While at times the band’s influences are clearly on display (such as the Marilyn Manson-esque ‘Porcelain’), for the most part Daggers is very much the sound of a band who have spent time forming their own identity unlike some of the metal plagiarism doing the rounds at the moment *cough* Davey Suicide *cough*. The Defiled’s use of electronics manages to recall 90s industrial music while still being subtle and contemporary, without (thankfully) any gimmicky sub drops or dubstep wobs present. The jittery interplay between blips and riffs on ‘Unspoken’ is superb, while with ballad ‘Five Minutes’ The Defiled havenailed what Linkin Park have been trying (and failing) to do on their past few albums, by writing a memorable and electronic-infused slow burner.

You really ought to buy a copy of Daggers, the new studio album from The Defiled.
