In the late 1990s, then-Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman shredded along onstage to metal classics like “Symphony of Destruction,” but offstage he was immersing himself in a growing love for melodic J-pop music. He left Megadeth in 2000, moved to Japan and found a new career as a Japanese media celebrity while releasing solo albums that melded his metallic guitar histrionics with influences from his new home. Friedman has begun reintroducing himself to American metal audiences, most recently with his just-released solo album, Wall of Sound, which combines guest appearances from members of modern acts such as Deafheaven with instrumental pop balladry and ambitious orchestration — most notably on “Sorrow and Madness,” featuring compelling violin instrumentation from Jinxx of Black Veil Brides.
