Matthew Montgomery, aka Count D., is most famously known as the bassist for Rob Zombie but also has a long history in the music business with a solo career as Piggy D. and as the guitarist in horror punk band Wednesday 13.
Matt first took over bass duties with Rob Zombie from current Ozzy Osbourne bassist Blasko, playing "American Witch" live on the Late Show with David Letterman right before picking up the second leg of the Educated Horses tour in late 2006. To this day, he maintains a successful solo career while playing with Zombie.
Matt's solo career as Piggy D. includes two albums; Evacuation Plan released in 2007 and Repeat Offender released in 2012 just before joining up with Rob Zombie.
In 2009, Piggy co-wrote and produced the first ever Alice Cooper Halloween song, "Keepin' Halloween Alive." The single was released digitally on iTunes, and a limited edition CD. A glow in the dark 7" record has also been released.
In 2011, Matt co-wrote with David Spreng, Bob Ezrin and Alice Cooper for the long waited sequel Welcome 2 My Nightmare. The track "Last Man On Earth" is featured on the album.
In 2016, Matt announced that he was collaborating with Ash Costello from New Years Day on a new project called The Haxans. The first single "Chains" was released on June 6, 2016.
Party Monster is the latest undertaking by Matt and friends; highlighting some of his creative work that has been developed in recent years including The Haxans and Lord High. In 2020, expect to see more music, video content, and even some games starring the Count himself!
