Marty Friedman, the second best guitarist Megadeth ever had, will release his new album Wall Of Sound on August 4 via Prosthetic Records.
You'd assume the whole album would be incredibly-written shred music, and for the most part you'd be right. Though the new song "Miracle" is a little less in the way of guitar-related destruction, and more in the vein of "victorious jam that may or may not make you shed a tear." At least, that's how Marty wants you to feel in an interview with Billboard.
“It’s so close to [Friedman’s] heart that, despite laboring with multiple collaborators to create spoken-word narration for it, he couldn’t come up with anything satisfying — but maybe one of his fans can.
“‘I’m secretly hoping that after the song is released, someone takes the liberty to do that on their own and blows my mind,’ he says. He has ‘a Harry Chapin kind of thing, like ‘Cat’s in the Cradle’; like family, really personal, tear-jerking things’ in mind. Friedman is happy to review fans’ inspirations uploaded to YouTube and is willing to retweak the track post-release if he finds a match."
