New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Gizz Butt has earned a unique place among rock's legendary guitarists for his groundbreaking fusion of hardcore punk and technically accomplished heavy metal guitar ferocity and his latest album with his band, Janus Stark, sees him at the peak of his powers.
From his first recognition internationally in the early 80's with the band English Dogs, recognized by heavy metal behemoths Metallica
as an early influence on their sound, through to his stellar work with Crass (Last Supper) and The Prodigy, Gizz's style has kept him at the forefront of British rock guitar innovators, earning plaudits from luminaries such as Dave Grohl and David
Their album 'Angel in the Flames' allows Gizz to really let loose on his guitar, combining melodic punk melodies and the furious punishment of his six-string in some of the most stunning performances of his career. Fresh
from a full UK tour alongside rock stalwarts, The Wildhearts, this is Gizz's most personal work yet.
Following a brief stint with Goth legends, Fields of the Nephilim, Butt's other ongoing projects include the German alt-metal band Pyogenesis but it's his most recent work with melodic punk band Janus Stark which has drawn praise from fellow rock luminaries Foo Fighters
and Die Toten Hosen. With a refreshed line-up, a mere twenty years after their first album, Janus Stark's new release is Angel
in Flames, the album Gizz has always wanted to make and the sound of a punk virtuoso guitarist at the height of his powers.
