Hi, my name is Ronald Tielen and I’m playing the guitars in Beyond god. When I was 14 years old, my dad gave me his guitar for my birthday. He thought that I would like to make music, but he never expected me to end up in Beyond god. 

By the time I was 17, I decided to form a band for fun and wanted to see how it would go. It was really cool to make our own compositions so I tried to raise the bar, but the others didn’t share the same ambition. So, we couldn’t get along and everything went down on their conditions. 

After some time, other bands contacted me to be their new guitarist, which was really cool to hear. I played in several bands for the past 6 years. A friend of mine sent me a link of Beyond God and said that they were looking for a new guitar player. So I sent some videos of me playing the guitar. After a few days Ferry contacted me to do an audition. He gave me 2 weeks to learn the entire first album, 1 rehearsal and 1 gig. After 2 hard weeks of learning everything, we performed together for the first time, on stage in Kampen. It was really cool! Some time passed and one day Ferry called me to say they wanted me as the new guitar player of Beyond god. 

So I ended up gladly with the awesome Ferry Guns, Lukasz Kubaszak and Meryl Foreman in Beyond God! They announced me on the 9th of November as their new guitarist at the release show of their 2nd album ‘Dying To Feel Alive’. I played only the last song with them, but it felt like I was playing the whole gig! 

After the release, I am fully committed to do the best I can for the band, write good music, be a part of the team and make the most of it. This is the point in my life where I can do the things I love the most: making music with these awesome people!
