LET US PREY Unveil Music Video For Blistering New Song ‘Halo Crown’ (feat. Anthrax’s Jon Donais) Dark melodic power/thrash group’s debut full-length, ‘Virtues of the Vicious,’ due July 24

May 2, 2020

Bridging the gap between progressive, power and thrash metal, the Boston-based LET US PREY – fronted by vocalist Marc Lopes, best known as the front man of Manowar/The Dictators co-founder Ross Friedman's group Ross The Boss – will release their debut full-length, “Virtues of the Vicious,” on July 24 via M-Theory Audio. Today, the band proudly unveils “Halo Crown,” the second taste of the new album and a must-listen for fans of Nevermore, Forbidden and Death. A music video for the song – which features a guest guitar solo by Anthrax lead guitarist Jon Donais – can be seen at this location:
Pre-orders for “Virtues of the Vicious” on CD and limited-edition blood red vinyl are available now at smarturl.com/LUP and www.m-theoryaudio.com/store. Digital pre-orders include instant downloads of both “Halo Crown” and the album’s opening track, “Above the Vaulted Sky.” Both tracks can now be streamed on Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp and other digital platforms.
“The basic premise of ’Halo Crown’ is about technology becoming the new religion/god/power of humankind,” Lopes says. “It’s a dark, fast and furious tune with machine-like precision in its execution, which matches the vibe of the lyrical content. Add on a lead by Anthrax guitarist Jonathan Donais, and this one is a serious ripper.”
Led by Lopes (who designed the album’s cover art) and guitarist Jon Morency, LET US PREY incorporates numerous subgenres of metal into their style while still sounding organic. The group's adventurous music sees elements of thrash, death, power and progressive metal meld seamlessly with industrial samples and symphonic keyboards. The drumming is surgically precise and blisteringly fast without sounding mechanical; the guitars mix crushing, down-tuned brutality with dense harmonies and ripping leads; and Lopes shifts effortlessly from thrash/death metal growls to soaring melodic vocals and searing Halford-esque highs with layered harmonies.
“Virtues Of The Vicious” – the follow-up to LET US PREY's acclaimed 2016 EP, “The Saint of Killers” – was recorded by Pete Rutcho (Revocation, Havok, Bury Your Dead) and Nick Bellmore (Hatebreed, Toxic Holocaust, Five Finger Death Punch). In addition to Donais, the album also includes a number of notable guest musicians, including “Metal” Mike Chlasciak (Halford), Jimi Bell (House of Lords) and the late Oli Herbert (All That Remains). The album’s track listing is as follows:
Above The Vaulted Sky
Virtues of the Vicious
In Suffering
Halo Crown
Murder Thy Maker
The Saint of Killers
Ghost Echoes
The Cruel Creation of Me
Prey
And Hell Followed With Me
LET US PREY have performed 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.
