By now, chances are you’ve heard of Philadelphia-based traditional metal outfit Power Theory. They’ve received a considerable amount of media attention recently, given the band not even two months ago released a new album, called An Axe to Grind.
In the event you missed all that press coverage, head on down to the end of this post. There, you will find “Colossus,” a ripping cut from Power Theory’s album. If you like your metal epic with serious musicianship, you’ll totally dig this track.
Again, Power Theory’s new disc is available now.
The band also received considerable media coverage following the addition of guitarist Steve Stegg — a founding member and former guitarist for Blood Feast, Sleepy Hollow, and motherfucking Tapping the Vein.
“Power Theory has been looking to add a second dual rhythm/lead guitarist since the end of the recording sessions for An Axe to Grind, but our commitments haven’t given us the time to do anything but start to compile a list of potential candidates,” says guitarist Bob “BB” Ballinger.
“Steve is a great friend and supporter of the band, and has been a regular at our local shows; in fact he replaced me as the Colossus guitarist and played with Jay Pekala prior to his first Sleepy Hollow tenure. We would always jokingly added Steve as our top candidate when we discussed it, but knew he was very busy with Sleepy Hollow and there was no chance, so we moved on to other names,” added BB.
“Steve informed us he had become available in mid July and was interested in jamming to see if there was chemistry and it was evident from the first few minutes it was a great fit for both Power Theory and Steve.”
Now, listen to “Colossus” and rock out like the pirate you are.
