The band shreds the late 80’s thrash anthem, “Into The Pit”

Emerging talent Kill the Lights have paid tribute to thrash royalty with an authentic rendition of Testament’s 1988 staple, “Into the Pit.” The band has paired the release with a quarantine-esque video produced with a VHS-style accent to really embrace the era.

“There were a ton of cover songs options we could have gone with, and we did consider covering a pop song in our style,” shares drummer Moose. “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.”

In terms of credentials, Kill the Lights features former members of Bullet For My Valentine, Still Remains, Throw The Fight, and Threat Signal.
