MARTY FRIEDMAN tells AP“This song is a good barometer for the record. I’m hugely into big contrasts, and there’s nothing subtle in what we’ve done with “Sorrow And Madness”. It expands both of us-it’s something that people won’t expect, and it made us both grow so much. I’m so proud of what we’ve done on this song.”
Jinxx adds: “Let’s just say that Marty took a little violin melody I wrote and moved it to another level… to outer space! One day I sent him my idea, and three days later he replied with his take on it, and it blew my mind! If you’ve ever seen the movie Amadeus, it was like when Mozart sits down at the piano and plays Salieri’s little ditty! It was amazing to listen to!”

Once again, MARTY FRIEDMAN assembled an incredible and diverse group of musicians to record and guest on Wall Of Sound. His core recording band is made up of Anup Sastry, a modern whiz kid sharing drum duties with uber-veteran Gregg Bissonette, and Japanese musician Kiyoshi – who is undisputedly one of the most aggressive bassists on earth. Guests include Jinxx of Black Veil Brides and Shiv Mehra of Deafheaven, and Jorgen Munkeby of Shining lends his voice to the only non-instrumental track on the album.
