Mario "Skaahl" Liebl


I was born on May 21st, 1985 in Freyung, Germany. 

I got hooked on music at an early age and started playing my first instrument, the guitar when I was 14. By the age of 15 I already found my own band. It was a cover band with just a view songs. In 2012 I joined Nothgard. I was really enthusiastic about their style of music and impressed by their guitar techniques. It was a pleasure to have the chance to join them.

I spent my childhood in St. Oswald, doing a lot of sports (nowadays, not so much anymore :D) and had a good time with many friends. Driven by the interest in music, I started recording and mixing my own compositions at a young age. Besides, I built my own studio in the cellar of my parents’ house. So, big thanks to them for making that possible.

At the age of 16, I started an apprenticeship to become a mechanic. After successfully finishing my education, I worked for a couple of years and started a training as a certified industrial foreman in the metal sector. However, I wanted to make further progress in my career and started studying mechanical engineering.

My passion for music never faded, and I decided to sign up for a correspondence course to become a sound engineer. The combination of my professional knowledge and an in-house studio allow a lot of possibilities for doing what is the most fun to me: making music.
