Tornado Of Souls (5:29)

Cover of That One Night: Live in Buenos Aires

From That One Night: Live in Buenos Aires and 20 other releases

The seventh track from the influential “Rust in Peace” album, “Tornado of Souls” is a fan-favourite and is played at live shows regularly. Its guitar solo is considered to be one of lead guitarist Marty Friedman’s best guitar solos.

“‘Tornado of Souls’ is about me getting out of a dysfunctional relationship. It has nothing to do with killing anybody.” (Mustaine, 1993)

“When I finished the solo to this one, Mustaine came into the studio, listened to it down once, turned around and without saying a word, shook my hand. It was at that moment that I felt like I was truly the guitarist for this band.” (Friedman, 2002)

This morning I made the call, the one that ends it all
Hanging up, I wanted to cry, but dammit, this well's gone dry
Not for the money, not for the fame
Not for the power, just no more games
