The Defiled: Daggers

On the threshold of opening the main stage at this weekend’s SONISPHERE festival in the U.K. (headlined by The Prodigy, Iron Maiden, and Metallica), London metallers THE DEFILED have released the video for their latest single “Infected” on the Revolver magazine website here.

Featuring stunning 3D animation from the London-based Smoke And Guns Productions, the video tells a twisted tale of epidemic infection while the band rocks out in a fire & stripper-filled morgue.

“We’ve done performance videos, we’ve tried our hand at acting, and our last video did not even have us in it, so we wanted to try something different this time,” states THE DEFILED’s frontman Stitch D. “With animation, anything is possible. If we want a helicopter, no problem. If we want a massive machine gun mounted on a jeep, ditto. It might be nice to have real strippers and pyro but for now, this does the job nicely.”

“Fuck yeah!” echoes The AvD. “Suicide, murder, disease, fire, helicopters, machine guns, strippers and legos – this has got it all.”

The video is also the last to feature guitarist Aaron Curse, who, as the clip shows, is sadly no longer of this world. “We are sad to see him go, but you can’t fuck with fate,” says The Avd. “He is probably down there in hell right now, creeping out Satan and his minions. He will be missed.”

Daggers was recorded at Audio Hammer Studios in Florida with producer/engineer Jason Suecof (Death Angel, Job For A Cowboy, Atheist, Charred Walls Of The Damned) and can be ordered from the Nuclear Blast USA Webshop.
