YNGWIE MALMSTEEN Commences Work On "Attack"



International guitar legend YNGWIE MALMSTEEN is back in the studio and has begun recording his new album, Attack. Attack is being produced by YNGWIE himself, and recorded and mixed by the famous veteran engineer/producer Tom Fletcher. Attack is being recorded in Miami and will be ready for a late summer release.

Attack is the follow up to YNGWIE's successful masterpiece Concerto Suite Live, with the Japan Philharmonic Orchestra, which entered the Japanese International Billboard Charts at #4 in its first few weeks of release in January 2002 amongst MARIAH CAREY and the BACKSTREET BOYS.

YNGWIE MALMSTEEN has taken part in some high profile events this year. He has become a voting member of NARAS (National Academy of Recording, Arts and Sciences), the body of peers that vote on the Grammies.

On May 17, 2002, YNGWIE will play live and open for the best mixed martial arts fighting nationwide competition King Of The Cage 13 at the Silver Legacy Resort and Casino in Reno, Nevada, which will be hosted and commentated by WWF superstar and Ultimate Fighting Champion, Ken Shamrock, featuring KOTC heavy champion Dan Bobish and bantam weight champion Javier Vasquez (www.kingofthecage.com)

The event will be watched by hundreds of thousands of people on pay-per-view in North America. With the popularity of King Of The Cage having reached overseas in recent years, pay-per-view has been readily available in seven international broadcast markets. This list includes Globesat in Brazil, Multivision Sports in France, Sky Network TV in New Zealand, and JCS Sports in Israel.

YNGWIE will also play live and host the Search for Local Talent for BillboardLive and The New Times on April 25, 2002, in Miami, Florida (www.billboardlive.com).
