Defiler - Pangea (Review)

Defiler is a quite new band and also has very younger members around the age of 17-19 and is labelled as deathcore by their fan base. The band shot up quite fast in popularity due to their quite popular music video to Cryomancer. The video getting popular for one being a quite nice song and two for having the vocalist pulling some pretty funny faces. The vocals are all screams and all pretty much in the low end of screams. The guitar is quite simple, and is more of the melodic writing than actually technical, but I guess this comes with their young age. The guitar has a very crunchy chug sound to it, which is quite different to other bands, but the mixing is done well so it works for their tracks. The drumming is some what not to complicated, but not bad, quite enjoyable. The songs are heavy but have a style which is hard to describe but it pleasant to listen to so I am not complaining, I did see a review of Cryomancer which was quite negative, but then again, this review was a review about some guy bitching about how he doesn't like deathcore. The band is worthy of being checked out though, so look up their other songs, I also put Cryomancer in my grooveshark widget, so never know what you will see in that widget. Overall the album is quite nice but the songs seem kind of similar though.

DUDE, I was just at the lead singer's tumblr a coupla days back.

Huh...didn't know this was his style of music. All I knew was that line "I WANT TO SEE YOU CRY BITCH!"

I still dislike screamo bands (they're all alike, etc.), but I gotta admit...such a powerful sound from a guy that short!

Despite the fact that they're teenagers (and thus deserving of only my loathing as most teens have the taste of a dead horse and the personality of vapor rub fumes), I have to give these guys props and serious cred just for the fuckin' faces the lead singer makes.

They still look like the kinda kids I used to get bullied with I MEAN BULLY, THE KINDA KIDS I USED TO BULLY!
