Björn Daigger is a professional guitarist, songwriter and guitar teacher from Mannheim, Germany.
He studied guitar at the FMS Aschaffenburg as a student of Rolf Bussalb (NIGEL KENNEDY) and David Becker (DAVID BECKER TRIBUNE) and made his diploma in 2008. As a member of German metal outfit MAJESTY, Björn toured throughout Europe and played shows as support for rock and metal legends such as ALICE COOPER, MANOWAR, CHILDREN OF BODOM, SABATON and QUEENSRYCHE. The 2006 album “Hellforces” (produced by the former ACCEPT-drummer Stefan Kaufmann) entered the German Top 100 album charts.
In 2010 Björn joined German rock newcomers GLOOMBALL. In 2012 the band signed a worldwide record deal with Germany’s premier Rock and Metal label, Steamhammer, a division of SPV GmbH and performed at the Frankfurt Music Fair. The debut album “The Distance” was released in April 2013, followed by concert tours with MOTORJESUS and EAT THE GUN. The second GLOOMBALL album “The Quiet Monster” was released in March 2015 – right after GLOOMBALL supported HÄMATOM on their tour through Germany. “The Quiet Monster” stayed six weeks in the top 30 of the official German Metal Rock Charts.
Currently Björn plays lead guitar for Hamburg-based Speed Metal-Band STORMWARRIOR, with whom he toured through Europe and Latin America and released in 2019 the critically acclaimed album “Norsemen” (Massacre Records/Soulfood).
