Defueld is a five-piece band from Stockholm, Sweden. The music can be
described as a mix of contemporary metal and heavy rock with an
emphasis on strong melodies, vocal harmonies and heavy grooves. The
lyrics of Defueld revolve around dark social issues that we all
experience in our everyday life and demand the listener’s attention.
In January of 2008 Defueld entered the studio to record their self titled debut album.
One of the singles, ‘Forever’, is released on the compilation album
‘Mama Trash Family Artists Vol2’ by the American based promoter Mama
Trash (aka Joanne Sheldon) along with artists like ‘Maryslim’,
‘Mortiis’, etc. The compilation album was released on September 30th
Defueld’s debut album contains eleven songs with everything from
complete “mayhem” death metal riffs to heavy metal grooves and soft
piano ballads. Simply put something for everyone. The album was
recorded, mixed and produced by the band themselves in singer
Christoffer Wetterström’s professional recording studio ‘Music
Solutions Sweden’ in the southern suburbs of Stockholm, Sweden and
mastered at the legendary ‘Cutting Room’.
The first single, “Spawn”, is already being played on Swedish radio
P3-Rockster and it is to be featured on a compilation CD released by
one of the largest metal magazines of Sweden “Close-Up”.
In November of 2007 they went on tour in Senegal, Africa, performing
for more than 6000 people in the suburbs of Dakar. Invited by African
promoters, Defueld also held workshops and clinics with famous African
artists resulting in a crossbreed of Metal and Senegalese Hip-hop,
which came to be known as “Hip-Rock”. The event got huge attention and
was embraced by the national media, calling Defueld’s visit one of the
biggest things to happen in the Senegalese music scene in the last 20
years. Additional shows were also performed in front of especially
invited press, VIP’s and embassy personnel, all to the massive cheering
of the press and crowd.
