Kärtsy Hatakka, the leader and primus motor of the band Waltari , has become recognized as one of the most remarkable faces in the history of Finnish rock music. Waltari was the first Finnish band to start this well-known invasion of Finnish hard rock/metal music into Europe in early 90s. They signed a worldwide record deal with Roadrunner Records in 1992 and soon were one of the first Finnish rock bands to hit the European charts and stages in mid 90s. Besides Waltari Kärtsy, as a full time musician since 1991, has also had a lot of other remarkable musical engangements here and there in different fields of music, including a pioneering soundtrack work for a legendary Finnish computer game Max Payne (link) (parts 1 and 2). And now, as the newest project, he is continuing his solo artist career, which he already started some years back under a name K2, continuing it later with his other side project Wax-Real Time Orchestra.
