One year on from their performance on a floating Iceberg in the Greenland Sea, UK metallers THE DEFILED have been rewarded by having their risky stunt immortalised in the 2016 edition of the GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS.
“Breaking Records certainly makes an interesting change from making them” says Keyboard player The AvD. “As a child this was a book of wonder and excitement, so it’s pretty mindblowing to open this book and see myself and my bandmates looking back at me.“
The four piece braved arctic conditions and fast flowing ice to perform a 30 minute set on an Iceberg – the first band to ever do so – as part of Jagermeister’s Ice Cold Gig series.
A video documentary of the expedition can be seen here:
The band also filmed a music video while in Greenland for the song ‘Five Minutes’:
