NEWS: Let Us Prey take to Sunset Drive…

Having been described as “if Lamb Of God played power metal like Blind Guardian” by Ghost Cult Magazine, Boston-based melodic Power Thrash act Let Us Prey have returned with a second single since their debut album “Virtues of the Vicious”, which was released by M-Theory Audio last summer. Continuing the albums trend for guest appearances 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), this time out for “Deadlight Sunset” they are joined by Nick Petrino (Dee Snider) for a guest solo.

Vocalist Marc Lopes (Ross The Boss) comments: “Written originally as a bonus track that wasn’t finished in time for the final ‘Virtues of the Vicious’ release, it’s a Part II to ‘In Suffering’ in the context of its subject matter of depression, suicide and the struggles of mental dis-ease. ‘Deadlight Sunset’ is a journey into the mindset of wanting to commit suicide – the helplessness, the comforting thought and relief in thinking this option is the solution. This is a first-hand account from me personally – a very dark subject, a very real subject, but something that needs to be discussed and with no shame. Luckily for me, I’m still here to tell the dark tale, to hopefully convey a message that there is a better solution and to bring awareness to this growing matter. We also have our good friend Nick Petrino from Dee Snider’s band doing a killer solo that was a bit out of his normal wheelhouse as well, and it just completes the vibe on this tune. We’re never afraid to go against the norm within the metal genre, as LET US PREY has many shades, colors and dynamics to what we do, so always expect the unexpected. (Wait ‘til you hear the next record.) Welcome to The Deadlight Sunset.
