“Music is everything to me. I’ve been through two divorces and a whole world of shit because of music but still it is the most important thing in the world to me. I’d rather have music than anything else.”

It’s been a career that has involved fronting bands – notably iconic death metal veterans HYPOCRISY, and now PAIN – or shaping their sounds – as he has done with SABATON, CELTIC FROST, CHILDREN OF BODOM, DIMMU BORGIR and IMMORTAL amongst others.
After the substantial success of Peter’s LINDEMANN project with RAMMSTEIN vocalist Till Lindemann, he retreated and took time to write another industrial metal statement entitled “Coming Home” (Released in September 2016)
