My biggest inspiration for starting to play the guitar, when I was fifteen, was Metallica, Slayer, Pantera and many other groups. I learned their immortal songs by listening to cassettes and composing my own stuff at the same time. From my 15 to 22 I tried to play with a lot of musicians, so my attend in bands was changing every moment, until we formed a band Science Fiction in 1998 together with my friends. During a short time we found a favor with a lot of fans, reporters and promoters of a concerts. It made us able to play with a well-known names such as Manowar, Paradise Lost, Chroming Rose or with our very popular band Kabát. Science Fiction worked till 2003, then I was trying to form a new band and in the same time I became a member of great Czech group Egotrip. Egotrip was basically created by me and Jirka Fojtík, who gained a lot of experience and inspiration during his sojourn in Florida. Egotrip exists since 2004 up to now together with my band called Proximity. We have been through many of big Czech festivals and concerts with a great bands such as In Flames, Anthrax, Waltari, Die Krups, top of Czech trash metal band Arakain, etc. Future plans are to continue to attack “the metalcore spirit of our fans” whether from the concerts, tv or radio and excellent collaboration with the company of the great metal tuned guitars Schecter :).

History of my musical career goes back to 1990, when I was mezmerized by electric guitar sound and heavy metal band sound.
Playing with my friends was not sufficient soon so I started to search for a better and more experienced musicians.
In 1995 we formed a band called Pessimist, that we recorded 2 CDs with and the cooperation lasted until 2004.
I created also a revival of the immortal and well-known band Death with the same people.
There were several concerts in clubs, festivals and first member changes.
In 2005 I started to transform partially different direction and created a band Dirty Game.
At the end of 2007 we recorded a CD called “Flame of Loneliness” and in 2008 we had a czech tour together with the band Arakain.
Then we had many offers to perform on the big festivals and clubs.
Another member changes suspend the work of Dirty Game for the time being.
In 2011 I received an offer from well-known and modern band Proximity.
We started to cooperate on the album Zero Point and the introduction of the CD in a club scene.
With the purchase of a new guitar appliances and especially great guitars Schecter we began to write a new history of PROXIMITY.
