Jesper Strömblad (born on November 28, 1972) was the Rhythm Guitarist, Founder & Eldest Member of the Swedish melodic death metal band In Flames.
Strömblad began playing music at age 4, with a violin he played until age 12. At age 12, he no longer considered the violin a 'cool' instrument to play and began playing guitar instead.
Strömblad is known for having played in and been a founding member of a series of bands and side projects. However, In Flames was his main band. Strömblad was the only remaining original member of In Flames and was the main songwriter for the band.
He is known to be an avid World of Warcraft player, even wearing a WoW t-shirt on stage at times. Whilst away from home on tour, he regularly plays World of Warcraft on his laptop with his fiancée, swedish model/BE Wendela, as a way of keeping in touch with her.
