Guitarist K.K. Downing is a legendary and founding member of worlds finest heavy metal band Judas Priest. Over 30 million albums sold worldwide makes Judas Priest one of the best selling metal acts in history. I’ve been a Priest maniac since I was 12 when I bought myself a copy of ‘Painkiller’. You can only imagine my thrill in 2007 when I was asked to be a member of team to build the official website to K.K. Downing himself. Back then we created a website called ‘Steel Mill’ and it has been running full force since then. I’ve been working together with other ‘millworkers’ for many years now as we interview other artists, write album and gig reviews, share updates from K.K. and write columns of various topics in metal genre.
I’ve been responsible mostly for the graphic design and technical stuff but I’ve also written some reviews, columns and done interviews. This gallery shows some of the graphics I’ve been involved with. I have also been responsible of K.K.’s MySpace, YouTube and Facebook page. I have met K.K. several times, drank many pints with him and had an jam metal session of Judas Priest songs in my friends garage. I can say he is really down to earth guy and fun to work with. Just like my fellow millworkers.
Here are some articles and interviews I’ve done to the site:
- Comments and reviews to article about Judas Priest’s logo history
- Drupal based website of Sauna Open Air 2011 with pictures and gig reviews
- Waltari live review
