Villainizer is the brainchild of ROB THE ARAB VILLAIN, started in the summer of 2009 with simple midi recordings on a myspace page as a way for RAV to market his personal musical exploits.
In the summer of 2010, RAV met with SAM THE JEWISH VILLAIN (Sam Levitt, TROLLBAND) to record THE VILLAINIZING EP. The EP was recorded in 8 hours in Rav's bedroom, and was recorded/mixed/mastered by Sam. Lending his guitar virtuoso-like talents to the album, and exploiting his flair for shred, JOHN THE SADDLEBAG VILLAIN (John Saturley, THE ORDER OF CHAOS, EX-SKEPSIS) played some of the solos on THE VILLAINIZING EP
2011, RAV met with Sam Levitt again to record the I Bomb New York album, an album revolving around the many racial stereotypes that the arab nations and people are confronted by. RAV wrote and performed all the songs on both the "Terrorist Metal" single and "I Bomb New York", with local musicians lending their talents (Drew The Druciferian Villain Copland, Tylor The Titanic Villain Dory, and Amanda The Wenchy Villain Kiernan). Terrorist Metal was released on 9/11 2011, the 10 year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, in the form of a free promo disc, limited to 500 copies. It also features a bonus track, 'Terrorist', a parody of Carnivore's self titled track 'Carnivore'. The I Bomb New York album was released Fall 2011, and included the 5 tracks from the Villainizing EP in their original state, as well as a parody of the intro to Raining Blood entitled "Post-Bombem (A Song For Osama)". I Bomb New York was met with critical acclaim, being quoted as "a tongue-in-cheek jihad" and "The most offensive album of 2011". The album featured 11 songs, each pertaining to a racial stereotype of arabs and used satire to play on those stereotypes. Rob "The Arab Villain" said "I like to take the sadistic side of a stereotype, not the sympathetic side, and play off of it"
