DEFENDER: Two Songs Available For Streaming

March 18, 2011

DEFENDER, the newly formed Los Angeles-based heavy metal band featuring founding CELLADOR members Bill Hudson (guitar) and Mikey Gremio (vocals) alongside ZODIAC MINDWARP/ex-REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE drummer Bruno Agra, has made two songs — "Out Of Time" and "Blackened Heart" — available for streaming in the YouTube clips below.

Drawing influences from classics like IRON MAIDEN, PANTERA, HELLOWEEN, SKID ROW and METALLICA all the way to the modern hard rock made by SHINEDOWN, AVENGED SEVENFOLD and THREE DAYS GRACE, as well as the aggressiveness of SLAYER, FEAR FACTORY and MESHUGGAH, DEFENDER intends to create catchy songs with great, hooky melodies, intricate and technical guitar work and heavy, and precise riffing. Lyrically, they touch both real and fictional subjects, such as a futuristic third world war or the need to live here and now before it's too late.

DEFENDER is currently in pre-production for its debut album and will release an EP entitled "WWIII" this year.


Mikey Gremio: Lead Vocals
Bill Hudson: Lead, Rhythm Guitars, Vocals
Bruno Angra: Drums, Vocals
John Killall: Lead & Rhythm Guitars, Vocals
