Alpha WolfHunters conducted an interview with DEF-CON-ONE, the British metal band featuring former VENOM and MPIRE OF EVIL drummer Antony “Antton” Lant (brother of VENOM frontman Conrad “Cronos” Lant), at this year’s Hammerfest, which was held March 13-16 at Hafan y Mor Holiday Park, Caernarfonshire and Merionethshire, Wales. You can now watch the chat below.
DEF-CON-ONE‘s debut album, “Warface”, was released last June via Scarlet Records.
With influences covering a wide range of musical styles, from modern metal to old-school rock and punk, DEF-CON-ONE has been described by the organizers of Bloodstock Open Air festival (where the band played in 2011) as a bar fight between MACHINE HEAD, SLAYER and PANTERA.
DEF-CON-ONE is on a mission to spread its sound and infect the world with songs such as the “Warface” title track (audio stream available below) and “Steeped In Pain”, which offer up huge slabs of aggressive, groove-laden riffs, beats and vocals.
A solid couple of years of gigs in 2011 and 2012 increased DEF-CON-ONE‘s fan base and saw them play the length and breadth of the U.K.
