There can never be a guitarist as good and diverse than MARTY FRIEDMAN, period! This new song is just another testament to this long standing fact. I am just spellbound, and awestruck!
MARTY FRIEDMAN is going out all guns blazing on his new upcoming record, ‘Wall Of Sound‘, to be released on August 4, 2017 via Prosthetic Records. The ones following Marty closely already know that he has not wasted a pinch of time in releasing two mind numbing tracks already from the upcoming album, and if you haven’t checked those out already you are seriously missing out something major happening. ‘Self Pollution‘ and ‘Whiteworm‘ are the two already out for you to take dibs and bask in the glory and awe of Marty‘s soulful and technical fretboard work. Today, Marty follows up with another soaring new track, “Miracle“, posted alongside an interview with Billboard Magazine.
The former MEGADETH guitarist Marty tells Billboard that “Miracle” is a heartfelt song, and that, “it’s supposed to make you feel really good after a big accomplishment, like you ran a marathon, a promotion or you fell in love with somebody.”
The guitar virtuoso who now lives in Japan and takes part in their culture will see him dish forth 11 brand new tracks in the record, that also features a wide range of diverse artists as guests : Jinxx (BLACK VEIL BRIDES), Shiv Mehra (DEAFHEAVEN) and Jorgen Munkeby (SHINING). MARTY FRIEDMAN has time and again pushed the envelope when it comes to instrumental music, especially his guitar playing abilities, and I am sure ‘Wall Of Sound‘ will breathe the same music of epic proportions, creating the best what he is always known for.
‘Wall Of Sound‘ expands and destroys any conventional notions of instrumental music. The album was produced by Friedman, engineered by Paul Fig (Ghost, Rush, Alice in Chains) and mixed by Jens Bogren (Lamb of God, Opeth). Pre-orders can be found here.
MARTY FRIEDMAN will begin a headlining run on August 2 in Philadelphia, PA. Support comes from Houston’s top progressive outfit, SCALE THE SUMMIT, along with Madison, WI’s incendiary power trio, THE FINE CONSTANT. Click here for tour dates and tickets!
