Philadelphia-based trad metal band Power Theory would like to welcome renowned metal guitarist Steve Stegg, into our family as our newest band member. Steve is a founding member and former guitarist for Blood Feast, Sleepy Hollow, and 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,” guitarist Bob “BB” Ballinger explained.
“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.”
Immediate plans for the band are two area shows in August:
FalloutZine Presents: at O’Reilly’s Pub in Philadelphia, PA – October 31, Anvil Bitch, Sinister Realm, Power Theory, Hammer Fight, and Mistress
Magnetar Media and Biz R Entertainment Present at Jimmy’s Place in Allentown, PA: North American Assault – White Wizzard, Icarus Witch, Widow, Power Theory, and Infernal Opera
“We will then take a short break from live shows to start demo tracking for a new full length CD we are planning to start recording in February 2013 and release in 2013 as well. We are currently negotiating with a legendary artist/producer for the project (more to come soon on that). Steve will be a very big part of the writing and recording process for the new album, and we will resume some live shows in October 2012. European dates are being planned for 2013 with Red Lion Music as well as Warriors of Metal Fest VI, and some US tour dates with Axxenstar and Taberah for summer 2013.”
Power Theory released An Axe to Grind on June 29th via Pure Steel Records. The album is available at www.powertheory.net
