Laki


Greek guitarist Laki Ragazas is one of the true Rock'n'Roll guitarists in Europe, in the Hard'n'Heavy music scene. With his highly technical, yet very soulful playing and his impressive live performance, he sweeps any audience away.
He is the co-founder of the Heavy Rock'n'Roll band Devil's Train, together with Mystic Prophecy singer Rd Liapakis, drummer Jörg Michael (ex-Stratovarius) and bass player Jari Kainulainen (Masterplan, ex-Stratovarius). Devil's Train released two albums, "I" in 2012 and "II" in 2015. His distinctive style of power heavy riffs and blazing, fast, powerful solos became the band's trademark. Besides his work with Devil's Train, Laki Ragazas also played with Mystic Prophecy, Germany's top power metal band, and released two albums with them, "Killhammer" in 2013 and "War Brigade" in 2016. With them he toured extensively worldwide. Among his successes over the years is the release of an album with top English-German singer Oliver Weers in 2011, played as session guitarist for ex-Iron Maiden singer Paul DiAnno in 2008, and among countless session recordings and studio work, he received a scholarship from the Berklee Music College in Boston, holds Harmony and Counterpoint Certificates and built up his own music school, where he has been successfully offering guitar lessons and seminars for years.
