Biography

There are multiple artists with this name:

1) Defender is a House band from France. This is a one-time collaboration between Alan Braxe, Fred Falke, and Savage. They’ve released only one mini-EP, called Defender, in 2005 on Vulture Music. It also appears to be the most successful Defender on last.fm.

2) Defender is a Chicago based band. The brainchild of childhood friends Jorge Ledezma (guitars, keyboards) and Gabi Meszaros (bass, keyboards) who began making home recordings and sound collages in the early 90’s. From the beginning Jorge found himself in the role of producer/engineer, often inviting various friends and acquaintances to sit in on the sessions.

3) Defender is a Dutch Speed Thrash metal band from the 80’s,

The beginning of Defender starts at the end of 1984 when guitar player Bart decided to leave Hammerhawk, his present band at that time. At a concert of Ronnie James Dio and Queensryche in Amsterdam Bart and drummer Remco met eachother for the first time and started rehearsing the first songs. Soon after their first meeting vocalist Simon and bass player Harm joined the band and after a couple of months this line-up recorded their first demo ‘Tales of the unexpected’ at the Oktopus studio in the beginning of 1985.

Immediately after recording this demo the band found a second guitarplayer: Jozzy and serious live action began. During 1985 and 1986 Defender played a lot of gigs in the Netherlands as headliner and together with Martyr, Alied Forces, Hammerhawk, Cyclone and Agent Steel. At the same time the demo was spreading all over the world and resulted in many possitive reactions.
