Norwegian progressive death metal band Defect Designer have posted their latest video ‘Crusaders’ in support of their second full length ‘Ageing Accelerator’ due out on July 13th via Sleaszy Rider Records.
“Crusaders is the most straightforward song from our upcoming album Ageing Accelerator. It is a combination of very old riffs we haven’t used before with fresh tunes. We wanted to make something close to grindcore, that is easy to play live. It is about wars and invasions that continue now.” comments vocalist, guitarist Dmitry Sukhinin.

Born out the darkness of Siberia and re-located on the shores of Oslo, Norway in 2012, Defect Designer returns in 2015 with their new album ‘Ageing Accelerator’ features a brutal recording line up that includes drummer Flo Mounier (Cryptopsy), guitarist Stelios Mavromitis (SepticFlesh live guitarist), Martin Storm-Olsen (ex-Trollfest) on guitars and clean vocals, Christos Antoniou (SepticFlesh) for sampling and orchestration along with Dmitry Sukhinin on vocals, bass and guitars.
“After the first lineup dissolved I was so desperate that I wrote to few people and got the recording lineup.” explains Dmitry Sukhinin. “SepticFlesh’s Seth proposed his brother Christos to help with orchestration, Christos proposed SepticFlesh’s live guitar player Stelios to do guitars, Flo from Cryptopsy did the drums, cause actually he was my main drum inspiration. I did bass, and during the recording I met Martin who was in Trollfest before, he did clean vocals and some solos along with my solos. Then the real line up started to build up and we have Anders from Blood Red Throne. As for me, I also play in Oslo jazz death metal Diskord.”
