Real/full name:
George Michel Emmanuel III
52 (born Mar 26th, 1965)
Place of origin:
United States (Bellingham, Washington)


The founding member and guitarist of Morbid Angel, Trey Azagthoth is recognised as one of the pioneers of the fast, distorted tone of guitar that became synonymous with death metal.


His non-musical interests include anime, video games, firearms, martial arts, the occult, nature, and spirituality. His favorite shows are Sailor Moon and Gundam. His stage name refers to the name component "III" (the third) and Azagthoth to the Ancient One of the grimoire Necronomicon by Simon. Decibel Magazine ranked him number one on their list of 20 best death metal guitarists.
