MORE ABOUT ZORNHEYM:
Zornheym is from Finspång, a small southern town in Sweden. Finspang comes wih a great musical legacy that was a center for black metal in the early 90's. After being entranced by artists and bands such as Yngwie Malmsteen, King Diamond, Slash, Twisted Sister and Iron Maiden, Zorneym picked up the guitar at the mere age of 12. He knew from that age on that music would be his calling. At the age of 16 the urge to play guitar after hearing ”Magnum Opus” with Yngwie J. Malmsteen became an obsession that ended up with practice session that lasted for 12 hours a day. At that time he also started buying a lot of different instructional VHS with his favourite guitar players.
In early 2000 he formed Suicidal Seduction that gained some underground reputation in Sweden and that released two Eps. By this time Zornheym composed all guitar and bass lines, even though he played lead guitar. He had become very interested in studying how to compose a song from every possible angle and to pull it all together as a solid unit.
In 2004 he discovered crust and immediately formed Aktiv Dödshjälp. As the sole composer he handled both the guitar and bass duties. After various line up changes the band is now complete with their singer Roberth Karlsson (current singer for Scar Symetry)
In mid 2006 Emil Dragutinovic (ex-Marduk, ex-The Legion, ex-Devian) offered Zornheym to join forces with him and Legion (ex-Ophthalamia, ex-Marduk, ex-Witchery, ex-Devian) in their brand new band DEVIAN as their new bass player. The debut album ”Ninewinged Serpent” was already written, even though he played a big role with producing the vocals. During the recording process one of the guitar players left the band, that recently had signed a deal with CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS, the spot was offered to Zornheym instantly. On the their first tour, 8 weeks with Vader and SepticFlesh, Zornheym learned a lot about how to become a great stage presence. He was addicted to giving the crowd and fans their moneys worth. Together with Legion he would fire up the crowd every night. For the second album, "God to the Illfated” he composed a great deal of songs and arranged and produced a lot. After a few more tours the band was put to sleep soon after Legion's departure from the band in 2010.
In early 2011 Zornheym saw that DARK FUNERAL were looking for a new bass player which caught Zornyem's eye. After a few meetings with band leader Ahriman and Chaq Mol, Zornheym was offered the position as the band's new bass player. Together with them he has raised hell on some of the biggest stages around the world. Together they have toured Europe, North- Central and South America, Asia and Australia.
Now something else is lurking in the horizon.
