THE DEFILED: NEW ALBUM ARTWORK REVEALED

THE DEFILED: NEW ALBUM ARTWORK REVEALED - 2013-05-24

2013-05-24 - London modern metal mob THE DEFILED have revealed the artwork to their upcoming album Daggers - due out in North America this summer - on their official Facebook page. Album artwork was designed and executed by Scott Chalmers, the band's long time photographer.




The AvD, who handles programming, keyboards, and backing vocals for THE DEFILED, explains the concept behind the album cover:
“Daggers were made for only one thing - killing or betraying your fellow man. And one stab is almost always never enough…

“The flowers symbolize goodwill with the prospect of a co-operative future. The dagger behind the back symbolizes the ulterior motives, the insincerity and the impending disappointment that surrounds us all. This theme runs through all the tracks on the album.

“The concept was born out of a scene we wanted in our new video for ‘Unspoken.’ We wanted the two main characters shaking hands with daggers behind their backs. We were originally going to call the track ‘Daggers’ but then opted to go for ‘Unspoken.’ The song is about the politics of life and it seemed more fitting. We also didn't want to limit the word ‘Daggers’ to only one song on the album, as it is the overall feeling we wanted for the full project.”

Snippets from the video for “Unspoken” can be seen here: http://youtu.be/FWa975o7SLo

Daggers is the second studio album by THE DEFILED and their debut release on Nuclear Blast Entertainment. 2011’s Grave Times secured the band's status as one of the U.K.’s most successful unsigned metal acts with sold out tours, prestigious slots at metal’s biggest music festivals, and a Golden God Award.
