Damnation Defaced is a promising industrial death metal band I discovered about a month ago with their latest single, “Scorn“, released on September 3, 2021. Now, please give the album a listen while reading the rest of the article.
Scorn impressed me with the power of its mix, at first, and without a doubt, I am not the only one who thinks this way after listening to this song once. But right afterward, you begin to be curious if Damnation Defaced will meet my musical expectations. Well, this part depends on the personal taste a bit, yet I’ll share mine with you below.
We must all know that Damnation Defaced is a very experienced death metal band with 15 years of experience in the industry. I respect them first because of this. So, it is not surprising to hear this established sound and style from them at all. Scorn is their latest single and definitely has a powerful music blend that so many metalheads would be glad to bang their heads in my view. I heard influences from the traditional death metal bands, from modern death metal such as Gojira, progressive/dark/atmospheric death metal such as Opeth, and an opening minded approach, industrial metal, specifically from Rammstein’s Deutschland.
I personally believe that music is all about the collective success of an exciting musical blend. Those who perform well make this happen this way or another. In our case, Damnation Defaced has already achieved many things in their careers so far, which, stuck together and making music was one of the most admirable things in any band’s case, and still pushing everything forward. So long story short, Scorn is proof that these gentlemen deserve all the respect in this world.
