Video For MARTY FRIEDMAN’s “Hyper Doom” Now AvailableTuesday, 8th July 2014
“Hyper Doom”, the new video from former MEGADETH guitarist Marty Friedman, can be seen below. The song is taken from Marty’s new solo album, Inferno, which sold around 2,100 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 186 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released on May 26 via Prosthetic Records (except in Japan, where the album was made available through Universal Music).
Inferno was recorded primarily in Los Angeles with engineer Chris Rakestraw (DANZIG, CHILDREN OF BODOM) and mixed by Jens Bogren (OPETH, AMON AMARTH) — features what Friedman recently told Guitar World is “the most intense writing and playing I can do.” The album also includes notable guest appearances by several artists influenced by Friedman, including CHILDREN OF BODOM frontman Alexi Laiho, SKYHARBOR mastermind Keshav Dhar and David Davidson, as well as Friedman’s first songwriting collaboration with Jason Becker since the pair played together in CACOPHONY, the pioneering duo of guitar mayhem.
In addition, Inferno breaks all genre rules and creates new ones with an exhilarating and musically daring mash-up with Jørgen Munkeby of the acclaimed “blackjazz” act SHINING, as well as two tracks featuring vocals by rock guru Danko Jones. Overall, Inferno is by far Friedman’s most thrilling and adventurous effort to date.
