53 Degrees Friday February 21
£6: Support: Black Tongue and Heritage
Combining huge anthemic riffs, disgusting breaks and neck-snapping groove, Martyr Defiled will sink their teeth into your ear and blast it into the middle of next year.
Their well-received album In Shadows follows five years of notorious struggle, touring with giants like The Black Dahlia Murder, Despised Icon and All Shall Perish.
Picked up by Siege Of Amida Records to release their debut album Collusion, Martyr Defiled have rolled through the UK and continental Europe like a steamroller on steroids, and have no intention of stopping any time soon.
A spokesman for the band said: “Martyr Defiled have earned their right to smash through every venue put in front of them, and they can count on the ferocious support of a loyal army of fans.”
Crushingly heavy, ear-splittingly beefy, and uncomfortably raw Black Tongue support, alongside melodic hardcore act Heritage.
