Heavy As Texas guitarist MARZI MONTAZERI will unleash The Uprising, featuring TIM “RIPPER” OWENS on vocals this June.
Known for his groundbreaking musicianship and energetic showmanship, MARZI MONTAZERI – AKA “The High Priest Of Distortion” — is a guitarist, producer, and songwriter from Houston, Texas. In the mid ‘90s, MONTAZERI joined Superjoint Ritual and in 2010 rejoined forces with Philip H. Anselmo to work on Anselmo’s first solo project, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals. The Illegals would go on to release the War Of The Gargantuas EP, followed by the Walk Through Exits Only LP, which debuted at the #34 on Billboard Top 100 chart, and finally the Scion A/V issued Housecore Horror Film Festival EP.
By 2015, MONTAZERI and Washburn Parallax Guitars united to co-design his own signature electric guitar series called “The Priestess” which was officially unveiled at this year’s edition of NAMM in Anaheim, California. MONTAZERI’s collaborations as a guest artist include Prong, Doug Pinnick (Razr 13), Defiatory, and the Judas Priest tribute record Hell Bent Forever, also featuring TIM “RIPPER” OWENS.
