The Defiled

The Defiled make it into the Guinness book of records

Now this is what you call Rock N Roll.

One year on from their performance on a floating Iceberg in the Greenland Sea, UK metallers THE DEFILED have been rewarded by having their risky stunt immortalised in the 2016 edition of the GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS.

“Breaking Records certainly makes an interesting change from making them”says Keyboard player The AvD“As a child this was a book of wonder and excitement, so it’s pretty mindblowing to open this book and see myself and my bandmates looking back at me.“

The four piece braved arctic conditions and fast flowing ice to perform a 30 minute set on an Iceberg – the first band to ever do so – as part of Jagermeister’s Ice Cold Gig series.

A video documentary of the Defiled expedition can be seen here:

The band also filmed a music video while in Greenland for the song ‘Five Minutes’

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
