I play bass in the metalband Lost in lunacy. We play a sort of mixture of industrial and death or something, i dont know. You can listen to our music here:
http://www.attitude.nu/lostinlunacy (the page is in swedish but just click on the songs and it should work out fine)

I also used to play in a cross-overmetalband called Emperious(1998-2000).

You find the songs from our only demo; Days in the slaughterhouse here:
http://www.attitude.nu/emperious

And i have just started working on a soloproject called Frequency Bengt.
It's based on the unusual(and very difficult to play) musical instrument: theremin.
The theremin is the first electronic musical instrument invented in 1920 by Russian engineer Leon Theremin. It is played without ever touching the instrument and you've might have heard it in old horror movies from the fifties.

More information here: http://www.thereminworld.com/

I have only recorded one song and it can be downloaded here:
http://www.attitude.nu/theremin

...Acoustic and Electric guitar. And I've recently started to learn to play the keyboard shindig. Easier to get to grips with than I initially anticipated.

There was a similar thread a few months ago, so to summarize:

Keyboard, although I don't study any more.

I play piano a lot and work almost without any stop on notching up my musical skills with creating music.

You can find how far I got half a year ago by downloading the track 'sundown for arabia' on http://www.brainkiller.it/bk%2Dmusic...essegorter.php

(please check it out ; ).

I am grade 7 on trumpet (and for you un-British people, which is most of you, there are 8 grades).

Dang that's good, the most I ever got was about half a year's worth of lessons for the piano. I know someone with grade 8 (or 7, but I think it is 8) piano though. Very good he is too.

Vocals are my best. I'm pretty damn shitty at guitar. I can play the harmonica fairly well though, because I had to learn them for some Beatles tunes (ala "Love Me Do").

Clarinet (about grade 3 or 4, ive never taken a proper grading), keyboard (anything I can pick up, transpose from clarinet, etc.) and a little guitar (a few songs i can pick up, eg come as you are, today,etc., or that I ask my Bro to teach me, most of which I forget)

I've played violin earlier, and still got some skills of it. Now I'm practicing a little bit at the synth in my school.
