Tokyo, Japan’s death metal stalwarts DEFILED, formed in 1992, have kicked off their previously announced European tour. The leg of the ‘‘Towards Inevitable Ruin’ world tour started yesterday, March 15th, in Utrecht, before continuing on through Iceland and Germany, as the band travels to Japan and the Far East. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.
DEFILED are streaming in support of their newest album, ‘Towards Inevitable Ruin’. The album, their first new album in over 4 years, sees the band return to their savage, raw death metal roots. 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 was created by Wes Benscoter (SLAYER, NILE, CATTLE DECAPITATION, AUTOPSY, BLOODBATH, and more), the track list can be found below.
