Marty Friedman will be putting out his new Inferno record on May 27 via Prosthetic Records and both the singles we have heard off it have sufficiently shredded my face into face confetti.
So obviously, I was expecting more of that when I hit play on "Meta Hook," but was greeted with Shining's Jørgen Munkeby's sax playing and raspy, loud vocals instead alongside some really strange jazz-shred. The best part is that it works so well!
The initial shock of Munkeby just caught me off guard because the only guests I knew about for the record were Spanish guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela, Children of Bodom's Alexi Laiho and Revocation's David Davidson… who else will mysteriously show up? Could Necrophagist's Muhammed Suiçmez make an appearance as well (spoiler! Probably not)?
Pre-order Inferno on Amazon.com for $14.24.
