Marty Friedman – Wall Of Sound – Ltd Ed White Vinyl, 2017, Heavy Metal
Limited Edition White Vinyl LP pressing. Grammy nominated recording artist and legendary guitarist as well as Ambassador of Japan Heritage Marty Friedman (Megadeth) returns with Wall of Sound, the much anticipated follow up to his Billboard charting album, Inferno. Eleven bombastic tracks featuring a diverse group of guests: Jinxx (Black Veil Brides), Shiv Mehra (Deafheaven) and Jorgen Munkeby (Shining), Wall of Sound explores, expands and destroys any conventional notions of instrumental music. Engineered by Paul Fig (Ghost, Alice in Chains, Rush) and mixed by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Lamb of God). “It was as if the exhaustive process of putting Inferno together strengthened a new creative muscle that I had never zoned in on before, so the first steps of writing Wall of Sound felt like a runner who runs a marathon after over-training for a long time. I was well warmed up. The guitar playing on the album also came quite easy, despite it being without question the most evolved guitar playing of my career. It’s a challenge to evolve on ones instrument album after album, especially on your 13th solo album. Luckily this is a challenge that I love. “You will find this hard to believe when you hear the density and sheer amount of guitar coming at you from all directions, but in fact all of the final guitar tracks on Wall of Sound were done in 9 days.” – Marty Friedman
