Monte Pittman is more than just a cool dude and Madonna’s axe man. He is a well regarded metal virtuoso who has killer chops but focuses just as much on anthemic songwriting. Today we get a new groovy pit smasher from the ex-Prong riff machine. The slinky solo that then evolves over a dissonant doomy riff before full shreddage entails is very cool.

Pittman comments: “‘Be Very Afraid’ is the second single on ¬†(new album) ‘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.”

The new record is out Sep. 23rd via Metal Blade and also features friggin’ Billy Sheehan!
