Morbid Angel's Azagthoth Honored In Guitar World

MORBID ANGEL's guitar wizard Trey Azagthoth is included in a list of 'The 100 Greatest Metal Guitarists Of All Time' in the March 2004 issue of Guitar World magazine. Ranking at #55 on the star-studded list, Azagthoth is described as: "One of the most crazed characters to emerge from Florida's late-Eighties death metal scene... A frenzied player, he combines furious, angular power chords with ripping leads, but his songs never lack dynamics, since he often chugs through visceral, pick harmonic-tinted rhythms before lashing out with torrents of blinding noise." Among the other luminaries on the list are Tony Iommi, Eddie Van Halen, and Steve Vai. Congratulations to Trey!
