After the epic sludge of Dopethrone, Dorset's most miserable have gone even further. The music still bludgeons like no other, the songs(?) are still bleak but on the whole this offering feels deeper than anything they have produced so far. The scale and scope of the music is mindblowing (which is precisely the point). One track includes piano and violin parts but instead of sounding contrived, it works brilliantly; an indication of the musical genius at work here. If you liked previous Wizard releases you will love this. It's awesome. A doom masterpiece.

As with other reviewers, I bought this album after hearing most of their others (Come My Fanatics, Dopethrone, Debut, We Live, Witchcult Today). It is definitely different to all of the others, perhaps the most so. The first album was straight-up doom metal and Come My Fanatics hinted at Electric Wizard's desire to add a mind-bending psychedelic quality to their music. Dopethrone was more abrasive and angry (though no less fantastic).

All that aside, this is a fantastic album. It is light on songs, with only 6, but has more experimentation that many of their other albums. One thing I will say is that each song is its own entity in that, though they make up a great album, they are all distinctly different enough to remember. For me, on later albums like Witchcult Today I found the songs to be too similar to one another which made it a less enjoyable listening experience. That said, I can understand some of the criticisms of Let Us Prey. We, the Undead frankly sounds out of place (potentially is would sound a bit out of place on any of their albums due to the up tempo nature of it). It is an okay song, but isn't great. Fortunately, the other five are very strong indeed.

The opener has a fantastic riff that really hooks the listener in and is an all time great EW song. Night and the Shape is an interesting piano led instrumental that I really like; it doesn't really progress, but I guess that isn't the point! Priestess of Mars is also a good song. However, the central pair of Master of Alchemy and The Outsider are what have convinced me to give the 5 and not 4 stars. The former is drenched in feedback at the outset and is punishing in the weight of the riffs (all 2 of them!?

This record threw me the first time I heard it. It really stands apart from their other releases. Electric Wizard have always been in my top list of favourite acts and I had gone a long while before I got hold of "Let Us Prey" - Aptly titled, for this is their most trance-enducing recording ever if you ask me. Psychedelic to the point of being rediculous would be a good way to describe this one too. Thats not a bad thing at all however! Rarely, if ever, are many bands able to keep a 9 minute song with only one riff interesting... not only that you are left wanting MORE of the riff after it is over. A strange feeling to feel methinks.

A fantastic feature of this wonderful band is their ability to really hone an album down to a particular style. This one is VERY sludge oriented - more than their other albums. The riffs they employ here are monsterous beasts that would swallow you whole, true, but these ones also have a nastier edge by using that more dark scale often found in sludge music.

This release is also the bands most psychedelic BY FAR. The music oozes tripped out guitar licks and hidden textures that undulate under the music causing a sense of motion and unease. The production, as always, is taken as paramount - you can tell these dudes are audio junkies and for that I really have the utmost respect.

All things said and done - if you ask me this is Electric Wizards finest moment. If you are an Electric Wizard fan then this MUST be a part of your collection.... you shall not be disappointed.

Dopethrone is widely regarded as the best album to be spawned for from this Dorset based doom metal band, whilst a sublime album it is, I cannot help but ultimately conclude 'let us prey' their finest work. This album is just stunning! It is atmospheric, sinister, mind-bending and above all raw. It is in my view a more complete work than Dopethrone, the songs knit well and flow beautifully from each other, the tone is menacing throughout, it is weighty and crushing, yet psychedelic and spacy at the same time.

Not an album for a riff nut, but an ambient, psychedelic masterpiece. I recommend it to anyone with a patient musical ear.

Some unkind Wizard fans might view this album as being low on ideas. Admittedly there are fewer riffs on display here than on their other efforts but that is missing the point of this really rather incredible album. This album is all about the pschedelic madness that these massively stoned eejits have captured so perfectly. Certainly this is their scariest album (and that is really saying something)and possibly now my favourite. It is horribly dense, even by their own suffocating standards, and has so many hidden depths in the the sound and production that it boggles the mind. In fact Wizard, as any fan should know, use production as an instrument in and of itself, it is as integral to their sound as the heaviness of the guitars. Thank Electric Wizard for being willing to push themselves to the very edge to come up with this frankly terrifyingly messed up music so that we don't have to melt our own minds with the relative amount of pschedelic drugs.
Of course this still may not be to every fan's taste, but open your mind (and your mouth) and be prepared to stumble into the distance where a world of lumbering Lovecraftian monstrosities push mind bending substances upon you. (Be careful though.)
