Exclusive: Former MEGADETH Members BRODERICK And DROVER Join Forces With Ex-SCAR THE MARTYR Singer

...et ça va s'appeler ACT OF DEFIANCE.



ACT OF DEFIANCE, the new band featuring former MEGADETH members Shawn Drover (drums) and Chris Broderick (guitar), alongside ex-SCAR THE MARTYR singer Henry Derek Bonner, and SHADOWS FALL's Matt Bachand (bass), has inked a deal with Metal Blade Records.

ACT OF DEFIANCE is currently recording its debut offering with world-renowned producer Chris "Zeuss" Harris (ROB ZOMBIE, HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL) for a summer release.

A rough demo snippet of the ACT OF DEFIANCE track "Throwback" can be streamed below.

Says Broderick: "I am so excited to finally be able to announce ACT OF DEFIANCE to the world.

"Shawn just finished tracking drums the first week of February and his performance and tones are simply incredible. I have started tracking rhythms and leads, as well as working with Henry to get final vocal takes while Matt will record bass at his studio. The final mix and mastering will also be handled by Zeuss."

He continues: "I am also very honored to announce that we have signed with Metal Blade Records. There is not a better label to be on than one where the employees (and owner) still understand and listen to METAL! They have shown a loyalty, backing and drive for their artists that few other labels have.

"As for our music, I am really enjoying the ability to create what is a killer mix of thrash and modern metal. It has a unique combination ranging from thrash to classical influences. I am very proud of what we have written and hope that you all dig it."

Adds Drover: "Having our new band, ACT OF DEFIANCE, sign with Metal Blade Records is a real thrill for me.

"I started my musical career with Brian Slagel and the Metal Blade family many years ago, so to come full circle at this point is a real musical homecoming of sorts. I couldn't be happier about that.

"What thrills me the most is the fact that myself, Chris Broderick, Henry Derek and Matt Bachand all have in common is that from the get-go, we wanted this band to be 100% PURE heavy metal! No compromises, no ulterior motives other than making the best HEAVY METAL music we can. Metal Blade shares this vision, which really puts us all on the same page, musically."

States Bachand: "I couldn't be more excited to begin this new adventure with ACT OF DEFIANCE. The positive energy that has collected between the four of us in such a little amount of time has been nothing short of incredible. Writing bass lines is something new for me as well, and I am looking forward to the challenge. All the songs are coming together great and I can't wait for the world to hear this."

Comments Henry: "I'm extremely honored and excited to be a part of ACT OF DEFIANCE. Everyone has been super cool and supportive, which is always a huge plus. I know this is going to be an awesome musical experience and the fact that I'm embarking on this journey with good people means everything."

Metal Blade founder Brian Slagel says: "I am super excited to welcome ACT OF DEFIANCE to the Metal Blade family. I have known Chris and Shawn over the years and really admired their work. I am honored to be able to work with these two legendary musicians. Really excited to work with all the guys on this exciting new band!"

During an interview with SiriusXM's Jose Mangin on the December 17, 2014 edition of Liquid Metal's "666-LIVE" call-in show, Broderick stated about how his new group came together: "Through talking with Shawn Drover, we've talked about how we had all this material that was never gonna get released, all these killer, heavy riffs that we had written and stuff, and so we just decided, 'Hey, why don't we put the stuff out? Why don't we form a band and get out these killer riffs, just to see what people think?' So we formed a band, we're working with a killer singer — he's awesome — and we've got record labels that have made some good offers on the table, and we're really excited about where that's gonna go."

Regarding whether the musical ideas that are being used in the new band are things that were originally presented to MEGADETH and were turned down or if they are brand new compositions, Chris said: "Some of them were presented, but then some of them also… I'd be, like, 'Oh, this isn't appropriate for MEGADETH, their sound.' I have a tendency to write very complex stuff, and so I've gotta watch it when I write and submit for MEGADETH under that kind of… I wanna make sure it's not too complex and too crazy and all over the place. So those are the things that I would have held back."

