Biography

Mattias “IA” Eklundh (born 1969 in Gothenburg, Sweden) is a guitarist and vocalist, known for his work with the bands Freak Kitchen, Frozen Eyes, Fate, The Jonas Hellborg Trio, and Art Metal; he has also released several noted solo albums.[2] He was also prominently featured playing his trademark-style solos on 3 Soilwork albums.

Mattias Eklundh is the lead guitar player of Swedish power trio Freak Kitchen. He has received much attention from the guitar community for his skilled and highly unconventional style of guitar playing. His music is very distinct, as it is both complicated and playful at the same time.

Outside of Freak Kitchen, Eklundh has recorded several solo albums, and made appearances as a guest musician for Swedish heavy metal bands like Evergrey and Soilwork. His two “Freak Guitar” solo albums were released on Steve Vai’s Favored Nations label, and include drawings and other artwork from friend Anders Nyberg. In 2005, he grouped with Swedish bass guitarist and composer Jonas Hellborg in the Jonas Hellborg Trio along with drummer Jeff Sipe and played their first gig in Mumbai, India, and followed with a tour of India.
