Hi friend! Welcome to my page.




I’m Paul. My life behind the drum set has led me through a rich tapestry of musical genres – from the intensity of blast beats and double pedal attacks, through the electronic and pop landscapes, all the way to the nuanced world of jazz and other musical styles.

Away from the stage, I enjoy my quiet moments in Berlin, immersing others as well as myself in my love for rhythms and music, and promoting a sense of positivity wherever i can.

From 2006 to 2013, I found my rhythm with Berlin’s extreme-metal band WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH. Our journey together included four albums and a whirlwind of over 500 live shows across continents from Europe, USA, Australia to Russia, culminating in a memorable final performance in December 2013.

However, the beat goes on. As of 2014, I’ve been the steady heartbeat of post-metal group THE OCEAN (also known as The Ocean Collective). Our shared adventures have taken me on extensive tours through Europe, North and South America, Australia, and more…

Meanwhile, I also joined hands with Simon (ex-WFAHM), John of (ex-SWWAATS, GIGAN), and Keith (CONQUERING DYSTOPIA) to breathe life into our project NIGHTMARER. Our goal is to distill the most extreme elements of our previous musical adventures and push them to a new, exhilarating level.

I’ve also ventured into solo work with my project, FERN. This venture lets me explore other facets of my creativity, blending Doom Pop, Electronic music, and Industrial Rock. My debut album under this project, “Intersubjective”, was released in September 2022.

Over the years, I’ve been fortunate enough to drum and perform with an impressive range of talented artists, such as dreamy post-pop songwriter “Like Lovers“, the avantgarde post-rock band “Dioramic“, and other well-known German artists like “Casper“, “SAFI“, and “Tristan Brusch“.

With a drumstick in hand for over 20 years, more than 1000 live performances across the globe, and countless studio recordings, my drumming journey has been as versatile as it is rewarding. It’s offered me the opportunity to travel, connect with new people, share good vibes, and spread positivity through the universal language of music.

Check out the TOUR DATES section to see where I’m about to hit the stage next, make sure to check some of the releases I’ve been part of HERE, and don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.

Much love,
