Marty Friedman‘s latest solo album, “Tokyo Jukebox 2”, was released in Japan last September via Avex. The CD picks up where Friedman‘s 2009 effort, “Tokyo Jukebox”, left off, with even more adventurous arrangements of his favorite Japanese songs. Recorded at The Village Recorder in Los Angeles, the album features Jason Bittner (SHADOWS FALL) on drums.

“Tokyo Jukebox 2” stretches the boundaries of guitar interpretation beyond anything Marty has released to date.

Marty Friedman‘s tenth solo album, “Bad D.N.A.”, was released in Japan on August 25, 2010 via Avex. The CD was produced by Marty and engineered by Steve Hardy and Shinnosuke Miyazawa (LADY GAGA, GUNS N’ ROSES) at The Village in Los Angeles, California.

Legendary Swedish metallers SILVER MOUNTAIN had their September 4, 2010 reunion show at Friluftsteatern in in Malmö, Sweden filmed for DVD release. The concert featured five different lineups and was captured using five cameras and a 24-track unit. This resulted in a 117-minute-long DVD, “A Reunion Live”, which can now be ordered at this location.

Formed in 1978, SILVER MOUNTAIN was initially an instrumental group based around the duo of bassist Pär Stadin and vocalist/guitarist Jonas Hansson. Among the band’s earliest members were keyboard player Jens Johansson and his drummer brother Anders Johansson, both of whom would later join Yngwie Malmsteen.
