Germany's metalcore quartet DEFOCUS have released their third single / video 'Diverge' feat. Tom Brümmer (THE OKLAHOMA KID) taken from their upcoming debut »In The Eye Of Death We Are All The Same«, due for release on 2nd July via Arising Empire!
»In The Eye Of Death We Are All The Same« will be available as exclusive pre-order bundles at Impericon.
„‘Diverge’ was one of the first songs we wrote for Defocus. It was crucial for the sound of our debut album ‘In The Eye Of Death We Are All The Same’. ‘Diverge’ combines the best aspects of our first two singles: the heaviness and brutality of ‘Common Grave’ and the atmosphere of ‘Thought Of A Vision’. The feature of The Oklahoma Kid´s vocalist Tom Brümmer turns ‘Diverge’ into a song that stays right in your head and encourages you to sing along.“ - Bambam (bass)
"Cause I would carry you through the darkest day of mine
To prove how hard I’ve tried"
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.
