Marc Rizzo is one of the new breed of young guitarists in contemporary bands and has built a substantial following through his years of touring and recording with ILL NINO, SOULFLY and now breaking metal history with shredding for metal icons Max and Iggor Cavalera in CAVALERA CONSPIRACY.

Rizzo has stepped out with solo projects that reveal a phenomenal command of the guitar. Both solo albums unveils Rizzo to be a master musician with deep musical roots in metal, classical and flamenco guitar.

Colossal Myopia is a mixture of all the music that Rizzo listens to. It’s a combination of metal, nuevo flamenco and jazz.

“I don’t really listen to one type of music and I think my record showcases that,” explains Rizzo. “It’s an all instrumental CD for music lovers that want to enjoy pure music without all the politics and negative lyrical content.”

"The Ultimate Devotion" is Marc Rizzo’s solo sophomore release on Shrapnel Records. This newly mastered work of shred-art comes on the coat-tails of his critically acclaimed debut album Colossal Myopia in 2006.

"The Ultimate Devotion" is a myriad of Rizzo’s amazing talent to also combine flamenco and pure unadulterated shred mastery.

“'The Ultimate Devotion' is a total representation of where I am at musically right now,” explains Rizzo. “I feel I really pushed myself on this record to the next level of my playing. This music, for me, is the ultimate devotion.”

Rizzo’s raw energy combined with the talent of a new-generation shred-master is a much needed breath of fresh air to the instrumental rock genre.
