In his homeland, his first experience inside the metal was the lead vocalist in the bands Evolution in 1994 and Insania in 1995, with the latter changing its name to Fairy Mirror in 1999, gaining national status. However, due to problems in vocal cords, Saeko was forced out of the Fairy and had to travel to Switzerland, where he had to undergo surgery and prolonged treatment, while taking the opportunity to improve themselves in English.

After making all the assessments, Ratz produces and releases his first album, “Above Heaven, Below Heaven”, with the training: Saeko (keyboard and piano), Michael Ehre (guitar), Hermman Frank (lead guitar) and bassist his former band, Fairy Mirror, Mariko Inoue.
