Live Photo of Greg Burgess by Rusty Holloway Photography

With his progressive style, technical proficiency, and eclectic compositions, Greg Burgess has been pushing the boundaries of melodic technical death metal for nearly two decades. 


Best known as the guitarist and songwriter of Allegaeon, Greg draws inspiration from a wide range of genres, including classical, jazz, flamenco, and more. Greg applies his extensive formal training and professional experience, to seamlessly blend these influences into his unique sound.


When Greg isn’t touring, he’s teaching—helping fellow musicians and guitarists master skills and techniques, and strengthen their knowledge and understanding of music theory. 


Greg has a Bachelor of Music in classical guitar performance from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, and is certified in the Suzuki method.
