“You may not yet know Monte by name, but you’ll remember him well after giving The Power of Three a spin.” -FEARnet
“The holy grail of riffageâ€¦” -Rock Revolt Magazine
“Pittman combines old-school thrash, 1980’s hard rock, classic rock, and modern groove (with elements of Panteraâ€¦), and tops it off with a vocal delivery reminiscent of Ozzy. Just when you are ready to call this album one thing, it tells you otherwiseâ€¦” -Metal Observer
The Power of Three, the brand new album from award winning, chart topping guitarist, Monte Pittman is available today via Metal Blade Records. Pittman, along with band members Kane Ritchotte on drums and Max Whipple on bass, went to Copenhagen earlier this year to record the album with producer Flemming Rasmussen. Fans can pick up a copy of ‘The Power of Three’ from metalblade.com/montepittman and iTunes.
Monte Pittman’s video for the song ‘Before the Mourning Son’ was premiered last week. The clip was directed by Vince Edwards and showcases stellar performances from Monte and his bandmates drummer Kane Ritchotte and bassist Max Whipple. The video can be viewed HERE.
