Default Multi-instrumentalists

Essentially, I would be talking more about your one-man bands here, but anyone who can play more than one instrument is technically seen as a multi-instrumentalist. So who are your favourites? I find a lot of them, from the limited experience I've had, tend to crop up in Black Metal and some in Prog Rock.

You have of course Pantopticon, which is basically Austin Lunn (also known as Austin Lundr, as, rather unbelievably, there is also a producer called Austin Lunn, who was involved in the mixing and production of some of the Panopticon albums), who generally writes, sings and plays everything.


Then there's his mate who goes only under the name of Lord Sardonyx (yeah) and comes from Iowa, whose project is called When Bitter Spring Sleeps. Both he and Lunn tend to veer off in the direction of more folkish, traditional and, in His Lordship's case, Pagan Metal directions, with the result that it would appear you can rarely be certain what to get from either, but it is always worth listening to.


In the prog rock arena we have Englishman Andrew Marshall, who performs under the name of Willowglass

American Blake Carpenter, who uses the name The Minstrel's Ghost

and Arjen Lucassen, best known as founder and driving force behind Ayreon


Can't forget the legendary Mike Oldfield

and our own, surely soon to be equally legendary Mondo Bungle

(To be filled in once Mondo gives me a video I can use.

Hope this counts....but for Wintersun's first album Jari did everything except for the drums and I consider that album a masterpiece.
