Ole Christian Öhman (born 13 October 1973)[1] is a drummer who played in Dissection but left the band after the album Storm of the Light's Bane was released in 1995.


He was the drummer for the Swedish industrial metal band Deathstars and is better known by the name "Bone W Machine", but has since parted ways.

In a January 2008 interview, Deathstars' vocalist Andreas Bergh stated that Öhman would not be playing with the group on their 2008 European spring tour with Korn as he "had to take care of his family back home".[2] The rest of the band members fully supported Öhman's decision, and they were adamant that he was not leaving the band, due to their strong convictions on the matter. This was later confirmed by a statement on Deathstars' official website.[citation needed]


In October 2009, Deathstars' bassist Skinny Kangur wrote in his blog that Öhman was diagnosed with a severe case of Tennis Elbow on his left arm and forced to leave the ongoing Into The Darkness Festival to give his arm some rest.[3] One show in Frankfurt had to be shortened but Öhman somehow managed to perform 45 minutes in severe pain. A long-time friend of the band, Oscar Leander from Crescendolls, had since then been in charge of the drummer position for Deathstars' live performances.

After two years of Öhman's absence, later in October 2011, an interview with Emil Nödtveidt [4] and a post in Deathstars' Facebook page [5] revealed that Ole Öhman had actually parted ways with Deathstars since 2010. Öhman himself has neither confirmed nor given any public appearance since his withdrawal in 2009.