Bonner released a statement in April 2014 claiming that he was leaving SCAR THE MARTYR "due to personal differences, artistic direction and a slew of business decisions that I cannot simply ignore." He added: "I've given it a year of my life and now it's time to move on. I will continue making music in many forms."





Le chant est un peu plus couillu que celui de Mustaine, c'est sur.

Mon avis sur le teaser, c'est que CDLM.
Enfin non, pour de la troisième division plate et sans âme, ça le fait.
J'attends l'album pour juger. Là, ça ne compte pas vraiment (tant mieux pour eux).

SHAWN DROVER a écrit:So, I think it’s time for an update, so let’s go!!!!!!

At this point of the recording process for the new Act Of Defiance (or AOD) record, Drums, Rhythm Guitars, Bass are finished – Guitar solos, clean guitars are pretty close to being completed, and Henry is around 70% done with vocals. The guys still have a few weeks to wrap things up as it were, before we begin to mix the record with Chris “Zeuss” Harris, to which I personally cannot wait. The finish line is not far away in terms of the recording process and all of us cannot wait for you to hear what we have been working on for the past several months.

People often ask me what does the new music sound like??? I loathe putting music in a nice tiny “Heavy Metal sub-genre” box, so I won’t. Like I have said from the get-go, this music is 100% pure Heavy Metal made purely for musical purposes. We are creating music that we totally love with hopes that others will dig it as well, which at the end of the day is all you really can try to do, IMO. Elements of thrash, progressive, traditional, dynamic – it’s all there and then some.

We have been working with Travis Smith (Opeth, Nevermore, Overkill, Sanctuary, etc.) for our artwork, to which he has really come up with some twisted, bizarre, awesome concepts (right up my alley) which has also been very exciting – we cannot wait to see the finished ideas, to which he will provide in due time. We will keep you informed on things as they happen, rest assured, until then……………

Zéro personnalité mais ça tabasse bien. Et c'est fou à quel point leur braillou sonne comme Chuck Billy quand il part en chant clair.

Au passage, ça m'étonne pas que Mustaine ait refusé un morceau pareil. C'est bien trop bourrin pour ce qu'il fait aujourd'hui.

J'aime bien, ça envoie vraiment sans essayer de sonner faussement moderne (j'avais peur que ça sonne un peu "Scar the Slipknot"). C'est du bon gros thrash violent, quoi.
Et ça sort le 21 aout chez Metal Blade.

Nouveau morceau, pas mal du tout : Refrain and Re-Fracture

Drover tells us, “‘Refrain and Re-Fracture’ is a great example of using musical dynamics in a heavy metal song. All of us in Act of Defiance have always been fans of cool acoustic/classical song intros before the metal assault kicks in, so when Chris presented this song to me I immediately loved the tune.”

He adds, “Henry Derek really did a great job here as well by using his range a bit more as a singer, going from brutal singing to injecting some more melodic phrasing within the song as well, but still sounding very powerful. ‘Refrain and Re-Fracture’ is just another great example of showing that Birth and the Burial is certainly not a one dimensional heavy metal record.”

Broderick further adds: “‘Refrain and Re-Fracture’s creation started off with the classical guitar of all instruments. (laughs) I wanted a moody beginning into a heavy verse with each instrument entering and slowly building the tension until the transition to the verse. At this point a tempo change was needed for something more fast paced and aggressive with heavy vocals. Henry definitely delivered on that!!!

He adds, “For the chorus I definitely was looking for as much melody as possible but still heavy in nature. The bridge to the solo and the solo has a much more modern feel to them utilizing polyrhythms to create groove and an open canvas for my solo. As for the solo, hell I just hope people like what I did. (laughs) Overall I feel this song does a great job of showing how diverse Act of Defiance can be while still staying firmly rooted in metal!”

Avec la touche du rouquin ça aurait donné un sacré truc pour "Throwback" , même en ralentissant un poil.
Pour le deuxième par contre un peu plus de baboules (death) et ça pourrait le faire sinon...punaise on s'endort...
