PatrikPatrik Essman // Vocals & Guitar
Patrik started singing at a young age, joining the local boys choir when he was 10 years old. In his teenage years he sang in various punkbands and released a couple of CD´s, but with his love of metal growing stronger, he quit playing punk and started a black metal soloproject called Vittra (still active), back in early 2000. It was within this project he took up the guitar for the first time and began writing music. In the following years, he created a gothic metal band called Dispirit, which was the first step towards the sound as we know now in Myrah.
Patrik finds inspiration in nature, and many of his songs deal with that matter.
