At age 11, Robert started playing guitar after hearing the Ace Frehley's solo in the song "Shock Me" on Kiss' Alive II album. He was influenced by early metal acts like Motley Crue, and Poison. But his tastes turned to the dark side after hearing Iron Maiden's "Live After Death" album. In 1986, Robert discovered what heavy music was all about upon hearing Metallica's "Master of Puppets." Then he stumbled upon Slayer's "Reign In Blood" and "South of Heaven," forever changing his outlook on music. He knew that metal could be heavy, fast, and dark. He found the offerings from Metallica and Slayer, as the pinnacle of thrash music and began listening to other bands such as Pantera, Sepultura, Anthrax, Testament, Megadeth, Flotsam and Jetsam, and later death metal acts such as Morbid Angel, Obituary and Death. Robert found Leandro and Hooga through a mutual friend and was honored to be added on second guitar. After the departure of their bassist, Robert picked up the bass and handled the low-end duties. Now, after a brief departure from the band, he is back on second guitar to issue in a new era of Hooga.
