FORG­ING METAL

EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE FAVOURITES -

Hav­ing honed his orig­i­nal gui­tar style in renowned San Fran­cisco band Ca­cophony, Marty Fried­man joined metal heavy­weights Me­gadeth in 1990, record­ing five al­bums in­clud­ing the Gram­mynom­i­nated Rust In Peace. After fall­ing in love with Ja­panese mu­sic dur­ing Me­gadeth’s many world tours, he quit the band in 2000 and re­lo­cated to Tokyo – where he be­came a su­per­star all over again, play­ing and writ­ing mu­sic for ma­jor Ja­panese artists and mak­ing hun­dreds of TV ap­pear­ances. His new solo al­bum, In­ferno, is out now.
