Trey Azagthoth Now Identifies As A Brony

1483654_616743195033469_530345388_nMorbid Angel guitarist Trey Azagthoth has revealed himself as a brony, according to a recent interview in Revolver. When queried about his colorful new tattoos, the eccentric axeman replied, “I’ve been into Sailor Moon, Pokemon, and all kinds of anime for years, but this new My Little Pony series is the greatest thing ever. I’m totally a brony now, and proud of it!”

A brony is an adult male who has a visible preoccupation with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, an animated show intended for girls ages 3-8. Azagthoth has recently appeared on stage with visible tattoos themed around the show, along with related t-shirts, pendants, and stickers on his guitars. “I’m definitely a Rainbow Dash guy,” he enthused, “but Fluttershy is a close second. I plan to cover both my arms with the two of them, so I’m glad I got rid of that silly inverted cross tattoo when I did!”

Azagthoth went on to explain how he plans to color coordinate his guitars with his favorite ponies, and he intimated that fans shouldn’t be surprised if pony-related themes appear on the next Morbid Angel record. The most eyebrow-raising revelation, however, was his plan to change his famous stage name.

“From now on, I’ll be known as Trey Azagclop,” he said, “but don’t get the wrong idea. I don’t actually do that. I watch the show for the plot.”

“Clopping” is a slang term among the brony community, which refers to abusing one’s self to the pony characters on the show. As for the expected response from his fan base, the newly-dubbed Azagclop seemed unworried.

“I really don’t think this will be a problem,” he mused, “Morbid Angel fans have always been open-minded. The last four albums are about nothing but Tony Robbins and Castlevania, and everyone seemed to be fine with it. David [Vincent, frontman of the band] is in full support of my choice, and I’ve even gotten him to watch the show with me a few times. I think he’s got a thing for Pinkie Pie, if you ask me.”

Morbid Angel is currently on their 20th Anniversary Covenant tour across North America.

    Illud divinum was the final nail in the coffin for morbid angel, and even worse that nail was hammered in once pete decided to leave the band, he could have returned and brought the good old morbid angel back from the brink of destruction. R.I.P morbid angel. Trey azagthoth was the reason I picked up a guitar and played death metal once I picked it up. He still is my idol for guitar, but I focus on everything he did before illud divinum. This shits just flat out weird, my little pony ? cmon trey. Morbid angel will never ever be the same, atleast they left us with 7 albums before it ended like this. I like the old morbid angel A-H. Illud only had 1 fave song of mine “Nevermore” and even that wasn’t enough to save my fondness for the album. R.I.P Morbid Angel…what a sad day for death metal.
