Trey Azagthoth (born George Emmanuel III March 26 1965) is an Americanmarker composer and guitarist best known as founder and guitarist of the Floridamarker death metal band Morbid Angel.

Azagthoth began playing at the age of 16. His playing features much utilization of the whammy bar, complex finger tapping, extensive use of a Morley Wah-wah pedal and other effects, and wailing guitar solos that have a distinct tone fans consider to be his trade-mark sound. He also does synth work for Morbid Angel. He cites Mozart and Eddie Van Halen as a huge influence and inspiration on his music. His state of mind when he solos is what he refers to as the "Temple of Ostx". A collection of some of his famous guitar solos from Morbid Angel's sixth album "Formulas Fatal to the Flesh" were put on a B-side record entitled "Love of Lava" which later were included on the second disc of Morbid Angel's 8th album, "Heretic".

Trey uses Ibanez and Jackson guitars, and at one point B.C. Rich, but has stated on his personal myspace page that he has worked out a deal with Dean Guitars to make, as he calls it, a personalized "X-Core" V. He is most famous for using B.C. Rich Ironbird guitars and lately, Jackson Warrior guitars. He was recently included in Guitar World's 50 fastest guitarists issue.

These are run straight to his guitars, which have included the following companies: Jackson (Warrior), Ibanez (Universe), B.C.
