New York based shredder Travis Beck and vocal madman Vesa Mattila, hailing from Helsinki, Finland, began collaborating on a project based upon heavy music. A studio project entitled New Hell Rising was forged. Beck composed and recorded demo tracks over the net with Mattila, and drummer Mikko Tormanen contributed his incredible skills in the process. Once the song structure was in place, Travis blended his wall of guitar tones in his home studio, while Vesa and Mikko entered the studio in Finland with Jaakko Nikko, who layed his bass lines down in one take."Through The Eyes Of Prey" is their first collaborative single, a brutal display of metal, written by a legion of musicians across the world.
