Danish modern prog metallers DEFECTO
signs with POWER PROG


Details of the upcoming debut album announced


POWER PROG has the honor to announce the signing of one of the greatest hopes when it comes to Scandinavian progressive metal, stunning Danish quartet DEFECTO. The first common goal is the release of their first longplayer “Excluded” at April 29, 2016 as Audio-CD, download card, as digital download and as stream exclusively via POWER PROG’s direct sales channels. The official worldwide release follows at May 20, 2016




DEFECTO is an aspiring Danish metal band hailing from the outskirts of Copenhagen. They have written on their flags to create powerful and sophisticated progressive music without sacrificing a unique songwriting or melodies, having band members that each play with superior musical and technical abilities. It’s the mixture: DEFECTO believes in hard-hitting songs combined with earwig-like catchy melodies while still paving the way for some seriously melting solos, exalted instrumental performances, symphonic elements, growling vocal use and an expressive personality.

DEFECTO’s self-titled debut-EP, released in 2012, showcased a more than ambitious band and was highly acclaimed by both Danish and international reviewers alike. For this first impressive piece of work the band was rewarded with the “Best Metal Act 2012” honoring in Copenhagen by Underground Music Awards. A first clear exclamation mark was set!

After years of hard work and the refinement of the whole, DEFECTO are here as a real force to present their first longplayer “Excluded” to the world. They deliever us a sensational and excited progressive power metal masterstroke which has something to offer for all lovers of modern and sophisticated heavy music. Mastermind and overall musical prodidy Nicklas Sonne proves his skills as a highly professional and extraordinarily talented sound engineer and is responsible for the excellent mixing and mastering. All in all … The overall package DEFECTO is an almost frightening impressive one!

Best choice for fans of Dream Theater, Trivium, Symphony X, Pagan’s Mind, Nighwish and all other progressive symphonic power metal fans looking for their new favorite band.

And for your info: DEFECTO is set for the Copenhell Festival 2016 at June 23 in Copenhagen and will share the stage with sizes like Black Sabbath, Scorpions, Megadeth, Alice Cooper, King Diamond, Blind Guradian, Amon Amarth, Rival Sons, Trivium, Epica, Clawfinger, Sixx:A.M. and lots of others … a real must-attend event! http://copenhell.dk
