MONTE PITTMAN Releases Video For “Before The Mourning Star”

Tuesday, 14th January 2014

Monte Pittman, the guitarist known for his work with metal legends PRONG and Madonna, has posted the video for “Before the Mourning Star,” a song from his debut album, The Power of Three.

The album is set for a January 21 release through Metal Blade Records. Pittman, along with band members Kane Ritchotte on drums and Max Whipple on bass, went to Copenhagen, Denmark last year to record the album with producer Flemming Rasmussen, famous for his work with METALLICA.

The Vince Edwards-directed video for the song “Before The Mourning Son”Cam Rackam created the artwork for the cover of The Power Of Three. The piece features a portrait of Charon, the ferryman of Hades who carries souls of the newly deceased across the rivers Styx and Acheron that divided the world of the living from the world of the dead. This represents Monte’s musical journey from what he has done before and where he is now with “The Power Of Three” and beyond.

“A Dark Horse” is also available now as an iTunes single and features artwork created by Gustav Klimt (used with kind permission) titled “The Golden Knight (Life Is A Struggle)”. It is a textured, symbolic painting which tells a similar story as the music does.
