The former Cacophony and Megadeth guitarist embarks on his first US tour in more than a decade in support of his 2014 effort “Inferno.”
Washington, D.C. and Richmond, Virginia-based progressive thrashers Midnight Eye open the show playing songs from their 2013 effort, “Nightmonger.”
Exmortus, the technical death/thrash quartet from Whittier, California and support band for Marty’s tour take the stage and play for the next 30 minutes, doing of some of their heavier music. Although no mosh pit formed, there was a lot of headbanging from the crowd.
Marty and his bandmates come out to rousing applause from the crowd. They launch into a set that includes a nod to Megadeth with the solo from “Tornado Of Souls” from Rust In Peace, the title track to Marty’s newest album Inferno, “Elixir” from Loudspeaker.
At one point in the set, he asks if anyone in the crowd would like to jam with the band; a lucky guy in the front row gets to play with Marty on stage. The evening ends with a song from “Tokyo Jukebox” and Marty thanks the crowd for making his return to the US a good one.
