Music For Speeding
The Story
Marty Friedman's "Music For Speeding" is sure to please the fans of his earlier more aggressive work (Cacophony, Megadeth) as well as attract new fans to his playing. There is some wicked guitar on the album, no question... Marty played, produced and even engineered his new solo album. Fans of Friedman's first solo album, "Dragon's Kiss" and his aggressive playing in Cacophony and Megadeth will freak out when they hear that style applied in Marty's new, more modern format. Tracks feature almost every 'Friedman-ism' he is known for, sylistically ranging from orchestral soundtrack style music to furious aggressive rock, with the common thread being Marty's unique and tasty sense of melody. Absolutely essential.
