I was talking to Tommy Victor after the Prong show in Köln and he told me that him and Monte are still good friends and that he sees him regularly.
Tommy was also telling me about Monte’s return to metal with his latest solo album.
To be honest, I’d completely forgotten that The Montster was going to record something heavy again. I’d seen it on his website a long time ago and hadn’t been back since. You might want to check it out:
Also his solo stuff is on Spotify too.
Anyway, while browsing Monte’s site, I also discovered Tommy had been playing bass with him in a band called Citizen Vein! Check out this video of them in action:
