YNGWIE MALMSTEEN To Guest On Next Weekend's 'The Classic Metal Show'

Legendary Swedish guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen will be the featured guest on next Saturday's (October 25) edition of "The Classic Metal Show".

"The Classic Metal Show" can be heard every Saturday night between 9:00 p.m. EST and 3:00 a.m. EST at www.cmsradio.net.

The long-awaited new album from Yngwie Malmsteen, "Perpetual Flame", was released on October 14 on Malmsteen's own Rising Force Records.

Malmsteen rose to fame in the early 1980s as the phenomenally talented and flamboyantly theatrical sole progenitor of "neoclassic" metal. Live and on record, his classically inflected guitar chops dazzled all who heard him. His phenomenal playing proved highly influential and served as the foundation for an entire new metal sub-genre. Several of his many albums are considered metal classics, including "Rising Force" (1984), "Marching Out" (1985), "Fire and Ice" (1992) and "Unleash the Fury" (2005).
