Defecto is Denmark’s newest and finest addition to melodic and progressive metal, featuring huge catchy choruses, massive riffs, blazing solos and grandiose symphonies with a modern feel. Being spotted by Grammy award-winning producer Flemming Rasmussen (Metallica), Defecto is without a doubt the most promising addition to the Danish metal scene since Volbeat.
On 1 December 2017, Defecto’s anticipated second album Nemesis was released to critical acclaim, scoring top grades in many Danish as well as international magazines. For Nemesis, Defecto’s musical mission was to create songs that have an instant impact on the listener, with a focus on songwriting that breaks down musical barriers instead of trying to fit into a certain sound.
Although Defecto is a relative newcomer to the scene with only two albums under their belt, the band already boasts an impressive CV: doing sold-out tours in Denmark, touring around Europe, playing at prestigious festivals such as Copenhell and supporting giants such as Metallica and Rammstein.
Defecto is definitely “one to watch” and their sophomore album Nemesis is another step toward proving their massive potential.
