New Fearless Records signing Kill The Lights, who feature former members of Bullet For My Valentine and Throw The Fight, have shared their cover of Testament‘s 1988-released classic thrash anthem “Into The Pit”.

To capture the essence and aesthetic of the time period that the original was released, the band crafted a video that has an authentic VHS vibe.

“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 Thomas. “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.”

The band are currently working on their debut album with more information to be revealed shortly.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
