MIKE LEPOND'S SILENT ASSASSINS’ new album 'Whore Of Babylon' is available on CD, digital formats and special D2C bundles HERE

Forging a union between the mighty worlds of heavy metal and ancient history, MIKE LEPOND’S SILENT ASSASSINS are on a mission. Whore Of Babylon, their third studio album, is a no-holds barred, gauntlet-thrown, true heavy metal mission led by LEPOND, known worldwide as one of the foremost bass virtuosos in heavy metal music and a member of progressive metal band Symphony X. If you never knew what it was like to experience the might of metal from the old school, Whore Of Babylon will riotously teach you.

From the scintillating fury of “Dracul Son” to the baroque mystery of the title track, with Whore Of Babylon LEPOND has written and produced the sort of album that traditional metalheads have been dreaming of. Amidst the furious aural assault, LEPOND also marches through the tales of some of history’s most fascinating and brutal characters.

LEPOND recorded the album between various tours with Symphony X, working in Symphony X guitarist Michael Romeo’s home studio. LEPOND also plays all rhythm guitars, while the core of Silent Assassins remains the same.

Lepond comments:

“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.”
