Dimtris Kyriakidis is based in Doncaster (South Yorkshire - UK). He released his first single Air-Hunt in 2010, which has been getting very positive feedback from people in various countries. 2011 finds him cooperating with the extraordinary singer Goran Edman (mostly known through his collaborations with Yngwie Malmsteen and John Norum) on some of the material of an album that was finished in 2013, but is yet to be released.

He writes music in which influences from several styles are frequently fused. His influences come from Greg Howe, Tony McAlpine, Yngwie Malmsteen, Michael Romeo, Joey Tafolla, George Lynch, Vinnie Moore, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Allan Holdsworth, TNT, Europe, Def Leppard, Van Halen, Firehouse, Dokken, Bon Jovi, Warrant, White Lion, Guns N' Roses, Iron Maiden, Pink Floyd and many more rock/heavy metal bands. Influences originate also from the field of jazz and classical music. Most important for him are Wagner, Creston, Weber, J.S. Bach, Sibelius, Saint- Saens, Piston, Barber, Tchaikovsky and Grofe just to name a few.

Currently, he focuses on releasing his new material, doing session work as guitarist, as well as teaching privately electric guitar and music theory in the area of Doncaster.
