MARTY FRIEDMAN previews collaboration with Rodrigo y Gabriela


With the release of his highly anticipated solo album “Inferno” only days away, guitar legend MARTY FRIEDMAN has posted a sneak preview of “Wicked Panacea,” a new song featuring the acclaimed acoustic flamenco/metal guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela! Listen for yourself along with commentary from FRIEDMAN at Blabbermouth or in the below video.

“Inferno” will be released in North America via Prosthetic Records next Tuesday, May 27. “Packed with trenchant, off-kilter melodic thrash riffs and virtuosic solos” (Revolver), the album is FRIEDMAN‘s most thrilling and adventurous solo effort to date. In addition to “Wicked Panacea,” “Inferno” also features notable guest collaborations with Alexi Laiho (Children of Bodom), David Davidson (Revocation), Danko Jones and even a song-writing collaboration with former Cacophony bandmate Jason Becker.

Physical pre-orders of “Inferno” on either CD or black variant LP are shipping now via the Prosthetic webshop. Digital pre-orders, which include two instant track downloads (“Inferno” and “Steroidhead”), are also available via iTunes or Amazon MP3.
