Genre: Rock Metal
London based band The Defiled have been stalking UK music venues for the past few years creating their unique mixture of groove-laden hardcore metal with an electronic ambience that provides a welcome separation from any band treading the boards on the British metal scene at current.
Add to the mix that The Defiled are just about the most aggressive live band you’ll have seen for a long time, returning to the good old days of excess that’s been vacant for far too long. Smashed instruments, band members in with the audience and the odd battered and bruised spectator thrown in for good measure all make up a live show that stands above and beyond the call of duty.
Explosive tours and support slots with the likes of Static -X, Deathstars, The 69 Eyes, Cancer Bats, August Burns Red and Lacuna Coil, a performance at the very first Sonisphere Festival in the UK and gigs that have covered the length and breadth of the Europe over the last year has won The Defiled a varied and dedicated fan-base throughout the UK and beyond.
The glowing reviews that the band have received throughout the UK music press to date prove that it’s only a matter of time before the band are a significant force in the world of metal.
The Defiled’s debut mini-album 1888 is out now on In At The Deep End Records (Gallows, Architects, Send More Paramedics etc .)
