Halls of Sky
- Year Released
I used to play in this band called Tunturia. The main songwriter, Ihor, got me really into this band from California called Tristeza. We both loved them and in all honesty, tried to emulate them. In 2007 we put out an album (Maps), influenced by them, among other bands like Jacob, Isis and Metallica. Thankfully, the album was well received. I’m very proud of it.
Seven years later, after multiple lineup changes in the band (having left the band myself), Tunturia released an album (Halls of Sky) that features the drummer from Tristeza, James Lehner. It’s pretty cool to hear the drummer from one of my favorite bands growing up, who heavily influenced my playing, play on an album released by a band that I helped start! My history with the band Tunturia is definitely one of the best experiences of my life.
