Mike LePond’s Silent Assassins have released a lyric video for the song ‘Ironborn’, from the upcoming album ‘Whore Of Babylon’ and, like the previous track ‘Dracul Son’, Mike has produced a video run-through of the song writing process and an in-depth look at the riffs and song structure.

Of the song, Mike LePond tells us: “‘Ironborn’ is a Power Metal punch in the face. Fast and furious riffing with the big Priest-like drop in the middle to ensure the ultimate headbanging experience. All of this bound together by an epic chorus that will invade your mind for all eternity. Game of Thrones fans rejoice!”

On ‘Whore Of Babylon’, as well as fantastic bass, LePond also plays all rhythm guitars on the album, while the core of Silent Assassins remains the same as before.
