Collusion, the band’s debut album through Siege Of Amida Records, is summary of 3 years of keeping the bands collective nose to the grindstone. Fighting through stolen equipment, stolen vans, poverty and 15 consecutive member changes vocalist Matthew Jones comments that ‘We are made stronger by everything that brings us down, and we make this show through our music. We’re pissed off with the world.’ The album emanates anger throughout, but Martyr Defiled have also found another musical string in their bow – atmosphere. The album flows through several stages, and by far the most interesting is the low key clean sections, the dynamic breaks in their songs and the almost post rock/progressive finale in Archae.
The band are currently moving forward with their as yet untitled sophomore effort. Expect more crushing groove, more atmosphere and much more sophistication on the next record – expect something playing to their strengths and much more comfortable exposing their weaknesses. Recent exposure on prime time Ch4 program Hollyoaks, as well as constant touring throughout the UK and mainland Europe and features in many UK national publications including Metal Hammer will leave no one in question of the hype Martyr Defiled create around themselves, and their music speaks for itself – pure hate and aggression against the system that seems incapable of holding them down
