Aittala is the solo project of Eric Aittala.
Eric is a guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist living in the South Eastern US.
He grew up heavily influenced and inspired by the early metal and hard rock pioneers; Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Dio, etc...you get the point.
Eric's early song writing was basically a reformulation of those early inspirations; trying to sound like his heroes. But as he matured, so did his music. By 1991, he had built the basic foundation of the Aittala sound.
