Sami Lopakka is a Finnish guitarist and an author. Lopakka was one of two guitarists for the metal band Sentenced until it disbanded (1989–2005). Lopakka was the band's main lyric writer and was also considered the spokesman for the band.
Since 2007 he has been the guitarist and main song writer in the Russian-singing Finnish metal band KYPCK, with whom he plays a custom baritone guitar built around a Kalashnikov AK-47 assault rifle by Amfisound Guitars.
As an author, Lopakka's debut novel Marras was published in January 2014 by Like Kustannus Oy in Finland. His short story Uudet lasit was published in the Finnish edition of Granta literary magazine in the same year.
