ACT OF DEFIANCE Begin Mixing Debut AlbumFriday, 10th April 2015
ACT OF DEFIANCE, the new band featuring former MEGADETH members Shawn Drover (drums) and Chris Broderick (guitar), alongside ex-SCAR THE MARTYR singer Henry Derek Bonner, and SHADOWS FALL’s Matt Bachand (bass), will begin mixing its debut album on Monday, April 13 with world-renowned producer Chris “Zeuss” Harris (ROB ZOMBIE, HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL). A tentative summer release via Metal Blade Records is expected.
In a recent post on ACT OF DEFIANCE’s Facebook page, Drover stated about his new band: “People often ask me: what does the new music sound like? I loathe putting music in a nice tiny ‘heavy metal sub-genre’ box, so I won’t. Like I have said from the get-go, this music is 100 percent pure heavy metal made purely for musical purposes. We are creating music that we totally love, with hopes that others will dig it as well, which, at the end of the day, is all you really can try to do, in my opinion. Elements of thrash, progressive, traditional, dynamic — it’s all there and then some.
“We have been working with Travis Smith (OPETH, NEVERMORE, OVERKILL, SANCTUARY) for our artwork, to which he has really come up with some twisted, bizarre, awesome concepts (right up my alley), which has also been very exciting.”
