Tokyo, Japan’s death metal stalwarts DEFILED, formed in 1992, are streaming a live video shot while on tour in Mongolia last year. The video showcases the band ripping through the new track titled “Conspiracy”, and is streaming now at Metal Underground.
“Conspiracy” comes off the band’s newly released album, ‘Towards Inevitable Ruin’, their first new album in over 4 years. The album is streaming now at the official DEFILED Bandcamp page.
‘Towards Inevitable Ruin’, hailed as “so many things the current modern metal scene (or even grindcore) is not, it’s a winner. Score this one for the human element…songs that are brutal as they are effective.” (Dead Rhetoric) is available here. The artwork for the album, by Wes Benscoter (SLAYER, NILE, CATTLE DECAPITATION, AUTOPSY, BLOODBATH, and more) and track list can be found below.
Regarding the video, DEFILED founder Yusuke Sumita comments:
“For most people in the West, metal in Asia probably remains much of a mystery. We want to show how far the love for heavy music reaches and were therefore glad to take the opportunity to record a song of our show at a great festival in Mongolia. Metal gets you further than you might think. We hope that you will enjoy this video and the enthusiasm of the crowd.”
