In October 2010, after a few months living in the studio working on demos and recording, Castro Valley, CA’s Defiler released the debut album "Pangaea" as a digital album only. Soon after, scraping together enough money from digital sales of the release, the band shot its first ever music video for "Cryomancer."
The viral success of the "Cryomancer" video immediately caught the attention of Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed, Jasta, Kingdom of Sorrow) and Stillborn Records. Shortly thereafter, Defiler vocalist Jake Pelzl and Jasta started working together on re-issuing "Pangaea" as a physical CD for the first time ever. Due to popular demand, Stillborn Records is now fast tracking the re-issue and making it available for a limited time as a CD/T-shirt bundle.
The re-issue of "Pangaea" was remixed/re-masterd by Zeuss (Hatebreed, Shadows Fall, Emmure, Chimaira) and also includes "Wild Wasteland," a never before released bonus studio track. The re-issue will also include new artwork designed by Mike D from Darkicon Design (Killswitch Engage).
Defiler recently signed a new record deal (with a new label home) and additional details are set to be announced shortly. The band is currently hard at work on the follow up to "Pangaea" with an expected first quarter 2012 release.
