Guitarist

Ronni Le Tekrö

Featured on Funeral Tango for Gods and Men. Norway’s definitive guitar hero and hard rock icon Ronni Le Tekrö pushes the album’s closer “Positively Draconian” right over the edge with his classic and unmistakable runs. His artistic flare fits right in with HexA.D.’s rather grand sound, and it is not by coincidence that he plays on the last track on the album.
