Brazilian Axe Wizard, Alex Meister, launches second single "Lonely Is The Night" from the forthcoming album "Rock And A Hard Place." Hair Metal and Arena Rock have taken another step into the now and Meister is truly making his mark.

"Former Pleasure Maker and Marenna-Meister guitarist & songwriter, Alex Meister, launches a hook-driven, classic, hair metal tune that takes you right back to the glory day's.

Meister Comments: "This Tune is a little heavier than the first single, but brings another nice groove and chorus."

The upcoming album, "Rock And A Hard Place," is the 6th of the Guitarist/Songwriters career and promises to be just what the doctor ordered if you love hair metal and arena rock.

Alex Meister has been a guitarist for over 30 years and has worked as a teacher for just over 20. He went to expression bands in Rio de Janeiro in the 90’s until he became a member of the Heavy Metal band Thoten, with whom he performed several times in Brazil, including the opening show for the American band Savatage in 1998. He has also performed in the Gods Of Metal Festival in Milan, Italy, alongside Whitesnake, Motörhead, Queensrÿche, Saxon and Angra, in 2003. During his time at the festival, he was interviewed by Italian MTV.

During his career, he has edited five CDs inside and outside of Brazil; An instrumental/solo (Alex Meister “My Way” in 2011), three with the Hard Rock band Pleasure Maker (“Love On the Rocks” in 2004, “Twisted Desire” in 2008 and “Dancin' With Danger” in 2018) and his recent project Marenna-Meister (“Out of Reach” in 2020). In addition to being the guitarist, Alex also acted as the main composer and producer for all of the mentioned works.

In 2019 Meister released two singles for different projects, marking the new phase of his career and ending the cycle of the band Pleasure Maker after more than 15 years on the road. The first single, "Just Thinkin 'About You,” reprised his solo career and debut on lead vocals. That was accompanied by the re-recording the track “Love On The Rocks,” which opened the doors for his debut album. The second single, "Follow Me Up," with the new project Marenna-Meister, culminated in the signing of the contract with the label Lions Pride Music (Denmark) for the worldwide release of their 5th CD "Out of Reach" on September 28th 2020.

Alex has also made appearances recording songs by other artists and bands such as the project, Paradise Inc. from São Paulo. Alex contributed in a work with several guests such as Mark Boals (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen) and shared the guitars with Edu Ardanuy (Dr. Sin) on the single "Secrets.” He also appeared in 2016 with Argentine vocalist Alec Michels, on the single "Sacrifice,” which is part of Michel's solo album "Marcado A Sangre.” This lead to Alex performing twice in Buenos Aires (Argentina), for the dissemination of this work in the same year and also gave interviews to websites and specialized magazines. Together with all the work, he also served as a technical reviewer of books on methods for guitar for some Brazilian publishers.

The new Alex Meister album is slated for a December 16th release with singles releasing as preambles to the album launch.
