Hello my name is Justin Hartzer. I have been influenced and inspired by Heavy Metal music since the very young age of 5 years old. First couple bands were names such as Fates Warning, Queensryche, Crimson Glory, Savatage, and Vicious Rumors. Some of my top influential guitarists to me are Tom Englund (Evergrey), Peter Wichers (Ex Soiilwork) Marty Friedman, Andy James, Jorn Viggo Lofstad (Pagan's Mind), Dean Wells (Teramaze), and Marco Sfogli. Before learning how to play guitar, the very first instrument I learned was piano. Family has pictures of me as a baby sitting at a piano with my fingers on the piano. After learning piano, I started learning how to play guitar at the age of 10. I have been trained in Jazz, Blues, Rock, and Heavy Metal. My favorite two genres being Heavy Metal and Jazz. At this time I am working on putting together material for a debut instrumental album and plan to release the album either late of 2016 or next year.
