Faraz Anwar biography
Faraz ANWAR is a progressive metal guitar player from Pakistan. He started playing the guitar at a young age, being inspired by Yngwie MALMSTEEN. Faraz studied in St. Paul & St. Andrews but left his studies for music. He was taught the basics of guitar playing by Adnan AFAQ and was also inspired by Allan HOLDSWORTH, Paul GILBERT, Steve MORSE and Steve VAI. During his career he has worked with famous Pakistani musicians and has been a part of bands such as POWER HOUSE, LIVE SKETCHES and COLLAGE (not to be confused with the Polish neo-prog band). Other projects include MIZRAAB (progressive metal), DUSK (black metal) and YASIR & FARAZ (eastern neo-classical music).

'Untitled' was recorded in 1995-96 but was only released through the internet in 2004 through MIZRAAB's fan site. He received the 'Outstanding Musical Achievement Award '96' from Berkley College of Music. The recognition came with his solo instrumental album 'Abstract Point Of View', for which he wrote all the music and sequencing, and it was released by Gnarly Geezer Records internationally in 2001. The label is owned by Allan HOLDSWORTH. 'Abstract Point Of View' was the second guitar-based instrumental album to be produced in Pakistan.
