YNGWIE MALMSTEEN's 'World On Fire' Out June 1st
Legendary Swedish guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen will release his new studio album, "World On Fire", on June 1 via King Records.
He told blogger Seymour Duncan about the CD when asked what the new record sounds like "It's a Malmsteen record. [Laughs] But I would say it's a little different. First of all, I do all the lead vocals on it. Any time I did lead vocals in the past, I was singing blues stuff. This time I decided to do lead vocals in my style of songwriting, so it's different in that way. It's a very hard-hitting album and some parts are very advanced, very complicated. But it's a broad record. It's definitely a must-listen-to!"
Yngwie also confirmed that he laid down the bass tracks on his new album. "I play all the bass and most of the keyboards," he said. "And there's a string section and a choir. It's very neoclassical. It's super neoclassical!"
