Fearless Records‘ latest signing Kill the Lights dropped their new single ‘Shed My Skin’ earlier this year, and while we’re still waiting to hear of a new album from the band, they’ve decided to give us a fun ol’ cover of classic thrash anthem, ‘Into the Pit’ from metal legends, Testament. On the band’s new feat, drummer Moose shares:
“There were a ton of cover songs options we could have gone with, and we did consider covering a pop song in our style. But we decided to cover ‘Into the Pit’ by the mighty Testament purely because it’s a classic song that’s fun to play. We wanted to stay true to the original as closely as possible, to pay our respects to metal royalty. A great song by an amazing band.”
While seeing these guys cover a pop song would have been an intriguing experience, this take on a metal classic is something that doesn’t sway too far from the band’s musical style. Give it a thrash and see for yourself below!
