NEWS: Defiant

Time Isn't Healing
release date: November 25th, 2016
label: Ferrrum Records
Expect real singing. Expect songs to remember. The singing voice of Defiant (Ukraine) is a very appealing tone; strong, it projects well, it is solid and also filled with a great amount of melody. This type of voice has a big potential for appeal amongst the metal public because it sounds real, and it is good quality on the recording. Defiant's style is heavy metal with both classic and current elements in the sound. Most importantly, they have well-written songs. This album is a keeper 100%.
OFFICIAL: Since its formation in 2008, DEFIANT's mission has been to enthrall fans with a brand of power metal that is as muscular as it is melodic. DEFIANT went on to release no less than three EPs and 2012's full-length debut Masquerade, collectively laying the groundwork for what can only be called its magnum opus: Time Isn't Healing. The crunching riffs and soaring leads of guitarist Andrey Turkovsky blend seamlessly with the epic, often breathtaking keyboard work of Victoria Terzieva, while Stanislav Proshkin's gritty yet tuneful vocals offer a captivating stamp of distinction. The clanging bass lines of Oleg Yakovlev and airtight drumming of Eugeniy Smolin form a robust rhythmic foundation. But it's the quality and consistency of the songwriting that is perhaps most impressive about the new album. Whether the up-tempo power metal pummel of "Milestones of Time" or the mid-tempo elegance of "According to the Acts," Time Isn't Healing sinks the hooks in deep and keep the listener in a state of rapt attention from beginning to end.
