MARTY FRIEDMANDRAMA

Drama is the “definitive” news solo album from former Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman.

“…the closest thing I can relate [Drama] to is an album I had called Scenes… It was very dramatic and orchestral, and there was a lot of other type of instruments — violins, cellos and all that type of stuff. So it’s more of a dramatic, orchestral concept. But everything that I’ve learned since that Scenes album has just exponentially grown, so it’s a much bigger scale. So if you like that Scenes album at all, I think this one will be right up your alley.”
