Former Megadeth Guitarist to Play With Orphaned Land Guitarist in Israel

Century Media

Metal knows no cultural boundaries. Former Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman, who played on the band’s landmark albums like ‘Rust in Peace’ and ‘Countdown to Extinction,’ has invited guitarist Yossi Sassi of Israeli metal band Orphaned Land to play alongside him when he performs at Reading 3 Club in Tel Aviv, Israel on May 31st.

Sassi is looking forward to performing with Friedman, who currently resides in Japan. “Although I have shared stages with Metallica, Iron Maiden and many others, I’m excited more than ever to cooperate with Marty on the same stage, shoulder to shoulder,” said Sassi. “His recordings with the legendary Jason Becker were one of the milestones for me as a guitarist, through his wonderful solos with Megadeth to his current impressive solo career. Since the beginning of our relationship, Marty seems to be as pleasant and professional as one can be during mutual preparations towards the show together. I believe we’ll produce nice work together, in the upcoming show and beyond.”

Orphaned Land, who are based in Israel, have given away copies of their latest album, ‘The Never Ending Way of Orwarrior’, to fans in Arabic countries as well as America in order to promote heavy metal unity and to foster cultural conversation through progressive music. If you live in these territories, you can download the album for free here.
