Here is a deadly surprise out of Japan! More readily associated with HC-oriented extreme bands, Defiled is an all-out death metal attack that adamantly refuses to let up and conform to Japan's more traditional offerings. Try to imagine the vocals of former Sinister man Mike with that bands' bite, added to the guttural brutality of Incantation and patterns from early Possessed - especially the choppy drumming - and what you get is Defiled. This is no half-assed attempt at death metal. The quartet clearly knows and understands death metal. Frighteningly good, the wildness of Defiled makes them a very good proposition for fans of the above-described sound, and undoubtedly a target for lesser wimps. - Ali "The Metallian"
