Boston metallers Let Us Prey are gearing up for the release of their full-length debut, ‘Virtues of the Vicious,’ on July 24th through M-Theory Audio (pre-order).
Today, the band have revealed their lyric video for new track “The Saint of Killers,” which features the late Oli Herbert (All That Remains). The song is influenced by DC Comics series ‘Preacher’ and flicks such as ‘The Terminator’ and ‘Blade Runner,’ and sees Let Us Prey guitarist Jesse Near, a former student of Herbert, performing a gnarly solo.
Here’s more info from vocalist Marc Lopes:
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.
