The Defaced Post New Songs Online

THE DEFACED, the Swedish band featuring DARKANE/TERROR 2000 guitarist Klas Ideberg, has uploaded three new songs on its MySpace page. Check out the full-length version of "Blood of Emeralds" and snippets of "Remaining Eternal" and "Flame to Life" at this location. Also available are photos from a shoot that took place a couple of weeks ago.

"Blood of Emeralds", "Remaining Eternal" and "Flame to Life" come off THE DEFACED's third album, "Anomaly", due later in the year via an as-yet-undetermined label.

Regarding the new album's direction, the group previously wrote, "To summarize, I guess you could say that we didn't want to care about what others would say when they heard the final product. We wrote songs as they came along with all the ingredients you would expect from THE DEFACED. 'Anomaly' is more diverse, more dynamic… has more grooves, more energy, more melodies, more aggression…just more of everything. A natural progression from 'Karma in Black'. 'Anomaly' has a range from mellow to fast pounding songs. But hey: Fear not, it's all THE DEFACED." More...

The Defaced are 'Almost Done' Recording New Album

THE DEFACED, the Swedish band featuring DARKANE/TERROR 2000 guitarist Klas Ideberg, have posted the following message on their official web site:

"We're almost done recording the vocals for the next THE DEFACED album. Jens [Broman; CONSTRUCDEAD, HATELIGHT] has been tracking vocals now for three weekends and he's really been working his ass off. He’s been pushing limits and Jesus Christmas, it sounds awesome! He brings so many new textures to the songs and his voice absolutely fits the songs like a prostitute in a brothel.

"The final vocal parts will be tracked this weekend. After that we'll schedule the mixing of the album as soon as possible, though it may take a little while longer than we expected. This is due to the fact that Klas will handle the mixing duties (like he recently did on DARKANE's and TERROR 2000's latest efforts) and since he's just become a first-time father, we'll schedule the mixing to fit his agenda. The main thing is that the result is going to be top notch. We don't want to rush anything (even though it's about fucking time we get this album out), we simply want to give you one hell of an album."

THE DEFACED's most recent album, "Karma In Black", was issued in 2003 via Italy's Scarlet Records.

Darkane are pleased to announce they have been confirmed to play the infamous Aalborg Metal Festival in Aalborg, DK this year. The festival, which will take place on November 6, will also feature Scarve, Zyklon, Illdisposed and The Defaced among others.

In studio news, the whole band has been spending their time in the studio the past weekend, working on the bass and drum sound. The whole band, except for Klas, who is still in India on an intership. He is expected to be joining the rest of the band in the studio as soon as he returns home next week.

The actual recording process is scheduled to start Tuesday but the band have been working in the studio the last couple of days to start all the preparations. Also, Peter is being extremely careful with his wrists which also takes its time.

According to Peter himself though, the bass drum sound is already incredible (of course!) =) and his wrists are in very good condition.
