"Await hell and heaven to open the gates
Bury the masses in a common grave
Regardless of ranks and positions
In the eye of death, we are all the same"

With the upcoming release of »In The Eye Of Death We Are All The Same«, DEFOCUS enter the metal scene with a record full of heavy, low-tuned songs. A deep-dive into the world we are living in and how we are all affected by it,  »In The Eye Of Death We Are All The Same« is a punishing album deserving of your attention.

Exceedingly low guitars and driving rhythms are paired with dark and ambient melodies, to create a melancholic atmosphere for their thrilling sound, offering a taste of what’s to come from the promising four-piece.

With the COVID-19 pandemic in full swing DEFOCUS recorded the tracks remotely from home, before they were mixed and mastered by Christoph Wieczorek (ANNISOKAY) from Sawdust Recordings, who truly captured their crushing and impulsive take on modern metalcore.

3. Immerse Me
Common Grave
5. Tides (Interlude)

Founded by Simon MüllerJeffrey UhlmannJonas Mahler and Marcel “Bambam” Heberling, the Aalen quartet spent time making music together before coming to light in early 2019, instantly proving their worth in the scene with their energetic live shows.

Faced with the global COVID-19 pandemic, DEFOCUS got to work on their material through countless extensive late-night online sessions, allowing every member to contribute their individual ideas and emotions.
“I remember that when we started to write all this material, everyone was on the same page from the beginning and we knew exactly which direction we wanted to go, but at the same time everyone took inspiration from different sources. Seeing all this material finally come together in the end makes me super happy, because the writing process and everything around it really defined who we are as a band and resulted in a pure milestone everyone in the band can 100% identify with.” – Jeffrey
