Kristoffer Gildenlöw

Early on, Kristoffer placed himself as one of the most prominent progressive bass players in the prog metal scene with his very personal playing style with bands such as Pain of Salvation (S), Neal Morse (US), Dark Suns (D), The Shadow Theory (A), Lana Lane (US) and many more. Ranked 8’th best progressive bass player in the world in a recent poll. But Kristoffer is wider and deeper than that and his work and colabouration with a variety of artists and mands all over the world has putten his name on over 30 albums and several DVD’s from Pagan Rock to Singer Songwriter to Symphonic Rock to Djent. With his solo career, Kristoffer has showed a much deeper and darker side by mixing mellow singer songwriter with neoprog and symphonic music into minimalistic and tastefull creations of storytelling. Not only proving himself as a multi instrumentalist but also a singer.
