Yngwie Malmsteen's most recent record, Blue Lightning, saw him tackle a host of classic- and blues-rock covers, among them Jimi Hendrix's Foxey Lady and Purple Haze, ZZ Top's Blue Jean Blues, the Beatles’ While My Guitar Gently Weeps. But now the Swedish electric guitar shredder has announced a more “extreme” follow up.

The new record, Malmsteen revealed on SiriusXM's Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk, is titled Parabellum and will be released in July.
