Chris Broderick’s powerhouse new band, Act of Defiance, has a highly anticipated debut album called Birth and the Burial slated to come out Aug. 21.
In advance of the release, the metallers have dropped a video for single “Throwback.”
The heavy song comes at you fast and furious, as Broderick leads the way with an aggressive riff on his Jackson Custom Shop guitar.
“I never expected ’Throwback’ to be the first release off the CD, as it’s not commercial, doesn’t follow a typical verse-chorus-solo scheme, and is almost six minutes long,” Broderick stated. “However, when you hear the fire, emotion and brutality of the song, it becomes very clear that it was a contender to show people what Act of Defiance is really about.”
Act of Defiance consists of Broderick’s former Megadeth bandmate Shawn Drover (drums), ex-Scar the Martyr singer Henry Derek Bonner and Shadows Fall bassist Matt Bachand.
