Massachusetts-based DEFEATER has been hailed as ï¿½a
new artistic peak for hardcore by Punknews.org for
their story-like approach to honest and intensely heavy
music. With a new 7"EP due out November 17th,
2009, titled Lost Ground, DEFEATER is armed with six
new songs about a man's journey from enlisting in the
military to post-war life. With the narrative focusing on
the prophet from the song "Prophet In Plain Clothes"
from their critically acclaimed debut, Travels, this new
story is set to a volatile soundtrack of hardcore fury,
punk melody, and metal technicality while the band
explores some cleaner and bigger-sounding dynamics.
Lost Ground is a musically precise and genre-bending
release from this forward-thinking band.
