Act Of Defiance – Heavy Metal Group
Los Angeles based supergroup Act of Defiance fuses death metal, thrash, hardcore, and speed metal to create harsh, abrasive extreme metal. Formed in 2014 after Megadeth guitarist Chris Broderick and drummer Shawn Drover both departed the group, Act of Defiance also features the talents of frontman Henry Derek (Scar the Martyr, Thrown Into Exile) and bassist Matt Bachand (Shadows Fall). Drover had been a member of the legendary Megadeth for ten years, Broderick for six.
In 2015, Act of Defiance released their debut LP Birth and the Burial on Metal Blade. Two years later, the band followed their well-received first album with Old Scars, New Wounds, an impressive evolution in their sound which showcased their ability for technical, speed-driven, punishing metal. In July 2018, Act of Defiance hit the road for a North American tour with Armored Saint.Less
