Japans Metal Bible "Burrn! Magazine" proclaimed Johnny Ohlin to be the best guitarist of 1994

Johnny Öhlin

Guitarist, Composer, Lyricist

AOR, Neoclassical/Shred, Progressive Melodic Metal

"The riffs are very good but his solo work is simply incredible. He not only simply shreds but it is done with a lot of feeling as well. There is definitely a neo-classical feel to his playing style which boosts the songs to that extra level and makes them that much more memorable."

A thousand lifetimes:  

"Musicians are some of the most driven, courageous people on the face of the earth. They deal with more day-to-day rejection in one year than most people do in a lifetime.

Every day, they face the financial challenge of living a freelance lifestyle, the disrespect of people who think they should get real jobs, and their own fear that they'll never work again.Every day, they have to ignore the possibility that the vision they have dedicated their lives to is a pipe dream. With every note, they stretch themselves, emotionally and physically, risking criticism and judgment.

With every passing year, many of them watch as the other people their age achieve the predictable milestones of normal life - the car, the family, the house, the nest egg.

Why? Because musicians are willing to give their entire lives to a moment - to that melody, that lyric, that chord, or that interpretation that will stir the audience's soul.

Musicians are beings who have tasted life's nectar in that crystal moment when they poured out their creative spirit and touched another's heart. In that instant, they were as close to magic, God, and perfection as anyone could ever be.

And in their own hearts, they know that to dedicate oneself to that moment is worth a thousand lifetimes."

-David Ackert, LA Times.
