MARTY FRIEDMAN Reveals Personal Music Video for "Miracle"
Pioneer of exotic guitar MARTY FRIEDMAN released his stunning, critically-acclaimed full-length opus, Wall Of Sound, this past summer via Prosthetic Records. The album can be ordered HERE.
Today, MARTY FRIEDMAN has revealed a second music video from Wall Of Sound, this time for the track "Miracle". The track tells the story of Marty's personal journey from an everyday kid to virtuoso, through a series of candid family home videos and photos from the Friedman family. Watch the video now, exclusively via Loudwire HERE.
"Once you`ve grown up in this complicated world, it`s easy to forget the simpler times that were so important in making you who you are now, as well as the people in your family who put up with all of the loud music, smoke and noise coming from your bedroom, and all the other BS that you put them through," says Friedman. "With this video, rather than looking at how much of a goofy kid I was, I hope that it inspires you to think about your own family or whoever was closest to you when you were just starting out in the world."
While online, check out another music video for the track "Whiteworm", which has racked up nearly 400k views.
Wall Of Sound expands and destroys any conventional notions of instrumental music. The album was produced by Friedman, engineered by Paul Fig (Ghost, Rush, Alice in Chains) and mixed by Jens Bogren (Lamb of God, Opeth). Once again, MARTY FRIEDMAN assembled an incredible and diverse group of musicians to record and guest on Wall Of Sound. His core recording band is made up of Anup Sastry, a modern whiz kid sharing drum duties with uber-veteran Gregg Bissonette, and Japanese musician Kiyoshi - who is undisputedly one of the most aggressive bassists on earth. Guests include Jinxx of Black Veil Brides and Shiv Mehra of Deafheaven, and Jorgen Munkeby of Shining lends his voice to the only non-instrumental track on the album.
