Marvel Releases Monster Magnet Cover “Powertrip”

It’s the first Friday in the month, it means a new Guilty Pleasure by Märvel. This time the band has Märvelized Monster Magnets classic hit “Power Trip.” The Swedish power-trio have filled the track with energy and kept original songs groove. Power Trip is perhaps best known for being a monster hit of the ’90s. Märvel, however, shows that the song is more than just a ’90s throwback, its a great piece of Rock N Roll.

The first Friday each month Märvel is releasing a new track from their upcoming album “Guilty Pleasure.” The song is preceded by a music quiz about the upcoming song on the band’s facebook page. The first of February the band releases their version of Monster Magnets hit “Power Trip.” Earlier the band have released Guilty Pleasures as Dire Straits – “Sultans of Swing,” REO Speedwagon – “Keep Pushin”‘ and Rick Derringer – “Rock & Roll, Hoochie Koo.” The album “Guilty Pleasure” is out 12th of April on The Sign Records.

Metal Blade Records CEO Brian Slagel and Monte Pittman to guest on tomorrow’s Howard Stern Wrap Up Show

– September 28th, 2016 –

Metal Blade Records CEO Brian Slagel will appear alongside guitarist Monte Pittman on this Thursday’s edition of “The Howard Stern Wrap Up Show”. They will discuss this week’s happening’s on The Howard Stern Show and Monte‘s new album Inverted Grasp of Balance, which was released this past Friday via Metal Blade Records. The show airs at 11:00 AM EST on Howard 101 on SiriusXM and repeats throughout the day.

Inverted Grasp Of Balance can be previewed and purchased in various formats now at: metalblade.com/montepittman

To assert that Pittman has had a storied career is something of an understatement. His resume includes an ongoing and fruitful collaboration with multi-platinum selling artist Madonna, having recorded and toured with her extensively over a period of more than fifteen years. Then there’s his first band, Myra Mains, his stint in the metallic behemoth that is Prong, and collaborations with a broad spectrum of international artists. If his time with Prong did not fully communicate just how much metal flowed through his veins, with 2014′s Flemming Rasmussen-produced The Power Of Three – his first release with Metal Blade Records – he compellingly blended killer riffs, blistering leads and gigantic hooks to deliver an album that was equal parts anthemic grandeur and in-your-face attitude, making metalheads around the world sit up and take note.

Now, for his latest offering, Inverted Grasp Of Balance, Pittman teamed up with powerhouse drummer Richard Christy of Charred Walls Of The Damned/Iced Earth/Death fame and virtuoso bassist Billy Sheehan, famous for his work with a plethora of talented artists – including David Lee Roth, Mr. Big and, more recently, Winery Dogs – the skill of all concerned explodes from the speakers. With such passionate professionals and Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Steel Panther) handling production duties, the record came together quickly and smoothly. This really is the proverbial “whole package”: an album that has been lovingly crafted in all aspects, that Pittman hopes reaches as many ears as possible. “I had a true vision for this record from the start, and I couldn’t imagine a better team to help me realize it,” Pittman comments. “We’re going to make some real noise with ‘Inverted Grasp Of Balance‘ – so get ready!”

Inverted Grasp Of Balance track-listing:
1. Panic Attack
2. Arisen in Broad Daylight
3. Guilty Pleasure
4. The Times Are Changing
5. Double Edged Sword
6. Cadabra
7. Pride Comes Before the Fall

Monte Pittman streams new track, “Be Very Afraid”, online

– September 13th, 2016 –

With his fourth full-length, Inverted Grasp Of Balance, he has once again raised the stakes, delivering a riveting collection of full force metal that showcases his continuing evolution, undoubtedly expanding his devout – and ravenous – fan base. For a preview of Inverted Grasp Of Balance (due out September 23rd worldwide), head over to: metalblade.com/montepittman – where the new single, “Be Very Afraid”, can be streamed.

Pittman comments: “‘Be Very Afraid’ is the second single on ‘Inverted Grasp Of Balance‘. It’s up-tempo and takes you on a roller coaster of dynamics. I love what my friend, Richard Christy, does on the drums after the guitar solo. I wrote it about when I lived in a house that was haunted. When friends would stay over, they would tell me they saw shadows that they felt like were staring at them. It’s also a take on the housing market crash a few years ago. I put it all together and came up with this song.”
