Hailing from Montreal, Derelict mixes the brutal and technical elements of the Quebec metal scene with listenable structures and melody, resulting in an unforgiving yet accessible package. The band’s trademark sound has led to comparisons with the likes of Death, Strapping Young Lad, and The Black Dahlia Murder.

In 2009, the release of the Unspoken Words album through Year of the Sun Records marked a kickoff point for Derelict with several national tours, increased media exposure, and greater critical acclaim. The band’s 2011 EP served to preview new material, cement a growing fan base, and set the stage for a new full-length album in 2012: Perpetuation. Mixed and mastered by Chris Donaldson of Cryptopsy, this release contains 12 furious tracks that put forth an upgraded version of what Derelict fans have come to love.

“This album has been long in the making, and saw the band through some intense challenges,” says vocalist Eric Burnet. “We survived our trials and came back much stronger. Perpetuation is streamlined Derelict: it has fast tempos and brutal riffs, but lots of melody and catchiness too. We all pushed ourselves to expand what we could do with our instruments, and we got Sébastien Pittet from Augury playing fretless bass on this thing too!”

With the help of constant touring within Canada, and support for international acts such as Decapitated, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Decrepit Birth, Job For A Cowboy, Whitechapel, Blackguard, The Agonist, Revocation and Threat Signal, the band is expanding its fan base exponentially and is making itself known as a force to be reckoned with.
