The Roots

I was born in 23 November 1980 in Tehran - Iran. my first encounter with music was in 1993 and it was with Iranian traditional music but after 5 years of practicing and working on traditional music I have found out that it is not my thing and I have decided to leave it alone. in March 1998 I have started to play electric guitar under the supervision of one of the senior guitar players in Iran, "Farhad Majzoub" in styles of Rock, Blues and Heavy Metal. Since then I have tried to play and practice as much as I can.

The Developement

Through these years I've got my Bachelor Degree in Computer Engineering and along this profession rock music and playing guitar was/is/will be the main part of my life, and as each day passed my musical taste and playing changed so much, like many other young players in Iran my first influences were bands like Metallica, Pink Floyd, Iron Maiden etc. Today I'm into more diverse artists / bands and my music tastes can vary from Blues and Fusion to Progressive Metal. in 1999 me and my close friend, Mohammad Tasooji started a Thrash Metal band that we later decided to call it "Explode". Explode is a quartet and it's focus was on Thrash Metal music with persian lyrics at first and we've done our debut demo album entitled "Temptation" with that vibe in 2005. Later on 2010 we've recorded our second record entitled "Labyrinth of Solitude" with more focus on progressive music elements and English vocal lines.


The Future

in 2011 Me, and my old friends Hadi Kiani and Mohammad Nik started a new progressive metal project entitled "The Frame", So far we recorded our debut single track, "A Key to Heaven", Also did couple of Split Screen cover songs from bands like Iron Maiden and Symphony X and in the meanwhile we are working on our debut album. in 2015 I played as a session player for one of the biggest pop/rock icons of my country Iran, "Reza Yazdani" on some of the songs from his upcoming album which will be out shortly. And last but not least, teaching music and playing electric guitar is one of the biggest joys of my life. As a musician / Teacher I'm always trying to explore more new things and try to find more challenges through music and transfer the beauty of progressing to my students. For me, progressing in every aspect of music is the very true essence of this journey that we call life.

Explode was also a big part of my life from 2000 to 2010. We did one demo tape in 2005 called “Temptation” and one studio record in 2010 called “Labyrinth of Solitude” with Explode. These projects are more in the vein of thrash metal but with some twists and turns. We tried using persian lyrics on the first one and adding more acoustic guitars, more progressive oriented riffs and song structures on the second one. You can listen to these songs below:
