DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present CRITICAL DEFIANCE’s cult debut album, Misconception, on vinyl LP format.  

Hailing from the cult-metal hotbed of Chile, for over a decade now, CRITICAL DEFIANCE have been steadfast purveyors of authentically late ‘80s-style THRASH. With a couple demos and a split preceding it, the band truly put themselves on the metal map with their 2019 debut album, Misconception. 

Absolutely ripping right from the start, Misconception announced in a manner most Dark Angel “we have arrived!” Encompassing eight songs in 40 minutes, CRITICAL DEFIANCE’s debut album possessed a veritable treasure trove of ideas – or, rather, riffs and rhythms – too countless for such a seemingly compact runtime. Indeed, the Chileans whip forth a fury whereby everything races with palpitating intensity and the extreme aggression’s well into the red, but due to their jawdropping chops and a mad-scientist style of songwriting, everything across Misconception flows with a paradoxical sort of grace. Granted, such was the way of such legends as Sadus, Demolition Hammer, Morbid Saint, and indeed Dark Angel, and CRITICAL DEFIANCE duly honored this rich legacy with their own brand of actually-catchy tech-thrash…and they were just getting started! 

Hear where one of modern vintage thrash’s best success stories started with this well-earned vinyl release of CRITICAL DEFIANCE’s Misconception!
