Marty Friedman Posts New Track "Meat Hook" Featuring Guest Saxophonist Jørgen Munkeby

In celebration of the kickoff of his world tour, guitar legend Marty Friedman has released a third track from his new solo release "Inferno." Take a listen to "Meat Hook" below, which is a tantalizing collaboration with "blackjazz" rebel Jørgen Munkeby (Shining) on vocals and saxophone.

Scheduled for release on May 27 in North America, "Inferno" marks the first original material from Friedman in over a decade, and features what he describes as his most intense writing and playing yet.

The album was recorded mostly in Los Angeles with Chris Rakestraw (Danzig, Children of Bodom) and mixed by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth). A previously posted music video for the title track is available at this location.

On a serious note, saxophones should just go away. What a horrid abomination of an instrument. I am glad that their forays into metal are few and far between. Haha.
