Marty Friedman Releases Inferno Video
The "Inferno" album is scheduled to be released in North America on May 27th. For the title track's video, Friedman co-directed the clip with David Brodsky (Devin Townsend, The Black Dahlia Murder).
Friedman explained the inspiration behind the video, "The music video for 'Inferno' is an homage/parody of one of my fave Japanese TV shows, 'Zenryokusaka' ('Full Power Hill').
"It's a weekly five-minute show where the entire premise is absolutely nothing but a girl running up a hill. Each week a different girl, and a different hill. I am hooked on this show, and think it is genius in its simplicity and ever-so-slight sexual nature.
"It took me a while to explain the charm of the show to the video director, but I think towards the end of making our video together, he got it. It's like many things that happen outside the culture you were born in; you either get it and it's fresh or you don't and it's just weird." Watch the video here.
