Formed in 2005, THE DEFILED exploded onto an unsuspecting metal scene in 2008 with their debut EP »1888« before devoting themselves to establishing a reputation as one of the most exhilarating live bands in living memory. When the band’s brutally irresistible debut album »Grave Times« dropped in 2011, the response was universally ecstatic, with major rock and metal press queuing up to proclaim THE DEFILED as the saviours of modern British heaviness. Having risen rapidly to the top of the UK metal tree, THE DEFILED are now poised to obliterate any and all opposition and make a claim for immortality - with their monstrous second album »Daggers« and first for Nuclear Blast Entertainment that is OUT NOW!
