Background: Born in Poland, Slavo received his first acoustic guitar at the age of 12. Upon hearing the Sex Pistols two years later, and Jimi Hendrix a year after that, Slavo bought an electric guitar and learned exotic scales along with the basics. Slavo migrated to the U.S. in late 2003, and soon recorded his first CD, Unleashed Dream, using Logic Pro 7. Although in the progressive-shred vein, the compositions are very inventive, and have a Euro-industrial soundtrack bent, driven by his intense approach and melodic flair.
