MARC RIZZO

MARC RIZZO

At 27, Marc Rizzo was already a household name among metal fans before finishing “Colossal Myopia”, his first solo record. A shredder’s shredder, Marc was a founding member of the immensely successful metal act “Ill Nino” with whom he recorded and toured. After leaving Ill Nino, he joined Soulfly in 2003 and played guitar on their fourth record “Prophecy” and every release since then. Rizzo also recorded and toured with Cavalera Conspiracy (a reunion of Sepultura's Max & Igor Cavalera) and launched his own Death Metal project, INPSYCHOBLEEDIA. Marc Rizzo is one of the new breed of young guitarists in contemporary bands who has stepped out recently with solo projects that reveal a phenomenal command of the guitar. His latest solo record, “LEGIONNAIRE” reveals Rizzo to be a master musician with deep musical roots in metal, classical and flamenco guitar and is a much needed breath of fresh air to the instrumental rock genre.

Guitar sales have been up and young musicians have been looking for younger, contemporary players to learn from. Marc Rizzo proves again on his solo records why he stands out from the rest, with an arsenal of staggering guitar chops that are bound to start a large groundswell in the guitar community, as guitar records of this skill and intensity are in short supply.


Marc has built quite a substantial following through his years of touring and recording with Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy and INPSYCHOBLEEDIA. The Shrapnel Label group has long been an indy leader and is known for recording superior musicians and their phenomenal guitar records featuring guitarists such as Yngwie Malmsteen, Tony MacAlpine, Marty Friedman, Vinnie Moore, Jake E Lee, Michael Schenker etc. Marc Rizzo is paving the way for a new generation of guitar oriented recordings.

Known for their intensity in both their music and live shows Boston based experimental death metal band The Summoned are being considered as fore-runners in the New England metal scene. They've been referred to such bands as Between The Buried and Me, The Faceless and The Red Chord but that doesn't stop them from experimenting with their sound but maintaining the intensity they're most known for. With Steve Thompson on Vocals, Josh Crocker and Shaun Murphy on Guitars, Justin Marchant on Bass, and Sam Hang on Drums The Summoned believes they have collectively brought out all their separate influences to create their own vision of experimental death metal.

Formed in the winter of 2007 in a span of just five years The Summoned has completed two east coast tours, a 23 day tour, a tour of Canada, played shows in fifteen+ states, released an EP, released a full length and has had the honor of opening for national acts such as Between The Buried and Me, Cannibal Corpse, The Faceless, Veil of Maya, Periphery, Job For A Cowboy, Dying Fetus, Beneath The Massacre, Ion Dissonance, Through The Eyes of the Dead, Carnifex, Overkill, Vader and more.

With the release of their highly anticipated full length "If Only Minds Could Paint Pictures" The Summoned truly believe this is their best work to date. Vocalist Steve Thompson proclaims "We wanted to truly create an album that is just unrelenting, an album that needs to be listened to from start to finish as opposed to song by song. We wanted to truly capture the feeling of our intense live shows and include it in "If Only Minds Could Paint Pictures" and we believe we've achieved that in this album."

With two east cost tours, an EP release, endorsements, opening for national acts, radio air play and a highly acclaimed full length under their belt The Summoned has proven that their hard work with song writing and live shows strike a nerve. Praised by their peers and highly acclaimed responses from fans, The Summoned have no intentions of slowing down and maintaining their status of fore-runners in the New England metal scene.
