Jarmo got his first guitar when he was 12 years old. Practice mostly self-learning, apart from a few lessons and band courses. When the basics were assimilated, he formed a band with a few buddies. At that point metal music was already in the picture, and it was the thing to do now and in the future. They recorded some demos and did a few gigs, and then died out in silence.
Jarmo had been playing bass alongside the guitar, but it was not until 2013, when Mournful Lies and Nescitus were born, that he started to focus on the deeper frequencies. Again, a few records and gigs, then silence.
Many years later, Jarmo moved from Oulu to Helsinki. He got bored with playing alone at home, and decided to contact Creinium. Jarmo joined Creinium as a bassist in the beginning of 2018, finally ending Creinium’s long search for a bassist.
