We have a very special video for you to check out! The American sci-fi power metal duo DIRE PERIL  have released a new video featuring their guitar playthrough. The song featured is  Yautja (Hunter Culture)” which is off their recently released debut album “The Extraterrestrial Compendium” via Divebomb Records. ‘It was the last track written for their sci-fi inspired album but was made the opener for the release. The song is a 7-minute thrasher taking you on an up close and personal hunt with the Predator species from the classic 80s movie along with it being based on The Predator’s expanded universe in other formats’.

The song is a shredtastic track and when you watch the video you can really appreciate the precision and ferocity that these guys deliver on their tracks. Check out the video here:
