MEGADETH guitarist Kiko Loureiro has unleashed “Imminent Threat”, the second single off his fifth solo album, “Open Source”. The track features a guest appearance by former MEGADETH guitarist Marty Friedman.
The cover artwork for “Imminent Threat” and “Open Source” was created by Gustavo Sazes (MACHINE HEAD, AMARANTHE, ARCH ENEMY) and can be seen above.
Kiko said: “For the last five years, I’ve always been compared to Marty Friedman, and Marty Friedman is a great musician — not only a great guitar player but an amazing musician. And I’m a big fan of his solo work and CACOPHONY and, of course, other MEGADETH years, and I had a chance to meet him two times and have great conversations about music and about life with him.
“I have some guest musicians, guest guitarists on my new album, and guess what? Marty Friedman is one of them.
“I’m so happy to have Marty Friedman. He did, of course, an amazing solo on one of my songs. So, thank you, Marty.”
