News : Premiere: Defiled keep it rough and brutal with “Conspiracy”

By on May 25, 2016

There has been a hell of a lot of good music come out of Japan over the years and Defiled are right up there with the best. In under a couple of weeks time they’ll release their fifth studio album, Towards Inevitable Ruin. Below we’re stoked to have the premiere of new track “Conspiracy”

“DEFILED come barging in like some crusty Godzilla made out of the stuff polished tech death nightmares are made from. These revered Samurai of death metal crush through the spiral ganglion with a sound rawer than shark sushi that still bites. No doubt the low-fi production of their fifth full-length ‘Towards Inevitable Ruin’ owes as much to gutter punk as is possible for a band following the  path of extreme metal. Yet after giving this monster some spins, the apparent fragments start to drift together – starting from a catchy fill, riff or grating grunt that morph into a strange hook relentlessly driving its spike into the brain.”

Towards Inevitable Ruin is due out on July 8th through Season of Mist.
