Today we conclude our introduction round! Let's go :) Hey everyone, I’m Manuel, 27, and I’m the “new” guy in START/OVER. Unlike the others, I didn’t know any of them from previous projects. The second time I saw these guys I was about to play the “Laments” EP release show. I barely remembered all their names to be honest haha. So as you can tell things went pretty fast and sometimes I can’t even believe that it’s only been 5 months because it feels like I’ve known them for years.
I’ve been into music for as long as I remember but I got into metal when I was 12 and I heard Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit via friends. I was into completely different music before that but it just struck me and I’ve never looked back. Actually, if anyone can guess what music I was into before, I’ll send you a free S/O shirt and EP. If I ever told you, you cannot participate ;). I started playing guitar when I was about 16 but I never really thought of playing live. I hate being in front of people and I’m not really a social person. When I started my first “serious” band I even told them I wasn’t sure I would enjoy playing live. Few years later there’s nothing I’d rather do. Being on stage with these guys is one of my favourite things in life. Besides whiskey though, gotta love a good drink.
I don’t really write or compose music; my focus is more on the organisational part of the band. Working on promotion and other things that get our name and music out there.
I go to a lot of shows so feel free to say hi and drink a beer (or whiskey ;) when you see me.
