2008 into 2009: The Defiled

London metallers The Defiled have been trawling the circuits for a while now, piling up legions of fans in the process. We had a little chat with bassist, Drex Exel about what and WHO he wants for Christmas…

What was your highlight of 2008?
Kiss at Download. Any show that has a 50-year-old man flying across the audience on a zip-wire is good in my books!

What’s the worst thing that happened to you in 2008?
Breaking my bass in half whilst supporting Malefice at The Underworld – rest in pieces Frank.

Who in 2008 deserves a good kicking?
The cunt that stole my iPod and the last of my booze out of my tent on the last night at Reading Festival.

Who had the best comeback: Metallica, AC/DC, or Guns N’ Roses?
AC/DC all the way, baby!

What are you most looking forward to in 2009?
Getting our CD out into the shops so everyone can get their grubby little hands on it.

What band should everyone find out about in 2009?
Gentlemans Pistols… and The Defiled.

What do you want for Christmas?

Who do you want to get under the mistletoe?
The singer from In This Moment… filth!

Where will you be on New Year’s Eve?
No idea. Wherever it is though I’m pretty sure I won’t remember being there.


The Defiled will tour the UK with Romeo Must Die in February 2009.


AC/DC 20
G’n’R 5
‘Tallica 25
