Why, it was just back in September that we brought you an interview with Monte Pittman, guitarist extraordinaire.
Now the dude’s gone and landed a deal with Metal Blade Records.
Pittman is best known for his work with Prong and Madonna.
A release date for Pittman’s forthcoming new solo album — which he spoke with us about at length — will be announced shortly.
Metal Blade Records founder and CEO Brian Slagel comments: “We are so happy to welcome Monte Pittman to the Metal Blade Family. He is a tried and true metalhead and has recorded a crushing album! Metallica producer Flemming Rasmussen produced a devastating metal record with Monte and we could not be happier that we are working together on this!”
Dude…that’s a pretty glowing endorsement.
Pittman adds: “I’m beyond excited to be working with Brian Slagel and all of the wonderful team at Metal Blade. I can’t think of anyone I can put my faith and trust in more with my new album and where my career is headed. Metal Blade’s track record has stood the test of time. Brian has been responsible for a majority of bands that have influenced me and gotten me to where I am now.
“It’s been a dream come true making this album with Flemming Rasmussen. Flemming is a Master at recording a band playing together and capturing the sound in the room of everything musically working together. After we finished tracking, the first person I wanted to play it for was Brian Slagel. Here we go!”
