- What inspired the name of the band and what influenced your sound and style?
The name Defiatory derives from the word Defiant, a good pointer to the music and our stand regarding the ways of the world. When the band was formed with the intent to play thrash metal, we knew that we wanted to go to the roots of the Bay Area scene and add our own touch. The end result is a nice mixture of the giants of that old era of thrash and the various influences we all have picked up from other genres and bands along the way.
- How did you approach writing and recording for this album?
Main difference this time around was that we were all involved in the creation of everything, where as on the first album it was more of a single line process. This time everyone brought their ideas and riffs to the mix and we merged it into the end result.
- What themes are explored on this album?
War, death and various aspects of Hell.
- How do you approach live performances?
Same as most bands. We intensify rehearsals before an upcoming gig and then enter the stage with the intent to leave a crater where the gig took place.
- What plans do you have for the future?
We’re aiming to play more live shows to keep promoting this album until we feel ready to lock ourselves down in the studio for album number three. In the end it’s the road that calls strongest, so the more we can play live, the more energy we will build up for the next recording.
