its spinoff, “Rock Fujiyama,” which ran for six seasons, propelled him into the living rooms of Japan`s mainstream. This led to appearances on over 700 TV shows of every category, parts in major Japanese motion pictures, several TV commercials, including a two-year Coca-Cola campaign for Fanta. His popularity with the Japanese public led him to write two best-selling books in Japanese. In 2018, Young Guitar Magazine honored him with a 175-page special edition devoted only to FRIEDMAN and his inimitable playing style. Despite MARTY FRIEDMAN`s flourishing television career, he still considers his music his “only real job,” often performing at the Tokyo Dome, Budokan, the Super Arena and other top venues with his own music, as well as guesting with other artists. Along with releasing his ever evolving solo albums, he also writes and performs with the top artists in Japanese music, racking up countless chart hits including a #1 with Smap, two #2 songs with Momoiro Clover, a #2 with Sound Horizon, and a long list of others in and around the Top 10 in Japan. His latest Japan-only release, B: THE BEGINNING-THE IMAGE ALBUM, hit #1 on the overall Japan iTunes chart in fall of 2017. In 2017, the Japanese Government appointed MARTY FRIEDMAN as an Ambassador of Japan Heritage, for a term of three years through the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Along with J-pop icon Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, baseball legend Hideki Matsui and four others, he’s the first foreigner ever to receive this title. He performed the Opening Ceremony at the Tokyo Marathon in both 2017 and 2018, again the first foreigner to do so. His most recent collaboration with the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra is the government sponsored Japan Heritage Theme Song. Now with the release of ONE BAD M.F. Live!!, the combination of his other worldly experiences culminate into an avalanche of emotion, in his immediately recognizable style. “I like to lose myself in giving as much energy to the audience every night. I want everyone to go home feeling like they were injected with a shot of positive vibes.”MARTY FRIEDMAN continues, “I think we captured that on the record.”
The year of 2015 has brought Immortal Guardian to stages across the US featuring highlight performances at the ESPN X Games in Austin, Texas, and NAMM Metal Jam in Los Angeles, California, in addition to new eyes across the internet through their new music video for “Walk Alone.” They recently supported the well known Brazilian metal act ALMAH, featuring former ANGRA singer Edu Falaschi, on a Texas Tour following their first US appearance at Prog Power USA. Immortal Guardian and their eternal quest to “spread the shred” led the band to South America in 2013 for their first headlining Brazilian Tour and the band is excited to announce that they are currently preparing for a return within the coming months!
Over the years Immortal Guardian has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in metal such as Judas Priest, Metallica, Dragonforce, Kamelot, Symphony X, Sonata Arctica, Slayer, Metal Church, Soilwork, Steve Vai, Michael Angelo Batio and others. The band has also made a name for themselves as a DIY guerilla marketing machine via their Immortal Guardian Shred Sled, a mobile metal show on wheels, which has been covered by SPIN.com and other media outlets while out at major events and music festivals such as the ESPN X Games, South By Southwest, Fun Fun Fun Fest, and River City Rockfest. Immortal Guardian is currently in the pre-production phase of their first full-length record titled “Revolution Part II” which is set for an early 2016 release that will feature several cameo appearances including a guest guitar solo from shred legend Michael Angelo Batio.
