The defiled 1888 guitar cover

1888 is the debut EP by English metal band The Defiled. It was released on 26 October 2009 through the IATDE Records. The band's first music video for the song "The Resurrectionists" was released a couple of months after the EP was released. This same song was re-recorded for their debut album, Grave Times, which was released on 14 February 2011. The band toured with the J├Ągermeister Stage and headlined this stage during the 2009 Sonisphere Festival.


Critical reception

"The Defiled's meld of industrial, Marilyn Manson-esque swagger with a more serrated hardcore edge has seen them become lauded as one of the UK's most aggressively vital new live bands," according to Kerrang!'s October 2009 review. "Dealing exclusively in a vicious-chorus/big-verse songwriting format, the short running time is more blast than whimper... What you discover is a band with more witty lyrical nous and thematic depth than their energetic stage presence would suggest," wrote reviewer Sam Law, giving it 4 K's out of 5.
