Symphony X:n ja Ross The Bossin riveistä tuttu basisti Mike LePond julkaisee kolmannen levyn Mike LePond’s Silent Assassins -yhtyeen kanssa. ”Whore Of Babylon” ilmestyy Silver Lining Musicin kautta 29.5.2020. Ensimmäinen single ja lyriikkavideo ”Dracul Son” -kappaleesta on katsottavissa alta. LePond soittaa levyllä basson lisäksi kaikki rytmikitaraosuudet.

Basisti kommentoi:

Alan Tecchio (vocals) has been with me from the beginning, and possesses such an incredible amount of range and power that we’re always gonna work together, and just like Lance Barnewold (guitars), he will definitely be in a touring situation. Jamming with these guys is a no stress situation. There are no egos, there’s no bullshit, it’s just love of this metal music that drives us all, and I think you can clearly hear that on “Whore Of Babylon”.

 

Years ago, I started to watch a lot of the History Channel, and something flipped in my head. I never wanted to write about hot chicks and stuff like that, so when I started to learn more about history, I knew that the marriage of history with old school crushing metal riffs would be great, epic, and powerful. I wrote the first two solo albums on that premise, and this new album is another step up on that model. Vlad The Impaler and Countess Bathory? These are epic historical tales!

 

Take the story of ’The Whore Of Babylon,’ which in my interpretation was this demonic woman who seduces you, takes you to hell and takes your soul. Come on! That is some story, and it just matches up with this glorious music perfectly. All these stories do, and I hope that people will be stimulated into seeking more information and learning even more about these amazing figures. Epic tales go with epic metal!
