Peter Tägtgren

Real/full name:
Alf Peter Tägtgren
53 (born Jun 3rd, 1970)
Place of birth:
Sweden (Ludvika, Dalarna)


Tägtgren started playing drums at the age of 9 and later learned to play guitar, bass and keyboard.

After Tägtgren's first band Conquest disbanded, he emigrated to the United States. There he became part of the death metal scene after participating in practice sessions with Malevolent Creation's guitarist, Phil Fasciana. Tägtgren moved back to Sweden and formed the band Hypocrisy, at this time ...


Brother of Tommy Tägtgren. Father of Sebastian Tägtgren.

During the recording of the Pain album Dancing with the Dead, his heart stopped beating for several seconds and it caused him to panic. This event inspired him to write the song Dancing with the Dead.
