Derelict Update, Oct 8 2011

Greetings everyone! Max here and I’m very excited to write the first of what will now be a regular Derelict blog. We will be talking to you guys about a whole bunch of things like lyrics, the songwriting process, different thoughts we have about music, and possibly peanut butter sandwiches.

For the moment I think you guys deserve a full update on the band and what we’re up to. Many things have happened since the Northern Shores tour. Some good things as well as some less good things but all in all we are very happy with the direction the band is taking and can’t wait for you all to hear it. As of right now our new album is fully written and arranged. We have 12 tracks for close to 45 minutes of brutal, yet melodic, death metal on the way. Our new guitarist Collin McGee has been a welcome addition to our ranks and his leads will contribute to taking our music to a new level of musicianship.

We recently hosted a private party here in Montreal where we premiered a bunch of our new tracks to some of the local Metal Militia and had a great time. The feedback was very positive so we’re all very excited about that. Besides that we were extremely pleased to be offered a slot opening for Decapitated, Decrepit Birth, Fleshgod Apocalypse and Rings of Saturn at Foufounes Electriques on Wednesday, October 26th (Event: This will be a great gig for us and hopefully those of you in the area will come out to see it!

That same weekend we are heading out to Ontario for the first time since the spring. We will be playing Shredfest 2011 in Brantford at Club NV alongside our good friends in Endast, Misguided Aggression, Exes for Eyes, Immersed as well as Besegra (Event: This should be one hell of a show and it’s for charity, so once again, if you’re in the area, you should definitely not miss this great lineup. We are thereafter heading to North Bay (venue and lineup TBA) to play another show the next day. It should be a nice and brutal weekend.

On the album front, ¾ of the rhythm guitar tracks are recorded at this point. Guitars should be done by November. The bass is being recorded in Switzerland by our good friend Sebastien Pittet who also mans the bass duties in Augury. Drums and vocals will be recorded by Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy) in November and December.

Lastly, we have a new merch store and are progressively adding new stuff to it, including a new shirt design themed after our song, ‘Expiry’. Click here:

Thanks for reading guys. Like I said previously, stay tuned because there’s going to be a lot of content on this new blog of ours. We hope you’ll dig it.

See you in the pit.

Hailing from Montreal, Derelict mixes the brutal and technical elements of the Quebec metal scene with listenable structures and melody, resulting in an unforgiving yet accessible package. The band’s trademark sound has led to comparisons with the likes of Death, Strapping Young Lad, Obscura and The Black Dahlia Murder.

In 2009, the release of the Unspoken Words album through Year of the Sun Records marked a kickoff point for Derelict with several national tours, increased media exposure, and greater critical acclaim. The band’s 2012 followup release, Perpetuation was once again mixed and mastered by Chris Donaldson of Cryptopsy and contains 12 furious tracks that showcase an upgraded version of what Derelict fans have come to love. This new crushing-yet-memorable opus led the band to be nominated for “Metal Artist Of The Year” at the 2013 Canadian Independent Music Awards alongside Devin Townsend and Bison BC, as well as to secure international distribution through Maple Metal Records.

“This album was long in the making, and saw the band through some intense challenges,” says vocalist Eric Burnet. “We survived our trials and came back much stronger. Perpetuation is streamlined Derelict: it has fast tempos and brutal riffs, but lots of melody and catchiness too. We all pushed ourselves to expand what we could do with our instruments, and we got Sébastien Pittet (ex-Augury) playing fretless bass on it too!”

With the help of constant touring within Canada, and support for international acts such as Decapitated, Cryptopsy, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Decrepit Birth, Job For A Cowboy, Whitechapel, The Agonist, Revocation and Threat Signal, the band continues to spread its socio-political message of self-empowerment, freedom and peace to a mass of receptive fans.
