To start with mine -- it comes from one of my most favorite songs of one of my most favorite bands Jane's addiction. The song is called Slow Divers. You should hear it, it is in my opinion one of kind song.

Mine is based of the insanely bad ass swords man character from Rurouni Kenshin anime, In my vain attempt to corrolate my ability on guitar as being like a master ninja, though I am not that good yet. Someday!! Someday I might attain the status of a guitar ninja...

mine's pretty self-explanatory. its from Otto the Bus Driver's last words before being swept out o the ocean. (Zeppelin Rules)


i was heavily into Zeppelin at the time i joined, but i want to change it now because i've moved on so much
To improve technique and of course trying to keep all as clean as possible. I know my own limits and speed limits and so on I never play anything I'm not capable of. That wouldn't make any sense. After three years of playing I tried to play everything as fast as possible and that sounded, I would say, like shit, and I didn't realize that if I'd play bit slower things than I was capable of playing then everything would sound much better.

I just picked that nick because i like the sound of it. I always liked the sound of it. Peeps think i got it off the Smurfs or Dogma or the bible. Not true - i realy just liked that nick - dunno where i first heard it. however - meanwhile i´m starting to realy identify myself with it - i think when you scream "Azrael" on the street i will turn around and raise my hand *LOL*. And it will for sure be my artists nick on every production i´m involved in.

Despite what some people think my name has nothing to do with how smart I am (I'm arrogant but not conceited :)).

"The Divine Sage" is the layman's term for salvia divinorum. And it just sounds cool.
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

As you can see here, there are as many reasons for the names as there are people to wear them.

I got my frome wrestling. It's one of the Hardy boyz' moves. But to me it kinda makes me think how life is full of "twists" and turns and which everyone you take that's your fate.
