I'm Vancampo Didier (born 19/08/1983) and I play bass since I was 15 years. It's my
first and last instrument I took up.
I've always loved music and many genres and the reason why I wanted to play bass came
while listening to my first Metal bands which were Iron Maiden - Judas Priest and Metallica.
Especially Judas Priests Jugulator, Metallica's Load and Master of Puppets made a huge
impact on me and Ian Hill, Jason Newsted and Cliff Burton made me want to play Bass.
I totally loved the bass sound of the Load album (Ain't My Bitch and King Nothing)
and I felt that that was the instrument that I wanted play.
After a year, I joined my first band and played through numerous "beginner"
bands without any stage performance. My first real band was Bloodfart in which I played
the Bassguitar at for a year (2003 - 2004). In 2004 I joined the Death Metal Band Fractured
Insanity and stayed with the band till February 2011. During that period I played at
Huldrefolk, Fleshmould, Burning Fallus and Corpse Mutilation. A few months prior to
my departure at Fractured Insanity I joined the Symphonic Black Metal Band Saille and
till the present day I'm active in this great band. I progressed from 4 string to 5
string bass in a year and now I play 6 string bass exclusively.
My main influences are (as stated above) Ian Hill - Jason Newsted and Cliff Burton
but I'm also a big fan of Chris Breeze (Labÿrinth - Italy), Makoto Unno (Vigilante
- Jap), Eric Langlois (Cryptopsy - Can), Jimmy Haslip (Yellow Jackets - US), John Myung
(Dream Theater - US), and Geddy Lee of the mighty Rush.
