Ego Kill Talent
Most memorable Next-Level PerformancePlaying the first Metal concert ever in Havana, Cuba with Sepultura in front of 80.000 people was one of the most remarkable moments in my life. Another great one was when I played with Ego Kill Talent at Maracanã stadium touring with the Foo Fighters in Brazil in 2018.
