Hot Streak has proven to be an apt title for The Winery Dogs’ new album.  Ever since its release on October 2nd, 2015, the album has been on its own hot streak.  It reached the top spot on Amazon’s Best Sellers/Hard Rock chart and its Pre-orders/Hard Rock chart.  In comparison to the band’s 2013 debut album Hot Streak sold 30% more copies than that record.  It topped out at the #2 spot on Billboard’s Top Current Alternative Albums Chart and #30 on the Top 200 Albums Chart.  That is just the top of the proverbial iceberg.  The numbers listed below are its other accolades from Billboard.

 

#5                     “Top Current Hard Music”

 

#5                     “Top Hard Music Albums”

 

#6                     “Top Current Rock Albums”

Friedman’s First Album In Over A Decade Coming In Early 2014

Veteran guitarist Marty Friedman (Megadeth, Cacophony) has announced that his latest full length solo record in early 2014.  No specific release date has been set as of yet.  However, it has been confirmed that Friedman is hoping to have his new album out by Spring.  It will be his first record comprised entirely of new material in four years.  It will also be his first full length record in over ten years.  According to Friedman himself, the album, titled Inferno, will be his heaviest record yet.  “I’m extremely proud of the work I’ve done with Cacophony and Megadeth, but I was never interested in stopping there,” he said.  “‘Inferno’ is the album that fans of my work with those two bands have always wanted me to make.  I’ve finally made it, and completely on my own maniacal terms.”  He added in an interview with Guitar World magazine that Inferno is “the most intense writing and playing I can do.”  He went on to say of it that “I wanted to create a new landmark to which my future music will be compared.  “That idea of just going completely balls-out — knowing what the full potential of my music and my playing could possibly be, and actually making it a reality — was what drove me through the whole process.”

Friedman’s fans will have plenty to look forward to on Inferno.  That is because the record will feature Friedman teaming up with a number of other well-known guitarists including Alexi Laiho (Children of Bodom), David Davidson (Revocation), and famed flamenco/metal acoustic duo Rodrigo y Gabriela.  Friedman’s former Cacophony band mate Jason Becker also played a role in the creation of Inferno as the pair collaborated on some songwriting.  Friedman said of his team-ups with the noted special guests, “On the guests’ songs, each would write a song from scratch, and then I would arrange it and add my parts to it.”  He added “That way, we were both invested in it, and it’s a little bit of a deeper experience than just banging out a guest solo.”

The official release date for Inferno has not yet been released.  While fans wait on that information, they can check out a trailer for the album now online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MO8dP0pPpjQ.  A tour in support of the new album is anticipated.  Fans can find out the latest tour dates as they are announced online at http://www.facebook.com/martyfriedman.official and http://www.martyfriedman.com.  To keep up with the latest sports and entertainment news and reviews, go online to http://www.facebook.com/philspicks and “Like” it.  Fans can always keep up with the latest sports and entertainment news and reviews in the Phil’s Picks blog at https://philspicks.wordpress.com.
