Peter Egtved

Birthday: November 21st.
Main instrument: Drums
Also playing: Bass, keyboards, guitar and various odds and sods.

Peter began playing classical percussion and has played with various symphony orchestras and several theatre ensembles. At one point he felt that there must be more to music than sheet-music, so he took on the drumkit and started playing heavy metal. He joined the rap-metal band SIAL and in 1995 they came in a respectable fourth place in the “DM i Rock” competition. His latest project was Maiden Copenhagen, an Iron Maiden cover band.
