Def Con One Debuts New Video

Metal Shock Finland has debuted the new video from Def Con One, titled "Skinhead Shaped Dent," which can be viewed at this location or below. The track comes from the Newcastle band's recent sophomore release, "II."

"Skinhead Shaped Dent" was filmed at Garage Studios in South Shields. The band commented about the interesting choice of song title:

“The song title came about when we were on our way to Les Fest in Scotland we stopped off at some services for some food and as we were leaving the restaurant, a car nearly knocked us down. Steve said if the car had hit us there would be a big skinhead shaped dent in the car, we all fell about laughing thinking it was so funny but then thought it would make a killer song title!”

Senior Manager Ali Blackdiamond comments:

“This song and video lives up to what we expect to hear from Def Con One – brutal chugging riffs combined with Davey’s vocals and Antton’s precision drumming makes for the ultimate metal listening experience, don’t miss it!”
