Marty Friedman (Ex-Megadeth) Premieres New Video For “Whiteworm”

Marty Friedman (ex-Megadeth) has premiered a new video for his new song “Whiteworm.” This track is from his new album “Wall Of Sound,“ which will be released on August 4.

Friedman said the following:

“The ‘Whiteworm‘ video has a definite ‘real world’ Japanese look, but not the over the top ‘exported Japanese look’ that many people are familiar with when they see Japan related content. It was directed by top class Japanese music video director Junya Masuyama, who has done hit videos with superstars of every genre of Japanese music.

I chose him to challenge him to put a foreigner (myself) into a very Japanese atmosphere in such a way that was not ‘Japan overload’. It was quite easy for him to do so, as his videos tend to be minimalistic, with the focus on one or two subtle themes. In this case the themes being the very delicate and simple idea of a little boy playing a video game waiting for the rain to stop, and me playing aggressively and calmly.

Japan can be known for its wildness, but it also corners the market on subtle things. I went the subtle route on this video to contrast with the wildness of the guitar work in ‘Whiteworm‘.”
