Announcing the Marty Friedman Guitar Solo Contest!


Marty Friedman Infero Guitar Solo Contest

UPDATE: Now with updated prizing from Boss! Below.

Marty Friedman’s new album Inferno comes out TODAY! Not only does it feature one of the world’s greatest shredders in top form, but he’s doing so alongside contemporaries such as Revocation’s Dave Davidson, Shining’s Jørgen Munkeby, Children of Bodom’s Alexi Laiho and more. Stream the album in full right here, and order it here

To celebrate, MetalSucks has teamed up with Prosthetic Records and Roland/Boss to host a very special contest: record your own guitar solos on top of the album’s title track “Inferno” and win a Marty Friedman prize pack! Marty himself will be listening to all the entries and choosing his favorites.

“Inferno” with guitar solos (album version):

“Inferno” without guitar solos (download this version!) 


Download the solo-free version of the track “Inferno.” Add your own solos in the sections left open (the intro, 1:49 through 2:22, and 3:29 through the end of the song) and upload your version of the full track to the Marty Friedman/ MetalSucks Guitar Solo Contest group on Soundcloud. You have until 11:59pm EDT on June 24th to enter, after which Marty will sift through the entries himself and MetalSucks will announce the winners shortly thereafter. The contest is open to fans worldwide, NOT just U.S. residents.

Entries won’t be judged on the production quality of your recording, so use any audio program you’d like.
