Few guitar virtuosi are as respected and revered as Marty Friedman. After first rising to prominence alongside fellow six-string whiz Jason Becker in the influential band Cacophony and via his well-received solo debut "Dragon's Kiss," Friedman joined Megadeth, with whom he soon wrote and recorded the thrash landmark "Rust In Peace." His 10-year tenure with the iconic group -- during which they sold more than 10 million albums worldwide and earned multiple Grammy nominations -- saw the band's dream lineup reach its greatest heights.

In 2012, a U.S.- based independent label that introduced the world to Lamb of God, Animals As Leaders and All That Remains, among others -- approached Friedman about giving proper American releases to four of his Japanese studio albums. Those conversations led to discussions about making a new record. "Inferno" is Friedman's first album of original material in four years and his first in more than a decade to be released worldwide simultaneously. Recorded in Los Angeles with engineer Chris Rakestraw (Children of Bodom, Danzig) and mixed by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth), the album features what Friedman told Guitar World is "the most intense writing and playing I can do," with the goal of "go(ing) completely ape-shit, in the most 'Marty' way possible."
