Metal Forces reviews “The Power of Three” and rates it 9/10!

Metal Forces Magazine has posted on their website the review for Monte’s new album and rates it with 9 out of 10! Here’s an excerpt:

“The more I listen to The Power Of Three the more I want to listen to it. Monte Pittman has created an album overflowing with classic sounds, intensity, and thick walls of distortion. The sound is huge, and it’s hard to believe all this power comes from only three musicians. The Power Of Three is what metal is all about, and Monte Pittman is all about metal.”

Uber Rock mentions that “After you hear the opening track, ‘A Dark Horse’, you’ll be a fan regardless [...] There’s a whiff of newer age thrash ala ‘Death Magnetic’ and Pittman’s vocals are a clean, refreshingly ‘fresh’ style that aids the listener through some monstrous tracks”.
