In his first years in Hamburg during the early 2000s he has been working as a studio guitarist for certain well known German bands as “Mr. Midnight” on their album recordings.
In 2015 Nils joined the US based classic-rock band “Kingdome Come” for their official “Monsters of Rock Cruise East” reunion with the original bandmembers Lenny Wolf, JB Frank and the great Danny “Stag” Steigerwald.
Nowadays Nils is playing guitar in “Die Krupps”, Germany’s legendary Industrial metal band around Jürgen Engler, Ralf Dörper and – back in the 90s – Lee Altus from Exodus.
Together with “Die Krupps”, he conqueres stages at festivals such as “Wacken Open Air”, “Butal Assault”, “M’era Luna” and plays headliner-shows all over Europe, Asia and North America.
