. After that, Konsta has went to study at the music-oriented Sibelius Upper secondary school, joined a heavy rock group called Exalte and formed a death metal band, carrying the name of Bloodstained. Konsta has also worked with some other musical projects, worked as a part-time instrument sales(wo)man and started taking singing lessons (i need them, don't you think?). And stayed metal, of corpse!,,/
