Brandon Cook has been a name synonymous with excellent guitar playing for many years in Portland, Oregon. He studied at Portland State University with Jerry Hahn, obtaining a Bachelor of Music in Performance. After college, he studied with Marty Friedman(ex-Megadeth) and Al Pitrelli(ex-Megadeth, currently in Transsiberian Orchestra). The training received here took Brandon’s playing to a much higher level.
Brandon worked with Chris Caffery for a short time allowing him to share the stage with several amazing musicians including: Jeff Plate, Mark Wood, Alex Skolnick, Nick Douglas and Tim “The Ripper” Owens.
Since that time, Brandon returned to Portland and began focusing on teaching and projects like Appetite for Deception, one of the most authentic Guns n Roses tribute bands on the planet, State of Balance, his original metal band.

The Loyal Order – TBA (2018) composer, guitars,
