Act of Defiance

With Act of Defiance we’re adding a metal super group to this year’s bill. Axeman Chris Broderick and skinsman Shawn Drover quit Megadeth on the same day and went on to form a new band with vocalist Henry Derek and former Shadows Fall guitarist Matt Bachand on bass. Their first outing, ‘Birth and the Burial’ (2015), offers a generous dose of thrash with melodic death metal and some metalcore influences mixed in. In fact, a few of the tracks would fit right in on a Megadeth record. Henry Derek’s (ex-Scar the Martyr) clean singing and growls sound convincing and suit the music perfectly.
