Finnish guitarist/producer focused on heavy complex grooves, hard-hitting metal and savagely snarling synths.
I'm a composer, guitarist and producer with 20 years of combined experience, education and work in music. I'm happy to work with you as a guitarist, mixing or mastering engineer, drum track producer, sample replacer, songwriter/arranger, quantization/pitch/comping editor.
I have a knack for writing MIDI drums. I work effortlessly in odd meters and polyrhythms, I edit fast and can produce meticulously realistic results for any genre, especially metal, tech death, progressive.
I work from my home studio with high-level tools, including NeuralDSP amplifier simulations, GetGood Drums, Submission Audio bass instruments and FabFilter mix plugins.
Besides metal and progressive music, video games have a special place in my heart. I work as Audio Lead at Dreamloop Games, the creators of Stardust Galaxy Warriors: Stellar Climax, whose well-received soundtrack is my first official game soundtrack release.
I'm easy to work with and contact-friendly, so just send me a message and let's talk about your project! Or, have a conversation about whether or not Final Fantasy VII soundtrack is the best OST in the world...
I'm formally trained in music technology and pedagogy. But as with everything, I believe that good communication, persistence, ambition and strength of vision are what truly take your track from just solid, to great.
Thanks for checking me out.

Matias is first and foremost a wonderful human being: polite and mindful by nature, he has also a superlative work ethic and he's not afraid to speak his mind and to challenge ideas to make it "sound better":) He's also one of the best guitarists I had the pleasure to work with: super tight, great tone, inspired and inspiring.
Matias is the whole package. I had a blast working with him and I'll surely work with him in the future.
Matias is a hell of a guitarist. He didn't just nail the part, he cared about the song, and that's something money can't buy. Definitely going to work with him again.
