Defiant are to release their brand new EP "Vanguards Of Misrule" on June 26th, 2022.
"Vanguards Of Misrule celebrates and encompasses everything that Defiant is over the last 17 years of its turbulent existence and shapes the future of the things to come. It is our most focused work yet and a classic example of an EP with a strength of a full length." - says T.K. (vocals, lyrics)
Kris (guitars, song writing) continues - "Definitely our most complex material so far that will not leave anyone indifferent. And a good introduction to what follows next.".
Defiant is a death / black metal band from Croatia formed in 2005. On the last 2 albums they played melodic death metal, but after some changes in the band they decided to change their style to pure death / black metal. Defiant's debut album "The End of Beginning" was self-released in autumn 2006.
In 2008 some new promo stuff was recorded for the upcoming album "Without Religion There Is No Fear", but because of some problems the band split-up. While everything was on hold, Defiant's founder Kris worked on some new music, more brutal than previous stuff.
2011 was a new beginning for the band; new blood was recruited and after a few shows with a new line-up, Defiant was ready for recording a new album in "Era Of Substitution", which was more extreme than previous works from the band. In 2012 Defiant signed for Grom Records.
In 2015. Defiant recorded their third album "Morbid Spiritual Illness" with the new line up after a two-year break; the new album was recorded at Studio Armageddon. Also in 2015 and Defiant signed a contract with Swiss label Miner Recordings.
In 2020 the band welcomed Zoran Stjepic on bass. The band co-released the split "Ways Ov Damnation" with the Hungarian black / death metal band Dvvad via Tortured Tree productions.
January 2022 saw Defiant record material for their new album "Insurrection Icon" at Hellsound Studio, Czech Republic with new vocalist / lyricist Tomislav Kuternik. The new darker opus "Insurrection Icon" was unleashed May 25th via Spanish label Art Gates records. The album was met with rave reviews from international and local metal sites, proclaiming it to be the band's best album so far.
In the same month the album was promoted on the "Insurrection in the East" tour, mainly across Eastern Europe with new drummer Sead Hadžić (ToxicDeath, Contusio).
Due to Covid-19 Defiant entirely focuses on writing new material which spawned their first ever EP named "Vanguards Of Misrule" which will see the darkness of the day 26th June 2022. It is dedicated to LG Petrov from Entombed.
The new album "Mammon Mantra" will be recorded in 2023 with special guests.
