The Boston-based melodic power/thrash group LET US PREY has premiered a music video for a new song titled “Deadlight Sunset.” The track – which features a guest solo by guitarist Nick Petrino (Dee Snider) – is now available for streaming and download at all digital platforms.
“Deadlight Sunset” represents the first new music from LET US PREY since the release of their 2020 full-length debut, “Virtues of the Vicious,” and is a companion piece of sorts to that album’s “In Suffering,” a deeply personal song that vocalist Marc Lopes (also of Ross The Boss) penned about his struggles with mental health.
LET US PREY’s debut album “Virtues of the Vicious” – released by M-Theory Audio in July 2020 – seamlessly blended elements of seemingly disparate genres, leading Ghost Cult to describe the album as “if Lamb Of God played power metal like Blind Guardian.” The group’s mix of thrash, death, power and progressive metal elements were underpinned with industrial samples and symphonic keyboards, while Lopes matched those effortless shifts with his vocal performance, excelling at thrash/death metal growls, soaring melodic vocals, and searing Halford-esque highs with layered harmonies. “Virtues of the Vicious” also featured guest appearances from a number of notable metal musicians, including Jon Donais (Anthrax, Shadows Fall), “Metal” Mike Chlasciak (Halford, Testament), Jimi Bell (House of Lords, Autograph) and the late Oli Herbert (All That Remains).
The situation involving COVID-19 prevented LET US PREY from scheduling live shows over the last year, but the group will soon be ready to continue impressing audiences as they did prior to 2020 on stages in and around the northeastern United States alongside the likes of Soilwork, Suffocation, Soulfly, Life of Agony, Metal Church, Battle Beast, Doro and Scar Symmetry, among others.
