Only the band themselves can let us know when this was actually recorded but seeing as there is a guest solo from the much loved All That Remains guitarist Oli Herbert on “The Saint of Killers” and he tragically passed away in October 2019, it seems that the upcoming Let Us Prey album has been sat waiting for a while. But then, good things come to those who wait, right? “Virtues Of The Vicious” was recorded by Nick Bellmore (Hatebreed, Toxic Holocaust, Five Finger Death Punch) and Pete Rutcho (Revocation, Havok, Bury Your Dead), with the latter also handling mixing and mastering. 24th July is the date it to finally see the light of day via M-Theory Audio with the track itself being inspired by the DC Comics series “Preacher” and films such as “The Terminator” and “Blade Runner“.
Vocalist Marc Lopes comments: “This tune is extremely special to me for the simple fact of getting to work with brother Oli Herbert, and now – especially after the misfortune of his passing – it stands as our tribute to his memory. Our mutual love for comics, movies and metal is how we became good friends in the first place after a chance meeting at a show I was playing with a metal cover band I was in. Oli was all about jamming a shredding solo for us, as we wanted to work together and this song seemed perfect.”
