MARTY FRIEDMAN kicks off the week with the premiere of "Sociopaths," a brand new track from his highly anticipated new solo album "Inferno"! A lyric video for the track -- which features David Davidson (Revocation) on vocals, bass and rhythm guitar -- can be seen below:
“Inferno” -- scheduled for release on May 27 in North America via Prosthetic Records -- features what FRIEDMAN claims as “the most intense writing and playing I can do” and is his first recording in over a decade to be released simultaneously worldwide. Featuring several notable guest appearances (Jason Becker, Danko Jones, Alexi Laiho, Rodrigo y Gabriela), the album was mainly recorded in Los Angeles with engineer Chris Rakestraw (Danzig, Children of Bodom) and mixed by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth). FRIEDMAN talks about the recording process with all of the guests as well as how he reunited with former Cacophony bandmate Jason Becker in his featured interview on Music Radar HERE.
