Julius Thölix

Ove sings and plays the guitar. He also writes most of the songs and lyrics and when needed plays also all types of other instruments. He is also quite hands on with producing Graceskull's music. Ove loves to make all kinds of music so he plays in a whole host of other bands which currently include The Conquistadors, The Royal Piss, The Bullets, Hills (of Vaasa) and Atyd. Ove has also played live guitar with The Sugarrush. Julius plays all types of keyboards, mostly sticking to his trusted Fender Rhodes and Hammond. He is heavily invested in the arrangement of Graceskull's song and also at times writes some of the music. Julius has a past of playing with a whole load of bands, currently he is a member of Jack Dalton Orchestra. Julle also makes custom amplifiers with his company Thölix Amps which Graceskull of course endorses.
With
Paati Wägar Paati bangs on the drums and is actually the drummer for just about every one of Ove's other bands too. He is also the drummer of The Sugarrush.
Andy J. Prinkkilä Andy is Graceskull bass maestro. He is actually first and foremost a guitar player and a singer for The Sugarrush and The Lieblings but as soon we forced him to take up Graceskull's bass duties we knew we had our man. He also is the other half of Ove's band The Royal Piss.
Jocke Kulju Jocke plays the guitar and does it probably better than anyone we know. He did a stint on the bass for us early on but ended up on guitar when Andy took up the bass. Jocke plays also in The Bullets (with Ove and Paati) plus in a whole load of other bands.

Arttu Peljo Arttu recorded and mixed not only The Once and Future but also Hills (of Vaasa), The Conquistadors and The Sugarrush too. He's a true master of his craft and is probably best known for his tremendous work on Chisu's records. Actually I think he pretty damn well known for his work on half of the records that make it Top 40 in Finland.
Ilkka Kujansivu Ilkka was one of the two founding members of Graceskull and sang on First Time Again. Nowadays runs Kinkt Records.
Tero Niemi El Tero-Teró was our very first bass player way back in the day and as it happens he also is primarily a guitar man. Plays in Past Week.
