Playing a gig with Metallica - help me live out my dream! :-)

Recommended Posts

Hi folks! :D

 

Amazingly, i've gotten a unique chance to live out my all-time biggest dream ever since i was a little kid - warming up for none other than the mighty 'Tallica with my band DEFECTO!

 

This would probably be the biggest experience in my life. :smile:

 

However, in order to win, we need to get as many votes as possible in an online competition.

 

Therefore, Ikindly ask that you help me getting this dream to come true - it only takes a quick vote on "DEFECTO" in the following link:

I know this is a lot to ask for, but there's just no way to tell you how much it would mean to me! :smile:

 

So I'm sorry for the plug, but i hope you can appreciate how big an opportunity this is for us.

 

If you want to listen to us before you vote, you can find a couple of videos here:

Oooh man, nice fuckin cover there! (And I love your facial expressions too XD) I'll definitely check out your other songs.

Welp, I'm hooked, dammit! :D Do you guys have this on iTunes or is it just CD? (I don't live near a store that sells CDs and I hardly ever get out that way).

Oh and I would appreciate it greatly if you could show me the lyrics for the first one. (I have a problem hearing things properly unless I can read it)

    • Full length number 19 from overkill certainly makes a splash in the energy stakes, I mean there's some modern thrash bands that are a good two decades younger than Overkill who can only hope to achieve the levels of spunk that New Jersey's finest produce here.  That in itself is an achievement, for a band of Overkill's stature and reputation to be able to still sound relevant four decades into their career is no mean feat.  Even in the albums weaker moments it never gets redundant and the energy levels remain high.  There's a real sense of a band in a state of some renewed vigour, helped in no small part by the addition of Jason Bittner on drums.  The former Flotsam & Jetsam skinsman is nothing short of superb throughout "The Wings of War" and seems to have squeezed a little extra out of the rest of his peers.

      The album kicks of with a great build to opening track "Last Man Standing" and for the first 4 tracks of the album the Overkill crew stomp, bash and groove their way to a solid level of consistency.  The lead work is of particular note and Blitz sounds as sneery and scathing as ever.  The album is well produced and mixed too with all parts of the thrash machine audible as the five piece hammer away at your skull with the usual blend of chugging riffs and infectious anthems.  


      There are weak moments as mentioned but they are more a victim of how good the strong tracks are.  In it's own right "Distortion" is a solid enough - if not slightly varied a journey from the last offering - but it just doesn't stand up well against a "Bat Shit Crazy" or a "Head of a Pin".  As the album draws to a close you get the increasing impression that the last few tracks are rescued really by some great solos and stomping skin work which is a shame because trimming of a couple of tracks may have made this less obvious. 

      4/5
