Riding high off their 2012 release, Perpetuation, Montreal’s technical death metal shredders Derelict are pleased to announce that they have been nominated for a Canadian Independent Music Award in the category of ‘Best Metal Artist Or Group Of The Year’.
“We are surprised and extremely flattered by this nomination,” comments vocalist Eric Burnet. “We put everything we had into Perpetuation with the goal of making a streamlined and crushing metal statement, and it feels great to see that it’s being so well-received. It also goes without saying that seeing our name beside the other nominees is simply an honor. Devin Townsend in particular has influenced us greatly.”
