Swedish metal veterans, The Defaced have released a new video for the song Wreck. It´s taken from the bands upcoming album Charlatans that will be released on Vinyl, CD & digital on March 4!
The Defaced about the song:
“The lyrics are about the aftermath of an ended relationship. The feelings one can feel after the dust has settled after the initial shock and hypertension has left body and soul. One can still have a deep attraction to each other but there is no way the relationship can continue, too much trust and hard words has been spilled along the way and the sadness that can bring to both parties.
We have always been very intrigued by soviet propaganda posters and esthetics. A relationship can sometimes feel like a totalitarian state, where you sometimes can feel that your personal freedom is restricted. I was in East Berlin with my parents a couple of months before the Berlin wall was torn down and I still remember the gloominess of grayness of the buildings and clothes. The lyrics are projected upon walls just like communistic propaganda. I loved how our video producer Rob Hakemo
imitated the Cyrillic alphabet, it created an extra tension to the video.”
The Defaced was formed in 1999 in Helsingborg, Sweden, when members from Darkane, Soilwork and local acts joined forces. Writing, rehearsing, demoing, and gigging eventually led up to landing a record deal.
The debut album Domination Commence was released in 2001. The album rounded up feedback putting the band on the map. In 2003 Karma in Black was released. The album meant a clear progression to a more mature sound which was recognized in the stellar reception of the album. A video was shot for the track Once in Between which gained airtime on various TV channels. Gigs and festival slots followed the album release.
The new album Charlatans, set for release on the 4 of March 2022, took its beginning back in 2019 when Mattias Svensson gave Jens Broman a call. Jens Broman hadn’t been working with music to any major extent since 2010 when he left Darkane. Since the release of the album, Anomaly, back in 2006, The Defaced had slowly started to dissolve during 2007-2008 and was finally set on pause indefinitely in late 2008. Mattias explained on the phone that he had written a bunch of songs that he wanted Jens to listen to. The intention was to start up The Defaced again. Jens loved the songs immediately and slowly during 2019 Mattias and Jens started to set up a work process for continuing working on the songs. – It all came very naturally, just like in the old days, says Jens. Klas Ideberg shared the same thoughts and ambitions and after recruiting new drummer Bob Ruben a new start of the band was on the table.
