Ultimate-Guitar: Which guitarists influenced your style the most when you first started playing guitar?
Mårten Hagström: I first started playing, at least seriously, when I was 12 years old. Alex Lifeson from Rush was huge for me. He played really interesting things melodically and put all kinds of cool things in his arrangements but it never sounded bloated. He approached it from a songwriting standpoint and that’s what I loved about him. James Hetfield was another guy I admired. His rhythm chops are incredible.
