Taufik or frequently called Opic was born in Jakarta, 28th January 1994 is the youngest amongst his brothers. His musical journey started when he was joining his brother's band which genre Progressive Rock, 7 years ago.
Starting his career as a bassist, Opic joined his school band and frequently competing on several band competitions around 2011 to 2013. During that period, his band won many titles not only on school level but also up to the local Province level.
Furthermore as the time goes by, his musical journey lead him to make a twist into another instrument, which is drums. He is lately joining Indonesian Drum Squad (IDS) that is encouraging him more to play and explore his ability on it. He is privileged to be the leading IDS member on Metal genre that assures him a place to play on every IDS gig.
At the third quarter of 2016, the moment that has been waited finally came as mrfritzfaraday asked him to fill the vacancy of Bless the Knights' drummer left by Q. This was a little bit ridiculous since Opic was priorly an additional bassist to Bless the Knights back in 2015. He didn't need a long time to gel with the lads and directly joined the band's latest tour around Java.
Aggression, Power Horse, Progressive maniac, Gospel chops and Metal minded are words to describe his drum-playing style. Those were due to his musical preferences that was really crazy on genres like Progressive/Metal, Rock and Fusion.
Opic is also influenced by some modern metal bands, such as Dream Theater, Periphery, Monuments, The Faceless, Born of Osiris, After the Burial, Animals ad Leaders, and modern fusion bands like Dirty Loops and Casiopea while Dream Theater's Mike Mangini, Animals as Leaders' Matt Gartska, Periphery's Matt Halpern, Alex Rudinger, The Aristocrats' Marco Minemman and Casiopea's Akira Jimbo were big names who inspire his style. As other lads, Opic is also hanging a big dream and struggling for their international dreams.
Please welcome Bless the Knights new drummer...
