Upcoming release: "Infinite Regress"

Release date: Fri, Jan 24 2020, US Fri, Jan 24 2020

Death metal maniacs DEFILED are now premiering the third new track taken from their forthcoming album, 'Infinite Regress'. The album is scheduled for release on January 24th, 2020 via Season of Mist.

'Masses in Chaos' can now be viewed via the official Season of Mist YouTube channel HERE!

The band comment on the new track: "This video was taken at our previous rehearsal/recording room in Okinawa, Japan. This is where we recorded our new album. Sadly, the building was demolished and we kinda miss our 'home', knowing too well we'll never see it again. By premiering this video we're also sharing a small, yet meaningful, souvenir with all of you. As some of you may guess, the song is about George Orwell's 1984... Enjoy!!"

DEFILED come yet again, barging in like some crusty Godzilla made out of the stuff polished tech death nightmares are made from. The revered Samurai of death metal crush through the spiral ganglion with a sound rawer than shark sushi that still bites.

This time it took the Japanese three years to deliver a follow-up to the critically acclaimed 'Towards Inevitable Ruin' (2016) which was not pretty, nor pretending to be. Instead, they reduced death metal to the bare bones and with this, showing its naked brutality.

'In Crisis' (2011), which came out eight years after 'Divination' (2003) shook the world awake to the band from the Land of the Rising Sun. DEFILED climbed to the top of Asia's death metal scene with the release of their self-financed EP 'Defeat of Sanity' (1994) two years after their inception. Founded in Tokyo, they quickly combined the brutal and technical aspects of this mad metropolis into their own unique sound. Their first album 'Erupted Wrath' (1999) was mixed by genre legend Jim Morris in Tampa, Florida, who returned to work on sophomore opus 'Ugliness Revealed' (2001) as well as third full-length 'Divination'. The Japanese opened for extreme metal legends such as CANNIBAL CORPSE, MORBID ANGEL and toured with INCANTATION and MAYHEM to name but a few.

DEFILED are back with a bang. 'Infinite Regress' is not for the faint of heart or intended for easy listening, but when giving the new monster some spins, the apparent fragments start to drift together once more– starting from a catchy fill, riff or grating grunt that morph into a strange hook relentlessly driving its spike into the brain.
