NADER NOROOZIAN - Guitar Back To Top
pics coming soon...

Joined the band: November 2013

Guitarist
My musical interests started in the mid-90's by playing keyboards. I began listening to rock & metal music in high school and became interested in guitars. I started playing electric guitar in 2002. I am a self-taught guitarist. After a couple of years I noticed the lack of musical science & music theory in myself, so I began to learn music theory professionally from one of the most prominent jazz fusion players in Iran. Since then I worked as the lead guitarist in two metal bands & also worked on my solo album. I have participated in several guitar competitions. I began teaching guitar & music theory in 2008.

Songwriting
The songs I compose are full of technical & melodic riffs. I write the riffs in my mind first & then bring them on the guitar. I have experienced numerous good & bad feelings throughout my life & I want to use my songs to show how I feel.

Solos
Solos wise whatever comes to my head as I am listening to the rhythm with just one rule in the back of my mind; apply music theory in order to make everything complicated & strange so that no one can predict what will happen next!

Gear
Ibanez Prestige RG 1820 with V series & Piezzo pickups
Line 6 Pod XT Live unit

Favourite Bands: Arch Enemy, Amon Amarth, Children of Bodom, Metallica, Dream Theatre, Slayer, Dimmu Borgir, Pantera, Damage Plan, Iron Maiden, Slipknot, Rammstein, Black Label Society, Death, Queen, Pink Floyd, Rush.

Influential Musicians: Jimi Hendrix, Joe Satriani, Michael Angelo Batio, Yngwie Malmsteen, Jeff Loomis, Rusty Cooley, Steve Vai, Slash, Eddie Van Halen, BB King, Eric Clapton, Eric Johnson, Jeff Beck.

Other Interests: Fitness, teaching guitar & music theory, going to live gigs.
